What a truely awesome idea Jim. A nice tribute to a toy that brought a lot of joy to, I'm sure, most of us.

I think that I was about 12 when these hit the market. If my mind serves me correctly they were about .69 cents. Cheaper, and a lot cooler, then Matchbox

My very first one was that Cougar! You've done a great job of replicating that memory!

Thanks!!!

I can only repeat what everyone else has said - these are fantastic!  The stance, the detail, the perfect colour choices - who wouldn't love to have these on their shelf?  My favourite so far is the T-Bird but I can't wait to see you 32 Vicky!

Cheers

Alan

Fantastic idea, 1/25 Hot Wheels! Man, I would have been biting my mums ankles for one of these back in the day, haha!

Just saw someone renewed this old post. I've built three more and redid the Custom Cougar to correct body modifications

How about some of the more unusual Hot Wheels........from my collection....Most would be tough to make in 1/25...maybe the Gremlin!
