MB White Toyman DS

This Matchbox Dodge Challenger White Toyman is a blast from the past. The base has 1975 on it and I think the 'standard' yellow Toyman was released in the eighties. This rare white version was a mystery to me for a long time and I often see it referred to as 'The elusive rare white Toyman'. That...

Rodger Dodger Gold Chrome Challenger (1).JPG

Is it a Challenger? Or is it a Charger. Let me set the record straight. The Rodger Dodger has been called a mixture of both. The body style for the 1970 Dodge Challenger was taken from an old sketch for the Charger. They never used the old design for the Charger, so it was still new when they...
