From WIKI… Hot rods are typically old, classic American cars with large engines modified for linear speed. The origin of the term “hot rod” is unclear. For example, some claim that the term “hot” refers to the vehicle being stolen. Other origins include replacing the engine’s camshaft or “rod” with a higher performance version.

The term has broadened to apply to other items that are modified for a particular purpose, such as “hot-rodded amplifier”

Hot Wheels is a brand of 1:64, 1:43, 1:18 and 1:50 scale die-cast toy cars introduced by American toy maker Mattel in 1968. It was the primary competitor of Matchbox until 1997, when Mattel bought Tyco Toys, then-owner of Matchbox.

Many automobile manufacturers have licensed Hot Wheels to make scale models of their cars, allowing the use of original design blueprints and detailing. Although Hot Wheels were originally intended for children and young adults, they have become popular with adult collectors, for whom limited edition models are now made available.

Hot Wheels were conceived to be more like “tricked out” cars, as compared to Matchbox cars which were more city or “real life” cars.[1] There were sixteen castings released in 1968, eleven of them designed by Harry Bentley Bradley.

The first one produced was a dark blue Custom Camaro. Bradley was from the car industry and had designed the body for the (full-sized) Dodge Deora concept car and the Custom Fleetside, (based on his own customized 1968 Chevrolet C-10 Fleetside).

In 1968, the first production line of #HotWheelsCars is known as The Original Sweet 16, which is the first of the Red Line Series, meaning the tires have a red pin stripe on their sides.
