I actually got this months ago, but am just now getting around to posting about it. This is a 1973 AMC Javelin 1/24 scale Promotional model by JoHan. Promos were updated each model year and given to dealers to give to kids, customers, etc. They were based on model kits but had 1-piece bodies and chassis and were molded in color.

Somebody long ago had taken this Forest Green promo and painted it Trans Am Red and installed Cragar big & littles. It has aged since then and just looks the business! The similarity to my real car was too much, so I payed through the nose to win it on eBay. Part of me wants to restore it, but the patina is too cool. It went on my shelf as-is.
