Did you take your Cigarbox cars out their packaging and place them in a humidor?

October 13, 2012

I had never heard of Aurora’s Cigarbox line, a hybrid of model kits (REMOVABLE TIRES! WOW!) and die-cast collectibles that was an obvious attempt to ape the very popular Matchbox product. This old ad remedied that void of knowledge. Perhaps it will for you too.

Cigarbox cars made their debit in 1968, the same year as Hot Wheels. I’ve heard of Hot Wheels. I’ve heard of Matchbox. Not Cigarbox. ‘Nuff said.

Call me crazy, but I have visions of people lighting Cigarbox cars with Matchbox cars. It’s like some LSD freakout.
