It's a common adage amongst SEMA vets that one's first trip to the show is basically a waste. The sensory overload is so insane that all you can do is spend your time basking in the pure insanity of the place. And it was for us as a neophyte auto-journo on our first trip to Vegas back in 2001. But one thing we'll never forget is the sight of the full-size Hot Wheels Twin Mill unveiled in honor of the Mattel brand's 35th Anniversary. The boys over at Street Rodder have added the whole sordid tale of the car's genesis and completion (minus the details involved in Boyd's 1998 bankruptcy) to their "Milestones" section, so why not mosey on over and take a gander at this much-motored monster of an overgrown toy?
