Hit the jackpot at Kmart the other day, got the BRE vintage racer, then today I stopped in the Safeway grocery store over in Anacortes today to use the bathroom, was headed back out to the car and the hotwheels rack at the end of an isle caught my eye, right on the front was a Hako.....I was shocked!! so I grabbed it!! it was the only one.

I spoke to a guy at a collectables shop who told me I wouldn't find any more of the vintage racing Datsuns on the shelves around here. So I guess I'm off to the secondary market for my search. Can anyone pick me up one where they're more available?

Even the Hotwheels site only shows having the #32 Red car.

Jeez...you win right away! Yah, what's that all about. The most iconic thing of the time period was the Libre style wheels. Of all the things to not get right.

Sweet find on the 240Z and the BRE 510 guys. I also have been looking all Christmas for these things - I did score the red 510 yesterday at Toys R Us in Coquitlam, and have found an R32 Skyline in red and the white 610ish looking Skyline as well... maybe time to mail order off ebay or something.

Wheels? Pfft.... Morton's name was never on the roof.

I still haven't seen any of those vintage racers. But I did hit the jackpot a few days before Christmas with the red 510 and white Ken&Mary Skyline. I'm now up to 8 and 10 respectfully. Good trading material, I say!

YEa, I pass on the red 510 now, and the ken-meri, I keep going back to k-mart every other day or so to check for the BRE model, but still nothing. I have a few of the red 240 x-mas Z though....I think those are only christmas time...Walmart if tapped out of almost all the hotwheels....they should be getting more soon...I want to get a few of those Treasure hunts....but they are really hard to get.
