You will not double post or cross-post the same message in multiple forums. You will not mass-PM or mass-email multiple members of this site the same message. You will not post for the sake of increasing your post count. This is what we consider Spamming.

But I'll let you off this time.

I remembered the story on the 1 off...here it is.
- so no one will find another one, at a garage sale

Holy Grail Of Hot Wheels Cars Is Valued At $150K

You could buy a real VW Bus after selling this toy version.

Part of the appeal of Hot Wheels is their inexpensive price, so it’s hard to fathom paying $150,000 for one. However, the story behind the Holy Grail of Hot Wheels on Antiques Roadshow offers a good explanation why one would be worth such an extravagant price.

The Beach Bomb was Hot Wheels’ model of a Volkswagen Microbus that came with a pair of surfboards. However, the original design was too top heavy and wouldn’t work with Mattel’s Supercharger that shot the toy cars at high speed. By the time the toy company figured out this flaw, the firm had already made many prototypes of the bus. A redesign put the surfboards on the side, and this is the version that went on sale.

The guy on Antiques Roadshow got a hold of this prototype from his dad who was a foreman at Mattel. He thought the Beach Bomb prototype might be worth something someday, but still had enough faith in his son to give the toy to the little boy. The guy is quite smart to listen to his dad because the little VW Microbus is worth as much as a full-sized one today.

The toy is in remarkable condition and looks practically new. According to the appraiser, this one’s dark red body is a less common color, too. He estimates that the car and its provenance give the little vehicle a value of $100,000 to $150,000.

Hot Wheels has managed to stick around for decades, and the brand continues to produce some amazing little cars.

Stick around here and you'll find out more than you want to know (she said dryly).

My son was not exactly a truck enthusiast, but he had a big pile of matchbox style trucks and cars. There was the one infamous night when he JUST HAD TO HAVE a particular car before he would settle down in his crib (I guess he was about 2).

"The one with the letters on the wheels"

The sad thing is I knew exactly which one he meant. Do you think I'm a helicopter parent?

But I hoarded my few little cars when I was a kid. Matchbox cars were so much better--all metal. And they came in such neat little boxes.The knock-offs that showed up a little later were plastic and just wouldn't cut it. I used to sneer at them from my elitist position as a Matchbox car owner.

Just out of curiosity, looked it up:

The top 10 vehicles, by value, are:

(1969) Rear-loading Volkswagen Microbus Beach Bomb (pink): $100,000 to $150,000
(1961) Magirus-Deutz Truck, Matchbox (tan/orange): $11,822
(1966) Opel Diplomat, Matchbox (sea foam green): $6,682
(1965) Dodge Wreck Truck, Matchbox (green/yellow): $5,911
(1971) Olds 442, Hot Wheels (purple): $4,682
(1969) Custom AMX, Hot Wheels (blue): $4,357
(1971) Bye Focal, Hot Wheels (purple): $3,849
(1968) Mercury Cougar, Matchbox (cream): $3,803
(1968) Mercury Station Wagon, Matchbox (yellow): $3,700
(1971) Evil Weevil, Hot Wheels (purple): $2,913

I guess I should have saved some of mine.

Welcome to our chicken thread....I suspect you know alot of us are not quite right ?
