I am not even going to try to explain why I like Donks. It really isn’t my place. I do, and I like them a lot, like I like a lot of car subcultures.
While a Donk is technically a 70’s era Caprice or Impala, the term has come to loosely refer to plethora of classic American cars sitting on unusually large rims. And Hot Wheels went for it.
I missed on the Hi-Rakers when they were out in 2006, so I got a second chance when a grocery store in my area stocked a bunch of older cars. I bought four of the five, and completed the set via ebay. And today I opened them.
I know a couple of these castings have popped up here and there, but going full Donk wouldn’t be a bad thing. RLC will have a ’64 Impala Low Rider, so maybe we can have a ’63 Impala Super Treasure Hunt? Or a Car Culture Donk? Bring it.
