This is one Dream car that I’ve never seen in person, but is one amazing ride that even I would love to own myself. It’s a 1970 Plymouth Road Runner that is named “The Hammer”. I first saw “The Hammer” on RIDES (TV Series) a few years ago when the guys at Pure Vision Design when the team was racing to debut this muscle car at the upcoming SEMA show in Las Vegas.

The car has an all aluminum 526 HEMI big block engine and was featured on RIDES, in Hot Rode Magazine, at SEMA and of course in the movies Fast & Furious 3 and 4.

Of course the is muscle car returned at the 2010 Barrett-Jackson in Orange County where it was hammered away for $175,000.

But I do have to say that “The Hammer” is also available in a 1/18 scale GMP Scale diecast as well. personally I’ve been looking to buy one of them, but just haven’t been able to get my hands on it since they go for so much money. I figure if I can’t own the real thing, then at least I could own it in diecast form and it woudl go right next to my 1/18 2008 Ford Mustang Roush Stage 3 diecast that signed by Jack Roush himself.
