Now that Corolla looks great

We had some Corollas over here, but I can not recall seeing this version in The Netherlands very often

Oh wow! That's one of the cars from the 'black hole' of diecast models: cars that nobody make for some mysterious reason. I remember the real one quite well and naturally would love to have one in my collection, but usually with Tomica, I have the 'excuse' that they're not the right scale, so I manage to survive without them, but... on the box of this one it says 1/45! This is horrible, unbearable This car is the right size, so it must now be added to my ever-growing wishlist!

Tomica larger scales are slightly harder to find.

There's always Yonezawa Diapet with a couple from the '20 year gap' era.

we really should have a subgroup for Tomica.

They've got the largest in the Japanese car range.

Just found a photo of a Mazda Roadpacer (same as an HQ Holden Premier Kingswood).
Sadly feebay has drawn a blank for now.

I like to have one. I remember them from the 70s. There was a 1200 and 1600 cc engines. My father bought a red 1200 and boy how they rusted. But in the 70s every car did. If someone knows one for sale of swap, send me a message. That is for a model not for the real one because i don't think there is one left.

Cheers, Ron
