Editor's response: The Super GT series from Matchbox were re-issues
of older castings with minimal tampos and smoked windows. Universal Matchbox
offered these in the 1980's, often in a two-pack with 1:43 scale cars. This
did offer some color variations on cars like the GT40 and Lotus Europa.
The value of these, especially in non-mint condition is very low but they
are a curiousity.

Editor's response: While I've written several books on other subjects, my diecast writings are limited to online and articles for magazines like Toy Cars and Vehicles. I have asked Henk to consider doing an article on Efsi or Edocars and he is interested. I prepare all the TofTC pages on a Macintosh PowerBook G3 and they are best viewed with Internet Explorer. I realise that when viewed on PC platforms with Netscape, the pages turn out different. I wish I had a solution.
