What’s Your Favorite Matchbox Car?

To me, none can compare to this little Group C racer of indeterminate origin. A friend gave it to me years ago (that or I stole it, I can't remember). I never grew up with toy cars and I'm not a miniatures person, but I love this little blue thing to death.

What's your favorite toy car?
