    FINALGEAR TOY CAR WORLD TOUR Pt.2 - Zastava 101 Edition

    So, new car, new world tour!

    The car in question, as most of you know, is a replica of the Finalgear Zastava 101.


    Since the toy car, as well as the original, came from Croatia, I took the liberty of starting it's journey, and took it on vacation!

    It went to Zadar a bit, saw the sunset and the Greeting to the Sun thingy






    Then it had some beach time




    Where some kid tried to steal it!


    And then hopped across the border to Bosnia & Herzegovina


    Mostar Old Bridge




    Rama Lake





    Most pics taken by phone son excuse the poor quality. And because of the low quality of my brain, it didn't see a few more interesting things, sadly. But oh well, next time maybe. It'll be going to far more interesting places anyway

    Now it's waiting for our trip to the 10th Ringmeet, where it will be handed over to, erm, someone!
    I totally forgot to bring it around my home town, too, hehe

    So anyway, I declare the second Finalgear Toy Car World Tour OPEN!

      Hooray!

      ... I ask Herb Helbig, vehicle synthesis manager for SRT and a member of the original Team Viper development group since day one, if they'd ever thought of adding traction control. "It comes with two," he says, pointing at my feet. "Learn to use them." Got it.

            This should be fun!
            "Well, that's fine. You waste your money on a Mustang or a Ferrari. The fact is that if you want a sports car, the MX-5 is perfect. Nothing on the road will give you better value. Nothing will give you so much fun. The only reason I'm giving it five stars is because I can't give it 14."

              I took my copy (the round-the-world-car will meet the real-thing later on) and compared the colour...to say it's spot on would be the understatement of the century:

                  This thread was lost in the gazillion others I just ignored since I was in Europe, sorry.

                      Yeah, I owe you pictures.

                      So far, no one contacted me.

                            How about gaasc in Honduras, he'd be the closest from people who have applied and haven't received it yet.

                                Sounds like a plan! What would be best for you, sending it to my postbox in .us or directly to .hn? I think I can trust the Honduran postal system with the Zastava and some postcards.

                                  I suppose sending to .hn would be cheaper, but I am not sure.
                                  Please PM me both addresses so I can see which one is best.

                                    PM'd Redliner yesterday night with both options.

                                        So...how's the plan going? Well, I guess we can wait a bit more, it's only been THREE MONTHS!


                                        Also, if I could get paid for the car, that'd be swell. I kind of forgot to mention it at Ringmeet.
