The original target event for the launch was the SoCal Convention in October of 2000. Over-ambitious project plans and unexpected delays pushed the launch into early 2001 at the Nationals in Chicago. A book could be written on this event alone. If you were there, you know exactly what I mean. Needless to say, collectors were excited! A total of 60 cars were sold over the course of 2 days.
All Brightvision cars were sold loose. They were never packaged for commercial sale. All sales were directly to collectors!
Here’s the display case from the Nationals in Chicago, 2001.
