Marketed as the "fastest metal cars in the world," Hot Wheels*r revolutionized the die-cast toy car market. Collectors throughout the world recognize the Hot Wheels*r brand. The models produced between 1968 and 1972 represent the vintage years for this line of toy vehicles. The bright "Spectraflame*r" paint colors and "redline" tires, unique to Hot Wheels vehicles, identify these models. These original models still drive the collecting hobby today.

The 221 wonderful color photographs provide a complete visual guide for collectors. The 118 unique castings produced during this four-year period are explained in detail and a complete variation and price guide is provided to expand knowledge and interest in collecting Hot Wheels.

Also included is coverage of the Gran Toros cars, launched soon after Mattel bought the Italian company Mebetoys. Introduced in 1970, the line was continued until 1973, though the name continued to 1980/81.

This book is a welcomed addition to Hot Wheels literature by one of the world's foremost experts in the field.
