The third year of Hot
Wheels features 34 additional models. 3 new series were
created, the Heavyweights, the Spoilers and the Mongoose and Snake
Race Team models. Also popular were the Chrome Club Cars which
came only in a small box set with a large annual catalog and iron-on
transfer. One of the models the Boss Hoss Silver Special was
available by mail-order and came in an envelope. I can almost
remember getting mine in the mail back then. The Skyshow Set
featured either a Fleetside or Deora with a ramp on the back and
tiny planes that would fly off the at the end of the downhill track.
These two models were the only two that did not have a collectors
pin to match.
