I’ve been wanting to add one of these to my collection for a while. But, like many Tomica models, the average price is a bit too rich for me. Eventually one popped up on the ‘bay for a steep discount from a relatively new seller. I got excited and snatched it up. After a long 6 week voyage from the other side of the globe it is now in my hands. While I am excited to finally have a Primera to call my own... I now understand why it was less money haha! It seems the Tamiya hub chroming machine took a day off when this car puttered through the assembly line. Now I am wrestling with the possibility of re-chroming them myself. Strangely, one headlight has also become discolored with age and turned a shade of gold. The rest of the car is tip-top. So, perhaps some re-chrome might make this car look brand new again :)
