    My girlfreind got me this nice 1:24 die cast Dodge Viper the other day, pretty detailed actually. Thinking maybe making a little collection of them. Has anyone seen a CRX die cast car anywhere, I have found models that you can put together, never one of those.

    I have that same car, lol.. Stripped it and painted it gunmetal to match my real toy. But now I sold my real toy.

    I also have another CRX.. In 1/64? (hotwheels size) I believe it was "muscle machines" that put it out in a "tuners" series.. I think... But they did make one for a very short time.

    I've got a couple skylines I've been meaning to strip down and repaint. I HATE the way they cover those things in sponsor stickers and crappy paint jobs. Who the hell thinks that looks cool?

    I bought the Modifiers 92 Integra and 98 EK hatch. They are pretty taseful. And you can feel like you are working on a real car because it gives you a mini screwdriver, seats, body kit (which I didn't put on either one), wheels, "intake" and "exhaust". LOL.
