This week I received a gift from another collector from San Diego. He sent them as a RAOK, Random Act Of Kindness, in response to a RAOK I had sent to him in December.

He was looking for the Purple Passion Mystery Car variation, which I happened to have and sent to him. I also sent two Treasure Hunts, the Avanti and Impala. RAOK and double RAOK! But I never expected anything return, so it was great to get Hot Wheels Classics. We can’t get these in stores here!


Now the eternal question: To open, or not to open? If I was a little boy I would love to run these cars! They would live in the sandbox! How extravagant for a boy to play with a ten-dollar car.

I’ll probably open it.
