Hot Wheels – 1970 Toyota Celica (2013 City)

This is what Hot Wheels do well above it’s nemesis and sister brand Matchbox.

Unless you are into Tomica Limited Vintage, you will not really see this mode re-created in 1/64 scale or thereabouts.

So while Matchbox gets quality castintgs (sic) like Torque Titan and Vantom, HW get’s beauties like this one, which would not be out of place at all within any collection.

It looks at little aggressive – maybe that was the intention, but I would like to have seen this model with not so fierce wheels. I am sure it can be done with a those traditional ones that we see so often – I no not what the name is for them.

A good casting here – and shows the intent of the HW brand – shame the same sentiment is not given the Matchbox brand.
