I probably have some left buried in the storage closet somewhere... Hotwheels are badass.

Now that I took out all of my cars today, I probably have over 600. I miss those days of just sitting there racing Hotwheels cars on my invisible drag strip..

trip, you going to give us a link to where you are selling them? I might pick some up.

Sure. It will be Ebay(in a few weeks if I'm not too lazy). I picked up shipping envelopes today, and took a few tests shots. I didn't feel like busting out the camera and tripod so these are kinda crappy cell phone shots.

Here are the ones I (just now) took test shots of.

I pretty much just grabbed a random sampling without looking. Sucks, because when I was putting them back into their storage area I was like "ahh that one is so cool, I should have used that in my sample test".

In hindsight I would have never touched any of my toys or even taken them out of the packaging. tounge2.gif ...but that is no fun.

I'm about to do something that is going to alert Mattel's legal team again. Maybe I'll get lucky like I did before and I'll get a few gifts before they try and sue me. confused.gif

That car with the rubber tires was a Treasure Hunt I believe.

QUOTE (A Yahoo Answer)
Super-T-Hunts are far more superior in production than a standard Hot Wheels car or T-hunt ( Treasure hunt). Treasure Hunts are low production models that are usually packed 1-3 per case however I have one instance in 1995 found 8 in 1 case. Super Treasure hunts are packed at a lower percentage and have different identifying colors and/or wheels etc. These fetch usually 55% to 90%+ over Treasure Hunts depending on the car or variation.

The sad thing is these are getting tougher to find because employees get first crack at the cases, against store policy, but regardless they still do. This drives up prices.

To the untrained eye T-Hunts that they are called now state somewhere in green on the package "T-Hunt". It will say T-Hunt in the green area. In the past this was printed super small. Nowadays it's almost 40% or more of the right hand of the package. Usually lower corner on up.

^Cool Chevelle. I picked up a Hurst Oldsmobile Cutlass not too long ago. I'm gonna try to get a Datsun Bluebird, too.

I own some Hot Wheels cars but brand-new ones are now 2 times more expensive than they were ~8 years ago.
Also, I remember the times when Hot Wheels used to make cars and bikes. And now, I see aeroplanes, boats and trains. WTF?

I still see bikes in my store, I'll try and pick one up to show you. They are really old though, not from 2010 and on. Like 2004-2009 or something.

Regarding Kyosho and AUTOart cars again: Found this on a diecast website and though it looked cool. Thinking of buying that BMW 635csi off of eBay sometime this year. Definitely not my next car as it's a very rare model and costs $277! Too much.

Well, I meant that Hot Wheels is still making cars and bikes, plus aeroplanes, boats and trains. I own a bike from HW, it's red and its name is W-Oozie, some broad custom chopper.

Got to love those Autoart models, really nicely detailed minatures. I know a guy who also collects these 1:18 sized ones, he made a glass shelve system above his TV and displays them there. he has some 30-40 or something models.

sad.gif That sucks. I never brought my 1:18's outside. Probably never will unless it's overcast.

I just finished cataloging, photographing, and price checking all of my HotWheels. Yup - one step closer to finally selling off my collection.

This one is currently going for $45+ on eBay. That was a pleasant surprise for me to uncover.
