RLC Exclusive Holiday Volkswagen Drag Bus

By Gary Barnum

 

The holidays are great for bringing out a feeling of warm nostalgia. We think of past holidays and pleasant memories. This holiday season, we’ve got a little nostalgia for you – a long-standing collector favorite comes back to help us celebrate. The Volkswagen Drag Bus makes an appearance! Invite this sweet RLC Exclusive Holiday edition to your collection.

 

Once almost an annual mainstay, the Volkswagen Drag Bus hasn’t seen a release at HWC since our Series 14 edition back in 2016. It’s a welcome tradition, perfect for a holiday edition! Featuring festive candy cane holiday décor and Neo-Classics whitewall wheels with gold hubs, this is the present you want to bring home for the holidays.

That's because RLC cars do not go to the shop. Tomorrow there'll be a banner at the top of the screen click on it it'll send you to the waiting room where you wait until 9 PT. No matter where you live it'll be California time 9 a.m. . Don't be late or it will be sold out and you got to be in RLC member

Yeah, for some reason I thought it had said the 16th and not the 17th, how embarrassing! 

I think I was able to snag one, order status still says "in progress" uggg

Not to shabby sort of makes up for a little bit of a disappointing year for releases. 

 

if you're disappointed in this year's releases then what do you like other than the holiday bus?

Hello
It would be wise to update the calendar because a lot of people are waiting for the next announcements.

Thank you.

Hi, i'v been collecting for many years, i'm really a redline style fan. I've always been a non RLC member this was my first year joining and I didn't buy one item. I bought all the redline stuff last year and I wasn't even a member. To make a long story short I would of liked to see at least 1 or 2 redline car releases.

thank you for the reply.. will you clarify what you mean by "I would of liked to see at least 1 or 2 redline car releases." my limited knowledge of redlines are that they are older cars released decades ago..

ok just received my Bus this weekend and have to say it was nicer in person, then I was expecting.  Loved the color and weight.  So wanted to open the packaging but know that it would devalue it.  This is my second drag bus, they seem to both be nice canvases for cool tampos..

My VW Holiday Drag Bus arrived in a damaged blister. The weight of the bus broke through the rear side if the blister during shipping. Brick should have had bubble wrap inside it to help cushion car during shipping. Very disappointed!

Recieved my bus today. Like others have said I think it's better in person. Very happy. To top it off it was 78/10,000. My first # under 100.

The card was damaged on the corners possibly from bouncing around the shipping box, it is a heavy car. The protector was opened but the car/card hadn't come out. I'll probably open it for display.

Got 2 pieces, both soft corners and bent protectors. The one even had a broken blister. I think they should have added some plastic air pockets or bubble wrap in the box when they shipped it to prevent the thing from moving around.

Same for me, protecto seam outweighed by bus....2 soft corners due to moving around box out of protecto. For 8 bucks shipping, this should never happen.

Received another Pice today, corners totally smashed. Surely this is not the first time they post a Dragbus and should have learnt by now.
