  • Finally a Charger!!!!

    At the beginning of summer, when the TuneUps first appeared, I bought a handful from a German dealer on eBay. What you get is always a mystery, because you can't see inside the box and there are no clues from outside either. But in the end, I was lucky that I got five different models. There are 18 in total (9 cars in 2 colors each). At about 7 or 8 euros the stuff is not exactly cheap, which is why I left it with that.

    It was just a shame I didn't get an old Dodge Charger RT. That's like the coolest car of the bunch.

    By chance I saw a shop today that sells these models and I thought to myself: I can risk one more try! And that was good, because I finally got a Charger.

    The orange one is the standard model called "Rubber Burn". There is also a purple one called "Drag Star". But it is one of the six "rare" models.

    Sometimes you just have to trust yourself. Of course: if I had got a double, I would rant now.

        The easiest way to explain, is to provide this link.

              I never knew there were models with "add-on" accessories like that before this past few months! I just bought the Hot Wheels Advent Calendar (on sale, reduced, natch) because of the 'non-car' "prizes" hidden inside....and the 6 promised cars, too. Haven't opened it yet...too many things to do today....
