      It is often very helpful if a picture of the base is there - even if there is nothing or hardly anything on it. On the form or de details / numbers pp. Sometimes you can tell where the car belongs.
      Here also the size of the car (scale) and a picture with the caption would be good.

        I like the idea, I'll sticky this topic. Let's hope people notice it's here.

        Tip for posting pics.
        Choose the attachment icon instead of the camera icon. Attachment is the piece of paper with paperclip. Choose large size for the pic.

              Should a Trol Hitcar made in Brazil be under Hit Car or its own category?

                Jaguar XJ220 Unknown manufacturer. It has been suggested it maybe Rhino, but as yet i've had no proof that it is.

                  This does not look like any Rhino I've seen. Quite nice for an economy model!

                    This 69 Charger has a plastic body and base. It also has the pull back
                    wind up function and says Hong Kong on the base. Motorcade suggested
                    that it could be a Mego Speed Burners. 3 examples are known so far.
                    Searching for the maker confirmation.

                      This trike has a plastic body and base. Guessing it was produced in the
                      early to mid 70's and possibly found in a play set. The rear wheels are
                      very similar to Hot Wheels cap style type from the same time frame.
                      3 examples are known so far. Searching for the maker confirmation.

                        Gonna throw this out there....should the models that have been identified be deleted? That way the models that have yet to be identified don't get buried so quickly.

                          I totally agree but only if the information is carried over to it's new home in the database section.

                            Agree, but the ID should be verifible in some way such as base marking, packaging, etc. Can't rely on a wheel match alone.
