Okay guys, I hope you are ready for a long one. For the occasion of the 356th day of the year, I once again tallied up all the Hot Wheels 356 coupes in my collection and came to 36. This includes the 6 stock ones (I haven't found the 7th, the latest silver multipack one yet), ones I’ve customized myself, and ones others have customized for me. This does not include the 8 or 9 I’ve customized and sent to new and loving homes. Either way, a lot of 356s. All a little bit different, all beautiful in their own way. So here, in no particular order, are all the 356s I could think of:

1. Ornamental

Not much of a custom, I admit, but it's in my collection, a 356, and something was done to it, so let's count it.

Well, there you have it. With the 6 stock ones, that makes 46 total 356s. Hopefully next year I'll be in the 50s, so see you then for another edition of the 356 Roundup!
