Working at the Hot Wheels Design Studio is cool. Based at Mattel's headquarters, in El Segundo, CA - which is a bonus in and of itself for this Detroit-based writer - Hot Wheels is probably what every automotive designer thought automotive design would be like when they were seven years old.
It's one of those rare places where indulging in flights of fancy isn't just allowed, it's actively encouraged. Not to mention there's an awesome Hot Wheels racing track, which from the sounds of it, is home to some intense competition.

Sherman at Thunderhill Raceway for the final 2013 AFM motorcycle race. We were lucky enough to park next to a lime-green Kawasaki Motorcycle.
The ZX-7RR model is a limited edition race homologation version of the Kawasaki ZX-7R.
What makes it special? Stiffer frame, flatside carbs, close ratio gearbox, single seat configuration powered by a 748 CC DOHC in-line four putting out around 120hp.
