Description

Whatta Drag is a Hot Wheels casting that debuted in the 1998 Hot Wheels line. Designed by Phil Riehlman, Whatta Drag heavily modified the BMW Isetta 3-wheel bubble-car and turned it into a V8-powered dragster. In 2005, Bruce Weiner of the Weiner Microcar Museum commissioned John Eversley of Evermoor Engineering LTD in Winder, GA to build a working, life-size version of this car, using a 1959 Isetta, a supercharged Chevy Big Block V8 and a massive single rear wheel; conceived by Bruce and a Hot Wheels model as the blueprint.
