1977 Rally Elba Opel Kadet

I'm back!

One of the few older models done by Detail Cars in 1:43 scale.
This is the Opel Kadet GTE raced at the 1977 Rally Elba driven by A. Bellestrneri.


This Opel Kadet was badged here in the Philippines as the Isuzu Gemini way back during the 70's.

I liked Detail Cars as they proposed seldom-seen-elsewhere rally cars, that is, for this period, not the usual Lancia Stratos, Ford Escort or Fiat Abarth. I had the opportunity of buying the very same model but settled for the road version instead. My only regret is not to have bough both. A very nice model you have here JD!

My brothers best friend Raffy had a white 2 door Isuzu Gemini in the early 80's and i had fond memories of that car. My "Kuya" is 14 years older than me and riding with him and his friends was exciting for me when I was little. Cruising the big boys!

thanks sir Laurent! Indeed, Detail Cars have some unusual old rally cars not seen with the other brands, I wish to get those as well.
