Special Notes about 1970 Mongoose I and Snake I models:

1. They came in blister packs. In the pack they had one side sticker applied and a sticker sheet with all 5 stickers.
Sticker sheets typically sell for $100 to $200

2. Blister packs can have either US or HK made models.
US have thick creamy paint and clear windows.
HK have dull paint and blue windows

3. The US models also came in the Mongoose and Snake race set, l
oose with no stickers applied and a sticker sheet for each car

4. The blister packs were included in the Shell Gas station give-a-ways but mostly just the Mongoose.  If I had to guess it was 10 Mongoose for every 1 Snake in the give-a-ways.. 

Finding nice models with all stickers is near impossible.

I have so many cars right now because I have not listed any of them for probably 10 years.

My plan has always been to match them up in pairs, but that was a low priority that has not made the to-do list.

Special Notes about 1971 Mongoose II and Snake II models:

Extremely hard to find, only came in blister packs.  US and HK made.  All Snakes are white and the Mongooses are blue.  The US version comes in Blue and Light Blue.  The HK version is just Blue.
Rare to find with complete stickers.
Sticker sheets can bring $200

The Mongoose II is the only one of the 4 models to be painted in Spectraflame and not Enamel, so toning is an issue with that model.
