It's a rare diecast that has no issues whatsoever. I am pretty tolerant, and I don't scruple to glue broken mirrors, or even a rear axle. But this is something else.

I just opened a new Gallardo Spyder from Sam's Club, and found...

this:

(Yes, that's me and the Mrs. in the background.)

I'm returning this thing to Sam's Club this evening. I hope they have another one.

And no, the wheel is not in the box, or I'd pop it back on.

Justin, the box was looking mint. The car was still in its straps -- as you can see from the photos.

All's well that ends well. Sam's took it back and gave me a new one. And I picked up a Maisto Ford F-150 truck for my 4-year-old. Let him bang it around if he wants to.

I'd be surprised if it was stolen. When I got a new one with 4 wheels, and tried to remove them to paint the brakes, I had so much trouble I decided not to do it. I'm pretty sure the 3-wheeled car was shipped that way.

Good to hear that Sam's Club gave you a new model. This is strange because I've been buying Maisto models for a long time now and never had a missing parts.
