From the level of detail, looks like a Centy Toys' Scorpio. Is it available in all toy stores? Coz the toy Scorpios which I had seen had very poor level of detailing and with the customary "Red Coloured Motu (oversized with respect to the car) Driver" inside it.

Off-topic:
I also have a black coloured Lincoln town car Limo which you have kept in your shelf and also the rally replica Lancer Evo VII (made by Kinsmart) placed in your shelf.

I even have Kinsmart made Lancer Evo VIII of the same scale. Since it is dark blue in colour and looked very pale in front of the WRC inspired Evo VII, I created my own Mitsubishi and Ralliart stickers on the windshield and rear window. Just waiting for Kinsmart to launch Evo IX (and Cedia too if possible )in the same scale, to complete my Lancer trio.

Hey

How do youll store your cars?

I keep my cars in a bookcase which used to hold Archies above my desk. While the bookcase holds the cars and you can just about look inside Im not happy with the way the visibilty and was thinking of getting shelves made all over the wall to hold individual cars. i.e small shelves big enough to hold just one car. I guess the cars would get a lot more dirtier this way but the wall will look really neat. Keeping the cars all over the room is not an option as Iv had a couple of bad experiences with kids thinking the cars are toys. Any suggestions?

Cheers
Adhish

Yea the car looks really good though the quality is ****. This is one of my favourite cars but only Maisto makes it so i didnt have a choice. It is pretty long maybe a bit less than a foot though. It covers the entire plate that the car comes on.

Nice one Khanak. I was eyeing that model since when but only thing stopping me buying it was the Pink Color. I picked three cars instead of this they were Police Gallardo, Ford Torino Talladega and Chevy Chevelle and 4th was F430. All other cars will wait but not a Ferrari.

yea. it comes in blue.



I think Dippy has one in Blue.

Although the Pink looks a bit wierd I think it goes quite well with the car. Elvis Presley also had a Pink Cadillac.
