Highlights

  1. July 2015 Matchbox Ford GT Racer. I found this in York Antiques Centre in England. It cost £20, the most I have spent on a single model this year. It has tremendous nostalgia value, I remember having the car as a kid, it also has the box (most of my other Matchbox models now are boxless).
  2. August 2015 Hot Wheels Stockar. This is a Regular Treasure Hunt, I have yet to find a Super.
  3. September 2015. Hot Wheels Porsche 914-6. This I found at Sabiha Gökçen Airport (Istanbul) part of the Hot Wheels Porsche Series, which I haven’t seen in Tbilisi.
  4. October 2015. Moskvitch 427.A model made in the USSR. In the mid seventies my father had a Moskvitch 427 in England his was mustard brown with a black vinyl roof.
  5. November 2015. RAF 977 Latvia . Another  model made in the Soviet Union.
  6. December 2015. Corgi Mini Marcos. A difficult choice amongst some great models. I thought when I found the Maserati Mistrale that would be the highlight of the month. But them I came across the Mini Marcos at Drybridge Market with Corgi‘s “Golden Jacks” allowing for the wheels to be removed and put back on easily.
