Big things with little cars
Big things with little cars

I’ve had this one for awhile, and figured it was time to set it free. This is Hot Wheels’ ‘69 VW Variant in 1/55ish scale, from the California Local VW collection/Off The Lot series. I have the Type 3 fastback and black Ghia as well, but there are others yet to find. The only thing that bugs me (no pun intended) about these is that the wheelbase is slightly off, too short for the wheelwell locations. The others have this issue as well. Otherwise, it’s a fun and well finished little piece. Orange Squarebacks have a special place in my heart, as I came home from the hospital as a newborn in the back of an orange ‘73. Enjoy!
