In 1968 Mattel entered the market with Hotwheels. Certain versions of the original redlines as they are called for the redline tires can fetch a pretty penny at auction. Hotwheels are still around today and grown men show up at Target stores all the time to get their collector fix.
After seeing the success of Hotwheels, Topper Toys developed the Johnny Lightning series of diecast cars. These were and are much more detailed than Mattel Hotwheels. More on the line of Matchbox. In 1970 & 71 Topper Toys sponsored the Johnny Lightning Special driven by Al Unser to victories in the Indianapolis 500.
