It's time to open some cars!

As noted on the card, this is a 2004 First Edition of a 1968 Nova. I really appreciate the detail that Hotwheels generally puts into a car when they first release a new casting. In this case they went with a fairly simple paint scheme and captured some really nice details.

Hotwheels has done a lot of Batmobile models in the past few years. This is the 1966 TV Series car which they first did in 2007. They kept the pinstriping to a minimum, using just enough to evoke that original car, but not going overboard.

I really love the "classics" line. I have at least one of each car from Series 1-4 and will be opening some of the duplicates (having shown a few already). They really went into detail on this one with the right Corvette logo on the nose and 327 markings on the hood and fenders.

I'm going to finish today with a new model that's just fun. I picked up one of these with a trashed card just so I could release it and roll it around on my desk. The bubble canopy is really cool, and the clear wheels at least evoke the spirit of the Jetson's flying car.
