Back in January John discovered that Maisto was coming out with a new lineup of diecast cars honoring some of our favorite old school rides. Now they’re out in independent retail and online stores. Most reports have indicated they are available in Mitsuwa and other Japanese goods stores. They aren’t the easiest to find, but they are a very cool addition to the ol’JNC office.
Our favorite is this BRE-themed Datsun 620, but the lineup includes a Datsun 510, Nissan 370Z, Toyota Pickup, Scion xB, and Mitsubishi Lancer Evo X. As the name implies, they are 1:55 in scale and we think it’s pretty darned nifty that they chose to memorialize these classics! See the full lineup below the fold.
