I found a new batch of Mystery Models at my supermarket today. It seems Hot Wheels have decided to make it harder on us to find out what is inside. There is no longer a list of models on the back. Instead, you will need to buy one in order to get the little catalogue inside.

Mine turned out to be the Med Evil. Pretty boring and it’s going straight to the ‘Visiting Kids” pile.

The golden Corvette is now the “chase car”. I’m not sure that I will be hunting far and wide for that one... But is there still a way of finding out what is inside before you buy?


Of course! The number stamp is still on there, so if you find one stamped “18/03” you have the chase Corvette and can make a fortune on eBay.
