  • New feature: Throwback Thursday


    February 13, 2020... Throwback Thursday... NFS/NFT... there have been a few times over the years that Disney Parks have had some special Cars... I believe these were the first ones... Pirate Mater was a Deluxe Car...


    Goofy Mater and Mickey McQueen was a 2 pack... I got 2 sets from friends... I opened one set... somewhere I have carded ones... if I remember right, retail prices were $19.99 and $24.99 plus tax at Disney... on top of that there were postage costs to have them mailed... these Mater are fully diecast - some Mater had plastic truck beds.




    Before today I didn't realize that Goofy Mater had the floppy ears to go along with Goofy's hat.

    Production code: Day 017 of 2011 at the EAA factory for all 3 of the Cars.


    How many of you have some or all of these 3 Cars in your Cars collection?

    Here is a photo showing the front and the back of the Pirate Mater Car:

              It's Thursday. Unfortunately, the Mattel Metal Mini-Racers that I collect don't have much of a heritage as they are a rather recent toy line. Nevertheless, I'll contribute on this Throw-Back Thursday by featuring two cars that were the first customs that I ever purchased. They came from Eli, but I never knew whether they were prototypes of some sort or just 3D-Printer exercises from a collector/hobbyist. I know that Eli stocked a number of each of them at the time.

              Here is Impound-Boot LMQ (not perfect, as it's the Cars 3 design with a customization that harks back to the original Cars (1) Movie, but hey that's what was available to work with) and Cone-Teeth Mater (from a cartoon episode). I have to store Cone-Teeth Mater on his side because his top hat cone is too tall for my case.
