  1. By Gary Barnum It’s a benefit of being a Red Line Club member. Attend the HW Collectors Nationals and get your RLC Exclusive 2018 Collectors Nationals car and win at the RLC Raffle Party! The RLC Exclusive 2018 Collectors Nationals Car Always a favorite, the RLC Exclusive show car becomes one of the most sought-after collectible pieces each year. Your pink RLC Exclusive Collectors Nationals car will only be available to Red Line Club members—and this is your best chance to grab one! The car is scheduled to be available in the souvenir room on Friday. To get your car, visit the souvenir room on Friday and show your Red Line Club number on your Convention badge. The RLC Exclusive car will be packaged on a blister with a Kar Keepers case! It's the Datsun Bluebird 510 with opening hood, and it'll be priced at $20. You'll be given one free raffle ticket for the Friday night RLC Raffle Party when you buy your car before the Party. You can also purchase additional raffle tickets before the Party if you want more chances to win. [attachment=6407:name] [attachment=6408:name] [attachment=6409:name] [attachment=6410:name] [attachment=6411:name] [attachment=6412:name] [attachment=6413:name] The RLC Raffle Party What: Red Line Club Raffle Party When: Friday, Apr. 6, 2018 at approx. 8:30 p.m. Where: 18th Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals Hyatt Regency Dallas at Reunion – Dallas, TX The RLC Raffle Party begins once the Charity Auction is over, or at 8:30 p.m., whichever is later. Since it's a Red Line Club membership benefit, only 2018 Red Line Club members are allowed to enter. If you joined the Red Line Club for 2018, your RLC membership number should appear on your Convention badge, and you'll easily be admitted to the party. Frequently Asked Questions What is the 2018 RLC Exclusive Collectors Nationals car? It’s a Spectraflame pink Datsun Bluebird 510 with opening hood and Neo-Classics Redline wheels, packaged on a blister with a Kar Keepers case. How much does the RLC Exclusive Collectors Nationals car cost? How many can I buy? The cars are $20 each and are limited to one per person who must be an RLC member. As an RLC member, if I can’t attend the show, will there be another opportunity to purchase the RLC Exclusive Collectors Nationals car? Our plan is to offer some at HotWheelsCollectors.com at a later date for those who weren't able to make it to the show. What do I need to bring to the RLC Raffle Party? Your Collectors Nationals badge reflecting your Red Line Club membership number A Photo ID that matches the name on the Nationals badge Who can attend the RLC Raffle Party? Can I go to the party if I’m here for the Collectors Nationals? Only 2018 Red Line Club members who have a paid ticket to the 18th Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals will be admitted. You can't join the Red Line Club at the event. I have five RLC memberships. Can I bring four people to the Raffle Party? No. You can only use one of your memberships to get in regardless of how many memberships you have. My friend/spouse/parent/child has an RLC membership that I paid for, so the membership has my name on it. Can he/she get in? If they have an RLC membership in your name, you can both come in. Can I bring my kids to the Raffle Party? Yes. However, they won't receive any of the RLC benefits (even if you have a membership in their name). RLC members have to be 18 or older, so we can't honor a membership for a minor. Do I have to be present at the Raffle Party to win a raffle prize? Yes—but that's half the fun! The Raffle Party is a great opportunity to mingle with other RLC members, one of the special benefits of membership. And you could win some amazing prizes!
  2. By Allen Voivod In mining, “pay dirt” refers to earth that may contain the kind of ore, gems, and precious metals to make your life rich beyond your wildest dreams. For Hot Wheels, that dirt is the stuff of dune-stomping, jump-clearing childhood dreams come true! Our Walmart Auto Series hearkens back to those heady days with Off Road Trucks, the third mix in this 2019 series. Each of the six castings in this set features race-inspired decos, and card backs that show each of these beasts grabbing big air as they ride the desert’s idea of waves. Forget “four on the floor” – it’s “hang four” time now!

  22. Right from the beginning, Hot Wheels and Ford Mustang have gone together like speed and power. Like chrome and rubber. Like… well, cool and cars. To celebrate 50 years of Mustang, we asked you to show us your ponies! One of the most recognizable and in-demand automobiles of all time, the Ford Mustang was introduced to the public 50 years ago at the New York World’s Fair on April 17, 1964. The flagship car of its class, it launched the term “pony car” which later came to be applied to any car in that class. When the inaugural Hot Wheels series launched in 1968, the Custom Mustang was prominent. Mustangs have remained a mainstay of the Hot Wheels mainline ever since. And collectors love Mustangs! So here are a few shots that caught our eye. Enjoy! Redline era Custom Mustang w/Spectraflame antifreeze finish and collector button. – Jeanpaul Ferro “I followed my wife's 1998 GT Convertible on the Dearborn assembly line Dec. 22 1997.” – Stew Jones A rainbow of Mustangs, circled up. – Ralph Cady Two bosses. – Ed Lansford Blue flames. – Chris Matson A herd of ’92 Mustangs. – Richard Trujillo A blockade on a block. – Ryan Cunningham Now that just isn’t fair. Too cute! – James Dean Adams III How could we pass up a bitchin’ Larry Wood drawing? – Ralph Cady Pony in flight. – Robert Wasilchak And here’s to another 50! – Ian Weber
