Warner Brothers are currently coming up with a nostalgia-churning film about Hot Wheels cars. Yes, you heard that right! As per the official information, the production banner has tapped J.J. Abrams to make the live-action movie about the iconic toy cars. The film would feature some of the sleekest and hottest cars in the world, along with motorcycles and monster trucks. But no release date, probable cast, or even a teaser picture has been announced yet. Here are a few humble suggestions to make the film great, Mr. Abrams, if you’re reading, this one’s for you!
Feature all the Most Valuable Hot Wheels Cars
Real estate broker, Bruce Pascal, is an authoritative figure for all the Hot Wheels enthusiasts and collectors, who are always ready to pay insane sums for tiny cars. He owns nearly 3500 cars in total, which are worth $1.5 million, and are contained in a separate 4000 sq. ft sized home. So, Pascal knows all the best and most valuable models of Hot Wheels that should make appearances in the upcoming movie. According to him, the movie should include Over Chrome Chevrolet Camaro – 1968, Ford Mustang – 1969, Brown Custom Dodge Charger – 1969, Ed Shaver Blue AMC AMX – 1971, Purple Oldsmobile 442, and of course, the 1969 Volkswagen Beach Bomb, currently the most valuable Hot Wheels model with a price tag of $175,000.
Feature All the Hot Wheels Legends Tours’ Winning Cars
The Hot Wheels award is a special honor for the real-life full-size cars, which they gain by winning the Legends Tour. The winning cars make their way to the coveted shelf of Hot Wheels toy cars, being reconstructed in scaled-down versions. So, the actual winning cars like the Volvo P1800 Dragster, the chopped Nash Metropolitan, the slammed 1970 Pontiac Firebird, and the Toyota Supra-powered 2 Jet Z, should be featured in the movie by their own rights.
No CGI Orange Loop-de-Loop
The thick, orange, loop-de-loop set has long been the prized possession of every car-crazed child out there. The track loop is the main base to run a pair of Hot Wheels cars engaged in a gravity-propelled, fierce, competition. This essential part of the universal Hot Wheels culture should be a vital part of the upcoming movie. And we know, Hollywood can create wonders if needed. So, if they are going to play with some crazy cars, they should do it right! So a life-size orange loop made from scratch won’t be too tough for a production house like Warner Brothers, right?
Fiat Chrysler Will Invest $1.1 Billion On Electric Vehicles in Canada
Recently, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV agreed to add an investment of $1.1 billion in an assembly plant it has in Canada. This comes as part of a rather tentative agreement that was made with the thousands of local autoworkers. The deal was made with Unifor, which is a representative for around twenty thousand Canadian autoworkers, and the money will be invested in a new electric-vehicle platform. It will be based in a Windsor, Ontario assembly plant, and will start in 2024, bringing two thousand new jobs to a plant that has laid off 1,500 people this year.
Fiat Chrysler Finally Looks Ready to Invest In Electric Vehicles
While the late CEO Sergio Marchionne was resisting investments in EVs, now Fiat Chrysler shows that it is ready to step up its electrification plans. It’s introducing several new models, including a hybrid Jeep Compass and Jeep Renegade for the European market, as well as a plug-in Wrangler that will be made in Toledo, Ohio. Last month it also teased a hybrid concept of its new Jeep Wagoneer.
Fiat Chrysler will combine with French carmaker PSA Group and create Stellantis – the world’s fourth-largest auto manufacturer. These former rivals will share the burdens and investments that come with developing self-driving electric vehicles.
FCA Has Started Talks With the Canadians for Subsidizing Its New Electric Platform
The Italian-American company agreed to similar terms Unifor reached with Ford Motor Co., in a deal from September. This includes around a billion in investments and government subsidies that will be aimed at producing battery-powered EVs. Fiat Chrysler also plans to create new versions of its retro muscle cars during each year of the new labor agreement. These will most certainly include the Chrysler 300, Dodge Charger, and Dodge Challenger models. Unifor President Jerry Dias said that they are feeling quite comfortable with the fact that those models are loved by the consumers.
Now, Unifor members are expected to vote on the Fiat Chrysler agreement this October. After the deals with Fiat Chrysler and Ford are made, Unifor also plans to start talks with General Motors Co.
