There is a total of 20 cars in Ford's Garage, out of which 7 are Mustangs. Yay!! Anyway, let's get back to my second Mustang in the Garage series:

Rubber wheels look good, but they don't spin smoothly. Well, it's not like you're going to use a Garage series car in a race anyway.

Overall details and quality are much better than a basic Hot Wheels die-cast, but with a price tag of RM20 (roughly equivalent to 3 basic Hot Wheels), it may not appeal to every collector. Do I love this car? Absolutely. But is it worth 3 basic Hot Wheels cars? I'm not so sure.
