5.0 out of 5 stars Another Mack Gem
Great reference book for any Superfast collector and it contains the full range of MBSF models and variations up to & including the 2004 year. Plenty of pictures at the back of the book to enable easy identification of any MB superfast model you might have but, with usual space constraints of course, it cannot show everything MB has ever produced since 1969.

3.0 out of 5 stars LOTS of data, few pics
This book is a great technical reference for those looking for variation listings. It does NOT provide a lot of pictures, or back story. A little more content on the development of the Superfast line would have been nice, but this book does serve a purpose to those chasing variations of certain models.

I also have Vol II of this book, and it is the same format.

This review is from: The Big Book of Superfast Matchbox Toys: 1969-2004 Basic Models & Variation Lists (Paperback)
Great reference book for any Superfast collector and it contains the full range of MBSF models and variations up to & including the 2004 year. Plenty of pictures at the back of the book to enable easy identification of any MB superfast model you might have but, with usual space constraints of course, it cannot show everything MB has ever produced since 1969. For a greater range of model pictures, you are going to have to get both the Mack Vols 1 & 2. If there are minor criticisms of this reference book then it's the usual Mack fault of listing too many variations of only subtle difference and/or having to wade through pages of say the #38-E Model A Ford Van with its 566 listed variations when this could easily have been listed in A to Z order to make identification easier. Also, there are the occasional errors through out the book showing possible lack of proof-reading. Pluses are the cross referencing between US & ROW issue numbers making this book easier to use than say the Mack 3rd edition Encyclopedia. Overall, a professional reference book for anyone remotely interested in Matchbox collecting from the novice to the serious collector. I look forward to a further updated version of it including the rest of the decade. For anyone seeking MB history there are plenty of other sources, including books from Matchbox themselves and heaps on the general web. One can understand & appreciate the author not wasting valuable reference space on that material in this SF only volume running from 1969 to 2004.

As I stated in my review of volume number 2, you need both books to really get the most out of either volume.
