  • White Lightning Slot Cars?

    These worth anything over retail as trade bait?

    On EBAY it does not look like it.

    Scott,

    Generally, the Auto World white lightning HO slot cars are worth about $10 to $15 more than a regular release but it also depends on the particular car. Meaning, if the regular release wasn't a very good seller than the white lightning version won't be worth as much.

      Thank you.

      I will probably leave these for someone else.

        If you were not aware of the history of the White Lightning cars one of those was included in each case of the regular cars. If you bought a case of cars there was no telling which White Lightning car you would get. I know a person that held races at his house and gave out Johnny Lightning cars as prizes to the first three finishers in every race. He bought the cars by the case, so he ended up with a lot of White Lightning cars, he kept one example of each and sold the rest on the net. The White Lightning cars commanded a very high price, so the regular cars were more or less for free. Now the White Lightning cars are called iWheels and they can be bought individually from a dealer.

          The pearl white paint jobs look nice. I buy individual cars of my choice for the bodies and then sell off the white chassis. -- Ernie

              Agreed, some things are just weird. It all boils down to a marketing gimmick, that caught a little wind in it's sails. T-jets are greasy grody filthy lil things, and thats part of their character that I love and accept; but having a white one is like turning your boy loose on Saturday with his friends, dressed in his Sunday best

                  It's not like white boots, I mean white tires on a slot car was a new idea.
