Watch Somone Meticulously Restore Hot Wheels Diecast Cars and Trucks

Here are our three favorite rebuilds.

Perusing the autos and vehicles YouTube category, we flicked through these unthinkable restoration videos. But unlike most transformations, these auto-remodels are methodically sculpted as Hot Wheels cars and trucks, not actual rides. Making for a painstakingly detailed approach to restore whips, these videos are mysteriously tranquil to watch.

Here are our three favorites:

Lamborghini Countach LP400

Watch in awe how the original Hot Wheels Lamborghini Countach LP400S receives a major facelift transforming the bland Mattel model into a sexy green Countach LP400.

Ford F1

Because every custom Hot Wheels Ford F1 truck should have a real wood bed. 

Ford Mustang No 8

OK, so this may not be a pure Hot Wheels restoration job. But this Matchbox (Hot Wheels' main competitor back in the day) overhaul is too elaborate to miss.
