This site is dedicated to Hot Wheels made between 1968 and 1972.  These Hot Wheels models are affectionately called "Redlines" by collectors because of the red circle on their tire sidewalls.  The first 5 years of Hot Wheels also feature "Spectra-Flame" paint which gives them beautiful color.  I loved these Hot Wheels as a child in 1968 and have collected them as an adult since 1988.  If you have any Redline Hot Wheels like the ones pictured on this site or any related items please contact me right away I am always looking for additional cars for my collection.

to the smaller screens of the smart phone and tablet.

Each model will have their own page with all the colors again

In addition I have photos from the Hot Wheels Conventions and lots of other interesting information about Redline Hot Wheels
