Re: 73-87 hot wheels and die cast thread

I've been looking for that blue "Hot Ones" version, but I don't think I'm going to find it. I'll probably have to resort to eBay.

Re: 73-87 hot wheels and die cast thread

I actually bought two.(just in case) idk what happened to the other so a wise investment i guess. but it seemed like my wal mart was overstocked on these when they had them. i doubt i find it but if i do i can let you know.

That one and The Hot Ones Custom '77 Dodge Van are 2 that I've been looking for, but probably won't be finding. I like to get 2 of each myself that way I can open one and park it on my shelf behind my desk.

Re: 73-87 hot wheels and die cast thread

I think of these Hot Wheels as 73-80s...Ramblin' Wrecker and Backwoods Bomb:

Re: 73-87 hot wheels and die cast thread

My Larry's Towing Ramblin' Wrecker was always one of my favorites as a kid. Did you know that when that one was originally issued, it had the actual home phone number of Larry Wood (the designer) on the side. He was getting lots of phone calls before they reissued it. If you can ever find one of those with the phone number, it's worth some big money.

Re: 73-87 hot wheels and die cast thread

I always liked these,too. Yes,I did know about the ones with Larry Wood's #. I'm holding out for an excellent to mint. I just got a mint yellow one I'm real happy about. Those were in a set,so no package. I wanted to bid that packaged original shown. I don't have PayPal (ever) and for some unsolvable reason can't get it under my current Ebay name and e-mail. So,I always send a message asking if a postal money order would be accepted before I bid and how this is how all my transactions have been carried out with great success (100%). Out of 50 or more purchases I've had 3 say no and that guy (DH) was one of them. HWC reissued that same white truck commemorating Larry's 40th ann. and a Charcoal one as a HWC issue
The Backwoods Bomb came in Green w/dragon tampo. Then,there's a blue version (fairly rare) with a stripe tampo,which is the same tampo as on the '12 re-issue in the same Green as the one w/dragon. I got the ok to bid on that blue one in the package,went to check it out and it was already up to $68 or so,and I didn't bid. That thing ended up at $169!!

Re: 73-87 hot wheels and die cast thread

looks like no one else found the monster truck yet. I dont think the black and blue hotwheels racing ones have been posted yet either? These are from my boys collection.

Re: 73-87 hot wheels and die cast thread

I've seen the Monster Jam trucks and I have both of the Hot Wheels Racing trucks. I still need to get my hands on that blue Hot Ones truck there.

I picked up a few more, need to get them on the site now too.

Re: 73-87 hot wheels and die cast thread

The purple with the green flames is the older variation. The design of the graphics is the same on the 2 trucks, just different colors.

I finally got my hands on two of the orange trucks the other day so I could bust one open.

Re: 73-87 hot wheels and die cast thread

The yellow one showed up in a Sneak Peeks in a HW Collector's Club e-mail I got, so it should be regular line.

This one, on the other hand, is a Super Treasure Hunt.

Re: 73-87 hot wheels and die cast thread

I see my chances of actually finding the gold one hanging on the pegs somewhere being somewhere between slim and none, so if I want it, I'll likely have to resort to eBay.

Re: 73-87 hot wheels and die cast thread

So, I finally found me a yellow one today. I was digging through one of Wal-Mart's *%^*^&%!!! dump bins today. I knew it was the right assortment for the yellow Silverado, but I was about to give up and walk away when I saw a yellow tailgate peeking up at me from deep in the bin. I pulled it out and kept digging, but never found anything else.

Also, earlier this week I stumbled across this HW Road Trippin' Silverado. I don't know how I missed that it even existed. Unfortunately, I only found one of it as well, so I'll be looking so I can crack one open.

one of the local Walmart stores set up a dump bin yesterday. It had several of the yellow. So, check for new dump bins. This one was set up at the front of the store, right next to the "20 or less items" checkout.
