Another car that makes me wonder about how Mattel got such a bad rap.
This car delivers quite a bit for the money, no doglegs, working suspension, full upenings and a fair amount of detail for a $20 something price tag.

If every car in this price range would be like this, I would be very happy!

Yes, it had some issues but it is fine for the cost. If it were a $50+ model then I would have a entirely different set of expectations.

Actually, it seems that Hot Wheels bought the Maisto molds (like they bought the Beanstalks). Hot Wheels never has put a working suspension in a car and Hot Wheels always have doglegs; Maisto had the former but not the latter.

I thought I remembered that the Hot Wheels Mould wasn't their own. :confused

Whoever did it, its a very nice budget model!

That does look good for a budget model, Jeff

Hot Wheels, (Mattel) is like every other manufacturer. They make some bad ones and they make some good ones. That looks like a good one indeed. I'm not a big fan of the F50, but that is a nice looking model Jeff. . . :nicejob

For a budget model, that F50 is hard to pass up at $20! This is the first time I've seen it in silver and I must say it looks sharp. Jeff, you've really kicked it up a notch with your photography as your new lighting setup is doing wonders for your photos. :nicejob :nicejob

This actually is a pretty good model. Really good suspension on this one. Best 1:18 F50 I remember seeing.
