Car #30 from my box of gems purchased at the Collectibles shop at the Rutland Vt. Mall. This is the #1 find for me. I didn’t exactly know what I was hunting for until I actually got it in my hands...

Back in 2017 when *insert amusing line here* was posting the Colossal die cast collection... there was one car in the Playart group that caught my eye and its been lingering the back of my mind since. It looked kinda like a Trabant. Front and center, cute little yellow car.

So, when I found out most of the collection hit the shop at the Rutland mall, this little yellow car popped back into my memory. It was going to be the focus of my hunt. I had to find the little Trabant.

To my surprise, the playart cars were all still kept together in their collection case. Sure enough, the car I wanted was right there! But, it wasn’t a Trabant at all. It’s none other than a DAF 33! Which is so crazy cool. I gladly purchased it and have been fawning over it since. Playart really produced some extremely quirky cars back then. I have so much respect for the brand.
