So all of the Hot Wheels posts over the recent months made me bust out my Hot Wheels to share. Now to be fair, the last ones truly collected until this last month were in 2003. Also most have some...wear... because what kid doesn't abuse his hot wheels doing awesome stunts? Oh and I apologize for not taking more time with the photos to make sure all of them were clear.
Anyways, here we go:
Ze Germans: Audi Avus, Mercedes E-Class (DTM?), Mercedes 540 K, couple of S-Classes, BMW Z3, Porsche 959, Porsche 911 ducktail, Porsche 911 GT1, Porsche 930.
Racecars and some others: Jaguar D-Type, Ferrari 156, some drag car, Panoz GTR-1, Some ferrari, Cadillac LMP car, Firebird Funny car, some LeMans racer..., and four cars part of a deck-of-cards series.
The exotics: Chapparral, Ferrari Testarossa, Ferrari 360, Ferrari 250, 2 Ferrari F40s, 2 Lamborghini Countach LP500s', 3 Jaguar XJ220's
American sports-cars: Boss 302, '65 Mustang, Shelby Cobra (my first hot wheels, hence it looking sad), 3 Dodge Viper RT'10's, C5 Corvette, Corvette Stingray 3 Concept, C4 corvette, C3 Corvette, C1 Corvette
McDonald's Cars: Not going to spend time on this one... at least there is a C2 vette in there.
