Anyone here seen the Syd Mead documentary currently featured on the main page? I ordered the DVD and just finished watching it. The whole story of this Hotwheels Limo is talked about. It is based on this image:
That Syd created for one of the U.S. Steel brochures produced in collaboration with Hansen in Detroit back in I think the 60's (maybe late 50's). Hotwheels was replacing an old limo in their lineup and they wanted this and approaced Syd. So that is where this came from:
Now for a question. In the DVD the Hotwheels guy that is telling his story holds up what I believe is a 1:24 scale version of Syd Mead's Sentinel 400 Limo. Anyone know if a 1:24 version was ever sold? If so I'd love to track one down.
