I am sure many of you already have this model. I think it may be a Matchbox copy? :unsure:

Very cool! I didn't know it was a copy of the Hot Wheels one. I thought it was a Matchbox copy.
I like that the back doors open. :)

Thanks Dan, fires are out now but now the Santa Barbara area getting hit by devastating mudslides. We've got a half dozen of our guys down there now taking part in the Search and Rescue operations.

Thanks John, good to be back. Been crazy busy this past year with family, work, and union business. Going to try and take time this year to enjoy our hobby again.

Maisto is not the only one who copied the Hotwheels Ambulance.

The Maisto was marketed under the Tonka name for a while in several paint jobs.

Motor Max made a copy of the HW model:

Golden Wheels has a version but the box is a big longer, not the paint job is a rip off a Hotwheels one also.

So many cool variations of this ambulance! I like the Fire & Rescue ones. That's why I love this forum. I learn something new all the time here. :thumbup:

I was thinking how funny it is that the white Maisto appears to be an older one, maybe from the 90's,
and don't they still offer the model in the same paint scheme with just uglier wheels on the new issues. :D

Welcome back Sammy!
