collectible of the day: Johnny Lightning The Italian Job die-cast MINIs


Soon after the launch of the MINI, there were many die-cast cars produced.  But probably none more sought-after as these Johnny Lightning models for The Italian Job movie.  They were part of Johnny Lightning’s “Hollywood on Wheels” series and consisted of an Indi Blue MINI Cooper, Chili Red MINI Cooper S, and Pepper White MINI Cooper.  One could buy two sets: one “clean” and one “dirty”.
