Workhorses card.

Workhorses is a line of Hot Wheels that ran from 1980 to 1989. They were usually construction equipment vehicles or heavy trucks. Most of them had big construction tires and were painted yellow, but there were always exceptions to this rule. These castings are sometimes still reissued, with new colors, but not under the Workhorses nomenclature.
