This definitely shows my age, but in college when the N64 came out we would spend hours playing Goldeneye and Mario Kart in the dorm rooms.
So when I found out that Nintendo was teaming up with West Coast Customs to create full size karts from the game I felt nostalgic.
“Ever wanted to see a real-life kart from Nintendo’s hit Mario Kart™ series outside of the Mushroom Kingdom? Nintendo has teamed up with West Coast Customs to create life-size models of two karts – one for Mario™ and one for Luigi™ – from the upcoming Mario Kart 7 video game for the portable Nintendo 3DS™ system. These unique electric vehicles were unveiled today at the LA Auto Show, where they will be on display Nov. 18-27 in the lobby of the West Hall of the Los Angeles Convention Center. Visitors attending the show will be able to take photos of the karts, sample the Mario Kart 7 game before its Dec. 4 launch and participate in multiplayer game play.”
Someone get me the Bumble V Kart stat. Or at least let me test drive the thing.
