If you're not checking out our 'Chase vs. Regular' series of posts, you're missing out. It's really a thrill to compare the chase versions of cars with their regular counterparts and denote the differences. Well, it's a thrill for a diecast nerd like me, anyways.
Today, let's look at a VW duo from the Greenlight 'Lost' film reel. Greenlight develops collector tins that are shaped and decorated like film reels. They include 4 vehicles from a themed TV Series or movie. Today's 1971 Volkswagen Type 2 hails from the 'Lost' TV Series Film Reel. I never watched the TV show, but it was certainly popular in its day and the film reel is fantastic, regardless of whether or not you like the TV show. We reviewed the entire film reel here.
The VW Type 2 is easily one of the coolest models in the reel, with it's rusty, worn patina look. The Green Machine keeps all of that detail intact. The chase looks just as much like a barn find as the original, except instead of two-tone blue and white, the blue roof is Green Machine-green, albeit an intentionally deteriorated and dilapidated green. It's a subtle Green Machine, but a sharp looking one. I think you'll agree that this is a fantastic pair! Enjoy...
