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 Golden Submarine

Built by Webb's Automotive Art in Burton, MI, the car is a modern interpretation of the 1917 Golden Submarine race car that was raced by driving legend Barney Oldfield. It features an all-aluminum body and Ford Racing Zetec ZX3-spec alcohol crate engine producing 175 horsepower. 

An odd choice for a Hot Wheels but I'd buy it as a mainline car.  Zamack would be nice or perhaps DeLorean gold.  Here it is from Larry's Garage premium line...
