Hot Wheels‘ “Cars of the Decades” is a special edition series that selects one iconic model to exemplify the decade in which it was born. Each car comes in special packaging and paint schemes reflecting that period — flower power for the 60s, art deco for the 40s. Cars like the ’32 Ford, ’57 T-Bird and ’67 Camaro have embodied their respective eras, but next year the Toyota AE86 Corolla will represent the 80s.
With so much attention going to the neo-hachiroku, it’s good to see the car that started it all get immortalized in this series. But there’s one catch — Cars of the Decades will only be available at Wal-Mart so, um, get your pepper spray ready.
