Vintage Tomica - Lancia Stratos

A Ferrari at heart, this Lancia Stratos is one of the holy grails in my collection - any collection. Yeah, it's got one big paint chip on one corner of the spoiler but everywhere else is dead mint.

It's a pretty well looked after piece from the '70s, Tomica did a fantastic job on this Bertone styled body. Tomica with their scarce wheel choices meant your either get their typical button wheels or the dished racing-style wheels, this street-going version gets the former with gold centres to let your imagination to rest of the job to make it looks like the 'coffin-spoke' style wheels

I won't call that flaw, or rather Tomica's signature; those iconic wheels are sometimes used alongside their logos. With working suspension makes more 'exciting' to blast this down the imaginary rally stage.

You mind ask why didn't I go for a perfect model. Pristine vintage Tomica don't cost cheap, with its original boxes it can reach up to US$40. Being a 'homeless' example, it was much cheaper; knowing chances like this don't come often and stingy, I paid close attention to the auction. And being able to own something high on my list is all sorts of win.
