Most likely you and your kid – boy or girl – shared a connection at the respective ages, collecting Hot Wheels, Matchbox and other small sized cars that were not only toys but also objects of desire.
Now that you’re all grown up with worries and stuff you can’t be a kid anymore… hey, who are we kidding here. People, stop worrying so much and enjoy life – just like Forrest Gump says when he’s talking about that mysteriously flavored box of chocolate. Now, there are moments when fantasies do come true – for example Chevrolet’s new Camaro Hot Wheels Edition. It’s an appearance package that acts as a tie in for the Camaro range with the Hot Wheel’s 50th anniversary. And in case you didn’t know, the 1968 Hot Wheels Custom Camaro was the first Hot Wheels vehicle ever. Now as an homage to that moment, the two companies are bestowing the Hot Wheels treatment to the 2LT and 2SS coupe and convertible models, along with the 2018 COPO Camaro.
The real-life sized Hot Wheels Edition Camaros have an exclusive “Crush” exterior color and stripes to mimic the well-known orange Hot Wheels tracks. There are also unique 20-inch wheels, 50th Anniversary Hot Wheels badges, orange brake calipers, “Satin Graphite” trim, darkened tail lamps, and black Chevrolet bowties. The interior is also host to orange leather inserts, accent stitching, and seat belts – along with embossed front headrests, illuminated doorsill plates, and a 50th Anniversary Hot Wheels badge on the steering wheel, and all of this can be had for an additional $4,995.
