Johnny Lightning Toy Cars and Models Promos

I finally completed my set of Johnny Lightning Limited Edition Toy Cars & Models this week.  These four cars were included with the subscriptions to the now defunct Toy Cars and Models magazine.  The cars are zinc (zamac) finished and are limited to 2500 pieces each year of 2004, 2005, 2006 and 2007. The Dodge Dart, Chevy Camaro and Olds Cutlass have rubber tires whereas the Fairlane only has plastic wheels.  The Olds Cutlass was the most difficult to come by for me, but I finally scored it just before Christmas time this year.

Unknown Brand Toy Bus

My sister went on a trip and bought this bus for me.  I don't remember where she went or when she gave it to me, but it was awhile ago.  It's a little pullback job and the whole thing is plastic.  It has nice little detailing and reminds you that it's a double decker bus with a target location of posthaste.  I was impressed that you can see all the little seats inside for something this small.  Anyways I just thought I'd picture it here and if you know anything more about it please let me know, thanks.

Matchbox Ice Cream Van

Usually, I have a problem with die-cast that are over tampoed like many Hot Wheels.  But the tampoed details on these Matchbox Ice Cream vans are done well and it's fun to read all the different logos, slogans and ice cream menus.  I'm not a big fan of the plastic body especially where it meets the front, as evidenced by the big gap that detracts from the otherwise decent casting.
