Hot Wheels and Matchbox cars are a staple of nearly every child’s upbringing.But as children reach adolescence and driving age, the affinity for Hot Wheels generally seems to subside as they stop pretending and take their own place behind the wheel.

It also works for motorsports. Here Richard Burns' Peugeot 206 uses the effect to look like an RC car in a backyard.
