1980 Greyhound MC-8

The Hot Wheels Greyhound MC-8 was only produced in 3 variations which are different only in their country of origin. The two 1980 releases were made in Hong Kong and Malaysia, the 1983 version is the somewhat more valuable Mexican-made model. Somewhere along the way in my collecting adventures, I picked up one of these that was badly worn and missing most of the tampo. Without the familiar blue and red arrow graphics, it didn’t pack a lot of punch, so I found this one in a little better shape on eBay.
