    I got 3 blue ones and one yellow one! :dancing:

    And I agree the spectraflame paint like on the 68' Hot Wheels would look great

    Finally found some blue ones, and about 10 of the '62 Mustang Prototype, I only picked up one of those...
    Are there other colors besides yellow and blue??

    I stopped in Walmart today and they had 3 blue Grabbers! I bought all three. They were very hard to find around here. A lot of joy for only $.97 each. Thats all I had at the checkout. The guy at the register gave me a strange look, I know he wanted to ask me a question but he didn't.

    I've still been looking every time I hit a wal-mart, k-mart, or any other place that handles hot wheels cars and I continue to come up empty handed. My son keeps asking me what I'm looking for... I think he's starting to believe that Dad's off his rocker and there is no such thing as a Hot Wheels Maverick, lol....

    These were given to me by a co-worker today. He said he picked up the Grabber at Walmart and got the '70 Mav at a swapmeet for a buck. The detail on the '70 is amazing for a small toy. edit: 1st time pics didn't load for me...I'll try again

    I picked up about 10 each of the yellow and blue Hot Wheels cars...mainly cause they are so cheap, why not! Anyway, that brings my Maverick collection close to 140 cars now. Trying to catch up to my Mustang collection which I have been collecting for about 30 years...have about 700 of them. :cry:

    I bought three of the Blue ones at Walmart last week.
    Had one out of the wrapper on my dashboard at the car show the other night, got a lot of comments (y)

    I wanted to paint one to match my car, how are you disassembling/reassembling them to paint?:huh: Looks like once you drill out the hot rivet on the bottom it won't go back together
