My wife’s aunt gave our son a Hotwheels gift pack for a gift of having a great dental checkup (she works at the dentist office :D ) In the gift pack there is a Trans-Am style 1st generation Cougar with a shaker hood scoop and a duck tail spoiler. It’s pretty cool.

Cool! I picked that one a couple of months ago at the grocery store. They also had a stack of the 50th anniversary Cougar ones as well. It seems the Cougar Hot Wheels are unloved around here. When they had the Redline versions, they were eventually clearanced out so I bought a punch of them to repaint. Now, they have a bunch of these left, too.

Picked up the Moffatt Cougar today



Like the other SunStars, it sits too high. They have used a bright green metallic paint instead of the Inverness Green

Years ago there was a super detailed (and expensive) 1/18 die cast of the '67 Penske Trans-Am Camaro available. I remember looking at how realistic the American Racing mags were on that thing.

I thought about picking it up to take apart, combining it with the Sunstar Bud Moore Cougar (correcting that awful tomato red paint!), making an accurate Trans-Am Cougar.

That TA Camaro is probably even more expensive now (if you could find one) - but maybe I'll look into it - would still enjoy doing that.

Thanks Leon -

I'll google it when I have a chance, but I'm pretty sure it was gmp that made the TA Camaro I saw.
