After my last Cars blog I got a few emails from other folks that had been fighting the Cars urges only to be lured in by it’s siren song. One such email also told me about a recent variation found that many folks have been speculating about- the red-wheeled Hudson Hornet.
The rumors were that it was a rare variant, or a Target exclusive. I had found the regular Hornet a few days before hearing of the red one. Then I found a red wheeled one last weekend at a Target store. I emailed the gang at Mattel to find out the answer to this riddle.
It turns out that this is a running change and that all Hudson Hornets from here on will have the red wheels. I know there are several on Ebay currently selling as "rare," don’t you believe it.
