Hot Wheels Introduces Retro Entertainment Series

Smokey and the Bandit

Smokey and the Bandit

Sometimes, we get what we ask for. A few days ago on our Twitter account, we asked the question, “What was the tv based show for car crashes and highlights”? The top responses on Twitter were “Dukes of Hazzard” and the “A-Team”. (If you not following us on Twitter, click here.) Today, Hot Wheels announces their new Retro Collector Series. I didn’t know they followed us. I am sure this is just coincident. And Hot Wheels does not endorse, sponsor or is associated with our site in anyway. (But, Hot Wheels, if you are reading this, we do accept sponsors and/or advertising. )

The Retro Collectibles will contain renditions of the vehicles from some of our favorite films and television shows. In addition to reissuing old castings, there will be several new castings in the series.  For more information visit the Hot Wheels Collector Site.
