Eidai Grip Toyota Celica LB 2000GT

I bought this   1:28 scale die-cast together with 12 other items last month.  I have some free time so I lazily took some quick snapshots of my current fave model of the moment.

This Celica is getting rare in this condition, almost mint and complete with box with minor weathering.  I love hunting for these oldies and it delights me every time I get to purchase one.  I actually purchased a few (seven Eidai Grips) and I'll be featuring them from time to time.

Holding these vintage items warms my heart, a tingle of happiness only a fellow die-cast collector can understand.  I enjoy looking and holding this particular die-cast because of its heft and size.  Just right.

I hope you guys like it, JDM rules!

I am finally back in Japan after a 20 day mini vacation in the US and in Manila.  February has been a very busy month for me because of my daughter's 5th bday celebration, our 7th year wedding anniversary, a week in the US and constant events and happenings in the month of LOVE :)

First thing i did back here in Japan was sleep.  I missed my bed here in my hotel and and kinda liked the solitude after 3 weeks of rumble and tumble in MNL.  After a 4 hour nap, I took my winter gear and headed straight to the vintage toy store.  I was keen on buying the Lambo Countach Eidai Grip but the color was yellow....and here I am buying a yellow Volswagen.

I saw this rare Volkswagen Golf and I immediately fell in love with it, i have a lot of Tomica Dandy VWs but I never had a chance to see a vintage Japan made VW Golf!  I remembered Komenda when I saw this cool VW.

I brought my point and shoot cam and here are some pics i took in the bathroom :)

I hope you guys like it!
