to be honest i've never seen this one. and something just don't look right about it. the plastic tires just dont look right on it. usaly 100% cars have rubber.
also the quality of the car just isnt there. ( my opinion )
i would have liked to see pics of under the car.
heck i've been wrong before but eather way i would have passed on that car even if it was a hot wheels 100%

it's from the premiere line from 2001.they were the 100% of nascar but not in the black boxes.
So you're saying it is a Hot Wheels?
It's pretty elusive, outside of that listing, I haven't seen any mention of it anywhere on the interwebs. Even on Southtexasdiecast, or on another site listing NASCAR diecast.

The select cars were kind of a sub-series of the 100% cars that came in a regular blister instead of the box. They were very hard to find in the stores at the time and are still rare today. IMO that was a decent price for that car. As far as I know its the only time that casting was used.









These are all of the select cars...

ok no pepsi car but there was also the reg nascar cars.i got these.
richard petty HWs 44
kyle petty sprint 45
john andretti cheerios 43
ken scharder M&M 36
matt kenseth (rookie of the year) dewalt 17

there was alot of cars in this 2001 series but i belive the old school nascar cars were just the ones that gun had pictured.those were the only ones i ever saw and picked up.i got just a few of the reg nascar cars due to the 8$ price tag back than.

Thanks for the pics and info Guntown!

I see what Gunn means about the quality, it seems a little rough for Hot Wheels. But the engine compartment wins a few points. Makes me wonder if that casting may have had it's roots outside of Mattel, (i.e. Corgi Hot Wheels) which might explain the single release. I think the green/white "Give me a Dew" livery is pretty sharp.

Hey, hey Deal :wave:

I never picked that one up, I have the older Olds #42, #43 from the 50's and wait for it....






























100% HW #36 M&M's Ken Shrader car in prototype form, so says the faded sticker under the car. My baby sis worked for M&M Marrs as a VP in promotions, including theyre NASCAR program. They handed out a couple at a meeting, since she loves her big bro, I got it for Christmas in 2002, so the dates match up, IIRC it had those hard plastic tires and was crude looking casting of the Chevy, or maybe a Pontiac they raced back then...it's not in my 'special' box and remember, I moved recently from a big house to a small apt, so it could be in any of the 100's of crates I have.

I'll look for that Mt. Dew Buick, I just might have it too, if so it's yours buddy, I have waaaay too much NASCAR stuff :tongue:

I seem to remember her giving me some other prototypes from Racing Champions in 1:24, one was the new M&M's #36 (debuted at the new Las Vegas track around that same time). I might have a 1:24 proto of the Mt. Dew ride as well.

The 1:24 Racing Champions prototype of the #36 is hand signed by Ken at the inaragual race at Vegas and is not for sale folks, it's probably not worth much but, to me it's worth millions :hat:

I hope I can find it for ya Deal, and that your little one (bet she's growing like a weed) are happy and healthy :wave: , Ill PM you my e-mail so we can stay in touch through my off the forum times,

Craig
