So, by "Hot Wheels for Adults" they mean "tacky wheels and paint on a vanilla Camaro" that doesn't even look like the concept?

Just to be clear.

If you really want "adult" hot wheels like that, just go get a custom paint job. It may not be "factory quality" but for 7 grand I'm certain you could get an airbrush guy to do some cool stuff.

poughdrew: bikerbob59: IlGreven: cgraves67: Whenever I'm in the drugstore, I still stop by aisle where new Hot Wheels cars hang in their blister packs to see what's new there. If there's one I like, I buy it - for myself.

It's good to know I'm not the only one.

I still have over 300 of them. Not counting the twisted hunks of metal and/or plastic that result from actual use.

God I wish I still had mine as well as my Matchbox cars. Not that they'd be in great shape, but still....

My parents just gave me my old ones (from 1980s) for my son. The old ones were metal bottom, which is nice, but I believe the modern day nicer ones in the $3-$5 range are metal bottom too. I only have about 20 from my childhood. The paint schemes were way worse back then, like a lightning bolt pattern on a purple Porsche 928?


I have about 30 that I have hanging on my cube walls at work. I get lots of funny/positive comments from the guys around here.
