ebay link: Auto World Mustang Mach 1
Why I am featuring it: Auto World is my favorite brand and the only brand that I am going for a complete collection (including Ultra Reds). This is one of my favorite Auto World castings and it is a popular one. This car has come out in many colors over the years and all of them look very nice. This one in blue is one of my favorites.

I love this casting. The real life 1971 Ford Mustang was, until very recently, my favourite Mustang. My favourite toy car as a kid was the Matchbox 1971 Ford Mustang in yellow. And when i first got my hands on the Autoworld version a few years ago i couldn’t believe how cool that casting was. That is until i got the Kyosho release, and i realized a weird, inexplicable, flaw in the AW version. What’s up with that front spoiler? Why is it parallel to the floor like that? I have looked online and couldn’t find any version of the Mach 1 with such a spoiler. Kyosho did it right. Hot Wheels did it right. So i have no idea what AW have done here and why, and it puzzles me considering how accurate they try to be (even though they persist in not putting side mirrors).
