10/1/2018 — For the last several years, the Hot Wheels has teamed up with the HW Mexico Collectors Convention organizers to produce a limited edition Hot Wheels car. Last year it was the ’71 Datsun Bluebird 510 Wagon in acrylic case (also available for convention in Brazil), the year before that it was the ’66 Batmobile. The fact of the matter is, the casting selection has just about always been great with other years choices to the likes of the Texas Drive ‘Em, Ghostbusters Ecto-1 and ’55 Chevy Panel.
This year, the convention takes place December 8-9, 2018 in Mexico City. The exclusive vehicle will be the Volkswagen Beetle in white, with red fenders and green/red graphics. While I don’t have a picture of it to share, you can go to the convention’s web page and view/pre-order it now. It is priced at $25.00 (+$5.99 shipping) for buyers in the United States. It comes in an acrylic case (w/ cover) and has a total of 6,000 units. Get yours today >>> hwmexicocollector.com
