The latest diecast Neon

Post by LilSparkPlug » Sat Dec 04, 2010 10:29 pm

Saw this at Walmart last night so I picked up a couple, I also found one at my local Toys R Us. Figured I'd post it up for those of you who like to collect diecast Neons :). You don't see many of them.

It doesn't resemble a neon entirely, but...I suppose it's close enough. I apologize for the crappy cell phone shots, I'll get better ones with the DSLR tomorrow.

I picked up three of these because whenever I find a Hot Wheels I want (like the Pink AAR Cudas of late) they disappear shortly after I first see them. I literally picked some up last night and another up tonight so they're out there, in at LEAST those two stores. I also snagged a couple of yellow AAR Cudas :D and a Panther pink 71 Hemi Cuda of a different manufacturer.

Hot Wheels kinda did a mish mash of 1g and SRT on these. Kinda like a 2 door SRT look. Idk. Its close enough for me to want them.

I appreciate the thought. I always seem to learn about things just as everyone has moved on to something else. Ya' slow, ya' blow, ya' snooze, ya' lose. :banghead:

Also known as a Piece-o-Shit, this car has to be the worst car ever made. Although it may look cool and have a great name, this car has many defects. Everything from gaping holes in the back floor panel, to missing interior, from failing clutches, to having the clear coat applied before the paint, this car takes the cake as the worlds worst idea of a car.

wow, didn't know there were other collectors on here...

here's what I found and made. The maisto is a 1/24th sclae, not real accurate tho... wrong side pillars and an SXT wing!

Other was put out by Hot Wheels back in the Fast and Furious era... it's a little bigger than a regular Hot Wheels... I painted it to look 'similar' to me car...

...and not to sound too geeky (too late..)... but here is the original coloring..came out in 2004...believe it was modeled after a real drag car... so I think what they are portraying as "lights" on that new one (see the illistration on the card up top here)... are actually intake ports...
