    RARE and Hard to Find Cars

    Current as of 1/14/16. I have limited the list to include the Diecast 1:55 scale, some larger rarities like the D23 Mcqueen, and some Playset. Items are grouped into categories below (i.e. very rare, medium-rare, etc). The number next to the item does not matter - therefore #7 on the list is NOT necessarily more rare than #21. I value your input but please understand that there are differences of opinion at times and some may not agree with everything on the list.

    Exclusives- (these are cars released only in a set at retailers but never as a single. None of these have been re-released to date so rarity is there once the set disappears from stores. I removed a bunch from this list on 3/17/15 since many items that were once a set exclusive have now been re-released as singles.)
    1) Murphy
    2) Charlie Cargo
    3) Frank Pinkerton
    4) Santa Car in 3-pack Mater Saves Christmas set
    5) Tim Rimmer (non lenty)
    6) Professor Z Web (aka Noodle Z)

    Items With Only ONE Ever Made (these are cars not included in the rarity lists above since one was only ever made of each and you will never own it and it's really no different than just having a custom car done.
    1) McQueen 'The ONE'
    2) Vinyl McQueen Hauler (only one prototype ever made that was boxed - was sold on ebay in Feb 2015)
    3) Walmart Hauler (another prototype of only one ever made - font of writing was rejected by Walmart - sold on ebay Mar 2015)
