“When Don” Don James Executive Vice President of Nintendo America, “requested the meeting and he told me he needed us to create some of the Mario Kart 7 cars in real life I was excited and ready for the challenge. Then he said they need to have a hang glider for flying and a propeller for underwater maneuvering I thought, he must be joking!” said Ryan Friedlinghaus, founder and CEO of West Coast Customs.
Ryan and his West Coast Customs team take on an “impossible” build. No strangers to a challenge, Nintendo challenges Ryan and his crew to make cars out of digital images and data from a video game. Not one to back down West Coast Customs starts with 2 GEM cars and strips everything but the batteries, wiring and frame. From here they must create scaled size replicas of the Mario Kart and the Bumble V kart from Nintendo’s newest game Mario Kart 7. Join us to see this amazing and unique process and watch West Coast Customs make the impossible a reality!
