Hot Wheels just released a tie in with the Fast and Furious movies for a new line of die cast cars. Hot Wheels has been just killing it recently. All the "big boys" and lots of the girls have been headed to the local markets, Wal Marts, and Targets and buying armfuls of die-casts. I have to admit I have quiet a few too.
Last weekend at the Long Beach Swap Meet, I happened across a few cars from the line and purchased them. Craigs Supra, the Silver R34 (Blackbird), and an R35. I was looking for the green RB powered Mustang, but they said that one was hard to find. Long Beach Swap Meet was cool. Always fun to go and wander around. Look at all the things that people are selling. I have lived in Long Beach for about the last 10 years, and that was my first time there. Worth a look for sure. Next chance is July 14.
I thought that people didn't like the RB powered car much, but I seem to be having a hard time buying one on EBAY. I didn't come up with the concept, I just made it work in real life.
The real car on set with Autoblog Canada's Dave Pankew at the helm in around 2006. Sorry the Treo didn't take awesome video.
