DRAGBUS! Tomica Dandy Volkswagen VW Transporter, Made in Japan

A lot of Hotwheels collectors are into the Dragbus craze and I am just wondering if this Tomica Dandy VW bus was the first one to equip a wing on a VW bus.  Could this be the precursor of the Dragbus?  I wonder which one came first.  This Dandy is a vintage made in Japan specimen in perfect condition.  I got it sealed with a tape and I was the very first one after the factory to open it.  This baby could be at least 20 years old.  This model is really old but is still very mint condition.  Even the rubber band is original that holds the 2 bikes on top of the roof.

Let me know what you think guys!

    I have a similar Dandy VW Panel Bus, albeit the motorbike... I won this as a contest price.
    Great choice!
