2001First Editions(Please excuse the poor quality of the photograph, it was one of the first ones taken.)
 Zamac CustomSomeone made a brief habit of stripping all the paint off of some cars and then selling them on eBay as Zamac Customs. From the color of the windshield, we can tell that this is a First Edition car that has been so processed.
 CustomA limited edition car from the >>Bat City Hot Wheels Collector's Club (link dead, try >>here instead). It appears that this is a First Edtion car that has had the original tampos carefully removed, and the Bat City stencils applied in their place. This is an excellent custom, one of my favorites.
2001Autozone Exclusive 
2002Collector's Guide ExclusiveIn Canada, this car came with the 2002 Collectors Guide on a short, un-numbered card.
2002Yu-Gi-Oh! 
2002  
 Car Wash Playset 
(Photo Coming)2003O.H.W.C.C CustomA limited edition custom from the >>Ontario Hot Wheels Collectors Club. This custom is the 2002 regular series car with the tampos carefully removed (although not as carefully as the Bat City custom), and what appears to be an ink-jet printed sticker placed on one side of the truck. Then have then stuck it on their own card, which appears to have been printed by some form of ink-jet or color laser printer. Not the best custom in my collection, but a fine effort.
2003SegaObserved tampo variations, mostly in the contrast of the deep blue (the background "alien" figures; base variations "China" (pictured) and ???; tampo variations appear to be consistent with base stamp variations.
2003Malaysia 20-car Gift PackThis is a collection of 2003 model year cars celebrating over two billion cars made in the Mattel Malaysia manufacturing facility. It includes an exclusive dark green Fandango decorated with what appear to be flame tampos. Described on eBay as:
This is the Fandango from the Malaysia 20 Car Gift Set! Last Year Mattel Had a Contest Between it's 3 Hot Wheels Producing Plants in Malaysia, China and Thailand to See Which Plant Could Produce the Coolest 20 Car Set. This is One of the Hottest Products of that Contest! Features Include Metal Flake Green Paint, Flames Down the Sides & Roof and the Hot Wheels Logo on Each Side. And on Top of All that, it is Limited to Only 5,000 Worldwide!
2004Tag RidesThis example has a yellow tampo on the roof; I have seen a variation on eBay which claims a green tampo on the roof.

This is a collection of techical information, much of it learned the hard way. Consider it a lab book or a /info directory. I doubt much of it will be of use to anyone else.
