Park’N Plates: ’68 MUSTANG

One of the more popular, collector-favorite Hot Wheels #Mustangs of the last 20 years has been the #’68 Mustang — or ’67 Mustang, or Custom Ford Mustang … whatever the present naming convention may be. Back in the early 2000s, it was always a harder to find car […]

Flyin’ Aces: ’70 DODGE CHARGER DAYTONA

Granted, the International Race Of Champions (IROC) Race had always been run and raced like a professional sports all-star game where the selection of “all-stars” is always a little suspect and the format usually favors […]

1998 First Editions: HOT SEAT

The Hot Seat lives in Hot Wheels infamy due to its absurd concept and grotesque nature. Some collectors hate it, some collectors love it, some collectors just love to hate it. Whatever your idea is of it now, I actually remember this being quite a hot casting back in […]
