    .....my mum found these decals in some old photos....they were given away with Hot Wheels AMX cars as a promo when Mattel sponsered the John Woolfe Racing team....I had them in 1972,when Dave Riswick gave them to me after a parts buying visit to his shop....now these cars are worth a lot of money..$2000.00 seems to be the going price...the car is long gone,but found one I might be able to restore..........oh thats my Redliners club AMX from 2000...just using it for display...
