A while back I had been looking for parts for my Toyota Celica Gr.B 58064 rally car and I found this beauty up for auction.
I never thought I would own one of these and I wasn't expecting to be the highest bidder, but sure enough no one seemed to be looking or interested in it. I later learned the hobby shop was selling it for the estate of a collector. So I am happy to be the new custodian of it.
I love the runner patina on the body that shows it had some good running days. I may add some new patina to it someday. The slick tires make me think it drove on relatively smooth terrain. The parts are in great shape so I will be leaving this as it is.
The related photos further down are part of a little art project I'm working on :) I also love 1/64 scale versions of the 1/10 and 1/12 scale cars.
If you are looking to learn more about the Dakar Rally I found this video fun and informative.
If anyone knows of other videos about real rally let me know.
