I’ve been dreaming about making a real-life drift truck that resembles a retired Bigfoot, accordingly nick-named LEADFOOT....so I decided to make a 1/64th scale version first and debut it during car week. This is my blue day entry:

The build started with a couple of rough 1991 Hot Wheels Bigfoot Mini Champions trucks.

One was in decent shape with a garbage bed cover, while the other had a bent axle, scratched paint, and a nice bed cover. So I switched the bed covers out and started drilling the bad chassis out.

I cringed a little drilling a original Bigfoot out, just because they are harder to find, but it was worth it for the build! I also drilled out this older F150 in order to get the classic grill.

I then drilled out a Hot Wheels ‘62 Chevy surf truck, but forgot to take pics of that. Then I started cutting and shaping the chassis to make the old windows, new interior, and chassis work together....and I messed around with some wheel choices.

But in the end I used a set of gold-rimmed steelies the chassis came with. I really like how it turned out and plan on doing a larger Hot Wheels Bigfoot video/post soon.
