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:
We unveiled the Custom ’67 Firebird last night at the 17th Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Convention which will appear in the mainline sometime later this year. Making this car is a dream come true for me and I’m quite proud of it. It’s accurately detailed right down to the 5 toggle switches on my dashboard. Soon you too can own your very own BVbird, and for much, much less $$ than what I spent to build mine, ha ha. Thank you @hotwheelsdreamteam for making this happen! #bvbird #hotwheels #pontiac #firebird #musclecar #besthotwheelsever #hotwheelsofficial
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.
