[collectibles] Vanguards Series II Xj Racer

Just purchased a 1:43 scale model from ebay (Item number:
180152690676) and it is realy cool. I noticed that the side mirrors
are both bent into the body, and I was wondering if that was normal
for the models, or even for the racecars. You can see it in the
ebay pics if you look close.–

I have a pale primrose Series I XJ6 by Vanguards in RHD and yes the
drivers side mirror is bent in a bit. The passengers mirror is in
a more normal position. I think this is just the way Vanguards
makes them. I see you own a 1998 XJ8, did you know Autoart make
this car in 1:43 in three colors, topaz, dark blue, and dark red?–
