I tries to post this earlier but it ended up in an entirely different thread....somehow.
I'll try again....

OK.
I'm going to nit-pick.
But the packaging say's 67 Mustang.
I happen to know, because my parents owned one, for a long time. But the Hot Wheel is more specifically a 67 Mustang Fastback, because my parents had a 67 Mustang (non-Fastback).
I always thought the Fastback's looked "tougher" but I loved the 67 regular Mustang.

The Hot Wheel, brought back some memories, As our 67, had the same vents in the hood and side vents, which I thought were really cool when I was a kid. IMO, both incarnations were really great looking vehicles

Back in 1989 i had a date with a pretty little red head. And really wanted to impress her. I had just finished up a my very first restoration on a 1968 Mustang fastback. We went out and had wonderful time. The next day her girlfriend asked which car did he drive as she knew both of us, and that pretty little girl said idk? Our freind asked was it a red car or black sammeri? The answer was it was red, lol.
what was so important to me didn't even come into play with her. LOL. But to this day that pretty little lady still puts up with my cars, shes now my wife
; < )

I always felt those 67 Mustangs were great.
I loved our 67 regular Mustang. I thought the vents on the side and the hood, gave it a really sporty look. And it was somewhat transitional, still connected to the first Mustangs, which IMO had nearly a European look to them, but starting to "Bulk Up" into the more classic muscle car look. The fastback was ahead of the curve with that look.

IMO those were great vehicles.
Loved the look.

The only thing I didn't like about the one my parents owned, was that it was the metallic almost army or pea green that was popular with Fords at that time. Never liked that color.
Years later, at some point my parents decided to have the Mustang repainted. I remember listening to them debate the color choices. I was hoping for "Black", "Red" or ANYTHING different.
Disappointingly after much debate my parents decided to have it repainted the exact same color.

One of the best presents my Son (who is now 8) has given me is the ability to shop the Hot Wheels section without looking out of place. Granted he keeps trying to escape to the Legos, Bey Blades, Pokemon cards, Transformers or some other kind of nonsense. LOL

hah! yea when my son was younger i totally went with the idea " i was shopping for him" . now we both somewhat uncomfortably sift through the cars together. the other day i was looking at the cars and a nice looking lady in her maybe late 20s popped up with her kid, who wanted to look at the hot wheels too...i couldnt help but wonder what she thought for a second as i got slightly embarrassed...but then i realized her son might find a car i want...and got back to the hunt!

Great displays! I really need to carve out a space at my house and do something like that. Even love the intake manifold on display. I have a Victor Jr from my SBF from many years ago that I can't bring myself to sell. Wall art would be good use for it!

Thanks for the inspiration!

Hot Wheels/1975 Warpath/AMX II/ from red to blue


AMX 2 i got from a seller on ebay, ruff but the wheels are in good shape and the painting is the best part.


Filed the seams and window openings. Rubbed the filing areas with green scotch bright and polished for an hour with 3x steel wool.


This is a timeless design, the Pantra by ford was built, that was very close to the AMX 2, but only a few test AMX 2 were built but not sold as a production car. : [
