The products spread to various countries around the world. The cars are now available at Walmart for you to purchase. The products are not only loved by the children, but adults also like to have them. Since they have become quite popular for the adult collectors, the manufacturer even produces some limited edition scale vehicles.
If you have ever seen it, instead of representing its manufacturing date, the date written on the Hot Wheel cars’ base tells the design copyright date. The design copyright date is usually given one year earlier before the first launched of the car. However, it is also possible to be given in the same year. For instance, if you see the year 2000 written on the bottom of the 2001 First Editions car series named Evil Twin, it would mean that the car is, indeed, released in 2001. However, it is initially designed in 2000.

That is why, do not be surprised if you find the newly made Custom Ford Mustang with the year 1968 written on its base when you are seeking and purchasing one of the Hot Wheels cars Walmart.
