Get the Power of American Steel at Walmart!

By Gary Barnum

 

 

The first mass-produced cars in America began to roll out of Detroit right about the turn of the century (1900, not 2000). But it appears the automobile production really accelerated in the mid-century with heavy-duty steel vehicles. Today, estimates put the number of cars produced in Michigan close to two million! We pay homage to some of the many classics with our American Steel series at Walmart.

 

These editions really highlight some of the muscle behind American Steel, and it seems like everyone has a favorite or, most likely, favorites. If you’re strong enough, you can pull these favorites out of your local Walmart beginning in December.

A premium set would have gotten me more excited. Still they're good looking cars and the card art is great.

Nice set. I found them today. I’m a little disappointed there’s no Mopar though... I thought Mopar had a place in the American Steel genre.

No Corvette?  Eventhough it's not "steel" it should be represented in this series more so than a '72 Torino. Set seems pretty Ford heavy with no Mopars at all.

I have to say this is a beautiful set, but I wish it wasn't 2.49 per car.
