Cars 3: Tim Treadless

Tonight I'm getting right back to my Cars 3 collection and documenting my Mattel 1:55 scale diecast of Tim Treadless (Next Gen Racer No. 28; better known by his sponsor Nitroade). This character was released clear back on May 1st and was part of the initial launch of the Mattel Cars 3 toys.

As shown in the screenshot above, Tim can be seen during the big Florida 500 race towards the end of the film (also towards the start of the film during McQueen's crash scene). He's the next generation racer who replaces Phil Tankson (who also has a diecast coming out soon, if not already).

This is such a cool looking car! I love the sleek shape/design of the next gens in general, but this one is especially fantastic mostly because of the color scheme—burnt orange (one of my favorite colors) and dark metallic brown with some pops of white. Totally great.

If you're still looking to add Tim Treadless to your Cars collection, you're in luck. He should still be pretty easy to find at either Walmart, Target or Toys R Us stores (at least in my area, he's everywhere). If for some reason you can't find him in stores at this point, you can always pick him up on eBay HERE or Amazon using the link below.

Good luck on the hunt! Let me know if you have any questions or comments.
