My photos make it hard to see, but the license plate says 'Not Kato'. So that is pretty clever. I still hope to find the purple alternative release.

Now that makes me want to find one of those just because of the play with the license plate! Nice touch by JL! :wave:

This Hornet looks great, they've been gone from every place who's stocked this series so far. The background/ building in your photo really gives off a true '70's vibe- especially with the other cars in the shot.

Nice looking model that I'm getting ready to order. I agree, your diorama really adds to that 70's vibe. :2thumbsup:

That car is awesome. I saw it at Wally World along with the new Thunderbolt and the Nash convertible. I couldn't afford all three so I left the Hornet... I hate it that these cars are creeping up to 7 bucks each!!!

I'm not sure I ever found that Hornet in Virginia. I have a few, but the green one I probably missed at the time.

Nice car. Nice model. My intermediate ("Jr. High") PE teacher/coach was a marshal arts expert and a friend of Bruce Lee. He occasionally played a henchman who (of course) battled Kato and the Green Hornet, on the TV show of the same name. I almost think I should collect Green Hornet diecast for that reason....and because I collect Batmobiles. (Both are "law enforcement" of a sorts, so loosely fit my "emergency vehicle" focus...)

Laugh but I thought you were talking about O.J. Simpson's right-hand man Kato.
