Model: ’76 Chevy Monza F/C – Tiki Warrior
Release: Hot Wheels 2010 Dragstrip Demons
Ebay Link: Hot Wheels Dragstrip Demons
Why I am featuring it: The Dragstrip Demons Series that came out in 2009/2010 is, in my opinion, one of the best series ever put out by Hot Wheels. Most of the cars in the series are representative of real-life drag cars. Also, this series was the debut for most of the castings used. Some of the toolings have not been released since and this is one of those. It had three different releases: this one in green and two others in red, white, and blue. The series is cool for many reasons. One is because a lot of the cars exist in real life. Another is the overall quality of the deco on the cars. Whatever the printing process was for the graphics on these cars, they turned out beautifully crisp. Some are easier to find than others and I pick them up any time that I see them for a good deal. Sadly I was not collecting when they came out so I do not have many in my collection and I want them all.
