I had already posted these two to get some feedback on special stories attached to them. They seem to be Code 2 models. The first is the BMW, and it appears that these were promotional items for BP Netherlands in about 1988. Nice detail: box was still sealed. So yes, I obviously keep the box but I cracked it, first person since it left the assembly line. I'd like to think it is fairly limited (not using the evil die cast word "rare" here).









The Beetle is another Code 2, I believe. Again, I already gave a preview of it but nobody responded which means I don't know if this shop really existed and if this promo item is for real. I'm not a cardboard collector by any means, but again, I shall keep this box.

The BMW is really great. A very unique convertible with the windows up. Good for you letting it breath for the first time in 24 years. I would keep the box as well, for it is also "vintage". :thumbsup:

Well, it says:

9633 Woodsboro Pke (Md Rt. 194) Walkersville 4 Miles North On Rt. 194 From Rt. 26

Edit: those muppets from Tyco put the VW logo on upside down. Front and back of the car. Pfff!

Double edit: http://www.fcarnahan.com/pg/code.html << info on Code 2. Looks like there was a time when every shop that was happy to pay for it could get a Code 2 promo car done....and the 1996 copyright on the back of the Beetle box fits that note.
