Hot Wheels 850 BTCC Estate - Who thinks these are cool?

Post by matthew1 » Sat Jan 04, 2020 7:58 am

I do. I think these are awesome, as a Volvo fan and 850 lover. I think the BTCC effort is a gem in Volvo's history. Absolute wonderful accomplishment.

I'm not at all into toys or collectibles. I come at this purely from a Volvo nostalgia nut.

If you were involved with that BTCC effort, or better, pulled strings to make it happen, thank you. And please, get in touch with me. I have questions and yes, yet more compliments.

More about these Hot Wheels cars.

I had to create that and throw it in here. I get goosebumps when I see it, always have.

It's certainly the most iconic Volvo racing photo I know of. The image might even have some weight in auto racing photojournalism. I don't know. My mind doesn't reach that far out.

WHO THINKS THESE ARE COOL?
Those are COMPLETELY cool! I've never seen one. I did see a Hot Wheels Porsche 356 race car on a team transporter the other day.

Too funny. I took my wife & daughter to the antique store a couple days ago to get some NOS matchbox cars for our daughters track. I searched high and low simply for wagons. Obviously most hopeful for Volvo wagons, but open to any wagon really.

All I could find was a total of three Datsun 510 Bluebirds wagons, & a couple old domestic turds. So we got them all (& many others) , not the domestic wagons, just the Datsun’s. They are seriously a cool wagon (toy) & look remarkably Volvo-esque. Not very fast on the hot wheels track though.

While we were driving back home my wife was researching Volvo + hot wheels & came upon the same topic, just days before you posted this. So she found several of these cars (new) for sale on eBay & won the bidding on the lot of them for like $6 shipped.
