With the demise of the Vanguards brand, there is not a lot left in terms of classic British cars that I am able to add to the Garage. So I have opted for what one could call a hybrid.
This Isuzu is actually based on the Hillman Minx and was made under license in Japan. However for all intents and purposes, I will just pretend that this is a slice of Blighty.
Lovely detail as you would expect from Tomica, especially with those wheels which I reckon are near perfect. Look at the interior as well – periodic loveliness. And we have lashings of chrome.
Also the tampo detailing is superb for a model of this size.
I don’t really go hell for leather with regards to TLV but this is rather lovely. With all the Euro boxes that Tomica have produced, how cool would it be to have some BLARG within this range or such? I think it would be huge……
