Let’s get this show rolling once again for 2019. Hot Wheels Car Culture miraculously is entering is fourth year in existence. For you long-term collectors, you know what a rarity it is for a premium line to last that long. Pop Culture and Replica Entertainment continue to fill their respective niches, but Car Culture has kept on truckin’ a lot longer than most comparable premium lines.
And let’s just keep it going. As long as there are cool themes to take on, cool new castings to create, and existing models to gussy up, Car Culture should continue to roll on. At least I hope it will.
The first mix for 2019 if Gulf. The deco is the theme here, so Hot Wheels has the freedom to do in several directions with the model selection, and they did. One JDM, one Muscle, a Supercar and two Euro models. The GTI seems the weak link, but the others are spot-on selections.
Wheel Collectors sent me a set to preview, and that is just what I did. You can buy the set now:
