Pink Hot Wheels for Girls

So I really got into Hot Wheels a few years ago when my first son was born.  It has been a great hobby that is fun for me and my son.  I recently had a daughter born and started keeping my eyes open for pink cars.  There aren't tons,  but a visit to ebay can net you quite a few, and every once in a while a new one will show up on the racks at the stores.  I've began compiling a list of all the pink Hot Wheels.  I've tried to stay away from flat out purple (which is also another great color for that little princess Hot Wheeler) but some of these cars are a pinkish-purple.  I'm sure this list is not complete, but I'll continue to add cars to the list as I come across them. Ok, enough talk, here we go!


This is a Bye-Focal from the 1972 Hot Wheels series.This early Redline model has great color and smooth lines.  A great looking car!

Each group will race each other 4 times, once in each lane.  Points are awarded for place in each race. A 1st place finish receives 4 points.  A 2nd place finish receives 3 points.

Round 1 provided some great racing! I especially enjoyed DS Racing’s come from behind victory in race 1 of group 6. Group 6 had 3 different cars with a first place finish with The Undertaker finishing first twice.  Group 2 had some great racing with Team Gigantor pulling off a big win in race 3, but CC’s Riders’ Corvette looked very strong throughout.  Groups 1, 3, 4, and 5 saw undefeated champions with G-Force Racing’s Invader, TS Racing’s Bullet Proof, DC Racing’s Clear Speeder, and Rhino Racing’s Nissan Skyline Redline.  Groups 2 and 4 needed a tie-breaker race to determine the #2 car to advance from those groups. When the dust all settled the following teams advanced.

From Group 2
CC’s Riders

From Group 3

Four wild card cars were also selected to move on to round 2.  The wild card cars were the next highest point scorers that hadn’t already made it in. These cars were

DC Racing’s Lamborghini with 10 points
Red Rock Racing’s Hi-Roller with 10 points
DS Racing’s X-Steam with 10 points

H&J Racing’s Winning Formula and SS Racing’s Hi-Tech Missile  were the next highest scorers tied with 8 Points a piece.  A tie-breaker was run to see who would be the last car into round 2




H&J Racing’s Winning Formula came out victorious and became the last car to make round 2.
So the groups are set.
