This Hot Wheels Front Runnin’ Fairmont from 1982 was the bonus car that I picked up with the Maxi Taxi on eBay. Though I would say the Fairmont is another example of the really bad car design that was prevalent in the late 70s and early 80s, I do like it much better as a Hot Wheels model. The colors and design of the racing deco matched with those gold Hot Ones wheels – it almost makes me want to journey back to 1982. The real Fairmont was short-lived, being replaced in 1983 by the even uglier Ford Tempo. Similarly, there are only about 5 variations of this Hot Wheels casting, including another racing stocker, the Race Ace, that was released in 1986.
