RLC Exclusive 2019 Convention Custom Volkswagen

By Gary Barnum

Designed by Ira Gilford, the Custom Volkswagen was one of the Original 16 Hot Wheels releases in 1968. After over 50 years, it seems fitting that HWC issue the casting as one of our traditional RLC Exclusive Hot Wheels Collectors Convention editions sporting a Spectraflame pink finish and Neo-Classics Redline wheels. We’ll make a few available here on 10/22/19.

The Volkswagen Beetle was obviously named after a bug. Little Latin lesson for you: the word “insect” is derived from the Latin word “insectum,” meaning notched or divided. Well, this casting features a slide-open sunroof, so… But then there’s the Latin word “insector” meaning “pursue” — which is exactly what we anticipate you’ll be doing for this piece if you miss the offer. So we thought we’d bug you about it now.

Been on a roll lately. Got the last 2 offerings for my boy, who's in school and better be learning since he can't get on here and do this for himself. Hope to score him 1 of these as an XMAS gift. He still doesn't know I "scored" the last 2 for him to open XMAS morning. Getting this 1 too would be icing on the cake, or, a star on top of his XMAS tree anyways, sure beats a lump of coal in the stocking. Adam (USN/disabled).

MATTEL ROCKS THE HOUSE! AND THEIR RLC EXCLUSIVE HOT WHEELS TOO!

I miss out on everyone! Not much chance here. Just buy them on e-bay. They got them plentiful. Don't see how one person can get so many!!
