It was the only hot wheels in that Walmart, the only one. They said a guy came in with a cart and bought every single car off the shelves. Missed this since it was on the shelf behind you as you look at the hot wheels. I was stoked to find it

There has to be a way to take a given Hot Wheel, strip the paint and then put on a custom historic livery...  I wonder if you could sell decal sets for such an application.

You guys are lucky. Last couple times I've checked out Target and Wal Mart, the shelves have been 100% wiped out.

There are a few YouTubes channels that do just that. Baremetal HW is a good place to start.

It's not Hot Wheels I just scored, but I finally had some time to work on the track:

While my Matchbox collection is strictly Porsche related, I couldn't leave this Alfa on the shelf...it just sits on my desk instead of with the others :)

My last decent find from a few weeks ago was a retro 90 VW Golf Country only found at Target.

I've been seeing ads on History Channel about "The Toys that Built America". Next Sunday's show is about Hot Wheels.

Walmart and Dollar General have both been completely out the last few weeks.

Saw these at Meijer while out running errands this morning.  Don't think I've seen the 2nd gen RX7 in this color before.

Bought this pack at the local used book/media store.

Seven bucks. I was only truly interested in the LM Porsche (dont know chassis number/code), but it's got some gift-worthy things in it.
