Hot Wheels Designer Brendon Vetuskey unveils his new ’67 Custom Firebird.

One of the highlights of the Hot Wheels Sneaks Presentation was the unveiling of the small scale replica of Hot Wheels Designer Brendon Vetusky’s ’67 Pontiac Firebird.

It seemed only a matter of time.  Those who have attended the Hot Wheels Convention in LA the last couple of years have probably seen the real thing, and it is truly a treat.  Brendon, like many of Designers, is a true grease-on-your-hands car guy, and is responsible for building this Firebird, in both 1/1 and 1/64.

Brendon even brought a early EP of his bare-metal beauty to Pittsburgh, and it looks awesome:


Brendon is responsible for a lot of Hot Wheels gems, from the iconic ’55 Gasser to one of my all-timers, the ’72 Gran Torino Sport.  Add this to the must have lists.

    1. I wish! I can think of at least 4 other castings that are employees cars (or same make & model as) and they aren’t done to death, so there is no reason to suspect that this one will be, too.

  1. This casting would be killer with the Cool Classics silver color used on the Ford GTLM and Datsun 240Z, and with the retro slot wheels used in that line.
