My childhood collection includes this selection of Playart cars. I believe I used to get these at Woolworth, where they were sold under the Peelers brand. They also retailed for about half the cost of a Hot Wheels model, so that would have appealed to my thrifty parents.
For me, there is only one Batmobile, and it’s the 1966 version that was built by George Barris based on the Lincoln Futura concept car. This one used to have little red figures inside, but they’re long gone from mine.
The Playart fire truck is kind of a sad rip-off of the Hot Wheels Heavyweight series of trucks. I think the back of mine is held on by a generous application of Elmer’s glue, which you can even see in the photos.
I need a couple of “hubcaps” for my Toyota 2000 GT.
