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.

Had to go to my Profile, same Member Spectraflame, used the " See My activity" to open a post then I could manage to get to some forums.
otherwise the Home page tells me I don't have access.

 the only thing I have access to  there  are forums for the sites news blogs (editorials) like this one.

those can be linked to through the home page as well

are you saying you could get into the actual site forums?

Just some post I have, they might be all under news, RLC was one. Check yours. I don't post much. I could not see Customer Service to post there and I have posted there before. YMMV

just thought of something, even if the RLC  forums shut down as I thought may have been the case...  ...we should have access to the HWC  side of the site as HWC members. so there must be a problem with insite they are working on..TAZ

Its funny. Cause when I got to the shop I can still purchase things that are rlc only. So it must be a forum only issue

It would be cool if they put that Nissan garage set up for members. But told us when it would be for sale. Not just randomly to see it sold out.

I can't get into forums either. And I notice that when I click on my name to get to my page it says members spectraflame. Instead of the normal rlc-member. My account page says rlc member.  What's up with the members spectra flame. Never seen that. Glad the forum thing isn't just me

I am having the exact issue here as well since Yesterday. Hope they are able to fix it before the upcoming sales 😥

So I created a HWC account and with that I can access the HWC forums.  But with this (my RLC account) I can't access any of the forums.  Very strange RLC accounts can't even access the HWC portion of the forums.

If it was just a few of us having this problem I'd be more worried, but being so many of us I'm sure it's being worked on.

 would be nice if some one from the HWC was to do an article to tell us whats going on, and when we might expect the boards to return.. clicked the customer service link, and it is just for the shop.TAZ

I’ve got the same issue going on here with me. RLC member as well. I wonder what’s going on. I know we all would like to know what’s going on from the Hot Wheels team.
