The COMPLETE Guide to Redline Hot Wheels

The goal of these pages is to deconstruct the pivotal and ground-breaking first 5 years of Mattel Hot Wheels, the spectraflame years, for collectors. We do that by breaking down the cars themselves to make it easier to compare the various pieces they were comprised of, and with other castings manufactured at the time. You'll find exterior colors, interior colors, buttons, stickers and decals listed in a 'show me' minimalist text format.

New major site reorganization under way! Same great, ad-free experience, but with a new and improved user experience (we hope!). It will take a few weeks, but it's on the way.

All new additions are being done on the unpublished site, recent additions: Hot Wheels Club, Black Base Indy Cars, and a new vehicle index (by name and number) have been added. 

Conversion of the old site COMPLETE!  Doing some proof-reading... 

Thanks for your patience while we work to improve the site!
