Car and Driver: Retro Done Right: Mattel Reissues Selection of 1980s Hot Wheels Sets


Recommended Posts

-If you’re reading this website, there’s a very decent chance you grew up playing with Hot Wheels toys. For many—ourselves included—car enthusiasm started at an early age with these 1:64-scale die-cast beauties and their physics-defying plastic tracks. That’s why these reissue Hot Wheels toys fill us with the best kind of nostalgia.




Not the sort of smarmy, pandering “wasn’t this particular 10 years so great” faux nostalgia that’s all too common on the internet, but the kind that genuinely warms your heart. Indeed, Mattel has re-released a handful of individual die-cast cars and four sets including the Retro Hauler, the Dash & Crash track set, the 4-lane Elimination racetrack set, and the Sto & Go playset.HotWheels80s3


Each comes in excellent retro packaging, complete with the old-school red-and-white logo. The cars, which have a suggested retail price of $2.19 each, and the sets, which all are under $30, are available to purchase now.


These are the perfect toys for both you and your kids. Even if you don’t have kids, you probably still want these. As Hot Wheels fans, we know we do.
