This seems to be working well on the other board, thought it might be an idea to try here and maybe one or two other places if there might be interest.

The toll for a post is a pic of a random Hot Wheel...

I don't think Hot Wheels has ever done a more random car than this one:

Not really random, but this custom got me to think..."what the heck!"

I thought randomness was one of HWs specialty?
It is, which makes something as mundane as the Pontiac J2000 a real oddity in the line. At least there was an excuse for the Aries wagon (corporate insisted on a mommy-mobile in the line) but the J2000? To this day I wonder if Larry Wood owned one! ;)

Love those set Camaros Dan! Mine are still in the package...which makes the purple one very hard to photograph.

Not in the best of shape, but the hardest to find of the Crack Ups series

I have the same one; I researched it a little and found it was from Hot Wheels' earliest beginnings in the 1960's. This was my dad's when he was a kid and then when I got a hold of it at a young age I bent the axles to create a 4x4 version, needless to say I regret doing it every time I look at it.

There is a tool available for a modest cost that would straighten those axles...as long as you are careful and don't get too ambitious trying to do so. The tools are very easy to find on the 'bay and at TTP, or if you want PM me and I'll help point you to a listing. I bought one a short while back and its been great to have around.
