    Muscle Machines blasted onto the scene in late 2000, and immediately after the events of 9/11/2001 introduced a series of patriotic themed red/white/blue models, a theme copied by other makers in the months following. For Christmas of 2001, Muscle Machines offered some Christmas themed 5 packs, and while most of the models were repeated in each issue, some of the models were I recall this Willys pickup was one of the less common Christmas issues that year.

    I get that Muscle Machines tend to be "love them/hate them" among collectors today, but clearly they do have a following, if not quite as robust as in times past. Often imitated, seldom duplicated...which is cause for celebration for many, and equally cause for concern among those that appreciate automotive art in rolling form.

    Merry Christmas to all, and a joyous New Year. I hope the Universe holds blessings for all of us.
    The image file limits have been reset. Upper limits now are 100,000 when we have some images that exceed 5,000,000. 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 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.

    Wes, i was also drawn to the red/white/blue stars and stripes issues.

    i gave up on them. as i hunted them as much as i did hot wheels.but they never seemed to be where i was hunting.

      I first thought the MM's were too novel, and wouldn't sell, I ended up buying about a dozen different ones which brought a smile to my face.
      And a few wheel sets I used on HW VW dune buggies!
