Cars 2: Rip Clutchgoneski

 Last fall when Mattel finally released the long awaited and delayed Rip Clutchgoneski, it was definitely the hardest car to find of the whole 2013 year! He was not a "chase" or a "super chase" car...but sure seemed like it! For months and months, this Rip sold for $40-$50 online and was extremely sought after.

My success story happened last December (when this car was still SUPER hard to find) while I was visiting my in-laws in MD for Christmas. I decided to take a little trip by myself to a couple of the local Targets and Walmarts. I found nothing. I decided to go to one last Walmart stop, that I found on the GPS just a tad out of the way, and thought it might be worth a look...and it was! There was Rip Clutchgoneski. One on the shelf. The rarest of them all. You know I snatched that one right up!

These days, Rip has been re-released in other cases and is no longer a very rare find. He currently only sells for about $8-$10, but I'm happy I found him when I did! The hunt and the find is all part of the fun of collecting and it's extra fun when you find a rare gem like this was. : )
