Reverse Inspiration: Hot Wheels to JDM Legends to Speedhunters…

I really enjoyed this profile posted by Sean Klingelhoefer today over at Speedhunters.  Eric at JDM Legends plowed through this project in order to get the car ready for JCCS, and it was one of my favorites at the show.

I had the pleasure of meeting Eric at JCCS, and since I live minutes from his shop here in Utah, he invited me to make my way over there soon and have a chat with him about little cars.  Clearly, this 1:1 scale RX-7, based on the Hot Wheels model that bears his logo, is evidence enough that he holds them in some sort of elevated regard.

Enjoy the article.

And here are pics of the “real thing” (how often is the “real thing” a 1:64 model?):
