Might as well jump on the Mooneyes bandwagon with my Moon custom chop-top 356 and Chevy truck.
Just happened to stop in a TRU. Glad I did! Found this Viper right on the front of the peg!
I was at Michael’s craft store last week, looking for paint. I happen to notice that their shadow boxes were on sale for 50% off.
For Teutonic Tuesday I present my BMW E30 M3 two door wagon!
Glad to see this one done!! Stay tuned tomorrow! Same LaLD time, same LaLD station!
With little time to customize, I have a couple of cars I’ve been working on.
As some of you know, I recently took a promotion at work. The promotion will require a lot of schooling. That, plus the 40 + hour work week, caring for my mother, and the new baby will seriously limit my time for customizing.
Recently my friend Charlie bought some 2000's era F1 cars for the Formula D racing board game.
Recently a friend gave me a few cars he had laying around. In the bunch was this eye burning bright neon orange Miata. My question, other than the color choices, is about the wheels.
Happy Easter LaLD!

UPDATED!! Once again the LaLD community comes through!! Thank you Plasticprints and R32rennsport!
I’ve gone to a few of estate sales and never really saw anything I wanted. Rusty, neglected tools, musty old books. I did see an MGA in rough shape that I considered, but in retrospect I’m glad I passed. But I never see Hot Wheels to this extent. A few here and there, maybe some NASCAR diecasts or old tractors, but…
Months ago I began a quest. It was an ill advised and misguided quest, but a quest nonetheless. I have decided to collect (at least) one of every paint variation of the Hot Wheels ‘77 Plymouth Arrow Funny Car casting.
In the late 1980’s, Nissan wanted to be more competitive in the upper echelon of sports car racing, the GT1 class. To develop the new car, Nissan turned to the English company of Tom Walkinshaw Racing. TWR had a long, successful history in racing, having designed and built winning cars for Jaguar and Aston Martin,…
I got to spend the afternoon with a friend I don’t see nearly enough.
Happy Saint Patrick’s Day LaLD’ers!!
