Tomica 1976 Winnebago Motorhome and 1978 Oldsmobile Toronado XSR

Today I came across a garage sale that was held by a Hot Wheels collector. He had a nice bunch of Treasure Hunts and some Hot Wheels Classics still in their blister cards. But I was mostly interested in the box of mixed loose cars from the 1970s. I passed on a few interesting Matchbox and Hot Wheels with parts missing. I don’t see a lot of old Tomica cars around, so I picked up these two. I liked these when I was a kid – and still have all of mine from those days – because of their realistic detail. The Winnebago Motorhome from 1976 is faithfully rendered in 1/97th scale.

Like many of the Tomica Pocket Cars, this Oldsmobile Toronado XSR has opening doors
