Johnny Lightning Pony Power Garage Box sets

After Johnny Lightning was sold to Tomy, it was only a matter of time before the brand declined in quality and offerings.  Towards the end of 2011, two box sets were my last purchases of Johnny Lightning die-cast.  It wasn't long afterwards that production stopped entirely.

I found these Pony Power Garage sets on ebay.  Each box set included two cars, a collector card, a pair of ramps, a car cover, two sets of rubber wheels and rims, and a tool shelf.   The extra tires and rims are nice for guys like me who like to switch out the wheels.  The ramps and tool chest make nice diorama pieces.   Not sure if I'd ever use the car cover, though.

In this box set, it comes with a yellow 1970 Dodge Challenger and a gold 1965 Ford Mustang fastback.  The Challenger is adorned with Rallye rims and Goodyear tires.  The Mustang has chrome mag rims on rubber whitewall tires.  Both cars sport opening hoods for easy access to the engine compartment.

Here's the second set with the same accessories but different collector card and cars.

This set includes a blue 1970 Plymouth Barracuda and a black 1969 Chevy Camaro.  Both vehicles have rubber tires, chrome rims and feature opening hoods.    With the purchase of these box sets,  my collecting of Johnny Lightning die-cast came to a close after eleven years.
