I purchased this for a couple bucks at a Department store when new. Luckily I took good care of most of my cars. I always thought there was something special about this one even before I knew it was rare.



This Galoob Miami Vice car is supposedly rare, though it doesn't seem to be that valuable.

These are probably my two rarest cars. They are both TOMY Turbos from 1986. I bought both them new around 1986 for probably about $5 each.

As far as I know that is the only T-Bird of this model that TOMY ever made, and it is much rarer than any of those #12 T-Birds. I recently saw one of these T-Bird bodies sell on EBAY for over $80 without a chassis, and a BMW M1 like this one sold for almost $100.

I am still hoping to get a few more rare TOMYs. I want the red/white #7 Porsche 917-10 TOMY #8769, the red/white AFX Lola TOMY #8770, and the Lime Green #17 BMW 320i TOMY #8760. TOMY supposedly made a blue/red/white 240Z TOMY #8771, but I have never seen one anywhere.

Here is a link to a Facebook section devotoed to HO Slot Car Collecting: http://www.facebook.com/groups/6097893636/

I have been posting pics of rare/unusual cars and other HO items there for a few months now. I was trying to post something every day but of course life sometimes gets in the way.

Great site. Thanks for the link. That is the only pic of the Blue TOMY 240Z I have ever seen other than on the back of my 1986 set box. I think that is the Thunderloop Thriller box, but since it is in my storage shed I can't check right now.
