    That's a very good question. How about "a blessing of Tokais?" :)

    Lovely collection indeed!

    I haven't been on here much lately but whenever I'm on there always seems to be a few new threads about Tokais. Has anyone else felt that there's increased interest in them on here or is my mind playing tricks?

    There does seem to have been a bit more interest in them recently on here, yes. Particularly amongst people from countries where they are nowhere near as easy to find as they are in Britain.

    Yep, and it seems not just here. Tokai appears to be on a fora curve peak lately. ;)

    Yep, and I'm also seeing more dealers starting to stock, sell and advertise (new) Tokais, here in Belgium and Holland.

    I think it was around 1982 or 3 when the word was well & truly out about Tokais!

    By the way, if it's a 1983 Goldstar, I assume that it has the BLOCK DECAL that was exclusive to that year?
