Bruce Pascal is interviewed and cited in the NorthJersey.com story, "Hot Wheels Legends Tour, celebrating 50th anniversary, makes a stop in Garfield" from June 16, 2018:
Out of all the unique cars, it was a tiny pink van that drew its own crowd. The "Beach Bomb" owned by Bruce Pascal, a Hot Wheels collector who owns over 3,500 of the miniature cars, is said to be worth at least $150,000. The car was never sold because it was made too small to fit on the Hot Wheels tracks.
Pascal said he started to collect the cars when the toy first came out and he was 7 years old. The cars were put in a cigar box and left by his mother's house until about 20 years ago. "I opened up the lid and the nostalgia just hit me," Pascal said, who is in the process of opening his own private Hot Wheels museum in Washington, D.C.
