233/365 – They just stopped in for a quick water break.

226/365 – I saw one of these in real life once – yes, here in Denver. It was beautiful, and I felt bad that it was being driven on one of our worst streets (Colorado Blvd near I-25). For now, I’ll have to settle for this Hot Wheels Treasure Hunt version. There is a Super THunt, which fetches about $75 on eBay. And while I would like that one, I’ll just do a wheel swap on this one soon. Just need to find a set of wheels that would be appropriate.
224/365 – I’ve shown a Herbie VW Beetle before, but that was a mainline with regular tires, etc. This one is from the Retro Entertainment series, which gives it rubber Real Riders tires, and more detail in the paint and tampos. This is why I try to get two of everything, as the Retro series is definitely a collectible line, but I love to take pictures of the higher quality cars. Not always able to get 2 (like my Retro Ghostbusters Ecto-1 or Batmobile), but I am working on those too. In the meantime, enjoy this movie classic.
