  2. 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.

  10. By Gary Barnum Customizers started lowering their cars and trucks as early as the late ’40s by using sandbags in their trunks, cutting their spring coils, etc. By the late ’50s, the practice was outlawed. But in 1959, a hydraulic system was developed so riders could raise or lower their cars and beat the law. Our RLC Exclusive 1969 Chevy® C-10 pays tribute to the lowrider—with a new Hot Wheels feature allowing you to raise or lower it! SOLD OUT With a twist of the switch on the C-10’s chassis, you can raise the car to “Street” mode, or lower it to “Slam’d” mode. You can run it “low and slow,” or you can run it raised. Take a little trip and see… Make sure you’re not too slow when this edition is offered at HWC on 1/21/20. Besides the new special feature, this release sports a Spectraflame root beer finish, cream side and rear panels, and Real Riders 5-spoke wheels.

    Fast & Furious Mix 5 Rewinds Time!

    By Allen Voivod Our last Fast & Furious Premium Assortment mix for 2019 is a bit of a high-concept idea. It started like this: What if we took some of the freewheeling cars you know from the global blockbuster franchise, looked at previous generations of those cars, and made them look like their modern-day movie counterparts? That's how you get "Fast Rewind," the fifth and final mix of the year! All-metal castings and Real Riders wheels come standard, as does the level of detail any car aficionado would deeply appreciate. As for the extras, look carefully at the blister cards. You'll see each of the five racing against the backdrop of a nighttime cityscape. But if you look at each one's reflection in the asphalt, you'll see the newer-generation version of the car that appears onscreen!

  24. By Gary Barnum With its wedge shape and scissor doors, it would become an exotic car icon after first appearing in the early 1970s.

  25. By Gary Barnum Did you miss the Red Line Club membership sale earlier this year? Well, we’ve got good news for you! We’re making more 2019 Red Line Club memberships available. So if you’ve been missing out on HWC and RLC editions, this is a good place to get in; membership includes the RLC Exclusive Custom Camaro®! The Membership Kit: For this year’s membership car, we’ve chosen a favorite of many collectors: the classic Custom Camaro® with opening hood and Neo-Classics Redline wheels. Specs: Features: Opening hood Body Color: Spectraflame black Deco: Thin red stripe across front Body Type: ZAMAC Wheels: Neo-Classics Redline wheels Base: Full-metal, chrome-plated chassis and engine Window Color: Clear Interior Color: Red w/ black-painted steering wheel Also included with your membership kit is a vintage-style 2019 RLC metal button featuring an image of the car. Plus you’ll receive a cool 2019 RLC membership patch, designed by our own Steve “HWC Van” Vandervate. The Membership: You can start to enjoy the membership benefits outlined below when you become a member of the 2019 Red Line Club. The membership is a great value at $24.99—the same price as when it began in 2002! RLC Priority Window: RLC members get an exclusive Priority Window on most of our online sales. Only RLC members can place orders during this Priority Window. The length of the Priority Window will be announced for each sale, but it will not be less than 24 hours. Our cars frequently don’t last past the Priority Window, so don’t miss the best chance you’ll have of getting your favorites. RLC Exclusive Cars: We’ll continue our innovative and exciting RLC sELECTIONs series this year. It means we’ll add another scorching hot release chosen with direct input from you — our RLC members! It’s your chance to help us with the creation process of an edition you want to see — and you help us choose color and wheels, too. Only club members get to vote for these, and we only offer them to club members when they become available. You may also notice other RLC Exclusive releases. Whenever this happens, you’ll definitely want to make sure your membership is up to date—if you’re not a member, you won’t be able to get these RLC Exclusive releases. RLC Rewards Program: As a Red Line Club member, you will earn one Rewards Point per dollar spent on most HWC items in the shop* — not just on HWC Series editions, as in previous years. You’ll also be able to earn Rewards Points on orders you place outside of the Priority Window! Some exceptions may apply, and will be noted on the individual product pages where that’s the case. Later in the year, you will be given Rewards Codes to redeem for special merchandise and other various items. We’ll have more Rewards details for you in a separate article later, but the thing to remember is that you can’t get any Rewards if you don’t join the club and order merchandise. Free Shipping: As an RLC member, you will receive free Standard Shipping on any order totaling $49 or more**! The more you purchase, the more you save. Also, certain HWC site content is only for RLC eyes – you don’t want to miss that kind of information. So if you missed your first chance at the 2019 RLC Membership and that Custom Camaro®, this is your chance to jump in the Club! *Rewards Points are earned on product purchase price after any coupons and discounts are applied, and exclude dollars spent on shipping, tax, and membership fees. Points are earned on specified items throughout the earning period for use on site during the Redemption Period late in 2019. **Valid after discounts and before shipping, handling, and/or taxes are added and applies automatically at checkout. Must select Standard Shipping to qualify. Not applicable to initial RLC membership purchase; will apply to purchases made thereafter. Excludes shipments to Alaska, Hawaii, Canada, Puerto Rico, international, P.O. Box, and APO/FPO addresses. Expires at 11:59 p.m. ET on 12/31/2019. Packaging and Quantities: Each membership vehicle is packaged on a blister card with a collectible button in a Kar Keepers clamshell case Availability: Available to HWC account holders beginning 5/21/19 at 9 a.m. PT (Signing up for HWC is quick and easy… click here to get started!)
