Going to need a boatload of that ’29 Ford!!
Is the 29 Ford a new model? Great pictures by the way!
Thank you! …I have good friends. The ’29 Ford was introduced in 2009 in the Hot Wheels Classics Series. There had been a handful of releases of it over the last 10 years.
Thanks for the reply!
Hey Brad, congratulations on the birth of your son! I’m sure you’ll be able to attend more conventions with your son 🙂
Thanks Frank! …Looking forward to it! It would be fun to share this with him.
Lots of great cars but I really like the new AMC Javelin, awesome! How will the 66 Nova Gasser be sold? In stores or thru the club website?
Yeah, I can’t wait to get that new Javelin as well! The ’66 Super Nova Gasser already went on sale (last year) … it was made to order for any RLC members that ordered one. Unfortunately, the only way you’ll be able to get one (if you didn’t order last year) is through eBay or another secondary sales site.
I’d have to say the Custom ’62 Chevy Truck, Gas Monkey’s Hi-Po Hauler and that 29 Ford pickup certainly have my attention. All of them look great, should be a good year of hunting.
