Another year has passed, and it’s time again for Roundbadge’s annual Hot Wheels Advent Calendar! For those who are new to our site, here’s the backstory. For everyone else...let’s see what’s new!

Welp...that table sure is new...

Actually, it’s not...it’s just the first time I’ve taken pics on it. It’s an experiment. We’ll see how this goes.

For Day 1, we have...

...the 2011 Heat Fleet series ‘65 Mustang!

This series would’ve been right around the time I started collecting again. I’m pretty sure I missed this model.

The opening hood is a fun feature. When I was a kid, my favorite cars were the ones that had either opening doors, hoods, or in the case of the Matchbox Renault (5) Le Car, hatch. This cast has a metal body and hood with a plastic base.

I had no idea that the color of the car would be so close to the color of the wood...I might have taken the pics on the traditional white surface. You can still see the metal flake in the paint though, so at least the details aren’t fully washed out.
