Just spotted a video of the Early Cats meeting in my subscription list with some very very nice zokusha in it!
Can you guess which one of these two is my favorite? Is it the Cherry X-1R tail lighted Laurel c130 or the side exhausted and banana tail lighted Celica XX next to it?

This morning I received some amazing news from J.P McCarty: Hot wheels will bring us a kaido racer die-cast!
I still haven’t figured out what car this zokusha is based upon: best fit would be the Nissan Laurel C130, but doesn’t feel right looking at the shape of the door. So can anyone guess what Hot Wheels based it upon?
More pictures can be found on the Hot Wheels Collectors site:
Hattoriworks walked around on the JCCA NYM parkinglot and shot a couple of the kaido racers around there.
The most interesting one is the white pigsbutt Laurel with a 03 number on it. Makes it look like the Japanese counterpart of a wellknown orange Charger with 01 on it.

Some might say it is blasphemy to put the Laurel C130 saloon headlights on a Kenmeri Skyline C110 (especially if it is GT-R styled), but I think it actually might is a fresh way of saying you like best of both worlds.
