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.

The Joy of Buying Collections

I recently purchased a childhood collection.

Although many people buy collections from other collectors I prefer buying from their original owners.  Knowing that these cars are all original and may have been sealed in their carrying cases for 30 plus years is very appealing.

As a fellow collector shared with me, "Having the privilege of being the second owner of a collection of Redlines is really exciting!"  Yes, indeed.

If you have a collection for sale please contact me htbomb@aol.com.

If you want to read up on the early years of Hot Wheels I suggest Hot Wheels Classic Redline Era as a starting point.
