I just bought my first vintage car. Yep, the wild success of this blog enabled me to pull the trigger on a 1966 Land Rover IIA Safari LWB 12-seater. Price tag: $4. It's a vintage Matchbox toy and I thought it would look cool on my bookshelf. I used to obsess over my Micro Machine collection as a kid and I feel like this might be the start of a new one. Gulp.
P.S. There's more of these guys for sale, here's one on Etsy and one on eBay.
