They make them in Orange flavor now!

While I was out with my wife this past weekend we stopped by the local Wally World, it's close and has just set out all their plants, so while she was looking over the nursery I went to the toy aisles. I picked up a Clone Wars figure I had been meaning to get (Not everyone's cup of tea) and passed down the die cast aisle where I was hit with this amazing little guy.

I have said it time and time again, if there is a Porsche 914 on the shelves and it's a different color from what I already have it will follow me home. That's just what this one did. I took a lot of flack on the ride home for buying another one of these cars, but I did point out it had three very important things going for it.

1) It was a Porsche 914
2) It was orange... a no brainer in my book.
3) It was inexpensive!

Some things I noticed on this version is it still has the silver interior, fairly accurate I might ad (not the silver, but the details), it also had a new deco, the "Porsche" decals above the rocker panels. Plus, I don't know if this was the case with all of them because I have only seen the one, but the signal lights are all missing their paint deco, front and back. I figured if it was like that on all of the orange models because of the new deco on the sides, maybe cutting into cost. I will have to check if I see another one.

Even with the signal deco missing I think this is a great little find and I for one am glad they are getting some mileage out of this car. I would welcome some more colors... hint we need a white one, a black one and a silver one : )

You can't go wrong with Matchbox or Hot Wheels. They're very inexpensive. I just picked up a Hot Wheels '81 Delorean DMC-12 yesterday for 98 cents!

I love Matchbox cars more so than Hot Wheels in many ways. Both of them are still some of the most cheap fun you can have out there with toys. : )
