It’s perfect. Absolutely perfect. I need it. Now.
Having two small children, sleep is a very precious and very limited luxury. So since the race aired at 2am local time, I did not get to see the live broadcast. Does anyone know if it will re-air later in the day? Rolls Royce for your time.
The VW wagon is not definitely up for trade. I’m still debating on that one. But the right offer might temp me to part with it since it doesn’t necessarily fit with my collection.
Had to go to Sam’s and get gas on my way into the office this morning. I decided to run into Walmart real quick just to see what they had. I got to freshly stocked dump bin and the nice lady informed me she had just put out 4 boxes, most in the bin, but the overflow went on to the pegs. I rummaged around the top of…
Has anyone had issues with sending in the correct cardbacks for the K-Day Datsun 510 mail-in? I was going through my cardbacks last night to get 20 together to mail off and found that none of them match the “accepted” case codes listed in the rules for the mail-in. Even the ones that I got AT K-Day. For those of you…
They have arrived!
I have some thing you might be interested.
parts toys from Japan. And by overnight, I mean I ordered these like a month and a half ago. Not that I’m complaining though since they’re finally in my hands, lol.
First off I want to thank everyone who provided insight and knowledge in my earlier thread. I really appreciate it. I have decided to go with the most logical and responsible route and just get new tires for the current wheels. So now comes my final decision: which tires to get.
EDIT: Yes, I know the tire looks like shit and should have been replaced a while ago. I’m an idiot. In my defense, I did take it to a Ford dealership for an oil change and inspection a month or two ago and was told by the Ford tech that the tires may look a little rough but that they were just fine and did not need to…
I just had this idea pop into my head and this was the only way I could draw it up real quick before forgetting. It’s not exactly how I want it so let me explain:
Here’s my first one that I’ve come up with. I took some inspiration from Doug Demuro’s book title, lol. I couldn’t find a font that looked exactly how I wanted it, but this is close enough to convey the idea. I want the front to look like one of those Nike shirts that have just the block text on the front, and…
This tool is awesome.
Here’s my daughter’s Porsche collection! Happy Birthday Philip!!!
More fun with the jeweler’s saw!
Finally got to try out the jeweler’s saw I got for Christmas. And it’s awesome! This is just the start of this WIP. I cut the top off using the jeweler’s saw and then smoothed things out to blend with the rest of the body using my Dremel. Also swapped on some wheels from the Magnus Walker 934 that were redone with…
These were in the section for all of the Easter toys. They’really $4.99 each though, so I left them. I feel weird paying that much for a full size Hot Wheels, so I definitely wasn’t buying a meh quality Micro Machine sized version. But I figured I’d post this up in case anyone was really interested.
Here’s my K-Day HAWL:
Just in case you all had forgotten, or somehow hand’t heard the news, tomorrow is the first K-Mart Hot Wheels Collector’s Day (K-Day) event of 2017, and a good way to get the 20 cards needed for the Datsun 510 mail-in!
While the Real Riders off the Ranchero from the CC Trucks series look great on the Fairlane, the rears are just a smidge too meaty to tuck in. Maybe a base modification is in order here since I really like how this combo looks.
