Hotwheels GMC Syclone

Definitely my favorite mainline release of 2020.

I can't believe that it's been 10 years since the US Govt Cash for Clunkers Program. For those of us that migrated to DriveTribe from Oppo/Kinja you may remember that a sad GMC Syclone was one of the more noteworthy trade-ins during that program to stimulate some car purchasing money into the economy and help ailing automakers in the 'states.


My how times have changed in 10 years and now Mattel has immortalized this fine vehicle with some of the best mainline treatment I have seen in a while. Paint is flawless. Wheels are perfect. Details are fantastic (except the taillights. booo!). This is far and away my favorite mainline release of 2020. It looks fantastic from all angles.

  • I love that car, I wish they painted the headlights and GMC on the grill

    • The headlamps seem easy to do with silver/chrome marker. The GMC badge, on the other hand, will be much tougher as red marker just disappears when applied on black. Heck, it'd be tricky to even put in primer.

  • OK: how did you get such a crisp shot of the badges? I can't nail down mine.

    • My old Kodak Digital camera has a really great macro focus mode. :)
