Matchbox Blue Shark Revival

Found this on the pegs at the local Wally World. Looks like it came straight out of Speed Racer, so I had to have it even though I don’t usually do fantasy castings.

Little did I know the Blue Shark was a casting from 1971, and this is a tribute to the original. In addition to its vintage 4 spoke wheels, it has a full metal body and chassis:

And this sucker is heavy! The wheels are well-trimmed and roll very smoothly on perfectly straight axles, this car might be a contender for downhill racing due to its heft. Highly recommend picking this up if you find one.

I’m considering building a little stunt track with a ramp so I can literally jump the Shark!
