#lamleydaily – July 19, 2017
Leading up to the Matchbox Gathering Convention this week, it’s gonna be all Event Exclusives from years past, leading up to showcases on this year’s models.
Model: Matchbox VW Porsche 914-6
Line: 2010 Matchbox Gathering of Friends Convention Exclusive
Where to find it: Ebay, if it ever pops up
Why it’s in the collection: Are you noticing a rekindling of love for the 914? I am talking about in the car world. Maybe its Magnus, but the 914 is having a bit of a resurgence. Hot Wheels has their 914, and Matchbox has one too. Matchbox beat HW to the punch, and their stock 914 is far superior. In my opinion.
And this Gathering Exclusive is the overall winner. Outside of the logo on the hood, this model is CLEAN, and drop-dead gorgeous in spectraflame blue. It is also one of my favorite Gathering models, which is saying something considering the beauties Matchbox puts together every year.
