A fellow collector recently purchased this car. It's from Johnny Lightning Direct and has polarlights.com on it. Any info would be appreciated.



Sorry for the blurry pic.

Polar lights was a division of Playing Mantis that did other types of kids toys and I believe they also produced the model car kits for PM.

You could only purchase the car directly from Playing Mantis back in the day.

I saw them last week in a KB store in huge factory outlet mall. All of the cards had some damage. I didn't bother buying one.

Does anyone know if any of these are still sitting in KB Toys Outlet stores?
Scott, I can try hitting the outlet that Dadvball talked about, and add this to the other Meat wagons that I still haven't sent you yet :drunk: :thumbsup:
