I'd rather take one of the current Hot Wheels Fiero's and have it gold plated for $50.

I was thinking the same thing, I would want to see said paper work otherwise it is just a 'fake' (not that it is, but there is nothing stating otherwise).

If it is in real gold and in the original package unopened, I'll buy it. But I could buy a beat down REAL Fiero for that price...

Looks like a 5 year old played Dukes of Hazard with it before it was plated.

I have been collecting Hot Wheels for some time and have never seen them use a screw to hold the car together. Even on prototypes they use a rivet of one type or another. Also it looks like the car was plated then sat down on something before it was set. Notice the bottom of the car by the wheels - there are spots with no plating. I also look and I can not find any source that list this as one of the known prototypes.

I'm am not saying it is a fake but without more to document what it really is I'm going to pass. I might offer a couple of bucks for it as it stands but that would be all.

I might email them and see what they say.

i'll say it. its a fake. I drilled out the rivet on the bottom of one of my old Fiero Hot Wheel cars so I could paint it the same color as my car. After done, I put it back together, first I drilled out the old rivet and then tapped the hole for a similar screw. This is a fake. You can pop open any hotwheel cars like this, paint/plate them and then put them together claiming they are "a rare factory prototype". Bla, bla, bla......

I'll make a few, plate them in Gold or Silver, and then sell them for $200 each if you want.

I've never seen a Hot Wheels that was painted on the bottom.

I got this reply ---

Our entire inventory of prototypes-pre-production pieces all came from the collection of Michael Strauss, author of the Tomart Hot wheels price guide. I am willing to accept his word regarding the authenticity of each piece. People that know Mike know how serious he is about the cars and the hobby that supports it. And when you are dealing with early proto’s and the like we have found that consistent processes were right out the window. Mike told me the story about how when the Mattel people (designers) were done with them they would have a game of who could hit the trash can. Mike was able to preserve a lot of history that would have ended up in the land-fill.

Also, please review the base image of the Dodge Viper RT/10, it is held together with screws.

Best regards,

Brian

Well. If it is legit, and you own it, and yet no one believes you, does it really matter?
