Becoming a collector item already... Or at least trying to make the younger generation think so.

Matchbox is obviously aware of the Internet hype as they supply a tow truck to haul it to the dealer when the IMS fails spectacularly.

The less you play with it, the more it's worth.

Think low milage.

For model cars, check out Tamiya's 986 (and their 996 GT3)
I thought the tow truck was to take the Boxster to the impound b/c the driver was more than 20 mph over and there was an arrest... I'm from Virginia.
With all the construction vehicles, the scene must be on the interstate in the DC metro area.

I noticed that too. I wondered if someone else was going to comment on it.

It's the odd-man-out in a box full of construction/emergency vehicles. Although it would be funny in a 3-pack with just the tow truck and police car.
