Model: Hot Wheels ’83 Chevy Silverado
Line: Cars of the Decades (Walmart Exclusive)
Where to get it: Keep checking eBay, it doesn’t show up often
Why it’s in the collection: I have resigned to the fact that I will never have all the Hot Wheels ’83 Silverados, no matter how much I like the casting. There are a lot of people that love the casting, including some that will fork over $600 for the Military Rods and Fire Rods release, or $300 for the RLC release. I am just not one of those who can justify it. So unless some once-in-a-blue-moon find occurs, the ’83 Silverado collection will remain incomplete.
That is ok, because there are a lot of other great releases to enjoy, including this one from the Walmart-exclusive Cars of the Decades release. The Squarebody looks best with a simple deco, and this one has it. Hood and side stripe. That’s it. Add the 5-spokes and this makes for a nice model. I am glad I picked it up on the pegs a few years ago, because getting it now is becoming harder and harder to do. Like the Military Rods. Sigh.
