I found mine off Amazon.

- Ironically enough I was up in Traverse City Michigan last week for work and literally found a 1:36 scale IS300 at a Meijer Grocery Store. (Manistee, MI Actually) - Literally God's Country. Too bad, I never grabbed a pic.

Anyways, here's my 1:36 Scale IS. Sits comfortably on my desk and never sees rain or snow. ;P

No way LOL! Funny how this thread just popped up on my email feed. I went to CVS last night and I found the same IS300 die cast with the same color. I immediately bought it without hesitation. (: I can post pictures if anyone wants to see. So there's three people with the same die cast model? LOL

its funny because the pride and joy of the collection is hidden behind the small 1/64 cars, its a Tamiya TL01 is200 kit still sealed in the shrink wrap, when these came out no one really wanted them, so not many were sold, and few are left that have survived the bashing and crashing, that's my baby right there hahaha
