Over on Jalopnik’s Opposite Lock section, Juan Barnett raised the idea of having a “Jalopnik” series of Hot Wheels cars that would best represent the site. Everything from a Miata to an RS6 Avant to a Merkur XR4Ti was thrown around for the hypothetical 5-car collection. How about one for our august publication?
At first I thought about switching out Hot Wheels cars for the very JDM Tomica line, but then we’d be unable to include our favorite American Iron
If I were to have my pick, it would be something like this:
1) Any Panther (which model is up for debate)
2) Murilee’s Project Car Hell Impala
3) VW Jetta TDI Sportwagon in Brown
4) Jack’s Green S5
5) Chrysler Minivan
Honorable mentions include the latest V6 Mustang, the 2014 Toyota Corolla, NormSV650’s 40 MPG Saab, any of the BigTruckSeriesReview@Youtube’s SRT products and Zackman’s Impala.
Of course, these selections would likely be doomed to commercial failure. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to go rip the NSX Concept out of the blister card.
