As car fans, we explicitly know what drives our fandom.
But what about those who help fuel that fanaticism? What are their favorite castings, real-life cars and more?
We decided to find out via our Q&A series where we ask icons and veterans from the world of model cars about the automobiles that helped shape their lives.
Today we’re chatting with Bob Rosas.
Bob spent two decades as a designer and eventually director of Hot Wheels’ engineering group, at times working alongside the likes Larry Wood, from 1969 to 1989. During that time Bob was instrumental in such series as Crack-Ups and Flip Outs, as well as Steering Rigs and X-V Racers.
He helped pave the way for models to appeal to the collectibles market, and thus earned himself a spot in the Diecast Hall of Fame.
Stay tuned for more chats with renowned designers, influencers and more arriving in the near future! Make sure to check out our recent chat with Hot Wheels designer Brendon Vetuskey!
