Had I found a second, I would have mailed it to you ASAP. Alas, I have not yet. It seems like this is one of the 1 in a case Matchbox cars.

That's cool, but not as cool as group B rally. I could see my self doing something irrational for a Lancia Delta Integralle matchbox or hot wheels. And I would go completely nutty for group B slot cars!

I've also been waiting to come across an oldschool Skyline GT-X (Hakosuka). It exists, I just don't feel like getting it off of ebay.

Matchbox makes a Fit, just not a B-Spec version (yet). I did see a normal snot green 2 before this one, so there's still hope for a racing Fit. Of course, you could always sticker it up yourself...

is Matchbox > HotWheels as far as cool points go? I have several cool HW cars, I almost never pay attention to MB...plus they put the drivers door facing out...thats weird to me . Is it weird to mix and match them together in the same collection? Do I have to abort my current HW collection and start fresh with MB? oh noes...i haz a confuse

In other news, Id love to get my hands on a HW/MB AE86...does this exist...havent found conclusive evidence either way. The closest I came was a offshoot of hotwheels called dropstars which is about double the size of the standard toy car.

Came back to this and remembered the Skyline is Hot Wheels.

I have hundreds of both. I find matchbox to be more "realistic"... For instance, if you get a chance, check out the Matchbox Toyota 4Runner. I have like 5 of them because I'm smitten with just how cool they look. Same with some of the cool old stuff, Lotus Europa, Volvo p1800, etc.

These days, hot wheels is mostly classic muscle, modern exotics, and crazy custom stuff. MB has more real cars. Even a Prius

Either way Mattel owns both.

I have a HW AE86 sitting on my window sill. White with a black hood, red star on the hood, red and black graphics on the side with "Hot Wheels" written in red flames, and "DIMHI" in white. I would say that is pretty conclusive for me. However, in true internet fashion, please feel free to deny its existence.
