Hot Wheels® Vintage Racing™ At The Starting Line!

Racers From The ’60s And ’70s Appearing Now

HWC Gary 02-23-11

It was an exciting time when Trans Am, Stock Car and Pro Stock racing were gaining appeal with a wider audience… Legends such as Parnelli Jones and Richard Petty were in their prime. Our new Hot Wheels® Vintage Racing™ series recreates the cars of that bygone era, including five brand-new castings!

Each of the 1:64 scale representations in the 30-car series will feature die-cast body and chassis. All of the cars will feature Real Riders® wheels, with two new rim styles and a new drag slick tire set to debut in the line. And the authentic deco of each car pays homage to one of the greats!
