Mattel Hot Wheels 1975
Mattel launched the HotWheels brand in 1968 and the free wheeling 1:64 scale muscle cars became a household world by the early 1970s.
By 1975, the brand was doing what it does best, creating great looking cars and complicated racing playsets, a formula they still use today.
I recognize some old friends in there.
Flying Colors was the big push for '75.
The beauty of Hot Wheels are these detailed track environments they made for the cars, never had Thundershift 500 here (had to settle for boring orange race track) but I'm sure I circled it on more than one wish list.
Cut Off Canyon looks like it'd be fun for kids, even today.
