Hot Wheels are something that I’ve written about regularly here on The Rock Father™ Magazine for the better part of a decade. This year, Mattel‘s iconic diecast vehicles are celebrating a milestone – their 50th Anniversary – and we were able to take part. Earlier this month, a crew from NBC News paid a visit to Rock Father HQ not to meet with me… but to interview our girls, The Rock Daughters™. Addie and Finley have a Hot Wheels collection that far eclipses what i had as a kid, and little Finley is the proud owner of one of the rarest Hot Wheels products ever made – The Rock Daughter™ Edition Hot Wheels Bed, created three years ago in collaboration between Mattel, yours truly and The Step2 Company. On June 5, 2018, NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt aired the Hot Wheels special feature as the NBC Nightly Snapshot. If you missed it, here’s the video in its entirety…
Also featured in the video is Bruce Pascal, a famed collector who owns another of the rarest Hot Wheels ever produced – a VW Beach Bomb in Spectraflame Pink, one of just two that were made. When it comes to Hot Wheels collecting, Bruce has an impressive assortment in an equally impressive office, one designed by Wingate Hughes Architects to fully capture the true spirit of an American icon.
