Hot Wheels – ’82 Nissan Skyline R30

What a choice of a casting!  I really don’t know if Mattel have the adult collector in mind when choosing these castings, but this is brilliant. JDM has made an entry into HW culture but often they are charactures with bad paint schemes aimed at the core market. What is delightful about this is that…
