With my collection once again at my weekend getaway, here comes a simple picture show of a Woodie Wagon collection dominated by the year 1940.

The first cast up for display is the ‘40's Woodie, a very popular cast in Hot Wheels folklore. This is one of them in pre-DLM mode.

This is what the previous example looks like when it’s largely played with since 1993!

Now in 2008 HW Team Surf’s Up guise, #M6900, collector #118. The detachable roof mount was what sold me on this IIRC.

Exiting the Hot Wheels stable and visiting Racing Champions, we see another ‘40 Woodie, part of a set that I partially had to assemble, #2180SS.

Last but not least (at least in spirit, if not quality), is Maisto’s version, a ‘32 I believe. It’s such a shame that these have taken a downturn in quality over the last 15-20 years. They used to be almost as good as Matchbox castings, even if they were largely (but not always) copies thereof.
