The red/white #35 is a tough tough car to find. As for the ones down under they could be a victim of there rarity. So Rare nobody believes there real.That's a $20.00 car
I can remember going into Western Auto and getting my new T-jets for $1.49.My jaw just dropped when I saw the MSRP on AFXcrazy's mint one! South of $5 for a new slot? WOW!
Not me my mom gave all my cars and trains(Lionel) to my 50 year old neighbor who promptly sold them to a hobby shop. All my baseball cards went to a 60 year old uncle who took them to the local tavern and sold them. I did not find out till years later when I came home that they were gone. I don't blame mom though I was king of the pack rats as wife found out years later.I can remember going into Western Auto and getting my new T-jets for $1.49.
Of course it took 6 weeks to earn $2.00 in allowance then too. But that got a car and some AJ's wheels, maybe a brass pan if I was lucky!
Still have a few of those purchases in my possession.
