On HotWheelsCollectors.com. There is a Club that goes by the name Red Line Club or the RLC. Every year they open the club memberships to first previous members then new comers. The RLC enables to you first crack at HWC exclusive car releases/sets/clothing/etc..While you pay for the membership per year and in turn you renew/begin your membership. You will receive an exclusive sign up car that usually comes in 4-5 colors The color break down of the colors is predetermined on membership numbers 01-3,000 is the first color, 3,001-7,000 next color and so on. So the earlier you get your order in the better chance you have at getting a more limited numbered release color. This year’s club car was the VW Drag Bus in 4 color/deco schemes. I got in on the 2nd series (REDLINE FIRE DEPT scheme) It’s a pretty nifty little vehicle.

Hot Wheels Classics Series 5 ’47 Chevy Fleetline Chase

The 1947 Chevy Fleetline (Aerosedan) has been a staple in the lowriding community for quite some time. Being referred to within the lowrider community as a BOMB. The old school class this car possesses is incredible. Whether you slap 13 inch spokes on it and hydro it or go with the whitewalls with original moons and bags it stands on its own within the current car building culture.

With that being said Hot Wheels has replicated the beauty of this car within its Classics line up and the “chase” vehicle with real rubber tires sets it off (it should have ONLY been released with rubber tires in my opinion)! But I was more than happy to shell out the $4 for it and bring the “BOMB” home with me. I can see glimmers of Felix the Cat and license plate charms as I type this!
