This truck is called Bywayman. The metallic blue ones you found, both the Real Rider version and the basic wheel version, are from 1983.

A note about the date on the bottom of Hot Wheels and Matchbox cars. The date stamped on the base is not a production date. It is a copyright date for that casting. In most cases, the copyright date is one year before the casting's first release, but sometimes the copyright and original release year match up.

This one is called Super Scraper. They took the Bywayman body and put it on top of a slightly modified base with a plow on the front. This particular one you found is the first release from 1980. Later in the run it was called Power Plower.

Thanks for the link. That's a real interesting site. I know nothing about collecting or how to identify what I have. But it seems like I'm going Hot Wheels crazy everytime I go to the store. I've seen some of those on the treasure hunt page and now I want them.

If you're curious about a car, send me a PM or something and I can probably help you out. Between my childhood play days and my adult collecting days, I've been into Hot Wheels (and Matchbox) since the day I was born, so I have 37 years of experience with them.

Re: 73-87 hot wheels and die cast thread

I picked up a few more this weekend at a local tractor show/swap meet. A matchbox blazer 4x4 and a Nylint Trailblazer black/yellow stamped model for a whopping total of a dollar. I also got a couple of Big Surs again.

Sounds like some really good scores!

I just got myself a pair of the Hot Wheels Cop Rods Silverados.

Where did you get the cop rods from? EBAY? I've been looking at ordering the cop rods, milatary and fire silverado but I can't find them all together. I've also been looking for some Maisto G Ridez online but I'm coming up short or don't want to pay the inflated prices.

flashed, I need to get a few more of the yellow trucks and a gold one if I can find it.

Yeah, eBay. You likely won't find a set with the 3 together. The Cop Rods truck is the easy one, but they're still not cheap. I haven't seen a Fire Rods Silverado on eBay in a LONG time. I just saw a Military Rods Silverado on there for $152.

Re: 73-87 hot wheels and die cast thread

I went to the Kdays event with my little girl (4yrs old). We were the first in line for opening the boxes. We got there at 8am and the manager let her open a box then. She pulled out two green silverados, a batman car and two montes. They only let her have 5 at one time. It was really cool that she let her open the box early and let her pick them out. She also gave her a poster with a F100 modified truck. My daughter had a huge smile on her face. I went back later that day with my oldest daughter (7yrs old). She wanted to find the pink challenger. We walked away with several silverados , challengers, vettes and montes. It was a huge score for us. Thanks 1badgmc for the information on kdays. My kids and I are happy we got to particpate.

You're welcome. Glad you had fun. I ended up not going. Instead, I ordered 2 of the Kday cases online so I wouldn't have to deal with the crowds. I ended up with 4 each of the Kday exclusives, 2 each of the first-to-market and 2 of most everything else (including the green Cloak and Dagger Treasure Hunt). I was hoping for 2 of the purple '67 Chevelle, but only got 1 of those. Now I have some extra cars I can give to the kids for Christmas and whatnot and I spent less on the 2 cases than I would have spent driving to my nearest Kmart, buying cars, buying lunch, etc.

I was in the area of the Kmart today with work, so I dropped in hoping I might find a few more Silverados, but they were all gone. They did still have a few of the Kday Vette, Challenger and Lotus, but those aren't what I was after.

Re: 73-87 hot wheels and die cast thread

I wasn't really sure what to pick up that day. I really just wanted the silverado and I let her pick out the others. I had two of those cloak and daggers and datsuns in my hand but didn't realize what they were. Apparantly there where not a lot of people at the event after I left because when I returned to the store later that day all the boxes were almost full. Chevelles, montes, challengers...you name it...where everywhere.

Re: 73-87 hot wheels and die cast thread

All I was really aiming for were the Silverado, blue '69 Vette and pink Challenger exclusives plus the first-to-market Batmobile, Aston Martin and Monte Carlo SS and then I wanted the purple '67 Chevelle. The rest were just extra cars. Some of them are cool enough that I'll keep in my collection, but a lot I'll let the kids play with probably.

The bright red Datsun wagon was nothing special. If you would have found the deeper red (more of a metallic-like maroon) Datsun, then you would have found the Super Treasure Hunt everyone was after. From what I've read, not a whole lot of those showed up in cases. The Cloak and Dagger is an odd car, but it has a neat little trick up its sleeves.

Re: 73-87 hot wheels and die cast thread

I had that one in my hand but I didn't get it at first. By the time I returned it was gone. But that's very cool.

Re: 73-87 hot wheels and die cast thread

So I finally got my double of the Modern Classics Silverado in today so I could bust one open. I have to say that even as much as I don't really care for red all that much, this is my favorite of the bunch so far. I love that it has the factory look with the 2-tone paint, emblems on the fenders and even the bowtie in the grille.



And a group shot of all of them I have to date. That's 14 now. Only 4 more to complete the set and I have 1 of those 4 already coming.

Re: 73-87 hot wheels and die cast thread

It's my favorite too. It was the first square I found that looks similar to my GMC. Now I just have to make it look like the Hot wheel. LOL!

Re: 73-87 hot wheels and die cast thread

I'll be on the lookout for that one. I was able to go to a collecables shop this weekend while vacationing in Myrtle Beach. This guy had an amazing collection of hot wheels on pegs and redlines in glass cases. I was shocked to see that many in one place all for sale. He said he had about 200k packages for sale. I didn't get to see most of them. I actually got tired of looking through them. I did however get some more Bywayman trucks , a couple of tow trucks and some bone shaker models. I'll be going back to that place on my next trip to the beach.

How much did you get it for? I've seen a few of those going for pretty reasonable money lately.

I got it and a 55 wagon kmart green for less than 40 shipped. I missed out on a lot of 8 the night before of the walmart blue and black hot wheels racing versions. I'm still in the hunt for those.
