    Post Hot Wheels Makes a Datsun 510

    10-26-2008 11:49 PM

    Like, OMG. Back in July, we reported that a vintage import was on its way into the Hot Wheels lineup. Well here it is, the Datsun 510! And it looks fantastic, with a BRE-style front spoiler, fender flares, and perfect proportions.

    We’ve loved Hot Wheels since we were in diapers. They’re the best way to amass the car collection you’ve always wanted, but could never afford. The only problem was, there were way too few nostalgics represented. There are probably more Mustang castings than all Toyotas put together.



    Fortunately, this is changing, with the addition of the Datsun 240Z and Toyota AE86 Corolla in recent years. There’s even been a retro-inspired Honda F1 racer.

    As mentioned in July’s post, we pitched the idea of a Datsun 510 to some of the designers at Mattel during the SEMA show, and we’d like to think that our recommendation had something to do with this. But the truth is, there are tons of fans out there who have been clamoring for the 510 for a long time. In any case, we’re thrilled to see this icon immortalized in diecast metal, and that the translation to 1:64 scale is true to the original.

    You should see this on store shelves in a couple of months.
