Just a quick one here. Found this Drag Truck at a Publix last week and figured why not. I like Star Wars and
do not did not! have a single VW drag bus/truck in my collection, so it came home with me!
I actually hate orange and generally don’t appreciate the color palette on this one, so I may trade it eventually. But I’ll hang onto it and see how long that drag truck/bus aura persists. The original bus was an immensely popular casting in the mid-’90s and the mainline First Edition version was probably more difficult to find than its contemporary Treasure Hunts. The casting’s popularity has waned a bit since those days, perhaps in part due to overuse, but it remains popular.
