Good things come to those who wait!!!!!!! And I've literally been watching and waiting almost two decades to score a reasonably priced NIB example of this special Kyosho R/C car. I've passed on most of them due to the high price. For so long they have been hard to find or sky high in cost, missing parts or partially built, poorly painted, etc. This one I found on eBay with all of its kit contents complete. I won the auction at a price lower than expected- and I never win auctions on rare stuff, lol. I vividly remember going to the hobby shop in 1995 to look at this when it was a new kit, as I stared into the wall of all the NIB Kyosho Nostalgic kits! Now I own a Daytona Coupe runner, a NIB body kit,, and a full NIB nitro kit that I cannot believe is in my hands. I fully realize how lucky I am to have these gems. I'm hopeful that someday Tamiya will go nuts and mold a bunch of bodies (and create kits around them) of vintage on-road European and stateside performance icons and cherished classics. Kyosho is currently doing a bit of this on the American classic scene with the 1970 Chevelle and the 1970 Dodge Charger.
