HWEP results with Plasticprints!

When I showed a fondness for Plasticprints Matchbox Mustangs he had pulled in an eBay hawl, he offered to trade. And I have to say, I’m thrilled at how nice these cars are!

He’s already shown his half of the trade and I’m excited to show what I got.

1965 GT 2+2, 1968 Cobra Jet, and 1970 Boss 302.

Such a beautiful set of well-detailed cars!

Such a distinct rear end on the Mustang makes them easily identifiable. So many details.... I’m not sure why the rear glass on the ‘65 is rounded on the bottom but I don’t care about that.

A really nice set of cars. MBX Collectibles are much like Hot Wheels 100% in the amount of details. Mattel should truly consider bringing both of these lines back.

Its nice to be able to see the concept and the end results next to each other, even if the right one is a Cobra model.

I’m happy that I could make this trade because the cars I received will stay with me for a very long time.

The return of the tri-bar tail lights were a huge hit, even if they are horizontal. Ford would correct this on the next update.

I’ve had a couple of these collectibles for years since new. They are a bit dirty from being displayed, but thought they should join their new siblings.

A couple of Mustangs I bought to display. I remember loving the throwback boxes.

I don’t remember what year I bought these but it was many, many years ago.

Obviously, there’s a reason I chose MustangFan for my name. My love of cars in general is much like my love of different types of music, but I do have my favorites and with cars, Mustangs are at the top of my list.

I love Porsches almost as much, and the parallels between Porsche and Ford would make an entire story on their own. It’s pretty cool that the cars I love most from these two companies have enjoyed such a long production history.

I had to bring in the purple Cobra I hawled recently. The blue one remains carded, otherwise it would’ve joined in on the fun.

There are many Mustangs that have been produced in diecast form and these five are some of the better, affordable ones I’ve seen from the past.

The gang’s all here!
