btw, my 1960 cadillac hardtop. got this car from a shop way back in 2000. it was in a tremendous condition. the restoration is 85% complete as you can see from the pictures. it was made in JAPAN in 1965. a total TIN model with a R/C (WITH CORD). UNFORTUNATELY the R/C is gone. more pics later.
WOW. Now thats something special. cheers:

Picked this baby for Rs.499 @Lifestyle -chennai. The original price was Rs.2000 and the discount price was because It had a broken door which I could easily fix and the battery was missing. I felt it is still worth buying to click some pics and I liked the finish of the alloy very much..

The Phantom is made by some Chinese Company. It comes in a matte black box with the RR logo in the centre. The detailing is allright isnt really anything spectacular.I didnt take it out of the box but I believe the doors dont open. The reason it is so expensive is that it is made of Resin and not Metal. I have no idea what the advantage of that would be but it looked pretty nice and is something I definitly would want in my collection. The presence that the car has is unmatched.

Maverick - Does Navneet sell any 1:18 BMWs?
