Like most of you, the passion for collecting and customizing Hotwheels™ started early. What we couldn’t afford at a very young age only drove the fascination I have with this 1:64 car culture.
Being a collector first gave me the foundation for this obsession. I never realized that my diecast hobby would turn into a community.
So it began... It was 15 years ago when I first started customizing my car collection. Taking them apart and putting them back together was challenging and extremely fun at the same time. I would switch out parts and customize them to make them look cool. I would then trade them with other collectors, but often people just wanted to buy them.
As I got more involved with customizing, I quickly realized the lack of quality parts I needed to take my game to the next level. Not to mention the stage a diecast car needs to be before designing. So I began making my own metal wheels and started chroming the bodies. When I attended events to share my experiences with our community, It became clear that collectors and customizers alike were also looking for the same thing - Top notch quality products that add value and help create individual masterpieces.
My dedication to provide value to our community is the pillar of House of 164. With a team that lives and breathe the 1:64 culture, we share the same passion with each and everyone of you. We realize that our individuality makes us all unique and how it plays an important role in our lives & hobbies. The feeling of pride that falls over us when the last coat of paint is applied, and after the final piece has been installed.
