"The 2002 Ronald McDonald Charity Speedster"

This custom Slammed-Speedster features a airbrush-pinstripe tribal flame design and has been slammed to the ground with a different set of lower profile tires.  It also features a "one-off" prototype resin figure of Larry Wood that was never used by Mattel for the final production run.  The Larry Wood figure originally was designed in a Santa outfit for the production Christmas Speedster, the figure itself was cancelled and a "traditional" Santa was put in its place for the final xmas production run.  

Not to let it go to waste, we got the figure from Mattel's Model Shop, and trimmed down the shirt a bit to differ from the original "Santa" outfit, and put together a special custom project for the charity auction.  This Flamed Speedster raised over $3500 for the Ronald McDonald's Children Charity Auction at the '02 HW Convention in Irvine.  Special thank you goes to Sue Kollins, who did an amazing job on the hand-painted details of the resin figure along with Bruce Schultz/Bodylines Co. for completing this one of a kind work of art!
