They don't make them like they used to. Certainly not like the old Volkswagen Transporter Type 2 pickups. But if you feel nostalgia for VW's classic dropside workhorse, Hot Wheels can hook you up.
On Tuesday, April 5 at 9:00 am Pacific, you can click your way to a limited-edition Hot Wheels Collector Series Ten Real Riders Beach Bomb Pickup.
The Beach Bomb features two removable surfboards, a Spectraflame purple finish, flower deco on the front and sides, Real Riders slotted wheels with white “Surf's Up” outlined white letter tires, a full-metal polished-chrome-plated chassis, light smoke-tinted windshield and light tan interior. Sorry, the sides don't drop but you can make cool sounds and pretend that they do.
The Beach Bomb Pickup will run you $14.99 plus shipping and handling. Isn't that a small price to pay for a smile?
