Gotcha, I’m glad they resonate with others as well. The two off road tire models are eBay finds, but the smaller wheel sets I found at an antique store for around a dollar each. I remember I had a red Subaru BRAT, a silver Chevy Citation 3 door, and some weird looking green jeep thing that I’m going to try to find as…
The imagination we had as kids! I still have a Matchbox Rover Sterling that got left out in the yard and ran over by a 1:1 ‘79 Monte Carlo and I still have it in it’s mashed state today!
Thanks! I’m now thoroughly addicted to recreating people’s cars in smaller scale!
Sounds like a good day! Diecast were had, (it sounds like) reasonable prices were paid, and the jokers who thought they had a firm grip on the reigns ended up with egg on their face!
Dude! You’re on Kinja! How awesome is that?!? I’m sincerely glad you like it!
I believe they are independent of each other but not sure, didn’t have time to try 😢
Mid to late 2000s I wanna say, I’ve been obsessed with the AE86 ever since an dam on the hunt for a 1:1!
Is this a new HW casting?
Thanks! I can’t wait to see the pics he takes with the 1:1 and 1:24 together, that color is truly spectacular
He told me he built a shelf just for it and I haven’t even mailed it yet ;-) It was a joy to be able to make this for him.
Love the manga and the anime, you put this all together so well, brings back great memories!
So jealous, what an awesome display!
Looking back and reading your comment about the 900SS/CR, that wouldn’t be too hard to make if I found a second 900SS FE...
Looking back, the HSC is still the better design compared to the new production NSX!
Hey wanted to reach out and see if you ever found the blue Xterra, because I grabbed an extra recently in case you hadn’t!
Loved the Veilside cars in F&F, and got a up close and personal look at several in Forza Motorsport (1) on the original Xbox in 2005!
Love this casting! I didn’t know it was based on a real car, I only knew it was rare in that it has a designer’s name on the base, “Designed by Tom Meade” or something to that effect, maybe one of the only such cars in Hot Wheels lore.
Send me an address to (my username) at gmail and I’ll send it out! I already have this casting in the same color with the earlier wheels!
Welcome back sir! Are you still looking for this Jetta?
Very thoughtful post. I’m glad you’re keeping his memory alive. Post pics of the builds, 1:64 as well as 1:1!
