Retro Vintage Mitsubishi Lancer Celeste 1800

I've been on the hunt for this cool diecast for 2 years now and I finally bagged it.  This casting is special to me because my father drove a yellow one in the early 80's.  I remember how h took good care of that car and he never let any of my brothers to drive it.  This was his personal car and the Toyota Crown was the family sedan.

Diapet Yonezawa was one of the very few diecast makers who made a casting of this rare gem.  I believe Hachete Fujinghano is gonna release a 1:43 model soon in Japan.  What I like about this casting is that it came from the same era as the car, the late 70's.

Enough talk and my dear friends, meet my Mitsubishi Celeste 1800.

Comments are always welcome!  Thank you friends from around the world!

My Massive Vintage Diecast Binge

I am now poor but I am sure this blog will have a lot of subjects to talk about.  These vintage items will fly with me tomorrow night to Manila.  I may have to walk home from the airport.

I still have to open the boxes and still check what I have, lots of surprises in this magical box that i got in Japan.
