New York Times (May 2018)
Bruce Pascal is quoted and cited in The New York Times article, "Hot Wheels Hits the Road to Reach Its Fans," which was published on May 21, 2018:
Bruce Pascal, a 56-year-old commercial real estate broker in Washington, is a lifelong collector. He was 7 when he started playing with Hot Wheels. As an adult, he rediscovered his love for the tiny roadsters and started collecting them.
“I was the kid who played with Hot Wheels the week they came out,” he said. “It was the personal connection that made them special.”
He now has about 3,500 cars in custom-built display cases and cabinets in his collection, which was once appraised at $1.8 million. After compiling more than 1,000 early blueprints, internal company memos, pencil drawings of proposed cars and advertising items, he wrote a book about his obsession, “Hot Wheels Prototypes.”
