A Year of Finds A Year of Finds

We’re ten days in and I’m still here posting about 2018 things. Nonetheless, I’d like to give some attention to some of the older models that I’ve been fortunate enough to snatch. Old is relative, because some of these are actually still in production/readily available today. I know there’s a few 1:18'ers here that…

I usually don’t do posts like this, but I got so excited that I had to share these here. And since Scott’s title was so perfect, I had to copy that as well. To hell with original content.

I saved the best one for last. My pride and joy. The Maisto 911 GT3 RS 4.0.

With so much focus on collecting all the 911 variants, I keep forgetting I even have this model. That’s not fair at all because this GT4 is actually good. Like, really good.

Thursday, September 6, 2:48 PM. It’s another cloudy yet surprisingly hot afternoon here in southern California. A mysterious brown package, approximately 16" x 8" x 8", has descended from heaven and landed at my doorstep.
