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 Acura NSX

Mattel brings us the 1990 Acura NSX in their HW Workshop 2015 series. Introduced in 1990 by the Honda Motor Company the NSX brought the world of exotic sports cars to otherwise staid Acura lineup. Acura was known for its well-made but conservative TLs and ILs.

The Hot Wheels is quite accurate and very well done. Acura tampo on the hood and tailights/backup lights along with unexpected injection molded plastic exhaust pipes make for a fine reproduction. The windows and roof are cleverly one-piece emulating the real car's black painted roof.

The 1:1 car is below.

For 2016 Honda reintroduces the NSX and she's a beauty.

There is also a Hot Wheels version of this exciting car.
