Remembering Japanese cars from the past

WTF: Hotwheels Skyline KPGC110 GT-R Christmas bargain

Yesterday I was doing my Christmas shopping (actually us Dutch celebrate Sinterklaas) and had to buy some wrapping paper in a bargain store called Blokker. My eye fell on the bargain Hotwheels sale and couldn’t resist going through the bin. My heart skipped a few beats when I found the beautiful 2011 edition Skyline GT-R KPGC110:

For a bargain price of only 1.99 euros! That’s less than 3 dollars. WTF?! Lucky! Bargain!
So I dug deeper and found three more KPGC110s and a few others! (more on that later in this post) Unfortunately no hakosuka Nissan Skyline 2000GT-X or BRE Datsun 510 Bluebird. 🙁

In the end I bought two KPGC110s, one for my son and one for me (at work):

It already blends nicely into its new techie environment. 😉

I also found a few American mopar cars and the package of this Skyline GT-R BNR32:

Some miscreant opened up the package, nicked it and put back the empty package. Unfortunately no other R32 to be found…

So if you are living in the Netherlands: go to the Blokker now and just hoard that J-tin!

    Cannot find these at all, here in Canada

    That’s what I thought at first: probably won’t be able to buy them in the Netherlands but apparently we got lucky. 😉
    But doesn’t Hot Wheels sell at all in Canada or just the 2011 series?

    The Hako came out first, and I have not seen one of those also.
    We have lots here, just no vintage Skylines.
    (R32 to R35 are easy to find).

      R35 is also easy to find here, but I never saw the R32 before…

    I have two C10 Skylines for sale, as well as s30z BRE Treasure Hunts. And I saw that red R32 here in store – I have a brown R32 from previous year. 🙂

    I think it’s a really impressive bargain for a 2011 Skyline GTR KPGC110, which is one of the latest sports car that many sports car enthusiasts would love to own.
