I had another video game geek moment and picked up the LONG AWAITING GRAN TURISMO 5 Collectors edition. This game has been LONG ANTICIPATION by not only myself but millions of other racing fans. This collectors edition contained a game guide, keychain, 1:43 Kyosho Diecast model with Playstation and polyphoinic logo’s along with GT5 logos.
Thanks to my Buddie JAY I also came home with some kick ass Muscle Machines stuff he designed/worked on while playing with the toy game. I also was able to score some VERY HARD to come by HotWorks D1 stuff as well as a cool freebie AE86 Initial D ride. Thanks a BUNCH Mr. Jay. These items will be in VERY good company with their other long lost JDM friends as well as displayed proudly!
And the HARD TO COME BY STUFF…. Mr. Jay put alot of hard work, blood,sweat and years into these lines. And I would have to say his hard work was definitely my PEAK in collectiing diecast. ***AND I BLAME YOU FOR EVERYTHING MR JAY!!!*** heh Thousands of dollars hanging out in cases, boxes and shelves. I can add these 2 FINE pieces to the collection!
Never Mass Produced 1 off Birthday Super GT NSX for the Owner at the time of Muscle Machines daughter:
Never Produced/Packaged ’03 Skyline Coupe
Thanks again Mr. JaY! Who needs SDCC when cool ass guys like you hook a unfortunate idiot like me up! SPEECHLESS STILL!
For the last 4 years I have had my eyes on this certain car which has been hanging out in a friends office. Every time I came in contact with the car I tried my best to unhook this car from my friends office shelf and no go. Well, recently I traveled to his house while I was in California and FINALLY I was able to miraculously PRY this off his shelf. A HUGE THANK YOU to Mr. Jay aka JDMEGO for being super kind in letting me get a hold of this car! What a guy!
I have had the release information on this particular Ebbro x Tomica model for a little while and just was awaiting the release. And just a week before I headed out of town I noticed one had popped up on ebay. So I quickly connected with my Japanese mini car shop and asked if they could their hands on it. Luckily for me they had 1 in the shop. I quickly bought it up and with their SUPER FAST EMS shipping it was at my door in 5 days. ROCKIN!!
I have a cool connection with a Gent in Chicago. Somehow he gets a nice amount of older Ebbro Super GT/JGTC race cars. I got yet another HUGE installment from him the other day. The first package was of 14 Ebbro’s with a second smaller package of 2 received the other day. I took a few pictures of the really common and SUPER RARE Nissan’s included in this parcel.
SUPER RARE Pennzoil Nissan Skyline R34 GT-R
Common for now Calsonic IMPUL Nissan Fairlday Z
G’ZOX SSR HASEMI Fairlady Z
Ands a Stock J Collection Fairlady Z
I receieved a rather inexpensive steal off ebay of this kick ass Hiroto Xanavi NISMO Nissan Skyline R34 GT-R from the JGTC circuit. My original had met some “moving” damage i.e. broken wing and mirror ( I was able to fix with a little modelers help). But this was the RIGHT price for a boxed version. I scooped it up quickly and it showed up at my door promptly.
Along with my previously posted Nissan Skyline R32 in police liveries I also received this VERY anticipated Lexus SC430 Team Open Interface Super GT car! As with EVERY auto release this model is immaculate! I can’t capture its’ beauty with photos, but I can get close! With a sealed body shell just like all the Japan racing circuit car releases. you have to spy the details from the outside, but just as a real car you cannot miss the fine detail on the inside. The fuel cell,roll cage, tach,gauges are all fully visible. Another fine model to join my growing Auto Art Family!
The WIDEBODY is KILLING!! I LOVE Japanese aerostyling!
I have been awaiting the special order I placed for this Police Livery Kanagawa-KenKei Nissan Skyline R32 . This thing is BEAUTIFUL! From the detail in the light bar, interior detailing, to the emergency lighting around the car. The attention to detail is of course Auto Art bread and butter! I am very happy to add this to its’ brother Skyline R32 and R34 Police Liveries from previous releases. As with those past release, this is ALSO limited edition. 6,000 pieces worldwide. It comes with a Certificate of Authenticity and is also numbered on the display base . So it was a KICKASS JDM toy day!! Lexus SC430 Open Interface is next!
