    Funny Hot Wheels issue, this Anglia 105E was issued (I want to say '02 or '03) first in a playset with a tie-in to the second Harry Potter movie, that would be the blue variant, the base is no different on it than the others shown here, none of which have "Hot Wheels" on the base as every other Hot Wheels model I can think of does. The first issue in the Hot Wheels mainline never did get the FE treatment (which had some of us, myself included, wondering if it might be a leftover Corgi jr at the time). There are a few other Hot Wheels issues, but this model didn't get used much. I could all but swear I've seen the bronze Rallye variant somewhere back in the day, but after years of looking I still can't figure out where. I have to admit to myself that maybe I'm misremembering, that this might be a Rit dye custom...I still don't think it is, but until I can show how it was issued I'm leaving the shadow of doubt. Which leaves the red one here...a complete mystery. I know Matchbox and Maisto both had "first car" series done in bright primary colors, but Hot Wheels hasn't done anything like that. I don't know how or even if this red example was ever issued, I've never seen another...
    The image file limits have been reset. We have over-limit warnings for the past 3 months and I've had to lower the image file limits. Upper limits now are 100,000 when we have some images that exceed 5,000,000. I know I've mentioned many times before, but it is very important to downsize images - doesn't matter if they are hosted elsewhere or here. I've set the pixels for no more than 1000 across the longest side, so if you resize to that all should be well. (The new limits are larger than what I typically use, and my images turn out just fine, so I know it shouldn't be a problem)

    Thank you for your understanding.
