Time flies when you're having fun huh?
OK, a few books of interest this week. Of course
you know the buzz in the Moto GP world is all about
Valentino Rossi making the jump to Ducati next year.
I don't read many books, but this one is on my list.
I'm going out on a limb here: Rossi is the Dale
Earnhardt of Moto GP: You either love him
or hate him.......fair analogy?
Another book that looks like some good reading material
Anything with a picture of King Kenny Roberts on
the cover gets my attention.......
New CMC 2010 catalog
We've been waiting a while for this one. Awesome
photos, detailed info and piece counts for all current
In 1:43, 1992 McLaren MP4/5B. Special Senninha packaging.
We only have about 10 pieces left after filling all the pre-orders.
All of the Senninha editions are very limited.
Ford GT race versions are starting to arrive. These are
impressive, impeccable paint and decoration. Don't snooze
Premium Classixxs 1:43
BMW Racing Transporter. PC is making some great
trucks. These look awesome when displayed with BMW
New wave of HPI including the 1998 and 1999 Toyota
GT1 versions. Unlike most of their endurance models,
these are sealed body design so no opening features.
Also in this batch are the Ford GT concept and street
versions. These are pricey but look incredible.
Clicking on the image will bring you to the new 1:43 category
for this week.
That's about it for today......
Planning to work tomorrow but it's supposed to be gorgeous
weather....Hmmmm, have to see how that pans out? Work or
ride the Ducati? Will keep ya posted.
Have a good weekend!

40's at night and low 70's during the day means one thing:
The seasons are about to change again. End of story.
If I had to choose one season/climate, it would
definitely be fall. With that said, I'm heading out for
a little spin on the this old girl.

(post vacation depression disorder)
Slowly but surely gettin' back into the groove.
Today is knee surgery. All those years of running
injury free have finally caught up with me I guess. The
Doc tells me I'll be back at it in 3-4 weeks. Do you think
they would allow me to do a blog post from the O.R.?
OK, from last week we have a few interesting arrivals.
First, new 1:18 announcement from Autoart
This is the 1964 Lotus MK1 as driven by the legendary
Jim Clark. Should arrive sometime in September. Thanks
Don for the info on this one!
Black is in.........
VW Microbus in matte black
New from Spark
New LaStoria release
New batch of LeMans by IXO
OK, I will be out of commission for a few days but will be back at ya

For another 4 hours and 4 minutes.....so I can continue to post personal/leisure topics. I get constant requests about the DUC so instead of posting a bunch of pictures I figured a video would be so much easier. It was.......
It's true what they say, Ducati's are for those who can't afford a Ferrari. If you aren't a biker then this video won't appeal to you. Skip it. If you are, you know the sickness......enjoy!
business related until Monday. Plus, I don't even know what
came in new this past week. For the first time in I don't know
how long, I totally un-plugged from the biz for an entire week.
Nobody called me, no emergencies at the office. So I owe my
staff a great big thank you for allowing me some worry free
time away from it. Any of you that are small business owners
know what I'm talking about.
We had incredible weather the whole week, we were right on
the water in near by Lake George, NY. We also had the use of
a boat all week so we made good use of that.
Being an early riser, I was out on the water several of
the days while it was still dark out. Early enough to catch
a few awesome shots of the sunrise.
This is looking east back at Vermont.
say I was an avid fisherman. I had the bass boat,
I was fishing tournaments and that whole gig. I
haven't dropped a line in the water in over ten years.
Beginner luck or do I still have it? I'll go with pure luck.
