Mattel Legends 1:24 1948 Cadillac "CadZZilla" Custom Coupe

Here is the Mattel "Hot Wheels" Legends we have been anxiously awaiting since we first saw their industry standard-setting Mercury release. The Boyd Coddington "CadZZila"! Mattel has done a superb job of capturing the custom lines and colors of this outstanding custom car. The lush eggplant purple exterior finish combined with the stark white interior colors make for an impressive show. This model comes with a 1/64th scale complementary model included in the $120 price.

While quite good, CadZZilla detail is not up to standards set by Mattel with their first Mercury release. Chrome work does not seem as bright or smooth in detail along the edges of the bumpers, chrome strips, radio grill, around the tail pipes and other areas. The back rests for the front seats do not drop forward simulating access to the rear seat. The front seats seem almost "toylike" in appearance. On the model reviewed, chrome strip alignment along the right side door drooped slightly where it meets the front fenders. Model does not have operating trunk.

Still, nitpicking aside, this model is clearly unique and exciting in overall appearance, including suicide doors, ZZ Top logos, and is certain to be a standout attraction in any collection. CADZILLA is available for order from Mattel....(800)852-1075...!! (10/18/97)
