It's a "Desert Rally" for Car Culture Mix 4!

By Allen Voivod

Our Car Culture Premium Assortment for 2019 is about to do something it's never done before! Never before have these all-metal castings been created in honor of off-road racing, but now it's time to add that to the mix. Mix #4, in specific – the "Desert Rally" set of five.

Turns out that Real Riders wheels are a perfect fit here, too, and we're thrilled to debut a new tool – the Volkswagen "Baja Bug"! It features a removable roof rack, and a spare tire as well. All five castings feature decos from our designers' adrenaline-fueled imaginations and inspired by authentic racing liveries. They look so real, you'll want to take them out to the dunes immediately, but don't! Use your own imagination instead, and keep these clean and safe in your collection at home.

Just got this set a few days ago. The wagoneer is my fav of this line up. Don't see this one much. Excellent paint color for the body and the white roof really brings out the detail. Even inspired me to add the hw boulevard one from years back to my collection.

Since when is the Olds 442 been a desert racer? LOL! Heck I can take pretty much any HW car body, put it on a Pathbeater or other 4x4 chassis and have an "Desert Rally Racer! I've already done customs of several car castings back in the 90's. Not hard to do, just gotta match up the wheel wells to the chassis. Nice idea, and some of the reall off-road warriors could easily be in the series.

Just picked them up at Target and they look awesome in person! The Bug is hands down my favorite! Sure to be the hard one to find!!

And Ritzy4Runner, the Olds is based on a real car that was driven by the late actor James Garner

Don't collect HWs, only get some for my son. But this set is a must have for me personally. I've seen them in the store, and the pictures here can't really do them justice. Lots of nice, bright coloring, stickers, tampo and such to make each one of the 5 stand out on their own merit, let alone getting all 5 of them to own.

I lost my mind when I saw them, great way to show off the new truck tires & wheels while showing how tough the existing tires & wheels are. Baja bug jumped out at me, started there, so nice. Score, thank you.

Why don't you make more of these instead of limited quantities? All you are doing is feeding the scalpers and screwing those that just want to collect them. Now if I want to buy them, I have to spend $20 bucks (plus shipping and handling) on EBay to do so. Stop feeding the scalpers and take care of your REAL customers, I guarantee that you will sell more if you do.
