Hot Wheels kicks off 2020 Walmart exclusive collection with the American Steel series. This is the first Walmart series (since 2018 Stars and Stripes) at 2.14 price point that came on quality durable cards. This set could be perceived as a much needed upgrade to the 2019 Detroit Muscle series. Overall the casting design of this series without a doubt captures the nostalgia and muscle of cars during that time. Diecast collectors into American classics and muscle will appreciate the work Hot Wheels put in this set.
Why No Gasser In This Series?
A Gasser would have definitely made this set a must have (but it wasn’t needed in my opinion). Maybe next year they will do an American Gasser series. The 64′ Galaxie 500, Grand Torino, 70′ Buick GSX, and 66′ Ford 427 Fairlane were beautifully showcased by staying true to the design, decals and color scheme of that era.
