I've seen upside down, facing the wrong way (Matchbox style), and even with all wheels on the card like it was driving on the wall. Are these considered a valuable error?

They are not errors as a error has to be something wrong with the Car itself, not being packaged wrong...... Don't let others fool ya gettin ya to think otherwise. :D

Exactly right. An error is something like PR5s on the front and MC5s on the rear...it would be noticeable if the car is removed from the packaging. I believe, however, that they could be easily faked; therefore, a legitimate error should be left on the card.

Cars that are packaged upside-down, on the side, or facing the wrong way shouldn't even be considered errors, in my opinion.

I think the "City Stunt" Citroen Rally car just didn't manage to stick the landing! As far as packaging mistakes go, I have a different sort of one that I showed on here a while back: A '70 Chevelle SS convertible on a '62 Bel Air Bubbletop card. I'm not generally one to keep my cars in the package, but that one won't be getting set free!

There are many collectors who like those type of mistakes.
As several people have mentioned there are a lot of different types of errros: wrong car in the blister, mis matched wheels, no wheels, missing windshields just to name a few.
Nice finds.
