Cool. The HW replica might help to cement the mid-90's wagons' design legacy.

Last summer the clerk at O'Reilly's Auto Parts took me outside to the trunk of his car where he had a radio controlled, gasoline powered 850 sedan, about 14 inches long. It had a multi-speed transmission, acceleration, brakes. It needed some work, what 850 doesn't? Also, very cool, though. So the replica concept has had a grip on 850's for a while.

Very, very neat. I was 9 yrs. old when Hot wheels first came out. They blew away Matchbox. I'll have to get one of these and park it next to my '68 Barracuda.

Check the third seat to see if or has the heated option.
