Big things with little cars

LaLD Engine Week: Manfred's Monday

I have here the Red Baron from Hot Wheel’s 100% line. Many of you have a Hot Wheels Red Baron and it’s certainly a top 5 cast for me, but Hot Wheels finally got it accurate with this one.

This might be the most detailed Hot Wheels car that I know about, they definitely took their time with it.


For some in-depth history, here’s a post I made in the past about it (happened to be another car-week too!):

Basically Tom Daniels made a bad-ass Hot Rod modeled after Manfred von Richthofen’s Fokker Dr1 and Revell made a plastic model of it. Hot Wheels joined in the fun and you could even get a Hot Wheels in some of the kits. So cool!


Luckily for me, I don’t have to skirt the rules today and the straight-six on this car is shown openly and proudly with load of chrome.
