Every 2nd week we highlight the work of one individual customiser and share their best custom diecast work for you to enjoy.

It’s time to shine a light on some extraordinary talent within the custom Hot Wheels community. It’s time for…

THE CUSTOMISER SPOTLIGHT

This week it gives me great pleasure to introduce a man who needs no intro… ducti…. well great!?! what the hell am I even doing here.
Mark Cary is the man behind the handle @Macustomizer (click that now and then click follow and then come back…I’ll wait – in fact here’s some hold music….in ummm picture form)Mark Cary - feature image
Done? Ok moving on…
As is tradition here at MyCustomHotwheels – and because Mark kindly agreed to share these personal details, here is some insight into the man who creates such badass – and always clean-as-a-pornstar’s-ass customs!

How long have you been customising hotwheels and diecast cars?

I originally started collecting Hotwheels back in the mid-90’s and started making customs around the same time. I got out of it around 2000 and got bit by the Hotwheels bug again about a year ago.

How old are you and what’s your home situation look like? 

I’m 45 (but internally and eternally 21!) I married my wife Melissa in 2012 and together we have 4 kids (2 from her and 2 from me) and a grandson that’s almost 2.

Where do you call home?

I live in Port Aransas, Texas.

What is your favourite casting from Hot wheels?

My favorite older casting is the Street Rodder, and my favorite modern casting right now has to be the Turbine Time. The cab has such a cool vintage look. Perfect for customizing!

What sort of customs do you like doing the most?

Trucks mostly. I love mini trucks and the minitruckin’ scene. Show trucks, Sport trucks. Anything lowered, bagged etc. And I love old vintage stuff and and anything with rust and patina.

Do you have a favourite? Why?

When I was growing up, my grandad owned a salvage yard. I spent a lot of time out there throughout my life, so the Jack Cary Salvage truck hauling the 32 Ford body is probably my favorite.

I also just started a monthly custom build-off page on Instagram called @best_of_show_monthly
In fact… There is a competition going on as we speak! Looking at this recent Instagram post I realise ‘Crap! I had better get a wriggle on!’

Add a Touch of Diorama Magic (and More Custom Hotwheels)

As a lover of all things diorama related I am suitably impressed with how Mark is able to capture the moment as if in real time using only a background board and some props and accessories. Nice work brother – looks ace!
