Collecting and Racing Hotwheels!

Post by Mnpctech.com »

This is what my son and I did on my days off in 2010. Set up various Hot Wheels track layouts using vintage Redline era Track and cars from 60s - today. Through my interest and the all consuming Ebay, I could relive those days when I only thought of about Hot Wheels. It's always been a dream to acquire Redline era tracks and accessories. I stopped after Mrs threatened leaving me. I'm not one to stash away collector items in a display case....so let's go!

I had quite a few hot wheels when I was a kid. Gave most (if not all) to my nephews for enjoyment.

i'd actually have to dig the cases out of their basement...he had a couple soft-plastic cases w/ clear flaps on the inside, as well as 1 or 2 hard cases with slots for each of the cars. i always remembered taking pretty good care of them as a kid, i'm actually really curious how well i ACTUALLY took care of them. :roll:
