Different strokes......

Many of you know I have a soft spot in my heart for
2 stroke motorcycles. The 2 stroke extravaganza was
held this past weekend in California. Some great shots:

They are talking about having an east coast show next year......
We can only hope!

Here's a way....

To beat rush hour traffic.....

Can you say crazy?
No regard for life?
Experienced risk taker?

call me slacker.....

Quick recap of the past week. I was supposed to work last
Saturday remember? Well, the wife talked me into a day trip
on the bike to Stowe for the British Invasion car show.

Had I known the magnitude, I would have been up there all
weekend. Absolutely incredible cars all over the area. Every
make and model you can think of was there. From Triumph
to Healy's, Lotus to Caterham Super 7's. Also a lot of British
bikes too. Wish I had taken more pix.

The wife admiring yet another beautiful little British car
cruising by. This is at the peak of Mt. Mansfield.

Sunday I was going to work.........

Ended up playing a round at golf at Green Mt. National.
I hate when that happens! As you can see, the leaves
are definitely changing colors. Tiz the season.....

I did work Monday and Tuesday, but Wednesday I played
hooky and did a track day at NH Speedway on the Ducati.

Me and my bud Ken getting ready to head out for another
session. BTW, the red head loves to be ridden hard!

Sixty guys chompin' at the bit to hit the track.....
Hats off to the crew at Seacoast Sport Cycle for putting
on a 1st class show. They fed us, they had instructors on
hand to give us tips, and they waited on us hand and foot
all day long. The best 200 bux I've spent in a long, long time.
I did road race bikes in my previous life, the bug has bit me
Already signed up for another track day Oct. 6.......
Hoping to shoot some on board video next time out.
Will keep ya posted!

In the meantime, here's a few vids.....

Danica in her spare time........
Have a good one!

Time flies huh.....

Well, the last week or so has been a blur. I got both daughters off
to college (yes I'm broke) and the house is a lot quiter these days
to say the least. Finally getting back into the groove.
Let's get to some of the latest arrivals we've received in the last week
or so.

Lots of new stuff for the 1:18 crowd.

Spark Model has aquired quite the following of faithful
collectors, all in a very short time. Even though these are
sealed body designs, they are exceptional and the subject
matter is very appealing. You can see the 3 we just got by
clicking the image.


Another Steve McQueen Porsche 908/2.
This one is the #66a as driven to the SCCA Championship
at Holtsville. Just plain good stuff for you Porsche buffs.

Rally anyone?

We received a few different versions of the Audi Quattro
Rally cars from the mid 80's. These have opening features
and well detailed engine and interior. These are the best
1:18 Rally cars on the market IMO.

1:18 Maisto Mercedes SLS AMG

You don't get much in this day and age for under $35.00 in the
1:18 scale world, but I have to say that Maisto has definitely
upped their game with some these latest M-B versions.


Minichamps 2009 Brawn Jenson Button Brazil GP
This is the final version of the Button World Champion car
that we will see. We have less than 10 remaining, so if you
haven't pulled the trigger on this one yet now is the time.

Spark 1:43 shipments are arriving weekly.

We got a slew of Grand Prix and LeMans models in this
week. Click the image to see all the latest/greatest.

And for those of you that like the out of the ordinary....

Bugatti Airplane, this one has been selling like hot cakes.
And I thought we didn't have plane collectors.....

1:43 Colibri Offshore Racing Boat

Another one that is almost sold out, very cool piece!
1:43 British Steam Land Speed Car
The LSC series continues to be one of the best selling
categories for Spark Model. All are very limited editions
so no snoozing please.....
Any slot guys out there? We just got in a mother load
from Carrera including a bunch cars and a few new track sets.
Click the image to see the new category for this week.

OK, that's it for now. The weekend is supposed to be some
beautiful fall weather, so that translated means Mark and the
Ducati will most likely see some miles of smiles.
Hope you all have a good one!
Till next time!
