Hi all,

I get some Tiger Wheels cars to review once in a while, and as detailed as they are, they are generally built for racing. Heavy cars, hard plastic wheels with a "racer's edge" inner tire, and always very fast!! Until now.

These two new Tiger Wheels Street Muscle Fords are a little different. Both the 1970 Maverick Grabber and the 1968 Shelby Cobra GT350 feature a little more style and a little less race.

This new line features rubber tires, factory correct looking rims, and gleaming "paint over chrome" lights.

The grilles and rear panels on each sports black painted highlights, as was the performance car fashion of the day.

The Shelby even features "jeweled" plastic headlights. Something not often seen in 1:64th scale.

Now these two cars are just as heavy as any other car from Tiger Wheels. But these are more of a collectible car than a race car, mainly due to the rubber tires. But that's not a bad thing. Not everyone races their cars. These cars are two of the finest examples of historic Fords that I've seen in this scale.

I think Tiger Wheels hit a homerun with this new collectible style.
