My first 1:18 purchase in years

Walking thru the store they had a pile of Maisto 1:18 @ $14.95 and this one had to come home with me.

That screams you, but I would've been unable to resist it either. Excellent VFM.

You know why Italians speak with their hands? Because they have to work a lot on their engines.

Hard to beat at that sort of money.

I’m not likely to add at GT to my collection, but I was at a family get-together over the weekend and very nearly took home a Hot Wheels GT, but thought my 2 year old great-nephew wouldn’t appreciate me nicking it - a budding Scale143 member in 20 years time!

Nice colour and it sure has very interesting shapes + it's a Ford, so no wonder this had to become part of your collection, even it's 1/18 :)

At that price its almost a throwaway. I have some 1:18 cars in their boxes on a shelf in my garage, this one will eventually go up there.

Nah, this was a one off special occasion. Believe me, they have plenty of cars I like on that pile every week. No interest in buying those.

Thank for the reminder, I have the HWs packed away somewhere to, its a nice model for 94 cents.

I have been keeping an eye out for this one for close to 2 years.

Yeah, of course. And all that self-restraint is why you created this asylum, right? :lol:

Great add for your collection boss, and it surprisingly looks amazing for a Maisto!
