Tomica Series – No.84 Toyota VELLFIRE

Vellfire – sounds like some manner of military grade weaponry to me. But Japanese car makers have a habit of making names for their people carriers that sound outrageous. I have to admit, I am a huge fan of JDM people carriers and I cannot get enough of them. Voxy, Noah, Elgrand – all of…

Tomica Series – No. 97 – Toyota Town Ace

Very JDM  is this one. I don’t think you will see the Town Ace outside of Japan or APAC markets.
