Pro-Line is a major manufacturer of wheels, tires, accessories and bodies for 1/10-scale on- and offroad radio-controlled cars.
The company was founded in 1983 in Beaumont, California, USA and is still headquartered there. It quickly established a name for itself as a producer of quality products by capturing seven offroad national championships in 1992.
In 1993, tires swept both the 2WD and the 4WD classes at the IFMAR Offroad Championships, the company's second and third World Championship titles. 1995 saw Pro-Line win its fourth and fifth IFMAR World Championships at Japan's Yabate Arena.
That same year, Pro-Line purchased independent body manufacturer PROTOform Race Bodies, retaining founder Dale Epp to expand the company's market share. That partnership continues...

I like a lot of American cars, but I think it has become clear that I have a thing for classic American wagons and pickups. The difference between the classic American wagons and pickups is that I grew up in the wagons. My first car was the '84 Grand Marquis Wagon my mother drove for awhile, and I loved that car. To this day I count my lucky stars that I grew up in the era of wagons and not mini vans. So any replica of a land yacht wagon is going to get my attention, and in the world of premium 1:64 diecast, nothing beats Auto World's Kingswood. It took a couple of years, but I finally have all four colors (minus the chase models), and the black is one of the latest along with the tan version. I absolutely love this model, form its two tone coloring, to its roof rack, hubcaps, bench seats and detailed grill.

Hot Wheels just updated their 2016 Checklist , and a few more blank spaces were filled in. Of course there is an abundance of "Bone Speeder" and "Blaid Raider" types, those original names signifying more designer creations, but there were also a... The Beatles Yellow Submarine is one, and that should be interesting, but the other three licensed model additions are definitely significant. It starts with the Mazda Miata MX-5. The new Miata has caused quite a stir in the car world, so it is no surprise it is getting a lot of attention in the diecast world as well. Matchbox has already unveiled its version of the latest generation Miata, as stock as stock gets with Matchbox, and Hot Wheels has one coming as well.

Lionel Racing, NASCAR’s official die-cast model maker, has revealed the top 10 bestselling die-cast race cars of 2020. Unsurprisingly, Chase Elliott and Chevrolet are both featured prominently throughout the list, with the former claiming 80 percent of the entries, and the latter featured on all 10. For those who may be out of the loop, Elliott secured his first NASCAR Cup Series Championship title at Phoenix Raceway in November. Elliott managed to take home the win after starting at the...
Photo: Adam IsmailOne of the best things about being a car nerd that people rarely talk about is that we actually tend to be pretty damn easy to buy gifts for. Perhaps it’s just me, but even after 27 trips around the sun, few simple pleasures still delight as much as getting a miniature version of a car I really like.Well, the gift-giving holidays are now behind us, and while I didn’t receive — nor did I buy myself — any diecasts or model cars, the season has got me curious about what...
Back in 1968, when Hot Wheels launched "The Original 16", the collection managed to distill the American car culture of the era into 1:64 scale model form. Meanwhile, these tiny machines have evolved into a culture of their own, even though the principle behind it all has remained unchanged: finding brilliant excuses for adults to play with toy cars. So, why not invite the Internet to the party? Obviously, the specialist has already taken advantage of what the world wide web has to offer...
