Sweet! Micro Machines was my original toy car passion. Before I got my first Hot Wheels and Matchbox cars, I got a ton of Micro Machines, a few playsets, and the big toolbox city. I don’t have that many left these days, I guess I lost quite a few at school, friends’ houses, grocery stores and parks when I was little, Read more

Sweet, I wish I’d had the time to get inro a project, or even finish fixing up my old Fiat, but unfortunately even that one ended up parked... Premium gas peaked at almost 7 bucks per litre here, so driving it became cost proihibitive hahahahaha. I've been meaning to check out on Oppon since forever hahahaha, will do Read more

Obviously, how do you think he went about all that conquering? On horseback?

Yup, it’s been about what, ten years or so lol :) I’ve been keeping busy, these last ten years were a ride. Long story short, I got into Med school, graduated Med school, joined the Brazilian Army, became a surgeon, got married, went on a tour of duty and several local peacekeeping operations, entered a twice a week Read more

Sorry, but someone who claims the BMW X5 was the first SUV can’t be that knowledgeable... Chevrolet launched the Blazer in 1069, that’s arguably the forst SUV as we know them today, and even if it weren’t, there are several other options earlier than the X5 that could claim that title, in both full size and compact Read more

I’ve owned one of these for a while way back when. Well, the old one, based on the Corsa, not the current Agile based one. You’d be surprised as to just how cheap it was, mine didn’t even have A/C or power windows. On the flip side, you could flog it mercilessly on all kinds of dirt, sand and gravel roads, it was Read more

God, I hate these fucking things. There’s a rental spot uphill of my home, and it’s like everytime I walk or drive out, there’s bound to be some poor, yet idiotic, meatbag careening downhill, barely able to keep a straight line, eyes wide in shock and limbs frozen in terror at all the street clutter they just managed Read more

So? Tap water isn’t safe where I live either. In fact, I’d guess tap water is unsafe to drink in most of the world. That’s only newsworthy because you don’t have real issues to worry about

Is it too much to hope that they’re conducting live ammo trainings for their suicide sub crews?

I wish we had those down here in Brazil. They don’t seem to take up much room, and it’s a much better alternative to heaing water for coffee and meals than the archaic disposable stove we have.

That’s actually pretty incredible. But for that Money you could’ve bought (probably more than) a real one

The Neon is a great little car, I’ve always liked for what it is, and, if you think about, it could be the solution to the whole “millennials don’t like cars” BS, not because of what it is, but because young people could actually afford it. Read more

Yeah, makes sense, though it never stops at one, does it?

Aww shucks :/ I’m trying to limit myself to a more mundane level of detail, something like Hot Wheels but with trim, so I's steer clear.of the pricier stuff, but damn did I want a truck to go with my collection

You mean the Chevelles? Or they’re actually coming out with new Toolings for the Nova?

Nice. Love Novas, though I wish Hot Wheels would come out with a new casting for the 68-72 model years. The current one is a little off and a little long in the tooth :p

Sweet, is that wrecker from MBX’s Real Working Rigs line or DCP? I’ve been wanting to pick up a few trucks, but the RWR seem a little too small and DCP seems a little too expensive ahahaha

BTW Torch, I think I got an interesting bit of Brazilian weirdness for you. Everyday on my way to work, I drive by an old Auto Union-DKW dealership, complete with a model filled showroom. I heard it still works servicing and repairing old two stroke DKWs as well, but I never went to check because I pass it out of Read more
