Thanks for the update, Pete. It will be months before they hit Columbus. Nothing has come in, just a handful on the peghooks for months.

I need the two Karmann Ghias, the exclusive 10 pk (for the T2 Bus), and the Ambulance.

The white Vista came out in 2009 but a gold w/ brown panels mainline is supposed to be released this year 8) . It might be the Walmart with special tampos exclusive OR a mainline AND also the exclusive.
