"In 1968 Mattel introduced the very first Hot Wheels vehicle. Since then millions of kids have grown up with the Hot Wheels family of cars and trucks. Now it’s our turn to say ‘thank you’ for 20 years of support! Hot Wheels is proud to present our 20th anniversary “Special Collector’s Edition” car, a sleek chrome-plated vehicle embossed with a striking 20th 20th anniversary logo! There are six different chrome-plated cars representing most of the Hot Wheels segments." (from the back of the 20th Anniversary 3 pack)

The striking 20th anniversary logo

For the 20th anniversary Mattel launches twelve 20th Anniversary 3 packs (thirteen if you count the variant of the pack number 6).

In the 20th anniversary 3 packs you can find 23 cars from the past mainlines: 1 from 1982, 1 from 1983, 3 from 1984, 3 from 1985, 7 from 1986 and 7 from 1987; along with these ones there are two "exclusives": Thunderstreak with a color scheme that will appear in the 1989 mainline and Turbo Streak with the 20th anniversary tampo, that could be found in a rare variant of the pack 6 and in the 20th anniversary gift pack. The main course of these 20th anniversary 3 packs is the free chrome and gold vehicles embossed with a striking 20th anniversary logo.

Since there is no way to differ the 12 packs a number was chosen following the order on the backcard. The first 6 seem to be the rarest packs, namely the gold ones along the chrome ones that are hard to find; the remaining 6 packs seem to be more common.
