Design Issues

The designer of this vehicle has apparently been going up against Mattel because of his rights being usurped. He alleges Mattel stole the design of his vehicle, which his custom car company ICON produces, and didn't consult him or acknowledge him or his company in way. Here is a link to the article telling about this issue: http://www.foxnews.com/leisure/2012/06/06/custom-car-builder-claims-hot-wheels-stole-his-truck/ People have known for a long time that Mattel uses this practice to save them money. See this article about the original version of their Super Smooth casting: http://www.hotrod.com/cars/featured/8194-1939-gmc-custom-pickup/ Kenny HaarFager (talk) 22:11, August 21, 2015 (UTC)
