Why I am featuring it: This was one of my diecast treasures discovered when I visited a flea market in Barcelona, so for me it has memories attached. I scour local sales and markets when I go abroad for unique diecast souvenirs of my trip, or for future restoration/modification. I found this on a battered table amongst porcelain teapots and I loved the colour, the patina and the fact it’s a Spanish made diecast of a Spanish car… a perfect souvenir. Originally I planned to restore it but I feel it’s earned the wear and tear. On my return home I gently cleaned it up and left it. And it’s all the better for that I think.
