Give me 24 Hot Wheels that NEED to be in this display...


A few weeks ago I reorganized my loose Hot Wheels collection.  That meant gathering all the loose Hot Wheels I wanted to keep and organizing them in my Jammer cases alphabetically by carmaker.

So that also meant the three rows of Hot Wheels I have to display in my Carney displays were emptied as well.  Yes, three rows out of three displays is a little pathetic, but when my vintage Matchbox display arrives, Hot Wheels will get its own display.  For now, it gets three rows.

But what to put in it?  I started with three.  My favorite Chevy Panel, the RLC Thunder Roller, and the Car Culture Trucks Subaru Brat have all taken their slots.  But I need 24 more.

So give me some ideas.

Keep in mind I have no redlines, and really nothing before 2006/2007.  Not to mention I am a huge fan of the more recent output from Hot Wheels.  So models I am considering are those that were in there before, like the Candy Striper Gasser, Toy Fair Porsche, and others.  But there are a lot of other cool models out there that deserve a shot.

Any suggestions?
