Chevy to bring HOT WHEELS CAMARO to Wheels and Waves on Sunday, May 20th…

This month’s Wheels and Waves Car Show here in Malibu is leveling up with the official announcement that Chevrolet will be featuring its all-new 2018 50th anniversary Hot Wheels Camaro front and center.

Since the shutdown of the Trancas Cars and Coffee, car enthusiasts are looking for fun things to do with their rides, and this Sunday May 20… Wheels and Waves is sure to confirm that cool cars are alive and well. But we’re more than just a place to hang out and look at cars like most C&C’s.

I’m been a fan of the Camaro since the ’60s launch and the Hot Wheels brand bringing it to life as a spectra-flame diecast, so it’s a real treat for me to reveal this car in the flesh to you guys on a beautiful Sunday morning. I hope you’ll join us.

But let’s dig into this Camaro for a bit and see why it’s Hot Wheels worthy.

According to Chevrolet, “Since the debut of its custom Camaro in 1968, every generation — and nearly every variation of Camaro has been replicated in 1:64 scale by Hot Wheels. To celebrate 50 years of these die-cast dream cars, we’re returning the favor, taking this iconic toy off the orange track and onto the street with the Camaro Hot Wheels Edition. Ready to get behind the wheel of the real thing?”

The full-size Hot Wheels car comes in a coupe and convertible 2LT and SS. And the options are overwhelming, with everything from an Orange Crush paint scheme and 20-inch Satin Graphite machine-faced wheels to Hot Wheels badges, insane black-and-orange interior details and illuminated door sill plates.

So many options for a little less than $40,000. Nice.

Now, Wheels and Waves is a slightly different cars and coffee experience than most across the country. Along with free coffee, Hot Wheels and trading cards, the vehicles that participate are more “art cars” than anything else.

Where you could normally go to a car event to see Ferraris, Porsches and many other super cars, W&W is more about things that people have built. One-off customs, artistic expressions in custom builds, restorations and personal expressions.

These kinds of vehicles help inspire creativity among us and make for a very unique show. Sure, there might be a Ferrari, but it will be the No. 1 of 500 Italias or a $25 million SWB 250 GT.

And the celebs come out in droves as well to see these amazing rides. We’ve had everyone from Keanu Reeves to Dick Van Dyke, Tony Dow and Jonathan Banks. We even had R2-D2! Such a motley crew.

The point is, the boys and girls of General Motors like to have fun. And no other Camaro would really fit this game better than the 50th anniversary Hot Wheels edition.

Bring your children, bring your dogs and bring your best self with a smile ‘cause the only thing not allowed in my show is a frown. Of course, we’ll fix that right quick with these cars.

HOT ROD DAY at HOT WHEELS GARAGE! – FIREBALL MALIBU VLOG 619

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.

In 1968 the first production line of Hot Wheels Cars 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.

As it turned out, the Hot Wheels brand was a staggering success. The series “re-wrote the book” for small die-cast car models from 1968 onwards, forcing the competition at Matchbox and elsewhere to completely rethink their concepts, and to scamper to try to recover lost ground. Harry Bentley Bradley did not think that would be the case and had quit Mattel to go back to the car industry. When the company asked him back, he recommended a good friend, Ira Gilford. Gilford, who had just left Chrysler, quickly accepted the job of designing the next Hot Wheels models. Some of Hot Wheels’ greatest cars, such as the Twin Mill and Splittin’ Image, came from Ira Gilford’s drawing board.[2]

The success of the 1968 line was solidified and consolidated with the 1969 releases, with which Hot Wheels effectively established itself as the hottest brand of small toy car models in the USA. The Splittin’ Image, Torero, Turbofire, and Twin Mill were part of the “Show & Go” series and are the very first original in-house designs by Hot Wheels.

WHEELS AND WAVES means Free Coffee, Hot Wheels and awesome CARS…
