First Look: Hot Wheels Cool Classics Batch E...


Yeah, the jury is still probably out on these, but the batches seem to be getting better.

The COPO in pink is pretty sharp, the Mustangs are Mustangs, and we have always liked the Impala. But we do find ourselves with little to say on these, because it is hard to equate them to any real cars.

So we comment on them as little toy cars, which they are.  And they look really good.

More are coming, and variety is on its way.  But we are more excited for Retro Entertainment, which is clearly continuing where 2013 Boulevard left off.  We will talk about that later.

But we are done for now.  Check out the pics:

(And find Cool Classics Batch E on ebay.)


Hot Wheels Cool Classics Batch E:

'68 COPO Camaro






'70 Ford Mustang Mach 1 (with modified spoiler)





'61 Impala





'53 Chevy




'68 Cougar




'67 Shelby GT500

  2. Man, I LOVE that '53 Chevy casting. So cool, especially with the plastic hood.

  4. Like the finishes but the 5x price is not justifiable.

    1. Lets say an all metal/metal candy painted Hot Wheel costed $.79-1.00 in 1968. With current inlation rates the same car in 2013 should be between $5.30-$6.71.

  5. The Mustang is pretty nice. That pink Camaro is pretty hot, actually! I really love the stripes on it too.

  6. According to the cards there are only 30 cars and batch E are the last 6. Is that only for 2013? Will there be more cool classics for 2014?

    1. Yes, the series is continuing for 2014. More variety based on pics from the convention and pics sneaked to RLC members.
