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 DW-1 / Dan Wheldon Lionheart

Today I opened a Hot Wheels DW-1 / Dan Wheldon.

Super Treasure Hunt quality without the hysteria.  A fitting tribute to Indy racer Dan Wheldon.

I'm a fan of 80's Real Riders and this fits in nicely with all of those Indy cars.

Team Hot Wheels set a Guinness World Record at the X Games in Los Angeles last weekend for their feat on life-sized replicas modeled after a toy track set called Double Dare Snare.

The iconic orange loop will surely bring back childhood memories to many.
