YES!!! Cheerios, 1969. The box said I could get a reg whls #41 GT 40, but they sent me a SF one instead. My older bros said it was lame and cheapend the look. I agreed. Then promptly wore the thing right down to the chassis cuz it was so fun to play with! I brung it to school with me and everywhere else. Still got it too!Great one,what about the cereal offers for Matchbox cars???
That's an excellent point. I absolutely would not have given mine up either.Nothing could make me give up my old Matchboxes, I would have paid the extra 10 cents.
Was??That's an excellent point. I absolutely would not have given mine up either.
I was 8 then and still would have felt funny about it even at 6 when I distinctly remember making a conscious decision to to keep my cars in a case and not scratch them.
I was an obsessed little bugger!
Thats why we are here :lol:Was??
I took pretty good care of my Lesneys, too. Never would have traded any of them in.
No, it was a USA exclusive late 1970 early in 1971 for a number of months.The cards were printed for Lesney´s New Jersey factory which actually put the cars inside the blisters.You can find these on ebay in USA or toy peddlar, with common less desirable castings like 56 BMC for around $20 :wave:I've never seen that card before. It would be nice to have 1 for the collection.
Was that mainly over in the UK?
