I was in for a special treat at the Auto Show recently. Every year, Hot Wheels has a Special Edition Chevy Camaro with the orange track underneath. A brief backstory for this occasion: Hot Wheels was giving away free 2013 Auto Show Camaros, and in order to get one, you had to stay in line to race someone else on a Hot Wheels display track that went into a cone-shaped bin, and whoever’s car went into the bin won the race, but both contestants won a complementary Hot Wheels Camaro. In order for the race to go under way, the operator told us to push the button on a silver box opposite of the person you’re going up against. Both would push their buttons simultaneously after the green light went off on the box. Well, needless to say, I entered into the competition, and my HW went into the bin, and I even got me a HW Camaro. Life was good to say the least.
And last, but not least, HW even made a complementary poster of the car with yours truly on it.
