From the 'HW Flames' series, the very cool, '72 Chevy LUV truck. The eye catching orange flames look fantastic on the metallic blue with a fully chromed interior and truck bed, the truck looks modern but has a retro feel too it. The wide five spoke wheels also work well. The addition of a sun roof is cool and allows you to fully see inside the cab.

From the 'muscle mania' series, we have one of our most favourite muscle cars. The 1970 Plymouth Barracuda, here it is finished in 'fire engine' red with cool retro stripes. There is good detail on this models exterior and interior. The colour looks great and the gold rims wheels compliment the car perfectly. The small and subtle 'Hot Wheel' logo on the trunk is nice finishing touch.

Rocket Box from the 'Art Cars' series. This Hot wheel is a tooned out VW with a graffiti and urban art style decal. We thought we would grow to like the wheels but I feel yellow rims would work better. The blue and yellow paint on the car look good though. The rear of the model is a little plain with just a large VW badge, and needs something more. Overall a cute little car that fits into the 'art car' series quite well. Do you like it?

From the 'HW Digital Circuit' series. Without doubt, this version is the best colour combination for this model. The car looks like an authentic 'team' car and has fantastic decals. The bikes on the roof complete the authentic look and the wheels are outstanding. The model looks modern and almost like a prototype for a future road car. Looks great and is must have for your collection.
We have resisted putting any of the 'HW Moto' series models on the blog, but we could not hold off any longer once we had this model in our hands. The Honda Monkey is fun Hot Wheel thats looks as it should. Cool, fun and 'tooned' nicely to replicate the real thing. The colour and decals are a perfect match. More from this series to come.

From the 'Speed Graphic's' series, this superb model has been finished in a plain white with subtle green decals and corporate logo's. The car is faithfully detailed and the graphic's are understated and very cool. The wheels are outstanding also and compliment the overall look of the car.

1963 Chevy II. A very simple but very cool car. Finished in a brilliant blue with subtle white stripes and decals, the car has a confident and stylish look. The low stance adds to it look and we would love to see this in 'real' life. A must have addition to any collection.

The iconic Chevelle SS finished in a deep midnight blue with yellow and blue flame decals. The outstanding blue interior looks good and compliments the other colour used on the car. The simple and classic lines of the Chevelle are perfectly replicated by Hot Wheels and they have sat the model on their chunky five spoke wheels, looks great.
