I am dreading putting in a new windshield.....
Yeah, I am flattered by it. Not sure who made the decals on ebay, but several folks that follow me on IG have asked me about making one, or have tagged me to those that have. To me, it's all good. I'll take the attention. As for skinnier wheels, yes, we do for both mainline and premium. The mainline version can be seen on this other casting I worked on- the '64 Nova gasser wagon (graphics team assigns the wheels) and the '55 typically gets skinner front wheels in the premium lines when they use the rubber tires.Flattering to have people rip off the design so quickly. Any idea who these people are doing this?
Always wondered why so many Hot Wheels gasser theme cars have big fat front tires/wheels? Doesn't Hot Wheels make any narrower wheels and tires for these?
That 55 looks cool until you enlarge it and see how horrible the door to body gaps are!Vall,
You're right about the Hot Wheels cars and the tires. There's a newer company in the 1/64 scale gasser now, M2. I think these cars put the Hot Wheels cars to shame. I haven't purchased any because I still like the 1/24 and 1/18 scale cars.
I put all my own glass in myself simply because the estimates for glass work, and the attitudes I got from various installers forced me to. I've rarely dealt with such a bunch of overpriced prima donnas in my life!after watching them, I might be willing to help someone now that I have an idea and saw how they worked it to get it to fit, but no way would I attempt it on my own.
It is us, Hot Wheels. I'm proud to say helped arrange it, too. So far we've produced the '64 Nova gasser wagon (3 colors) and we have a few premium items that will be out soon, if not already. I have plans for more, too.I think there is somebody, Hot Wheels?, making some of the southeast gasser cars is what I heard. Don't know if it's true or not. Car is coming along great!
