For sights and sounds, a host of hard-hitting audio components and crystal-clear TV monitors were placed throughout the Hot Wheels Caddy to provide passengers with plenty of entertainment options. Starting up front in the dash, a 10-inch Directed Electronics monitor was molded in for front seat entertainment. An Alpine IVA 900 head unit with a 7-inch motorized monitor and an Alpine 12-disc CD changer help Amy play and organize her musical selections, while an Alpine navigation unit keeps her pointed in the right direction. A host of other TV monitors were placed throughout the interior including two 10-inch DEI flip-down units mounted in the headliner, a 10-inch monitor molded into the back of the console, two 7-inch monitors molded into the rear door pillars, and two 10-inch monitors molded into the rear door hatch. A total of ten 6.5-inch mids and separates are split up between the four doors and rear hatch, while four 12-inch H2 Orion subwoofers rest in a custom-built enclosure. Two Orion 2500 D amplifiers and two 800.4 Orion amplifiers power this impressive list of audio artillery. Surrounding the subs is a completely custom fiberglass enclosure to enhance sound and looks, while a custom turnstyle logo plate wearing the West Coast Customs name lets everyone know who labored over the custom work, creating this impressive interior arrangement. Custom lighting was also wired into the mix to give the audio gear some more bold styling.
West Coast Customs has built one sensational Escalade in the Hot Wheels Caddy and made Mattel Vice President Amy Boylan look good on her way to work. Special thanks goes out to Jim Bastoli, Mike Martin, Quinton Dodson, Mike Megdal, Shane Roberts, Abraham Medina, Whipple Superchargers, Cooper Tires, Giovanna Wheels, SMACadillac.com, Gibson Exhaust, K&N Air Filters, Directed Electronics, SmokedLamps.com, Mega Metals, and Brembo Brakes. Mattel has made a die-cast Hot Wheel out of the Escalade so youngsters can experience all the trick modifications on a smaller scale. Parents should get ready for their kids to roll the kitchen countertop with this slammed SUV on 24s, as they recreate sound effects from the bumping sound system that exists in the life-sized version. For those Hot Wheels collectors out there, this Escalade will be just one more scaled-down automotive dream to add to the collection
