Autogami, The Ancient Art of Folding Paper into Outrageous Vehicles let kids make their own fun line of paper toys. Recycled Racers is the theme of the seven different vehicles, each invented by Junkyard Joe using bits and pieces from the world's largest junkyard.
The seven original Autogami Recycled Racers
The story line behind the Recycled Racers finds a collection of misfit drivers teamed with cars to match their personalities. Who wouldn't want to hang out with Remundo Ondagaz, Shorty Fuse or even Porsha Glamarosa and her bathtub Porsche complete with hot tub.
