"What a coming of age story to those of us who can relate to growing up in the 1960's ! It was a time when technology didn't control our daily lives, we had to actually play with our friends or toys , not our phones. Bob's stories are humorous and insightful as they relate to both children and adult collectors."

"An awesome book with an easy read!"

"Reading this book was like having the private conversation you always wanted to have with an expert. Besides bringing me back to my days of building yellow tracks of joy and racing the coolest cars imaginable, I learned so much more!"

Redline Archeology – The Place to Sell Your Old Hot Wheels®

Redline Archeology searches for Old Hot Wheels® from the 60s & 70s
Known as "Redlines," Hot Wheels were first produced by Mattel in 1967 and released in 1968 to the general public. An immediate hit, they brought uncounted hours of joy to millions of children in the late 60s and 70s – and the beloved place they hold in the memories of today's boomers make them sought after keepsakes of those happy times.

Redline Archeology pays more than reasonable prices for clean Hot Wheels cars, race sets, store displays, prototypes, and accessories. If you were a child of the 60s and 70s and still have your old Hot Wheels cars in storage and want to sell, please call for a free no obligation estimate.

Your mementos mean top dollars. Get in touch with us, the premier toy car collector of redline Hot Wheels!
