White Lightnings

Postby Quitkjr » Fri Apr 16, 2010 9:57 am

I don't collect JLs, but I do check them out when on the Hot Wheel hunt. Would someone explain what a "white lightning" is? I asked this question before, but I have forgotton what the response was, something about white wheels/hub, white interior/base, white something. Don't know if I've ever seen one up close and personal, so some tips, please, on what to look for. I'd like to pick up a couple.

Thanks,

Quit
I should have started collecting way earlier!

The current white lightning chase takes on different iterations. One series could be white interior/white base. The next could be white tires/gold wheels. Yet another could be pearl white paint and another includes a white motor. Then there's the Lightning Strikes chase which includes body-colored tires. Whew. I'm not sure if I've gotten the combinations exactly right, but you get the gist. Your best bet would be to go to Lightninglane.com and check it out.

Here's one of my WL's. Everyone thought it was a Lightning Strikes, but JL said that for this set, the combination was red tires and clear wheels.
