Holiday Hot Rods: CADILLAC ESCALADE EXT

The Cadillac Escalade was all the rage in the early 2000s. Luxury, flare, & utility, the Escalade had it all…but it was one of the worst economic recessions in United States history that caused consumers to scale back and focus harder on the necessities versus the luxuries. In addition, gas prices […]

2009 New Models: LAMBORGHINI REVENTÓN

Toro! Toro! One of the most rare and expensive vehicles Lamborghini has ever produced, the Reventón was inspired by the world’s fastest airplanes. The Reventón name is taken from a bull best known for killing a famous Mexican bullfighter in 1943. The 1:1 Reventón had a hefty pricetag which was […]

Creature Cars 5-Pack: POWER PANEL

The Power Panel was designed by Phil Riehlman and is based off of the Dodge Power Wagon. Its an underrated casting believe it or not. Not being a very good track car, it has a tiny cult following of customizers and I believe the Hot Wheels Graphics Team […]

Another one of those former AcceleRacers castings, the Piledriver originated in the Metal Maniacs segment of that line. Driven by Deezel “Porkchop” Riggs in the cartoon, it is named after the wrestling move of the same name (according to the Hot Wheels Wiki). It has a V10 engine along […]

Track Aces 5-Pack: RD-05

Some Hot Wheels grab all the headlines. The hobby, more often than not, is about the next “new” thing when sometimes all we need is to go back through our own collections to have a further appreciation for the cars we already have. That was my mind-set when creating […]

Connect Cars / 50 States: COOL-ONE

With summer temperatures rising, we have cool treat for you today. It’s the Hot Wheels casting, Cool-One. This Cool-One was released as part of the Connect Cars—cars that came with an interlocking case that could stack, vertically & horizontally, to form a custom display case. Originally the connect cars were […]
