[quote=MHNCO;502815]And a MkII
Every year around Thanksgiving Wix use to market a high-quality die cast car, and one year it was the GT40 MkII. Most O'Reilley outlets are allocated a few of them...IF Wix still does that. It is a very high quality model if you can find one, but every time I ask about the Wix commemorative car at the parts counter I hear that Wix is not making the commemorative models any more. Too bad...it is perhaps my most realistic die-cast. Both the hood and the back hatch open, steerable wheels, working suspension, etc...
Just thought I'd mention it in case you have not thought of that source.
One year Wix did a '55 Chevy and the box had a clear covering on one side, sort of like a window. The inside of the box was printed to resemble the inside of a garage. The box had a "flap" covering that "window" and when it was folded down there was grass printed on the inside of the flap...complete with the "ruts" in the grass where the '56 had done a peel-out. Great fun...I gave it away to a 12 year old for his birthday.
I'll keep my eye out for 40's.
Retired twice, now back at work, but still attempting to age disgracefully
