Welcome to HTBomb's Magical Hot Wheels. I played with Mattel Hot Wheels when I was a kid and began collecting them as an adult in 1996 shortly after leaving a 79 cent limited edition Treasure Hunt Passion on the pegs at KMart. That car is now worth $100! Several months later I found and bought three Treasure Hunts at Target. I was hooked.

I am interested in buying childhood collections of toy cars: Hot Wheels, Matchbox, Corgi, Husky, Dinky and Topper Johnny Lightning; Slot cars from Cox, Aurora and Tyco AF/X; Plastic model kits from AMT, Monogram, MPC. Please contact me via my website link below.

Hot Wheels Splittin Image and TwinMill

Two of my childhood Hot Wheels: the aptly named TwinMill and Splittin Image.  As kids we loved these original design cars.  Sure, hot rodded Custom Camaros and Mustangs were cool but these were amazing.  Somewhat ironically, most adult collectors favor the real cars to the fantasy vehicles and today's values reflect those preferences.
