Here’s a cool story on thedrive.com on the process of taking a real life car (a 1970 Pontiac Trans-Am in this case) and turning it into a Hot Wheels model. Easy right? How about 9 months design, refinement, pre-production testing then manufacture. Even though these things are small there’s a fair bit of work going on behind the scenes to create a new model, especially to be part of the Legends series. If you ever wondered what that process was like check this out, this type of toy design and manufacture looks like a great job!
If you’ve got kids show them that, then maybe take another look at that old beat up Hot Wheels you may have lying around, maybe a bit more went into the making of that than they might’ve thought:)
