It’s a Buick Excelle, known in the USA as the Suzuki Verona wagon.

The detail is pretty impressive, they even put the stickers on the back of the sun visors.

The engine is incredibly detailed as well.

I didn’t take that many pictures of this one, but the detail was great. there were some paint bubble blemishes, and the front toe was really far out, but otherwise, great model.

Inexplicably, a few of these boxes had cardboard with Staples tape on it.

This is a 2008 Tianjin FAW Wei Zhi. it was actually super cheap. Only about $10 + ship.

I have to mention, before we go on, that this one came with a couple of nice glasses clothes, and 3 keychains? I didn’t order these, but they sure included them.

Pretty nice. And apparently, I could have ordered it with custom specific Chinese license plates if I wanted to.

This car probably had the most flaws. it had a chip on the rear “window.”

There was bubbling in the paint on the door and on the hood.

The interior paint was still tacky, which was a bit gross. and slightly filthy.
(Maybe the glasses cloths and keychains were to make up for this crappy interior paint?)

Really, really nice detailing on this, although the hood didn’t want to stay open.

Only thing wrong with this, and it was a super nitpick:

The hood doesn’t fit properly when closed.

Gorgeous interior, and the seats even slide back and forth on sliders!
HOWEVER, when putting it back in the box, the door came off!
Great.
