You see model cars based on real cars all the time, but how often do you see a real car based on a toy car? GK, our Tokyo correspondent, writes in that:
Takara Toys, maker of a popular Japanese line of toy cars (think Japanese Matchbox cars or penny racers) has built a human-size car based on their Choro-Q line. The real CQ Motors (Choro-Q) car has been out for a while but is rarely seen, even in Tokyo. Not sure if it is street-legal. Gamers may know Choro-Q from the Game Cube and GameBoy Advance game platforms.
mmmm this is funny, we need more 'cars' like this i think.
