These are all our Hot Wheels cars that were limited run cars from various Collector and National Conventions. Some of our convention cars are in another category (such as Bone Shakers, Cobras and Mustangs). Hopefully this is confusing enough for y'all.
Above is the "1st Annual Hot Wheels Collector's Nationals" 1950 Buick. This is the MMSB "PP" Sample Prototype. This car is one a of a kind sample from an ex-Mattel employee's 'junk'. Still has the prototype sticker on the bottom.
Above is 17th Annual Collectors Firebird Dinner car. At each Collectors convention, there is a dinner given with a Hot Wheels employee/designer speaking. The 17th convention in 2003 was focusing on the 35th anniversary of the Hot Wheels cars, and at this dinner - Mattel founder Elliot Handler spoke. This is car #975 of 2000 produced.
Above is a special Coop designed Merc set from the Japanesse Hot Wheel convention dinner for 2006. Only 2000 were produced and only those who went to the dinnner with Coop got the Dinner sticker box set - which this one has. This is #825 of 2000.
Above is our friend Bob G.'s Coop cars out of the package for a better look - it is rare for someone to do this, but Bob likes his cars on his car rack as so he let us take photos of them. By the way, his Coop set did not have the Dinner sticker - na na na na na!!!
Above is our friend Bob G.'s Coop cars - he wanted me to make detailed photos of the cars - so here they are....
Above is more detailled photos of our friend Bob G.'s Coop cars.

Above is a GMC Motorhome from the 16th Hot Wheels Convention in Irvine, CA on October 3-6, 2002 - only 4,000 made and this one is still in the Blister Pack. This is the final car in a series of 2 cars made just for the 16th Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Convention. The GMC Motorhome casting was designed by Larry Wood. The Tampo design was done by Peter Carris.
Above is one of the limited sets of the 20th Convention Mercury - 1 of 3000.
Above is one of the limited sets of the 20th Convention Billboard trucks - #858 of 2500. Based on the Tow Truck body, the billboard actually lights up - cool man!! Ours was signed by the great Hot Wheels designer Ira Gilford.
Above is the very limited 20th Hot Wheels Convention Purple STAFF '57 Chevy. Not many of these were made, and even less will ever leave the hands of the recipients that received them! This was one of the 2 Chevy '57 cars that were given away to Staff members only. This car is extremely limited! Our understanding is that they only made 200 total.
Above - again our good friend Bob G. took his car out of the package and let me shoot it - we are fortunate that he was able to get one as well.
Above is the 1957 Chevy shot with our 18mm fish-eye.
