In Honor of 50 Years of Hot Wheels, Check Out These Pics of My Son’s Cars

Hot Wheels turns 50 this year, and to celebrate, I snapped a few photos of my son’s collection.

When I say “collection” I don’t mean thousands of mint-condition cars that are still in the box and never touched. I mean cars that have been played with, loved, fought over, and even earned. Yeah, we’ll bribe our kids with Hot Wheels cars if they can make it through Target without going nuts, so what?

I have no idea how many cars he actually has. There are plenty that aren’t shown here. Some lost, in the couch, at grandma’s, under the bed… who knows. I personally try to steer him towards the “real” cars and not the NINJASHARK2000 style, but he gets them as gifts so I’m not too picky. And besides, they’re his toys, not mine. Some of these aren’t even Hot Wheels, but does he care? Nope.

If you like these, feel free to share. I had fun during the photo shoot and I hope you enjoy.
