UPDATE: Hot Wheels® 40th Anniversary Road Trip
Tour Stops Set To Celebrate Milestone Year
by HWC Gary
We’re gearing up for the Hot Wheels® 40th Anniversary Road Trip — and we’ve got some special plans to help us celebrate the milestone!
Collectors will not want to miss out on what might be referred to in
some ways as one of the newest — and yet one of the oldest — casting
designs: the Custom Otto™! The historic release will be issued
at each of the stops below with a different deco and package (while
supplies last). This car is based on the blue vehicle which appeared on
the original Hot Wheels® packaging as rendered by the sensational
artist Otto Kuhni.
At each stop, you can expect to find Hot Wheels® designers on hand for autographs, life-size Hot Wheels® cars, Hot Wheels® “driver’s license” kiosks, Hot Wheels® downhill racing, a display showcasing the history of the brand, and product demonstrations. And don’t miss your chance to see the one-of-a-kind jeweled Hot Wheels® car created for the anniversary and the production of the four-billionth car!
