A hobby I took up about 15 years ago, is Redline collecting. Redlines are the old Hot Wheels made from 1968-1977. I stay in the 68-72 years, we call them the Spectra-flame era. Spectra flame was the candy colored paint jobs they used to use then. After that they went with enamel paints, which are nice also, but I stay with the Spectra flames. Here's some 1968s, these were made in Hong Kong. Here's the same 1968 models that were made in US. Camaros are one of my favorites. Here's some 1969s. These are a mix of HK and US cars. 70s. 71s. I don't have a group shot of 71s, so these are the Olds 442s. Very desireable casting. 72s. Plus some of us like to go for what we call Rainbows. Collect all the colors of one casting. These are my Chargers. I also recently got into what are called unspun cars. These are basically cars that were not put together at the factory. So they are very hard to find. These are actually unpainted,and unspun. A little blurry in front..sorry bout that. Just a taste of what I have here. Also have the Rumblers,and Sizzlers,and Chopcycles that were Hot wheel related, and were released in the same era. My Photobucket album is public, you can look around if you like. http://smg.photobucket.com/user/rdln%2A66/library/ There are several message boards around to chat redlines. One I'm involved in is called Chickluu's fabulous redlines. Membership by application. I'm a mod there. Not sure if the guidelines allow me to post another message board here. If so, I can add it later. Appreciate any questions, or comments. If you have any old redlines you want to share, then by all means..post away! Thanks. Frank
