There was a thread about them at some point. They were promotional models iirc. Pretty sweet little keepsakes; I wish I could find one of a Tatra T87.

Yeah, I've got about a dozen of them. They are fairly common, although originals can be expensive. Originally they were given out as dealer promos. They were cigarette boxes, some even had a place for a lighter. Nowadays you can buy reproductions, although current promos are still available too.

Well there's not much info I can add, except that JDM car dealers are really cool about giving away free swag, and these cast cigarette holders were quite common in the past.

Like I said, I dunno how rare or collectable these things are, but Bergin's Corolla which is boxed and mint is super cool :) At swap meets in Japan you see these things sometimes. I think my Luce was Y3500 or something. I spotted these for sale at a classic car show in Tokyo a few years back.

It's a Luce Rotary, one of only a few thousand that Mazda made in the late 80s. The very last rotary engined luxury cruiser :)

...sorry for the epic thread hijack, Bergin :D
