Does anyone have a list of all the cars in this series? Also did every car have a white lightning for it?

I have my work cut out for me as I just decided to collect this series. Starting from the ground. Are yours loose or still carded?

was there no 1 or 2?
Actually the first number is the release of the Street Freaks that the car appeared in. The actual BWF # is the number after the name of the car. Hope this helps. :wave:

Mine are mostly loose and will all be loose when I have the last one in hand. :thumbsup:

I have a few extras on cards in varying condition. I can send you a list if interested.

I plan on having them loose as well so the condition of the card doesn't much matter. Send me over the list please.

The Street Freaks cars are just the tip of the iceberg. There are over 75 BWF cars in the entire Johnny Lightning line-up.

Really I guess am in real deap LOL.
Man is that an understatement! I started on this same quest just a few months ago. I guess I have only gotten up to about 12-15 of the BWFs at last count, with most of those being the more popular readily available ones. Now I will start picking the rest of them up on by one as I can find them at reasonable prices. Good luck in your quest!

Well, strap yourself in and make sure those belts are tight cuz you're in for a bumpy ride! You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll pull your hair out (I don't know you so I hope you have hair), you'll bang your head, you'll grind your teeth, and you'll love it the whole time!!! :thumbsup: :wave:

I'm up to 21 BWF's...including the ones still in route. Before Christmas, I had none, and kept saying, "Do I really want to go there?" But after Secret Santa (recently discovered as xracer1) sent me about 5...I was on the path before I knew my feet were moving. The rest were a few store finds, a couple of orders, and a lot of help from the committee. I say half the fun of collecting anything is the quest. With BWF's you get a long road. And for those who need to have everything right away, it's a road that can teach patience...LOL!
