Hot Wheels Shark Cruiser[edit]

User edited this page with the following: "Its design is most likely inspired by the Hotwheels toy car model known as the Shark Cruiser - a shark on wheels." Possible but unlikely imo. I've removed it for now, but if we reach a consensus that it's correct, we can move it back. Link to the toy, for comparison's sake: Sordyne 12:43, December 23, 2010 (UTC)

I don't know... It doesn't look that much alike to me, although the Hot Wheels toys have some sharks here and there. But, is that toy car from before or after CarmaTDR? {EspyoT} 15:05, December 23, 2010 (UTC)
I've done some investigation, and it seems the toy is actually called "Sharkruiser" and dates from 1987. Pretty sure it's a no on any connection between Sharkruiser and Jaws. As luck would have it though, my investigations turned up what I reckon looks to be pretty obviously the real inspiration: Sordyne 07:53, December 24, 2010 (UTC)
