Default Best hot wheels?

Firstly, nobody cares about go bot matchbox cars. Now, what are some cars you wish you could afford, bit can luckily purchase them in hotwheels form?

someone needs to reacquaint themselves with what matchbox has been putting out...matchbox puts out more realistic cars than hot wheels

This is true. I've been buying a lot lately for my son, and his Matchbox cars have much more detail.

I had a Pink Olds 442 in the pack I sold to a friend of mine for $150. We are no longer friends . I never opened it because you guessed it...it was pink.

a pink olds from when...back when hot wheels came out the pink models were made but were not popular...as mostly a boys toy no boys wanted a pink car...so now they are worth more money

an unopened pink olds 442 from 1971 still in the original blister pack is worth $3800.00 today

My beef is even if they make them remotely realistic, they put oversized wheels or a ridiculous paintjob on them that kills the realistic look. I'd say that I have a 4:1 Matchbox:HW ratio as far as what I buy. I've really tried to throttle it back the past few years, though. I just don't display them or anything so I have a huge box of diecast cars that just sits in the closet.

i know what ya mean...but hot wheels is first and foremost a toy made for little kids...the adult collector is an after thought for the main line of models they make

remember the late 70s 80s and 90s models...those were the most unrealistic one the ever made

And now you know why we are not friends. The pack was abused since it sat in a box with other crap and cars. A friend gave it to me for one of my early 1977 or 1978 birthday when I was 7 or 8. She was given it and since my last name was Carr she thought I would like it, her and I are still friends. I was un-packing in Pensacola and a neighbor/friend offered me $150 for it 12 years ago. When Ebay came around I tested the water on all sorts of items then I thought about that car he said he sold for $175. Turns out he sold it for $1000ish. It was an early 70's 440 pink with big rear tires and spoiler w/a GTO Judge look. His wife accidentally ratted him out and he would not fess-up saying she did not know what she was talking about, but she did. I let it go but he turned out to be a douche nozzle who did not like that I nicely questioned him about it. Truthfully I was happy that he threw out the $150 offer as it would have sat in the box for years or been lost over time.

Yeah, those were all over the place. They still did the racecars pretty well, though.

I typically had matchboxes as a kid. For some reason, I've always been drawn to realism and order versus wild and chaotic.
