Hot Wheels “Pro Racing”#35 Todd Bodine

 

 

The Collector’s Edition 1st Editions 1998 of the 50th Anniversary of NASCAR ‘1948-1998″

 

 

In an effort to attract more ‘adult’ collectors, Mattel developed the ‘Pro Racing’ series specially designed for the adult collector. These cars were designed with a die-cast body and chassis, detailed interior, and deluxe ‘rubber’ tires.

 

The car pictured is from the 1998 1st Edition and features Todd Bodine. In addition to the car, a collector card also came in the blister pack. The back of the car was printed with not only the NASCAR race schedule for the year but also with Pro-Racing information relevant to the driver… in this case Todd Bodine. Other information you’ll find on the back of the blister pack is:

 

  • Team: Team TABASCO Racing
  • Sponsor: TABASCO
  • Car: #35 Pontiac Grand Prix
  • Date of Birth: February 27, 1964
  • Hometown: Chemung, New York

 

This die-cast collector car features:

 

  • Orange/black colors
  • #35 (yellow)
  • TABASCO and race decals on sides, rear and hood
  • Green splitter
  • Goodyear Eagle tires
  • Facsimilie of driver’s signature on roof (very difficult to see)
  • Collector card (Upper Deck – Exclusive 1998 Editions

Happy Collecting!
