I finally had a chance to fill in some of the holes in my collection; turns out that they are some of the, uh, most striking colors out of all of my JLs:



I hope I'm not disturbing anyone who's eating at this time



I think I will try to separate them with some nice, subdued gray, brown and black cars when they actually get up on the shelves. Thanks for looking!

I heard once, that the(mint)old pink redlines command a higher price.

The reason? because young boys back in the 68-70's didn't want to be seen with a pink car, so they beat the hell out of them,thus creating thier rarity. :freak:

true?
:)freak: that was almost 40 years ago,I think I beat the hell out of most any color, back then)

Very nice additions although I must agree with CJTorino concerning that SuperBee. Looks like a Fashion Two-Twenty saleswoman of the month prize :tongue: :p :thumbsup:
Exactly - I was thinking it's probably what Mary Kay would have awarded to the lady who covers the Woodward Avenue territory...

Great additions! :thumbsup: Good thing I had my sunglasses on! :p

I also agree that the pink Super Bee, it just isn't right. It looks a car for Playboy's Playmate of the Year award.

Kids beat the hell out of everything, that's what makes rarities. But the real scarce items are the oddball things that most kids just don't want. Like pink cars marketed for boys, or that pair of Batman house-slippers only your grandmother would think to buy you for a Christmas present.

In diecast, today's peg-warmers might actually be tomorrow's jewels.

The story I was told buy an old re-sale shop owner -(who charges unreal prices for the little cars he has, so I don't really believe him)- any who the story I was told is that the cars were run through paint durring a change in color. or something to that effect. Sounds Crazy to me. :freak:
