I wanted to show you guys what my friend Michelle hand-painted for me a while back. Unfortunately, I couldn't get the zoom feature of my sister's digital camera to work, but the minute detail of the painting job is awesome! The car was originally a Tomica Datsun #60 from 1974 that my family has had kicking around the house forever (sadly, the interior and the canopy part are long gone). The car is 6.1 centimeters long. Just thought I'd share!
Brandon, that's truly impressive! Thank you so much.
Anyway, from a continuity perspective, the Ghost Busters had two buggies, this is the first one from the 1975 series; the second one was way more similar to the 1986 Ghost Buggy (and only appeared on the cartoon, of course).

Yeah, the one she painted was the GB75 Willys Whippet. The third picture I posted was of the same model car when it was originally released (prior to losing the interior and canopy). My friend paints miniatures for role playing games, and is very good at it I would say. The detail of the Ghost Busters logo on the sides of the car is really good (it's amazing that they make paint brushes that small!). I'm really glad to have it, as it is a very unique piece.
I did recently find a picture of myself during Christmas when I was 4 or 5 years old (in 1986 or '87), the same year I got the cartoon Ghost Buggy toy. If I can scan the picture, I'll definitely post it.
