A “what if” custom prototype of what if a designer at mettle tried to bring the famous rear loading beach bomb to the modern era. Instead of using a computer or clay an old Matchbox casting was used like back in the 60's when Mattel was developing the original hot wheels cars....

I wanted it too look a bit rough as is the designer had a short time table to get it to look right. Even gave it a “blank base with just the words “Volkswagen” to mask its identity as a matchbox casting.
