Ok, so I have a few models that I don't bother to put on my list of 'holy grails' as I never expect to get them, I have scored one though, but can you tell me what it is?


To start - it is a 1/18 & is it a car. I will reply yes or no to your questions. Let's see if you can tell me ??



GO!!!

F**k you Photobucket.

Woohoo congrats man! I almost know the feeling of scoring an impossible grail Posted Image

Hmmm if it's not an EU spec car I can imagine its American or Japanese, unless "spec" means it can be a non-spec EU car.

I was gonna guess Spark Yellowbird, but that is far from Australian...:)

I do not know why, but I instantly thought of the Holden. I just did not want to go right out and guess.

Anyways, congrats on the grail, looking forward to some photos.
