This book is an identification and value guide to Hot Wheels products...a new toy idea when it was introduced in 1968, and the leading die-cast vehicle collectible more than a quarter century later. This second edition updates values and adds car information not found in the original. It is the only book authorized by Mattel, which means it has the most up-to-date information available anywhere. Every casting and variation known to the author is listed by the name of the original design in the year it was first sold. All subsequent paint, decoration, or model number changes are listed under the original name. Similar castings produced under another name are cross-referenced.

The simple key to becoming a Hot Wheels expert is knowing the name of the car and the year it was first produced. Every vehicle from 1968 through cars produced in 1996 and those announced for 1997 is pictured in this book. Most cars from the beginning through 1982 have the name on the bottom of the car, as do several post-1982 cars. That still leaves several hundred cars without any name identification. The year imprinted on the bottom of a car is often misleading. It is the copyright date rather than the year of production. This is at least one year off. .. and can be up to 20 years different. There are, however, many other clues to narrow down the picture comparison if the name and first year of production are not known. For example, the type of paint, country of origin, and, most importantly, wheel design, all help pinpoint the location of each car listed in this book.
