Soon-to-be-repainted white and blue, this Hot Wheels is another shocker!
S C A L E M O D E L C A R S — My mouth hit the floor today when I spotted this $1.19 Hot Wheels 1962 Mustang I in the grocery store toy aisle today. Loyal readers will remember this post, where I posted a couple of photos of this car. Of course, the car should be white with blue stripes and interior, not yellow and black, but I've actually opened this package carefully and will repaint it to be correct. I'm really shocked that such a one-off, not even popular on the show circuit when it was new, was re-created for Hot Wheels. Not sure why they changed the color, there seems to be the correct "legalese" on the back so I don't think it was a copyright issue. While my net worth today can be counted in the low two figures, and that's being generous, lol, my priorities are clearly in the right place, buying yet another little toy car!
