Tomica's Inglourious Basterds

I had always assumed that these six Tomica cars are the oldest in my collection. For as long as I can remember, they suffered from catastrophic corrosion. The other trait they all shared-- they're all two door mid-70s Japanese coupes.

Nissan Sunny 1200GX

Nissan Skyline 2000GT-X

Toyota New Mark II-L

Nissan Laurel

Nissan Sunny Excellent 1400GX

@josh: Sorry, I threw them away after taking the pictures. They kinda look like health hazards, don't they?

Was the Skyline 2000 GTX with a rear hook? I miss the one I was having when I was a kid.

@Anon: Yes! The hook is for towing trailers. Because what else would you do with a Skyline?

Look so close to the original cars.
Rusty and used I'm glad you through them away as they might give you a headache trying to restore them and you sound like you wouldn't cope with a ache in the brain
