On September 19th, the CNN Money crew stopped by the Mattel Design Center to shoot a segment on Hot Wheels.

The interview focused on Bad to the Blade, a custom Hot Wheels car that was made into a full-sized car. CNN Auto Writer, Peter Valdes-Dapena and his crew, interviewed a few of the team members for the segement. Luckily, I was not left on the cutting room floor.
Larry Wood happened to stop by that day.
The segment follows how a Hot Wheels car is 'born', form concept to design, to 3D modeling to rapid prototyping, to final product...to making a full-sized car.
