I just bought a high-quality 1:43 scale diecast car for the ridiculously low price of 100 pesos. The box states it was created by “MasterWorx” but the car’s bottom states it was made by “Toy Zone Inc.” It turns out that the car I bought is a limited production run Tom Daniel Rad Ratz Tijuana Taxi but without the correct packaging, the tubes coming out of the sides of the engine, and the animal horns at the front.
I love the “1st class interior, 3rd class fender seats and top-mounted 2nd class seat and chicken coop.” (Yes, there is a chicken inside the coop.) At around 4 inches long, the detail is quite good. The black parts (except the tires) are metal; the rest are plastic.
