Is it this one?


Hot Wheels has sold more Camaros than Chevrolet since the two legends of four-wheel fun debuted nearly simultaneously: the car in 1967 and the toy in ’68.


Chevy hopes to repay the favor Monday, when it introduces the first Hot Wheels-badged version of a production car, a gleaming limited edition of the 2013 Camaro.


Hot Wheels’ chief designer Felix Holst took the first of the cars out for hot laps and sat down with David Ross, Chevy design chief for performance and specialty cars.


The grown men looked like kids with new toys when they sat down at GM’s Milford proving grounds to talk about how you turn a real car into a Hot Wheel, and vice versa. The real car waited in the parking lot; the first of the toys rolled back and forth on the table between them.


The project began late in 2010, when Chevy decided it wanted to display a Hot Wheels concept car at the enthusiast-themed 2011 SEMA auto show in Las Vegas.


Holst’s team sketched five concepts and turned them over to Ross’ GM designers. Working with designers from another company was unprecedented for both companies.


“We filled walls up with sketches,” Ross said. “I didn’t even have to ask people to work on it. What designer wouldn’t jump at the chance to build a production car that looks like a Hot Wheel?”


The car was a hit at SEMA last November. “I couldn’t even get close to it to take a photo,” Ross said. “Within the first couple of hours, we knew it was a home run. On the plane home from Vegas, people were working on the production model. How could we get it to production?”


Approval to design a production car came quickly. The goal was to unveil it at the 2012 SEMA show this week in Las Vegas.


“The time scale was incredible,” Holst said. GM proposed building a production car based on Hot Wheels design in the same amount of time it takes some of the Toy cars to go from first sketch to production.


Capturing Hot Wheel’s custom zest on a full-sized car without looking overdone and cartoonish was a challenge. The GM team scaled down the wheel arches and reduced wide red lines on the toy’s wheels to narrow red pinstripes on the production car’s wheels. The flame-job paint on the production car’s rear fenders is subtle and translucent, understated compared to the toy’s overt style. The classic Hot Wheels badge adorns the production car’s grille, trunk lid, steering wheel, door inners and sill plates. Holst’s team at Hot Wheel’s matched the car’s deep blue paint perfectly for the toy that goes on sale shortly.


“The project was like a childhood dream,” Ross said. “Every designer on the program has childhood memories of Hot Wheels. They laid the groundwork for their professional lives.”


The feeling was mutual.


“We got taken around the track by a trained driver,” Holst said. “It was insane. I was living every boy’s dream. My cheeks hurt from smiling.”


The Hot Wheels package costs $6,995, a far cry from the 99-cents-an-up toys in the seasonal aisle at Walgreen’s. Then again, in addition to the Hot Wheels badges and slick ghosted flame job, it comes on a well-equipped version of the V6 or V8 Camaro coupe or convertible.


Chevy dealers start taking orders Nov. 1. The car should be in dealerships early next year.

Chevrolet to offer first-ever drivable Hot Wheels production model. LAS VEGAS -- The dream of millions of Hot Wheels fans of all ages will come when the Camaro Hot Wheels Edition arrives at Chevrolet dealerships early next year (2013). It's the first time a full-size, production Hot Wheels car has been offered for sale by any manufacturer. The Camaro Hot Wheels Edition debuted Monday, Oct. 29, 2012 at the SEMA Show, in Las Vegas. A special run of the Camaro Hot Wheels Edition will be produced in the first quarter of 2013, and like the collectable toys on which it is based, when they're gone, they're gone. The appearance of the Camaro Hot Wheels Edition echoes the cues that Hot Wheels enthusiasts recognize, including a vibrant, graphics accented metallic paint scheme and even the red lined wheels. The result is instantly recognizable as a Hot Wheels. The Camaro Hot Wheels Edition is available in coupe and convertible models -- in 2LT (V-6) and 2SS (V-8) trims, blending exterior cues of the high performance Camaro ZL1 with a Kinetic Blue exterior color and unique graphics.

I may have bought a year to soon!

My dad came home with a Blue 67 Camaro Hot Wheel in 1968... I was 8yrs old and it started me down the road to owning over 150 of them by 1972.

2 thumbs up to GM for making this happen! :thumbsup: :thumbsup:
