This is what my son and I did on my days off in 2010. Set up various Hot Wheels track layouts using vintage Redline era Track and cars from 60s - today. Through my interest and the all consuming Ebay, I could relive those days when I only thought of about Hot Wheels. It's always been a dream to acquire Redline era tracks and accessories. I stopped after Mrs threatened leaving me. I'm not one to stash away collector items in a display case....so let's go!

Sweet - I only have a few of the newer HWs on my desk. A 2009 Mustang and Corvette convertable, a 2008 Challenger, and a 2010 Camero. I have some others still in the package. I never saved them as a kid but they do have the "addiction" factor. :)

Hi, Dave! Glad you liked the video. It's so tempting to buy Hot Wheels when I'm near the Toy section, For only a $1, you can own and admire one for years... thats what made them so successful

I think the 1968 Redline "Green VW Beetle" from the video is my most valuable, at $30 - $50?

I buy mine at grocery stores for 99 cents. I've picked up a Porche 911, a Ferrari, a Lamborghini, and a Batmobile since I last posted. Much cheaper than buying the actual cars. :D

Sorry it took awhile to get back. The silver Porshe 911 (2008 or 2009?) was available in some local super market displays. Dosn't seem too rare here in DFW.
