Fun fact - Hot Wheels designers often come from Art Center. So ya know, depends on what your career goals are.
RIP, bread. You were a true and honorable loaf.
I lived in Hermosa for years. One year, friends and I woke up at the crack of dawn to claim one of the volleyball courts for the 4th, set up a bunch of tables, coolers, food and chairs. We had tournament-style games going all day. Then a lovely clearly-out-of-towner gentleman stumbled through our court in the middle… Read more
Well, the downsides you list are fairly par for the course for any motorsport (or hell, any fair, festival, or 4th of July in Hermosa Beach). But you definitely have to make a weekend of it if you can. I used to go with Hot Wheels co-workers every year and it was so much damn fun. Find a way into a brunch or lunch… Read more

It features legitimate designers, real challenges, A-list guest judges… Read more
Damn, I need to paint (or wrap) my car now.
