So I happened to visit my local Dollar Tree and Walmart today. I was just expecting six HWs I didn’t find at Kday, but nooooo, they just had to stock Matchbox to sucker me into paying more than I had planned. No complaining on my part.

I took ALL of the A100s, Transporters, Skylines, F150s, and Karmann Ghias. Not much, I was hoping there would be another A100, Ford, and Karmann to keep carded. I got both variations of the Transporter, one with stuff in the back and one empty. I’m not sure which is rarer.

Matchbox made two Karmann Ghia bodystyles. I don’t see a scale written on the base of the new one, but I think this one may be a smaller scale, not sure.

Lovely models; I’m glad I have them.

Okay, okay, I’ll show you the one you want to see now.

This is really well done. Smallish, I’m assuming 1/64 or 1/62, the base doesn’t say. Painted headlights, taillights, even a Skyline badge on the rear.

It’s my favorite Matchbox model of this year so far. That and the Infiniti G37 I got earlier.
