Perfect timing......



It finally slowed down for the first time in about
6 weeks. It's been a crazy run and hats off to my
staff for weathering several storms. A big thank
you for all the holiday orders. We appreciate the
biz! So with that said, hopefully I can resume my
daily posts.

Heads up: We are closed from Dec. 23 to January 2.
We do this every year to rest up the troops and allow
them to spend some time with friends and family.
Our office party is tomorrow afternoon if you can make it?

Hey Guys,
This week was a blur. We survived the onslaught
of orders from the sale last weekend. Big thank
you to all. We appreciate the biz!

Now throw in all the pre-orders for the CMC
Transporter and the Dan Wheldon Indy winner.
Let's just say we been jammin'

Happy to report as of 7:00pm ever single order
has been shipped. In order for this to happen,
our Santa work started early this year. I had to
drive two orders to the local UPS hub and one
to the USPS. That's how we roll at Replicarz........
We go the extra mile, no pun intended.

Speaking of the CMC Transporter:
We have a few left after filling the pre-orders.
Second shipment coming in a few weeks. Click
here to see all the great shots we have
on the site. Expensive yes, but it's all there!

OK, lots of new 1:43 this week.
1960 Cooper T53 Sir Jack Brabham World Champion
by Spark. This one will evaporate. Good stock right
now but that won't last, the orders are rolling in for this
one. See it here

Other new Spark include 2011 LeMans versions,
McLaren 2011 F1, and some other great classic GP
cars. Click here to go to the new 1:43 category
for this week. Also new TSM and Minichamps.

OK, it's time for this cat to call it a day. I'm in tomorrow.
Drop me a line. Or hit me up on the live chat via the site.
Yeah that's me......
Good weekend to all.

Autoart '91 LeMans Winner


The die cast gods have shined upon us.
After 4 long years, Autoart is finally reproducing
this incredible model. Upgrades have been done

I won't be surprised to see this one sell out
quickly. (again)

Very rare Honda


Courtesy of Throttle yard, see the extensive listing
and details on Craigslist:
http://seattle.craigslist.org/see/mcd/2674518827.html

If I had the dough, I would buy this for brother Brian. His
birthday is this week and he's a V4 man from way back.
If you collect 1:1 bikes, this is a rare one to have in the
collection. Just a little pricey that's all.
Aloha from snowy VT.........in October.

TGIF..........


Final sample of the Brawner Hawk. We hammered out a
deal with Firestone, so we're finally able to show a sample
with the markings on the tires. We should be shipping in
early December. The very first Replicarz Exclusive.
The first of many I can assure you.........
Stay tuned!
A good weekend to all.

Speaking of snow.........


We got about 3 inches yesterday, and with temps down in
the 20's last night the ground is covered and it's looking
a lot like winter. Nearby Killington Ski area is wasting no
time. The guns are going around the clock and it's looking
like Monday is opening day. Heads up: I will be a little late

Good stuff for those of us that live on the east coast. Anybody
remember the CART Indy car races at the Meadowlands?
Those were the days......
From the sounds of it the track may be located around the same
area. And preliminary statements from King Ecclestone say the
NJ race would run the weekend after Montreal. Now that sounds
like a nice way to kill a week in June. Back to back F1 races?
