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?!

Please dont send that Caddy out with those off road tires.
Those wheels with the Cadillac are horrible!
I know I am being picky but the flag on the passenger side of the Dodge Charger Police is wrong…… the stars should be towards the front of the vehicle
Yes indeed, a terrible combination to say the least.
I noticed that on the flag it should be reversed! I dont think there is another wheel that has rubber tires that fits the bill, please post a link to one that would seem tow work better.
You fellows really think so? In my opinion that die cast Cadillac's wheels don't appear terrible nor unusual. Incidentally and on a more positive note I'd like to be able to purchase some grey colored die cast Dodge Chargers that I've noticed for this article.
Wow, love your Messerschmitt, didn't realise matchbox ever made one…like the new Matchbox Tesla, and the Best of the world Cadillac…hope they show up here in the UK. Great report thank you!
