Admire the Stingers, but prefer the Hot Wheels. Have recently realized how cool the 1:1 is...damn, quicker than a huge V8 Charger or a Mustang GT all from a 6 cylinder with 4 doors. Make a wagon or shooting brake version and I'd be in love!

Really like the C7 and Kia.
Thanks, they are nice ones. Corvette C7 is one of the better made Hotwheels with detailed front and tail lights.

Hotwheels did nice job on this and good colour too.

Kia have really done great job on the Stinger :) Last time I visited Kia dealership, saw there a Stinger in orange colour, so they have pretty brave colour available for them, but also more moderate ones, like the light grey one.

I have this one to. Check in the cargo area for a surprise,

Thanks for the tip :) Hadn't checked it out until you mentioned it. There's a doctor's stethoscope in the trunk, nice touch :) I probably should take a better look of my other 1/64's to see if there are more surprises to be found :D
At the time, I didn't know why there is stetoscope in the trunk, but recently have learned, that Hotwheels designer, who designed also this model, Ryu Asada, passed away recently at only 42 years old. Apparently he suffered from cancer several years.

Also have discovered, that lot of the Matchbox and Hotwheels cars I've liked & bought, were designed by him.

Rest In Peace Mr. Asada and thank you for designing these very nice models.

Now I see this Hotwheels Mazda MX-5 model in new light:
