Is excitement about the Cool Classics waning?
Hard to say, but there is an animated exchange going on over at HWC about the topic. It appears there are very mixed opinions about the Cool Classics.
We have made our feelings about them known before. Looking at the aspects separately, we see things we like. The wheels are cool, the paint is actually quite stunning, and they roll amazingly well. But the castings choices are a bit bland (that appears to be changing a bit moving into 2014), and the cars tend to mesh together. While the colors are vibrant, from a silhouette perspective, there doesn’t seem to a way to separate one from another. Plus the price might keep a few aisle wanderers away.
They seem to be hanging a lot in our area, but that doesn’t mean anything but that they are hanging a lot in our area. We will leave it to you to form your opinion on the line, and whether you will buy it or not.
So we have a few new Cool Classics to check out, thanks to our friends at Wheel Collectors. Batch D is out, and here are the models. I could not think of one to single out, so we are showing them all at once.
Like what you see? You can find them here…
