Rare Models

Regular readers of this blog will probably remember that I grew up with Hot Wheels in my collection from the very first year they were released. As such, they hold a special place in my heart. I'd like to show off a few of the rarer models of Hot Wheels that are in my collection, spotlighting "Haulers." Mostly commercial vehicles, but one station wagon model that will haul a lot of people. Well, here they are:

This is a 1939 GMC Panel Truck, by Hot Wheels, in Rat Rod primer. I'm certain that many companies in the waning year of the '30's would have liked to have had a delivery vehicle like this!

Another Panel Truck, this one a 1962 Chevrolet. Featuring a down and dirty stance, this is one stylish hauler that will flat haul the mail!

In the Fabulous Fifties, Ford introduced this popular little truck called a Ranchero. This is the 1955 Ford Ranchero, in black and silver. This is not your Grandfather's old truck! Back in the day, I had two Rancheros from the early 1970's; great vehicles.

Hot Wheels has always been known for it's own custom creations. This is their popular Deora II in a Panel Van version. The flames make it look fast, even when it's not moving!

And lastly, one of my favorite body styles - the station wagon. This one is a 1980 Cadillac Seville Estate Wagon. Kind of makes you long for the country, doesn't it? Just so you could own one of these lumbering log wagons.

Well, I hope you have enjoyed this look at some of the rare vehicles in my collection. Don't be envious if you've not found any of these for your own collections, after all - it is the First of April!
