Hot Wheels has a much overlooked 944?   I need to look.

BTW, needs Fuchs.

Yeah, 944 turbo! There is a stethoscope on the rear parcel shed which is an homage to the doctor of the HW designer when he had cancer who drove a 944. Pretty cool.
 

Also, I have a spare Magnus Walker 356 speedster so those wheels are sitting on my bench.

....I tried to get Hot Wheels to sell me these in bulk when they were first released, but they're not really cool with that sort of thing usually.

They actually are, it's a LOT of them though. Have you approached them with a brand tie-in? That would be really awesome.

I tried but I was not able to make it past the gatekeepers. Best I could arrange was an application to resell. A lot is plausible, I wouldn't be looking for just a dozen or two. Got any contacts?

I'm not sure modifying 72 Hot Wheels is really the best use of my time!

Isn't that kind of stuff why we have "new guy"/interns?  laugh

Who has interns? Boy, you guys are heavily overestimating the unused capacity at Flyin' Miata...

Had a strangely normal dream where I was at some kind of collectibles swap meet and I bought a 1/64 Chevy truck for $9.

Dreams don't often come that cheap, so I decided to go for it and stopped by the hobby store after work.

Not exactly the same but good enough, and the price was right.

Might have had something to do with digging up some packaged cars to hang on the wall while I arranged my work space yesterday. Looks like I'll be adding one more.

Creepy!

I like the fact that your new truck is licensed by Ram, GM and Ford.

So with the race this Saturday, will they allow walk in entries? I would hate to go all the way there and not be able to enter?  From what Google says thisis about an hour north of me

To be honest I hadn't thought about that.  I sure hope so.

How rare are those Nissan premium dioramas? I've got 2 in front of me  at $25 a peice. Worth grabbing on speculation?

Thanks for the heads up. Just wondering if it was future BRE Datsun insanity in the making.. 

 

Anyone need a spare?

I guess it could be, those BRE hung at all the kmarts around here. I kept buying them as I saw them and I customized three or four lol. The typical collector wasn't looking for jdm at that point.

How come the Ford Galaxie trailer set is unobtainium in stores near me? Did they recall them due to the tampo error?

I'm not paying ebay prices for it.

I just saw one yesterday but didn't pick it up because I have it already. I can stop and see if it's still there.

It was one per case also, so there are fewer of them to go around

Reading the Facebook page for the race it does not say anything about needing to pre register.
