    Spotted these during my eventful weekly supermarket trip. I don't get to go out much thanks to my itchy fingers. I spotted the FAF edition Hot Wheels, and I had to have them. So here goes -

    Yessir! The 1970 Dodge Charger Road and Track driven in the last drag race of the movie. And the Skyline GTR R34 made immortal by Paul Walker. I can not get this car out of my head. So much so, that when I first started hunting for a car here, I was looking for Skylines :D

    I remember having over 300 Hot Wheels as a kid. And everytime I would take them out to play, my playtime would be over by the time I would arrange them in a neat parking. Sigh.

    Anyhow, some more shots of the cars -

    The finish is slightly crude in my opinion, but I'm holding a Hot Wheels car after maybe 5 years.

    The Chrome engine detail is good for the car size.

    The Charger is better finished over all.

    Damn. They look good together.

    Adios. I need a 10 second car now :D

    Anyone here owned/played with Hot Wheels? Or still does? Do share your experiences.

    I loved Hot Wheels as a kid, had a number of those tracks and something north of a 100 cars, gave them away to my younger cousins. As I grew older, I stopped playing analog and moved to digital, well now even that I don't find time for :(
