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.

Today I Opened a Hot Wheels '49 Drag Merc

Very nice casting with see-thru hood scoop and fold-out wheelie bars.  Huge chrome wing looks great as does the dual carb engine visible through the scoop.  Now available in metallic maroon but I don't care for the translucent red windows/hood scoop or gold plating.  This metallic purple with flames paint scheme reminds me of the ever popular Purple Passion.
