Model: Hot Wheels ’55 Chevy Bel Air Gasser
Line: 2015? 2016? 2017? RLC Membership Models
Where to get them: You needed to join the RLC who knows how long ago to qualify for these, so eBay or other shops are the only way.
Why they are in the collection: Well, because I joined the RLC as a Chrome Member whenever the last window was open. The RLC has gone through so many issues since then I can’t even remember when that was. Thankfully a new membership window for 2018 will open soon.
But there will not be a Chrome Membership this time. In years past, the Chrome Membership allowed the member to receive all three Membership Models, in this case the three Gassers. Memberships after that were based on how early they were received. I explained it in last weekend’s Saturday Showcase:
For 2018, there will only be one model, the Datsun 510 in olive, which is probably the better idea. That leaves two more SKU’s for other RLC models. Just a little more variety.
But I am not complaining about these. The Gasser is gorgeous, and these three are far better out of the package. So the other reason these are in the collection is because they are ’55 Gassers, and I am committed to adding every one to the collection.
