[HAWL] Latest Grabs

Here’s what I’ve been up to lately.

So I found six of the eight cars in Hot Wheels 2015 Porsche series, but not the two that I wanted most, the 914 and 959! I’ll keep scouring.

I’ve been craving some of the realistic eighties castings Hot Wheels offered in that era so I fulfilled one of my want list cars with this Dodge Omni 024 from the 1981 Mainline.

I rekindled another lost love when I bought a replacement for my childhood Matchbox Audi Quattro from the Super Kings series, scaled roughly around 1:43. It’s labeled #K95 and features opening hood, opening doors, and a working suspension that I remember fondly. This brings back a lot of memories.

Also note that the original receipt was inside the box, dated April 1989.
