When my son was writing his letter to the big man a few weeks back it brought to mind thoughts we have about those "Holy Grail" cars that always seem out of reach for one reason or another. The ones that never seem to be on eBay, have a really high price, or just seem inaccessible for some reason.
I was thinking everyone probably has a list of them - interested to see other people's. Some may have a story behind them, others obvious ones that are just too pricey to justify the outlay - I'm gonna kick off with ten (in no order):
1) Red Line Club - Shelby Cobra S/C
2) The Hot Ones - Pontiac Fiero (white)
3) Redline Noodlehead
5) JL Black with Flames 68 Camaro
6) The Hot Ones Frontrunnin Fairmont
7) Red Line Club Custom Convoy (Blue)
8) Datsun 240Z (2006 FTE White)
9) Ford GTX-1 (2014 High Speed Wheels)
10) Human Torch Funny Car (1979)
The GTX is one that I first saw on the "Fastest Hot Wheels" YouTube channel - I was brand new to collecting and racing and had just Googled "which Hot Wheels cars are fastest" in order to start getting the fastest ones. Of their list, it's the last one I need.
Would be nice to see people post a list and update as they get their hands on the ones they want.
It may even be that other Redline Derby members have a spare one laying around in a package that they could help the person posting out with - who knows - but looking forward to seeing what would appear on your letter to Santa.
