THE WORST CHRISTMAS PRESENT...AGAIN
Ho ho ho! Hello, DriveTribers and a very happy Christmas. It's been two very long and very political years since we last took a shufti at a Hot Wheels die-cast model car, a car of the miniature, but that's mostly because all the toy shops here stopped selling them. However, while doing some last minute Christmas shopping, I managed to find some cars of little people and shall be reviewing them! We're back in business! Also, do excuse me; it's been two years, so I forgot how I used to do this. But let's not get bogged by that because this time we'll be taking a shufti at that makes Giants go "OOH and AHH" when they see it. A car, which by the look of it, is very noisy, and Richard Hammond managed to ruin in the Patagonia Special...it's the 1968 Ford Mustang!
Now, if you've been reading previous reviews, you'd probably know that the first thing to catch my eye, or indeed not to, are the missing mirrors. The missing door mirrors, however, were not the the first things to catch my eye this time, but it was something rather more err...obvious. What in the name of all that's holy were the guys over at Hot Wheels HQ thinking when they decided to ruin what already wasn't that beauty of a car. Not only did they cut an unnecessary hole in the bonnet for a needlessly ginormous engine...unless they have it out fr showoff, which is even worse, but they also gave it those weird looking metallic side panels. I'm not even going to start on the adjusted tyres and height because I'll probably end up sounding like Malcolm Tucker. All I'm going to say is this, looking at it from the front makes it look like the outcome of sexual intercourse between a redneck and a 70s punk band member.
I was about to start talking about the upside like the wheels that don't come out of alignment and the paint job that looks like it was done by the supercomputer from The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy until I saw that they didn't even bother with the logo on both the back and front of the car. Oh, and I can't talk about the inside cos they blacked out all six windows.
In a very small nutshell, yes, this car is good and it looks and feels like it has too much energy and power trapped inside it and it just wants to let it all out at once, but, I'll be honest with you, I thought it was a Dodge when I first saw it until I read what was on the box it came in. And on that bombshell, it's time to end this Christmas review. Buhbye.
Sorry about the lack of jokes.
