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!

Comments and questions are always welcome.  Thanks for visiting!
