Johnny Lightning "Funny Car Legends" up against Hot Wheels "Drag Strip Demons". What's everyone think?

The Hot Wheel must be new, I've never seen it before.
There is more detailing on the JL, plus I don't like the way the stripes bleed on the front of the car on the HW.

WOW, what a great side by side comp Floyd! I have not seen the HW version in person yet, so I am glad you took the time to snap these pics and post them.

I like them both, as I was a fan of the car in real life, but what a tough call on a favorite.
Just speaking for myself, I would say the JL is far more accurate, while the HW "looks " better. Overall better proportions, body rake, ride height, etc. But the old JL really is far more accurate to the original.

Again, thanks for the post, neat to see them side by side.

One very good comparison... Great pics too... Very hard for me to call, but for my love of JL, I'd have to give the JL a small, slight edge !!!
