The Inside Story is a Hot Wheels Original Model designed to look like a van. Due to the huge glass window and sunroof, nothing gets in your view. A mid-mounted engine is located between the driver and the passenger. This makes sure that the back can be fully filled with a race car! That's right, this van is transporting a formula 1 styled race car. Because of the large window, the van is telling its "Inside Story".

This model has also been released under the name of Spider-Man Van, Silver Surfer and Beach Blaster.


The Inside Story has come out in the following 1/64 scale versions:
