Upcoming Event: Matchbox Collectors Gathering of Friends

You probably know by now that we love blogging about Matchbox cars here at The Western Diecast Review. It is a little more difficult to find communities around Matchbox collecting than it is to find communities based on Hot Wheels collecting. Hot Wheels have a cult-like following and the annual Collector's Nationals and Collector's Convention are both extremely well attended.

Later this month, Matchbox fans have a chance to experience a convention of their own with the upcoming Matchbox Collectors Gathering of Friends on July 17-19 in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Unfortunately no one here at TWDR will be able to attend. But for those interested, you can find all of the info at the following links:

Mattel representatives will be in attendance, but perhaps the most exciting opportunity of the weekend is the chance to get your hands on some one-of-a-kind Matchbox pre-production models that will be auctioned off. What a great opportunity to get a once-in-a-lifetime piece and support a great cause! 

In honor of the upcoming event, here is one of our favorite Matchbox models, the Seagrave Fire Engine, in full detail!
