Call the Police!!!!

I am here in Japan on a trip and my wife asked me to look for a nice LV Papillon bag size 26 and being the good husband, i went out to seek that bag.  However, disaster struck because it rained a little bit and i took refuge in a small shop and UNKNOWINGLY it was a vintage die-cast shop.  I just perused at some toys and after 2 hours of hard rain( of course I have to stay indoors) I decided to buy a few toys for their kindness in letting me in their store for 2 hours.

I bought a few die-cast and unfortunately I never found the big LV flagship store in Sakae, Nagoya.  I got lost and never found my my way to the bag store......
Will she believe me? hahahahhahaha!  I better cross my fingers starting today.

Anyway here are some of the mint vintage stuff I got for my myself.  A big 1:28 Eidai Grip Porsche 930, a big Diapet 240Z, a Yonezawa Hi=Ace, a Dandy Hi-Ace, 2 Yonezawa Toyota Crowns, 2 Yonezawa Fairlady 240zand a lonely Mazda Police.

I love Japan Made die-cast!
