This Hot Wheels station wagon was based upon the 1957 Buick Century Caballero Estate Wagon and was first released as part of the Ultra Hots series, in 2007. Regular readers of this blog will know of my lifelong fondness for station wagons, so it was a natural that I do a full spread on this excellent piece.
It features classic lines - my Dad had a 1956 Buick when I was little and the design from 1956 to 1957 was not changed much. They were big and roomy vehicles.
This model has an opening hood and a metal base, just like Hot Wheels of old.
It even sports real rider tires!
From the front, that classic Buick grill really stands out.
All in all, it's a piece that when I first saw it, just had to be added to my collection of 1:64 scale station wagons.
