    Designed by Ira Gilford, the Custom Volkswagen was one of the Original 16 Hot Wheels releases in 1968. After over 50 years, it seems fitting that HWC issue the casting as one of our traditional RLC Exclusive Hot Wheels Collectors Convention editions sporting a Spectraflame pink finish and Neo-Classics Redline wheels. We’ll make a few available here on 10/22/19.

    The Volkswagen Beetle was obviously named after a bug. Little Latin lesson for you: the word “insect” is derived from the Latin word “insectum,” meaning notched or divided. Well, this casting features a slide-open sunroof, so… But then there’s the Latin word “insector” meaning “pursue” — which is exactly what we anticipate you’ll be doing for this piece if you miss the offer. So we thought we’d bug you about it now.
