I was messing around with potential cars for the upcoming 'Sedan Shootout' race, and I realized that I was working on one of my favorite castings...again...the Hot Wheels '57 Chevy! This car, I believe, originally came out in 1976...I was 9...and I thought it was AWESOME! It was my fastest car for a while, and I've had a bunch of them through the years...both fast and slow...but, it still remains one of my favorite castings!
Now, there are lots of races in the near future, but, I thought that this might be a fun one to do sometime in 2015...let's have a race where everyone enters there own, personal favorites! I'm not asking you to hack up your favorite car...but, thanks to eBay, there are lots of them out there.
My personal favorites, other than the 57, are Roger Dodger (I had a purple one with flames), Second Wind (I was a huge Speed Racer fan, and, let's face it, Second Wind is basically the Mach 5) and the Larry's Towing Wrecker (because, even as a kid, I loved Chevy pick-ups!)
Maybe run the race as a Middle weight race...57 grams...fte wheels, dry lube, standard sizes...and the theme is just that the cars you enter were you favorites when you were a kid!
I'm just throwing ideas around...let me know what you think!
