My Truck Is On Ebay

By alwaysakid

Every once in a while I list something on ebay as it helps my wife think I'm thinning my massive accumulation of stuff. When I saw a die-cast car identical to one I have go for $585 on ebay, I decided that would be a good item to list so I can say my toy car collection is smaller than it used to be (at least until I buy another one). It turns out that this particular Matchbox vehicle is in a rare paint scheme. I like it a lot, but it's not one of my favorites, so I thought I'd see if the ebayers want it more than I do. If it goes for the starting price where I listed it, then I'll be the loser because I really didn't want to get rid of it that bad. I don't expect to see it go for $585, though, because I don't have the original box, but I thought it was worth the risk to list it and see how it does. My collection is big enough and the truck is small enough that it won't really leave a hole.
If you want to also watch to see how it does, it's ebay item 120999333770, or just go to:
And, of course, if you want it in your collection, please put in a bid.
This has got to be more exciting than the jerseys and jackets and stuff we usually see for sale on Motortopia's blogs.

I just remembered that you were selling this theother day, so I thought I'd check in to see how the auction went. $417 and change is W-A-Y out of my price range!

Well, the auction ended and it sold, so my diecast car collection will be down one vehicle. It sold for $417.12! I guess it must be really rare. But I'm very happy to let it go for that price!

It looks to be in mint condition so you should receive full value for it. Especially is at least two or more collectors get interested in it.

I've recently been getting more and more into collecting Matchbox/Hot Wheels/Johnny Lightning cars. I wish I could justify a bid on your pickup, since it looks like a real winner to me! I'll tell some guys I know from another website about it, maybe generate some interest in it for you.

It sounds like a real collectable! I hope it sells high for you! And yes, it is a lot more interesting than the cheap knock off jerseys, jackets, shoes and whatever other junk the spammers are flooding Motortopia with!
