With all the dealers in the area, I get a lot of cool cars passing by.
 
This was one that was parked outside the raceway, as my next door neighbor, the vape shop, seems to attract Japanese car fans.
 
The X-mas wrap over the hood caught my eye, but when I stepped outside, I got a surprise.
 
A right hand drive, 1990 Nissan Skyline GT-R, which became legal to import into the U.S., when it hit 25 years old, in approx. 2015.

To trump that car, in the early evening, while stopping by the bowling alley, a few blocks away, for a birthday celebration, I spotted this guy, in the adjacent lot, on a flat bed, heading to a local resident, I guess as a pretty awesome Christmas gift.

 

Any guess what it is?

Yes.

That was the semi-easy part.

What model?

It' s a lousy picture, so I'll give you a hint.

It rhymes with "well me teepee hive bun thread". Lol

And you're right about the picture quality.

Yes.

I didn't think of taking a pic until I walked away.

My phone camera is pretty awesome for slot car stuff, but is awful at night.

Wonder if that Mustang is one of those limited "Bullit" jobs?

I don't think they sold Bullitt Mustangs, as such, in 1968.

The Bullitt was a 390 GT while I'm pretty the Shelby GT500 used a 428.
