Opening of the Very Rare HWC 1968 Cougar

I'm sure some of you will be asking:  "Why in the heck did you do this?!  It's going to lose all it's value."

I open all my Hot Wheels cars.  I don't intend on selling them, so why should I care?  It's much more fun handling them out of the package.  Besides, the blister was already cracked.

So here's the Hot Wheels Collector's official website "apology" car.  5040 of these were made total, sent only to those who'd ordered and received the HWC's Rodger Dodger.  From what I gather, a lot of the Rodger Dodgers arrived mangled because of poor packaging.  This car was to make up for that.
