While many collectors are still waiting for the #2019 Hot Wheels #Fast & Furious / Original Fast series to show up at stores still, Orange Track Diecast has your first look at the third mix of the series courtesy of Mattel — and special thanks to @blackn_blue on Instagram who first reported these images!
The Fast & Furious / 1/4 Mile Muscle series is once again comprised of five cars, but only four castings are used — say whhaaaat? #1 & #2 of the series are the brand-new ’70 Chevrolet Chevelle SS casting that was first seen at the RLC Party at the Convention last October. Both the red and the primer gray versions of the car appear in the movies so it makes sense. Aside from that, the ’77 Pontiac Firebird T/A returns to the premium lines as it appears in black, looking like its straight out of Smokey and the Bandit (1977). Rest assured that this car was indeed in a movie. Don’t believe me? Watch the final scene of Fast & Furious  (2009). The ’67 Camaro and the ’69 Ford Mustang Boss 302 round out the series, and while recollecting what film they are in may seem like a challenge, its safe to say collectors are going to be all over these popular Hot Wheels castings.
Below are the images of all five cars, along with the final list.
