The concept Alfa P33 looks like a boat on wheels to modern eyes. Playart copied the Corgi in this instance.
The Dinky Jensen FF shown above has been with me since I was 8 years old - a bit chipped and sunfaded but not too shabby...

Yes, prolly Geneva 1968 or thereabouts - I like the Alfa Carabou better than the P33........
Here is the Corgi De-Tomaso Mangusta that inspired Playart

Playart just called this one ´UNCLE car´ regarding Oldsmobile as being irrelevant as a selling point

Guess I've never seen many Play Arts - didn't know what all they had to offer.
I only have the Toyota 2000 GT and some Toyota thingy.
Looks like they had some interesting releases - any full size US land barges?

What began life as the Corgi oo7 car, lost its special features and was copied by Playart - oddly the hardtop version which could have been made using the same baseplate and front bumpers has a new different baseplate - Playart missed a trick. Mercury wagons are coming this week, but i dont have the Playart Custom Barracuda to lineup against my redline.........
