Lamley Daily: Tomica Limited Vintage Datsun Bluebird 1600SSS Rally

#lamleydaily – December 11, 2017



Model: Tomica Limited Vintage Datsun Bluebird 1600SSS

Line: 5000km to Glory

Where to get it: It pops up occasionally at Japan Booster

Why it’s in the collection: It is hard to ignore a Datsun Bluebird Rally.  Many diecast companies have done one, and I have a good number of them.  But the end-all is TLV.  And here it is.

TLV has been taking on a few iconic Japanese racing cars, from the Super Silhouettes to the Mazda 787b.  The Bluebird Rally fits in, although this replica is a little different.  It is actually from a movie, 5000km to Glory.  Real racing footage was used, and this car was actually entered in races, but there are more famous “real” versions of the Rally, and one is coming from TLV next year.

But this is a nice start.  And it’s a TLV so yeah, I’m in.

And in case you are wondering, the other models from the November 2017 Release:

  1. This is a great looking model. Speaking of rally cars, I think one of the next natural progressions for Hot Wheels would be to do a mid-80s Porsche Carrera rally car in white, similar to the Ford Escort.
