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.

I'd Like To See A Hot Wheels Chaparral 2J

The 2J had two snowmobile engines turning props that sucked the car to the ground.  The boxy back end with enclosed wheel wells kept the air in and created the suction footprint. 

I have a cool Tyco HO racer from childhood like the one in this pic..

Jim Hall created some of the most innovative Can-Am race cars of all time.  To read more about the man and the cars there's this cool book (click on picture to buy from Amazon):


If you'd rather race than read there's this cool Scalextric slot car:
