Have seen the pictures. It's a very nice car.

Is there a way to fix the ORVMs and the broken wiper in the Impreza? Else, I will have to let go off the car. Because I see only that broken wiper whenever I look at the car now a days and it feels terrible.

Also, I forgot. I have a Red 1965 Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe too from Shelby Collectibles. Its so stunningly beautiful and how could I forget.

A very good model, I am liking it (as opposed to your normal show of regular cars).

@ All: The mechanism works just like a regular car, you rotate the lever. My 1960 porchse 356 also has the same, never opened in fear of breaking it .

Thanks Guys. The '61 Imperial is from Road Signature and the car has operable all window panes, telescopic radio antenna, folding seats and a detachable soft top. Its just a friction push-pull on this model for the window panes.

I agree it would be the ANHC. These China made regular road cars sell for crazy prices. I have seen 1:18s of the ANHC, Laura, Civic, CRV on ebay. I remember Gift centre having the Laura for 5k. Total waste.

Some Chinese made cars like Roewe and MG cost a bomb,like MG 6 costs around $190 that is more than some Kyosho Ferrari's.
