I cant understand Mattel, they chrome plate Hot Wheels parts which sell at a cheaper price and not Matchbox which sell here for $4 ! Maybe they pay their workers in Thailand more than those in Malaysia

Interesting.. I was looking at a selection of new matchbox's of my own and realised the other night that only 2 are chromed bumpers and bases and the other have the dreaded dull grey base that makes me want to cry. LOL

Is the Tesla truck modeled after a real one?

The semi truck is in development and due for production next year but I guess may be delayed because of Covid

Nice cars and trucks and I have said before that Matchbox does a nice job of replicating the original car. I like the 8 window VW bus and the Jeep Wrangler Rollbar is very nice. Great looking Hippie or Peace VW Bug too. Thanks for showing. There are a few in here I would buy if I could find any in town. The stores don't bring in many Matchbox but have loads of the weird looking futuristic Hot Wheel which I don't care for.

That E Type Jag at the top is a good looking model. Is that Spanish on the card? and what is the Question Mark for?
I do like the 1956 Ford Pick up but the one I had was Cherry Red. A much better color for this truck. Here is a photo of the real truck in almost exact shape and look as the one I had. Mine had a Mustang motor in it with a 4 speed Std transmission. sure drove nice to as it also had Mustang updates steering and Breaks. Power not std like the original truck had.

i guess the question mark refers to their website if the purchaser has any queries and the Spanish is there as rather than print separate language boxes for different markets Mattel crams them all on the one box! The F100 does look nice in red too
