1987 Toyota Pickup

Check out these big wheels, Hot Wheels that is! They're both pretty cool, but of course, I'd definitely have to say that the Cool Classics one is cooler. Why? Well just check out its orange Spectrafrost paint along with its metal/metal body. Also the rims appear to by smaller so the tread looks ginormous, which oddly I like. But the mainline version is great too, I love the tan on it. Overall, they're both pretty sweet!

Personally Customized Rivited

Here is a Rivited I customized myself, it was originally a McDonald's Happy Meal toy back from 2005. All I did to it was that I removed the paint and polished it up a bit to give it a nice clean Zamac/metal finish. On top of that I swapped out the wheels for some plastic black Good Year ones. Also I accented it with some black paint and I detailed the headlights, taillights, grill, windshield wipers, and such. Overall I like my amateur customization job, it was fun! And it lights up too, cool!








The original is to the right for comparison.

Avant Garde

Here are two Avant Gardes! The lighter blue/gray one was from the 2013 Hot Wheels Mystery Models Series 2 while the red, white, and blue one is from the mainline. I definitely like the red, white, and blue one more, it just looks much more sharp. It's also representing France for the world cup, which is pretty cool for a mainline Hot Wheels car. Either way, it's an interesting casting, I like it!

Volkswagen Drag Bus Color Shifter

This casting is extremely popular, but too bad it's not the real deal though! But that's ok, this one changes colors so that makes up for it, almost. Anyways, if you're familiar with the regular VW Drag Bus casting, you know that it opens up to reveal it's big metal engine, but this VW Drag Bus color shifter doesn't do that. That's fine with me though, it's still a nice casting either way!
