Road & Track magazine featured Bruce Pascal's collection in the story, "This Is What $1 Million Worth of Hot Wheels Looks Like," which was published on November 14, 2016:
As kids, a lot of us had a dedicated play room for our toys. But it's a rare thing to see a grown man who still has a room dedicated to his Hot Wheels. Then again, if you had Bruce Pascal's collection, you'd probably devote a room in your house to them, too.
After all, Pascal owns more than 3500 Hot Wheels cars, a collection that he claims is worth well over a million dollars. That includes 175 rare prototypes that were never released to the public, as well as one of the rarest Hot Wheels in the world—a bright pink Volkswagen Beach Bomb Rear-Loader. Considering the condition it's in, Pascal says that car alone is probably worth $150,000.
With a collection this large, Pascal says he'd one day like to open a museum. That's partly because he loves the hobby, but it's also because he believes he has more original-production items than Mattel still does. Talk about dedication.
