My new Hot Wheels collection obsession is real and getting worse. The first batch of 10 Hot Wheels First Editions from eBay has just arrived, and they look amazing!
I decided to go shopping online for a fairly recent 2017 McLaren F1 GTR… one I had in my hand in Walmart last year to buy for my nephew, and I put it back on the shelf… stupid, i know! But instead of paying 94 cents for it then, I was looking at $5 now on eBay, most of it shipping charge. If you buy more, the per car charge goes down because it costs the same to ship 10 cars as it does 1 car. So i looked what else is reasonable out there that I want. I found my favorite ever race cars: Mercedes-Benz CLK GTR or CLK LM in later iterations and Porsche 911 GT1. I expanded the search to Mercedes-Benz C-class DTM. The Shelby Cobra. The Stingray Corvette and a classic Camaro with opening hood (just like the A.C. Cobra too) sweet!
So I spent like $30 for a bunch of cars, and have a few bids I’m winning now too… yikes!
Amazing having Hot Wheels that are 20 years apart side by side. The Chaparral is 2008 model with Hot Wheels 30th Anniversary logo on the back of the blue card. The Unimog race truck is my first 2019 model, next to all those First Editions Ferrari’ s. Just, simply amazing!
More to add on this topic soon.
