Of course I really dig those early PM cars. The ones I like are the box sets of 4, 8 or 10 cars. They display nice and still are fairly affordable (when you can find them). The FAO sets are the best.

Good for you Ray !! You obviously are very happy that you found a good deal. That's what makes this hobby so cool . There are so many sources of 1/64 sized cars and trucks ,that you can always find what fits your style..

There are quite a number of HobbyTalk members that would buy those as well. Most likely because they are early PM.

I personally would pass on these babies ... even if they gave them away. To me ,they don't look anything close to the full scale cars .. no detail... no realism .. nothing that would make me want to pull them out of the package to do some slight modification .. or to just admire for a job-well-done by the people that made sure it was made to look "right".

I don't know ... I'm a bit weird about my hobby .. but that's what turns my crank..

I think...good deal!

Had an Commerative Custom GTO do very well at some gravity races once

Is there some spark of renewed interest in these?

I have a gaggle of these in a box, but I think most all are white lightnings, and I know there is 1 A bonus and a chrome Toys R Us 4 car set... if anyone is interested

Rob... I wish I didnt read this. "The first Playing Mantis release of any kind". I have all of 2 and Muscle Cars USA1. (That is the series with the yellow Mustang and the red GTO on the blisters?). Well, missing a few special cars like Toy Fair and such. I may as well go for the entire set of Commemorative 1 to finish it off. That would be cool to have the first 3 releases. Would also take a lot more wall space. Does anyone know how to find a post that was made a couple years ago that had a printable list of all of this series. I had it before and if I remember right it was 3 pages long. Thats what scared me off back then. Thats a lot of cars! This may take a while.

I too am on a mission to complete the commemorative sets. I have some extras (most still on the card) if anybody wants to drop me a list of what they are looking for.
