Larry Wood the man behind the hotweels design

I had the chance to go to Larry's garage for an open hose a few times. and once I even tagged along on an interview to Larry's actual home! He is a very humble guy and his wife brought us cookies while we chatted. He showed us old drawings and stacks of photos... what sets him apart from other designers is when you go to buy hotwheels and one car might make you go "wow, look at this one..." It's usually a larry car. Now retired he has his own Larry's Garage line of some of his last work and old classics for mattel. One of his finishing touches is the real rider tire, it has rubber and tread like the real thing. Enjoy this clip!">
