Made in China

ჩინური ხარახურა (Chinuri Kharakhura), basically “Chinese crap”, a Georgian expression for the mass of shoddy goods coming from China. I love collecting diecast cars and have seen many rough diecasts in the markets and shops, these seem all to be of Chinese provenance.

A selection of models Made in China: De Tomaso Pantera, Aston Martin One 77, Honda CR-X, Lamborghini Miura and Audi Quattro
