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 Camaro ZL1

Here's a great looking new casting marred by one thing:  That bump.

Hot Wheels 2012 First Edition Camaro ZL1

Yes, the one on the roof.  Sure the real car has one.  But the real car has side mirrors, too.  And satellite radio.  The toy car does not.

Memo to Hot Wheels designers:

If you're gonna lose the mirrors lose the bump.
