Hot Wheels Retro Entertainment Beverly Hills Cop ’68 Chevy Nova

Hot Wheels has been doing a great job with their adult collectible series. Every time I see a new series, I’m tempted to open a new genre in my collection. DC Comics, General Mills, Hersheys, Hanna-Barbera, Looney Tunes, Muppets – all of these would be fun to have hanging on my personal pegs. But, usually I can resist. That is, until I find a Nova or an Impala.

I’m not even sure I’ve ever seen “Beverly Hills Cop”, the 1984 movie starring Eddie Murphy which inspired this casting. The Internet Movie Cars Database (yes, there is such a thing) lists the Nova in the movie as a 1970 model. Other sources show it as a 1972. And the shiny chrome wheels on this model don’t quite match the stock wheels with hubcaps that the movie car wore.
