2011 Hot Wheels Convention Customs Coverage

2011 Hot Wheels Convention Customs Coverage

The annual Hot Wheels Collectors Convention took place last week in Los Angeles. There were tons of great creative customs to be seen. I had the opportunity to talk customizing with several creative individuals; some I have known for years, and others I had the privilege of meeting for the first time. New or old friend, all of these artists are talented and super enthusiastic. The below group of photos is from the contest; I was unable to talk to every entry’s owner, but enjoyed seeing every one of these creative creations first hand.

After the customs contest, I invited several of the artists to the DCX room so we could have a closer look at these masterpieces. The photos below are the entries that we got an up close and personal look at.
