I copied this from David Root's facebook, please read what he wrote below;
T'S FINALLY HERE! One of the top five coolest things I've ever had the opportunity to do in my 22 years was design this hot wheels original car while I was an intern at Mattel last summer. It was really an honor to get to design my own hot wheel that is now on store shelves! Huge thanks to @hotwheels_ryu and @kaidohouse for bringing me on board as an intern and working with me the whole summer.#hotwheels #hotwheelspics #hotwheelscollectors#rootbrothers
