      Here's a field report from the convention. Weather here is great and so are the redlines. There's no shortage of minty reds at this convention, and it has been was well worth the trip. First, if you are in town I recommend these rooms:

      503 JE Blade
      524 Chuck Gaughan
      616 Patrick rat69ta and Gerry Brand
      631 Mark Axelson
      714 Jack Clark / buy an Elite Redline Guide!
      718 Dave Lopez / Mark Fletcher w/badge pick-up
      721 Pat/Andrew / Patwheels
      820 Pete Cambio
      902 Bruce Pascal / buy a protos book!
      914 Mark/Charlie
      1118 Dave Williamson
      1208 Neil
      1705 Russ Looker
      1830 Mark/Mike w/Strauss collection

      First - some of my scores!

      Did a deal for 10 cars from the Strauss collection, and picked them up from Mark and Mike. Could not resist and accidentally bought 2 more.

      The white interior open wheelers and Peeping Bomb are from Strauss:

      Cool HK white Ford J-car with black painted front grill (Strauss) and an open shock Vicky (patwheels):

      Honey gold Cuda

      Some pictures from Mark and Mike's room (1830). First, the protos on display, but not yet for sale, including 9 rear-loading Beach Bombs.

      The over-chrome Camaro really stands out!

      Some more beaters that they brought along:

      Black roof VW:

      Red Jet Threat and light green Mutt Mobile.

      An ocean of loose redlines for sale:

      More beaters:

      Buy a Hot Wheels Prototypes book in room 902!

      Some of Pascal's beaters for sale:

      Other nice reds in other rooms:

      A genuine purple 442 can be had in room 616, for the right price.

      All for now - thanks for the read and happy hunting.

      1. Redlines

      Hot Wheels were introduced commercially by Mattel on September 7th, 1968, launching what is known as the Redline Era (1968-1977).

      There certainly is irony in that name. The struggle against civil rights abuses and the war in Viet Nam pushed the US dangerously close to the redline.

      In looking back, I was struck by the extraordinary number of life changing events of 1968 and the lasting effect they had on our culture and identity. It truly was an amazing year.

      Jan 1 Evel Knievel fell in an attempt to jump Caesar's Palace Fountain.
      Jan 7 First Class Postage rose from 5 to 6 cents.
      Feb 1 Richard Nixon announced his presidential candidacy.
      Feb29 The Beatles' Sargent Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band won a Grammy.
      Mar15 Life magazine called Jimi Hendrix the most "spectacular guitarist in the world".
      Mar16 Robert F. Kennedy announced his presidential campaign.
      April 4 Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated.
      April11 President Johnson signed the 1968 Civil Rights Act.
      May 2 Gold hit a record high - $39.35 per ounce.
      May25 The Rolling Stones released Jumping Jack Flash.
      June 5 Sirhan Sirhan shot Bobby Kennedy. He died the next day.
      Jun26 Iwo Jima and Bonin Islands were returned to Japan.
      Jul 1 USA, Britain, USSR and 58 other nations signed the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty.
      Jul18 Intel was incorporated.
      Aug 1 Canada started replacing silver in coins with nickel.
      Aug30 The Beatles released their first album under the Apple label, Hey Jude.
      Sep 7 Hot Wheels were launched by Mattel.
      Sep 7 Jimmy Page's recently formed band — Led Zeppelin — played their first concert in Gladsaxe, Denmark.
      Oct20 Jacqueline Kennedy married Aristotle Onassis.
      Oct31 President Johnson ordered a halt to the bombing of North Vietnam.
      Nov 6 Richard Nixon was elected 37th President of USA.
      Nov11 John Lennon and Yoko Ono appeared nude on the cover of "2 Virgins" album.
      Dec12 Arthur Ashe became the first black ranked #1 in tennis.
      Dec28 The Beatles White Album hit #1 where it stayed for nine weeks.
      For any of you that haven't seen it, here is an early Hot Wheels TV Ad from 1968.

      Although Summer of '69 was actually released in 1984, I think it sums up the feelings many people have of the Redline Era. What was Bryan Adams doing in 1968? He was a nine year old kid strumming his 6 string and playing with Hot Wheels!

      I'd love to hear your thoughts on 1968 and Redline Era. Please leave a comment.
