That will probably be a collectible bus, because most boys won't buy it.

One of the hardest redlines to find is this hot pink, because most boys didn't play with pink cars.

That's true. Especially the redline models. look at the pink rear loading Beach Bomb. Worth more than a real 23 window delux. Though I have noticed in the last 20 years that it seems like Mattel is painting more pink cars and the collectors are snatching them up for that same reason.
Edit: spelling

And another obscure one--fairly common back in the day. These were given away as premiums at Getty stations around 1992 or 93.

I saw that one the other day too. I couldn't decide if it was single cab enough and ended up I left it behind. Now I'm wondering if I made the right decision.

It is the updated/modern redesign of the older logo with KONI and a red shock absorber inside a triangle because nobody can leave stuff alone. Yes, it looks like a seven.

That’s a good looking bug. One of these days I have to go to one of those conventions.

I never noticed that! I don’t have another to compare it to and see if they are all like that or just some of them. I have a few other newer castings like this I will have to check out and see if there engines are in backwards too.
