History of Shot Wheel BPs
Started in 1989 by J.P.S, a San Diego artist, who collected Hot Wheels and Matchbox.
The concept being a packaged version of the Wacky Package Sticker.
The first one created was the Lemlin, to match the car pictured on the sticker.

He also made Mashbox, having a similar wacky card with an actual trashed Matchbox car inside of it.

Some of these have been recreated by others over the years.

In 2006, J.P.S. begain re-issuing some of these as well as some new models.  All on updated cards.

12 items were originally made. (11 Redline & 1 Blackwall)
These were made on both Square and Tall versioned cards.
Others created re-makes of some of these.  Some can be seen above.

J.P.S. recalls the Lemlin being the best seller, followed by the Six Squidder, then Dead Baron.
Approximately 300 were made over the following years.
No per-model numbers were kept.
Several were in proto stage but never released.
