Jordan takes the “grandfather’s car” thing to the next level: HOT WHEELS!

That’s right, it’s the Mattel (R) Hot Wheels 1999 edition (and 2002 Re-Issue) of the 1936 Cord 810 5-Passenger Sedan. (Exactly the car I showed in my exhibit.) The same toy and casting marketed twice in two different Mattel (R) Hot Wheels series. The earlier edition ties in with the ACD museum; the other one is part of a historical series.

I had these on my mantelpiece and hadn’t looked at them in a while. I have to say: they’re pretty good! Especially for 1:64 scale models. Amazing that they can mass-produce this shape at such a tiny scale, so accurately.

Anyway, Yay! Hot Wheels Cords!
