An Oxfordshire-based engineering and design firm Attitude Autos has brought a childhood fantasy to life with their latest creation: an adult-sized toy car. The classic red and yellow Little Tikes car has taken on a new life as a fully functioning car that can reach speeds of up to 70 miles per hour. To build this nostalgic machine, Attitude Auto took a Daewoo Matiz, stripped out the interior, melted down the frame, and then spent over 1,000 hours rebuilding it almost from scratch: welding, drilling, installing LED lights, and painting.
