We’ll Need a Bigger Garage

Posted by laura on May 26 2010 | Fun, Lists

Our resident car designer has been hard at work, turning out pages of plans. The drawing above is a bit of a departure, what with the sun and the colors he chose. He was happy with it because he drew the lines with his left hand and watercolored with his right hand, but overall, it was a bit gushy for him. His drawings tend to be more like this:

More of a working diagram. So as we sat down to dinner a couple of nights ago, Hot Wheels had great news for Honey.

HW: Daddy said he’d give us an iPad, an iPhone and all the electronics we have! All we have to do is build him a car.

Tom: But it has to work.

HW: And go underwater.

Honey: Sweet!

HW: [after a pause] But Daddy, I’m going to need you to buy some things for me so I can make it.

Tom: No problem. Just give me a shopping list.

HW: Ok.

Me: Wait – what’s on the shopping list?

HW: Well, I’m gonna need jet rockets, a huge yellow button – a whole bunch of stuff.

Don’t hold your breath. At least until we get to the underwater testing phase. Then, I’d advise holding it – jet rockets are categorically unreliable when wet.

  1. There are a lot of callouts on the drawings above. I asked him, and here’s what I remember:
    #6 | Snack machine or Autopilot (not sure)
    #9 | Paint
    # 18 | License Plate

    I have only two questions – can I have one too, and what is the giant yellow button for? Please say ejector seat, please say ejector seat!

    Aaron has bins and bins of old electronics…I’m sure we’ve got a big yellow button around here somewhere!

  4. Has Hot Wheels seen the old Speed Racer anime series? Don’t forget the radial saws to mow down anything in your path and the regenerating tires.
