Preface/Introduction

Hello! My name is Reece and I am a Hot Wheels collector. I have been collecting Hot Wheels cars all my life (literally) and have several thousand. I want to get at least one of each Hot Wheels casting made from 1968 to Present (preferably the first release, but not essential), and I think this page is a cool way for me to track my progress and for others to see too! In the future, this may also provide a 'Hot Wheels Identification Guide' of sorts once I photograph all these models, which will be as much of a task as it was to collect them in the first place! 

By saying that I want to collect one of each Hot Wheels casting, it opens up the question of what counts as a Hot Wheels casting, or more importantly, what I count as a Hot Wheels casting. Here is my answer to that. And if you have any questions or comments, feel free to post them.

Exclusions

This list excludes all non-1:64 Scale Hot Wheels castings and castings from series independent to the Hot Wheels 'Mainline' (some exceptions).

The following series have been excluded from this list:

  • Flip-Outs (1986)
