Like many of you, Hot Wheels cars were a big part of my childhood. I believe those little redline mag wheels got me hooked on cars when I was 6 years old. The past few months I've decided to build tributes to the original "Sweet 16" Hot Wheels introduced in 1968. I have acquired, at a huge cost, one of all 16 cars and have started the build collection with first the Custom Cougar, Deora and Hot Heap. Finished the Custom T-Bird 7/17 I will be adding to this thread as I build them. I'm not building high detailed models, in fact I'm trying to replicate what these would be as bigger 1/25 scale versions, even with silver painted chassis and engine compartments with chrome engines if I can as I did with the Hot Heap, so be fair in judgement these are not built to be Best of Show models. The "Redline" wheels are Pegasus "T's". I used black and red sharpies to create the illusion of the Redline wheels. Hope you enjoy looking at these, as much as I'm having fun building them. 1967 Custom Cougar - Deora - Handmade surf-boards were fun to make from plastifoam board Hot Heap - Built this for a stock 1913 Model T kit from Russia I found on ebay, hard to find full-fendered T models. I heavily modified this to look like the Hot Wheel. I know, there is an MPC kit to build this from but hard to find and crazy money. 1967 T-Bird- Added the "custom hood bump"
