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.

Carroll Shelby Dies at 89

Carroll Shelby, Builder of Cobra Sports Car, Dies at 89

Legend and automotive pioneer best known for his AC Cobra and hi-performance Mustangs starting with 1965's Shelby GT350. Not to mention the Ferrari-beating GT40 at LeMans.  

Carroll is well-represented in the Hot Wheels lineup and one of my all-time favorites is from the 1980's Real Riders series.
