One of my favorite eBay sellers was having some loose exclusive Hot Wheels up for auction. I placed my bids on several cars and these are the cars I end up winning. Being from Asia (Singapore to be exact), we don't get that many exclusives in the stores and to get what we desire, online shopping is usually the place to acquire them.
I have narrowed down to a few eBay sellers who don't ship items overseas at an exorbitant rate. It's out of fairness to ship a $5 car for $15 with each car adding another $2 to the shipping fees. Finding people who play fair is like finding a needle in a haystack...
OK, enough of my rant. Let's jump into the cars I got in this haul. First up is from the Hot Wheels Drag Strip Demons series, Don Prudhomme's Army Snake Vega. This will go nicely next to my Army Snake 'Cuda.
Next we have a few from the Hot Wheels Highway 35 World Race series which was a TV series at a time commemorating Hot Wheels' 35th anniversary.
Wave Rippers' '55 Nomad.
Scorchers' Red Baron
Roadbeasts' Power Piston
The only Johnny Lightning of the lot, a 1969 Impala Convertible. It will have company soon, I have another bunch of Johnnies on their way.
A pair of '57 Chevy Nomads from the Hot Wheels 100% series.
Also from the Hot Wheels 100% series, a 1969 Plymouth Hemi GTX in black.
The are from varoius Pop Culture series. A Mike & Ike '71 Chevy El Camino which I would like to take apart and have it murdered out - Metallic black with a matt black roof.
Also another one I'd like to customize but haven't decided which path to take, Aquaman '65 Ford Ranchero. Purple perhaps? To compliment the yellow tinted glass.
This will be one which I will leave untouched, Carvel Ice Cream '57 Buick Wagon.
