One car which every kid has dreamed about and played in their jubilant childhood is definitely the”Hot Wheels”. The idea of Elliot Handler of selling a minuscule model of a muscle car to kids became so popular that these cars are being rejoiced from last seven decades. Cars with protruded chrome-plated wings and stupendous painted graffiti in jazzy colours were artistic toy marvels. It was part of his fanatics to create a toy car enticing than the other toy cars present at that point of time.
In the year of 1968, Mattel introduced miniature peppy & brawny muscle cars having bubble windshields and names like Deora, Beatnik Bandit. The total of 16 cars models was introduced in that year and named as “The Original 16 or Sweet 16”. Mattel co-founder Elliott Handler partnered with a rocket scientist and car designer to forge these magnificent and transcendent lines of toys for ages to come.
