Just curious if anyone here cares for cars like Vampyra, Sharkruiser etc...

I remember seeing those cars as a kid and I wanted nothing to do with them--then for whatever reason I started with Sharkruiser and have been buying it ever since!

I'll also give a shout out to Double Demon for being so ugly and weird that it's kinda cool.

My favorite two are newer ones, the Fangula and the Astro Funk. I shy more and more away from Hot Wheels creations but I'll keep buying those two castings.

I like the wierdness of Pirahna Terror...

(borrowed image)

I think its cool, in a fishy kinda way. The huge metal 'jaw' is part of the chassis and appears to also serve as a counter-balance for this extremely SWB car.

I'm a huge fan of both Astro Funk and Fangula...Ed Roth, George Barris and Tom Daniel combined!

Gotta love that 60's Surf Rock, SoCal Hot Rod vibe!

Eventhough I only get realistic cars for the collection, there are a few "odd" castings that I will get when the ycome out.
I've always liked the Sling Shot and Maelstrom are two uf the older castings that I will get and from the newer ones I do like the Astro Funk and Fangula.
That video clip of Ed Roth's car looks a lot like the Popcycle.

Just did these up like I thought they should have been done.



You can't see it in the pics but the headlights and taillights have been detailed as well.

Are my eyes fooling me or is that an Orange Astro Funk??

I've got the green, the white & the pink mystery ones but haven't seen the orange. My daughter loves that casting!!

It's your eyes...and the crappy pics. LOL That is the pink one. I still need to get my hands on a white one to finish the hat trick.
Here's a couple more pics of the pink one...
