ALL are welcome to join and share photographs.
That is, anyone who customizes or restores
Hot Wheels Red-Line castings from those
Spectra-Flame years '68 '69 '70 '71 '72.
Those first five years … considered by
many to be Hot Wheels golden years.
Whether the casting is ‘original vintage’ from
those years, or happens to be one of their
re-tooled RLC versions from Mattel’s Red-
Line Club. Whether it is your own build,
or a fabulous build from someone else.
Have the best time you can, either way.
These can be as “mild” or as “wild” as you’ve
ever built (or have been dazzled by) ... allow
your creative imagination to get totally crazy.
(even careful restorations can be thought of
as “Kuztomz” ... they deserve praise too.)
So let the purist-collectors keep their Red-Lines
as true original un-changed “treasures” ... we
Kuztomz-Nutz can turn those little jewels
into tiny brilliant “gems”. Objet d’art .
Now the fun begins ...
