Aurora and Speedline Collection
May 19th, 2016 - Video No.113
-- Please Subscribe to My You Tube channel --
 
I have collected them for a long time and have about 325 of them in my collection.  Still I do not know that much about them other than I really like them.  From what I have read Aurora tried to compete with Hot Wheels with these models but discontinued them in about 18 months.  They are very fragile compared to any other brand.  There are a lot of broken and damaged ones and very few mint ones.
 
They come in 3 basic styles:
Cigar Box - colored plastic with either rubber or plastic tires, these came in minature "Cigar Boxes"
Speedline - metalized plastic with either rubber or plastic tires, these came on blister cars
"Cheapie" - the final style which is very cheaply made and do not have windows or metal bases, these came on blister cards
Some of the plastic tires have silver paint spokes

I found these advertisements:

   

There are track sets and accessories too plus carry cases and display boxes

There is also a gift pack which included 12 cars which I have had a few of but there is also a giant gift pack that had I think 24 cars.  I saw that style only once and would really like to get one someday.
 

 
Hello!
7/1 - Sorry this page is a mess but it is going to have to wait until after vacation to be repaired.  Thanks for stopping by!

7/6 - our vacation was cut short when Katie had a fall on her  bicycle while riding on a boardwalk with an embedded
Trolley track rail.  She got a broken leg and we had to go to the hospital and then back home.  
So we are back at home and I repaired this page today and added the boxed models
