It’s been a couple years since we held the first HWC Charity Custom Challenge. Due to popular demand, we’ve revived it for the Charity Auction at this October's Convention!
What: 33rd Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Convention
When: Friday, October 4, 2019 at 6:00 p.m.
Where: Marriott LAX – Los Angeles, CA
Info: Click here for more information
We offered four of our high-end HWC style editions to some of the hottest customizers in the field. A full dozen of them volunteered their time and talents to help Make-A-Wish Greater Los Angeles. Your participation in the Auction will also help.
We asked the customizers to take the four cars and remake them into a special 4-car set. Anything goes: new paint, swap wheels, modify, chop, add... In the end, each customizer's 4-car set just has to scream "Hot Wheels" and blow bidders away at the Auction. That's 12 4-car sets, each customized differently!
The four cars we provided to each customizer to start with include a little something for everyone. They are as follows:
- 2018 RLC Membership Datsun Bluebird
- Holiday Texas Drive 'Em
- HWC O16 Custom Barracuda
- HWC Series Pit Crew Car
And here are the 12 participating customizers to whom we are grateful for taking the time to make this a special Charity event:
Tony "EssDee" Monzon
Chris "Nightstalker" Walker
These very special, one-of-a-kind sets can only be had by bidding during the Charity Auction at the Convention. And you help a good cause by helping your collection. Very exclusive! You wanna be part of that, don’t you? Hope to see you there!
