Haha, this is pretty ridiculous. It reminds me of back in 2007/2008 when I was collecting Tamiya's instead of racing, before people felt their was a financial crisis and before Tamiya started putting out re-releases faster than new releases, people were paying up to 5000USD for a NIB Porsche 934 Black edition, USD2000-2500 for the Sand Scorcher and Rough Rider and ridiculous prices for the Avante and Egress as well... I see the appeal of vintage cars, but at what price... my 1/2th scale (Suzuki Alto) cost less!

Having actually bought and raced one was possibly one of the worst cars ive ever owned. The only good thing about the car was the bumper. Its not worth more than £300

The other thing i find very surprising is that any of these Tamiya's are shrink wrapped.
I used to work in a toyshop that sold a lot of tamiyas around this time, i've sold a few Egress's, many Avante's and far too many run of the mill cars to mention and also made them up for customers too and not one of them ever came from RiKo (Richard Kohnstam) the distributors in Hemel Hempstead shrinkwrapped.
I'm not saying none of them were shrinkwrapped but i never saw any that were.
Still not worth 2 grand no matter what it is though!
