Lamley Daily: Hot Wheels x Fatlace VW T1 Panel Bus

#lamleydaily – October 31, 2017


Model: Hot Wheels VW T1 Panel Bus

Line: Hot Wheels x Fatlace Illest Store Exclusive

Where to get one: The Illest Online Store occasionally makes them available (you need to keep checking back), or you can get one on eBay.

Why it is in the collection: This is a no brainer.  I, along with many of you, have clamored for a “non-Pop Culture” T1 Panel.  The model obviously works in Pop Culture with its mass real estate on the side, but the model needs to be used elsewhere in a more realistic deco.


The Fatlace Panel is a gem.  It was released as a promo for the new Illest x Hot Wheels clothing line.  It is based on a real Panel Van, and with it’s simple Fatlace logo over grey, with the checkered roof and black chrome moon disc Real Riders, it is an instant must-have.  So I made sure I got one.

Of course Hot Wheels has figured out that this van needs to appear elsewhere, so we will see it in Car Culture as well:


That will make two VW’s that will for sure stay in my collection.  More on the Mooneyes in 2018.  For now, grab that Fatlace.
