Goin' Fishing (Mattel Zowee)
One of the few toy hot rods I've hung onto all these years is from the Mattel line of "Zowee" custom cars; Goin' Fishing is cool simply for the fact that it's a great white on wheels! It's interesting to note that this came out in the 70's, and though I'm not 100% sure, I do believe this car was released even before the movie JAWS hit theaters in 1975. Other wild cars in this series featured stuff like a skull, a devil head, a severed arm shifting, a red knight, a sombrero, etc... all on wheels! Check eBay if you're interested in learning more. One source claims my shark car is "rare" and valued at $75!
