F​rom Drift Missile To Stock Swede: Hot Wheels Car Culture Volvo Amazon

A​ little bit of work on a new release Hot Wheels goes a long way.

E​ver since it was announced in October of 2020, I've wanted to do a factory stock conversion on the Hot Wheels Car Culture Volvo Amazon P220. After finding 3 of them on the pegs at Target in Springfield, Oregon, I decided to make a nice stock version, or at least as close as I can get to one. While there wasn't much I could do about the 2-door conversion and drift-car interior, I was able to use a set of Hot Wheels Entertainment "A View To A Kill" Aston Martin DB5 wire wheels mounted in an underchassis cradle permanently bonded to the underside of the car, to make it stock ride height. It looks to me like a decent rendition of the real car, and the scale & proportions are quite nice too.
