Hello Matchbox friends,
Summer time is vintage car time…at least for me…several smaller and bigger meetings, rallys and lots of fun.
Beginning in August, I went to a small place near the river Rhein called Hitdorf and did that with a very special car – see pic below.
Sorry – pic is from a local newspaper so you normally do get a better quality from me! You know that Matchbox sold a model of that vehicle only some years ago?

With the special protection the trips to follow will surely be safe!
Having fun with our Messerschmitt KR200 Convertible – my Mom and me!
But know show you some new stuff coming:
Rather sad news is that the supreme heroes series has been canceled. Only wave A with four models was produced and the other models shown from coming waves were just samples and not produced. But don’t be too sad – the best of world series is coming and surely fill the gap – check pics of three more models coming:
Lets start with the bike – surely special even in this very special set:
Last time I did ask you about new Matchbox Originals to do and I still keep that question alive. I do get several ideas of licensed vehicles to be produced and surely everybody can name on the point 5- 10 castings never done before and surely worth doing. But I think these ideas will help the design team even more!

I did take the picture on my rallye last weekend – the rallye was called “GoldRace” and took us from Jülich near Aachen (Aken) into the Netherlands and back home. Good weather and lots of fun:
Every team do get a Matchbox model Duesenberg with their own race number on it – so ours was number 2…
From time to time I play with the little explore the world model 😉 You surely can guess its purpose?!
