Should you have to ask? Of course we love to hear/see more. That's half the reason we're here.

Here is a start, some of the stuff in the box I can't remember what the error is. When you are looking at everyone of them you can compare and see the differences right away.


these are obvious, a wrong wheel (spectacular casting), a miss-tampo wheel and a missing windshield

these aren't as easy to see. The Daytona base was misaligned and split when it was riveted. The corvette has an extra window hanging out the pass side and the copo has sticky on the roof. How does that happen?



this group is a wrong wheel, a must-tampo wheel and a misaligned base


this group is a wrong wheel and TWO backwards interiors! This casting is the most frequent backwards interior in my experience, could be because I'm checking them out though

these are mostly from a wrong wheel box the first three are obviously just the wrong wheels. The elmiraj is interesting since it shouldn't have been on the same line as anything with those wheels


found two of these zamac vipers with the same error, it ends up this is a transition piece where the next version had the rear wheels all around so they were prepping the line perhaps. The snoopy has a backwards base


next up I've always studied the special edition cars and lucked out with these crazy sti wheel errors


these are cool; the Thing has pink windows- it's a known variation and was found in the blue and the brown versions. I found two of the blue and one of the brown. The 993 is missing the windows and the Land Rover axle is...


I've never seen that, ever before. One guy showed a pic of one like this on a jeep on one of the Hot Wheels forums and he was accused of faking it; the consensus was that it's impossible because of how they are assembled. I pulled the case off the pallet and put them on the pegs so I know this is not a custom. Anyway...

I'm going to leave it after this one since we could add a few pages with these.

all of these are paint issue, my personal favorite is nekkid errors 


no tampos at all! Excellent!

These are a tampo "shift"(don't usually go for these but this is very pronounced) a nekkid and one that looks like it slid through the press


this is neat, the 911 is just missing the red, the Cuda is double tampo and the Ducati is missing its logos


these are all nekkid. Love them


I fanned them out so you can see what they are supposed to look like

I love the no-tampo cars! Got any mis-packaged stuff? I remember a long time ago I found a blimp on a Ferrari 308 card, still have it. This was before they had fancy card art so it's just the name that gives it away. Of course these types of errors are the easiest to fake, I suppose, but I still find them interesting.

I do, most of mine will be because of the casting though. Unspun is probably the rarest error, we call them riveted but really the post on the casting is spun down to the base when assembled so finding a carded model that's not be spun down is a rarity. I have a few but I met a guy who ONLY collects unspuns and sold/traded almost all of mine to him since he was passionate about it. I respect that.

This is my favorite series of all time, Car Culture. Some cases shipped with 2 of each car some shipped with 1 of 1 car and 3 of another which made it hard to get two complete sets but I've done that. Don't do the math on that...

I dig that RTR Mustang.

Walmart had a good haul for once, in both Hot Wheels and Matchbox. Rangers in two colors (just noticed the red one has the tampo out of place a bit), a neat Overwatch car, and a Ford Falcon on the left side. Two orange Mustangs, an SVX, and rally Porsche on the right side.

Received my Carney Plastics 144 case today.  There was much delay because of Covid19, but they were a super company and kept me posted.

They had to switch gears and do a lot of plastic projects related to Covid.  Very understandable.

The product is everything they promised.  Super high quality.

Now my dilemma is with 144 cars go into this one.  laugh

Took off a chunk of Sunday and mounted the case in the shop.

I thought I had 144 formula cars, but there were duplicate and many that were a larger scale, so i loaded the top with Ferraris...

Happy with the case.  See no reason to keep the cars in boxes.  Some are 50 years old.

Just got a Big Air Bel Air. like this:

Looks to be based on a '56 Bel Air.  Big shocks front and back, gauge pod on the dash, race seats, gas can in the trunk ...  It begs for some detail painting.  I like it a lot.
