Wedges

In the Redline era, Hot Wheels was keen on the awesome wedge concepts of the late 60's/early 70's. Went to a local toy fair a week-ish ago (cars4marc went too!). Was a good fair as there was a ton of hot wheels. Some other brands too, but mostly hot wheels. of course there were many Redlines that made me excited. I decided to walk away with the yellow Alfa Romeo Carabo seen here.

Figured it was a good chance to do a shoot with 2 other wedge concepts from the time. The Ferrari 512 Berlinetta Speciale and the AMC AMX II. One tihng I love about Redlines is they always had something special going on. All 3 feature opening parts. The Alfa and Ferrari with opening doors/hatch and the AMC with its side-opening engine covers.

Anyone know the 4th and only other Redline-era wedge concept I’m missing?

Cheers!
