Help Wanted

Big thank you to all that placed orders during the weekend sale.

GP of America

Great article, F1 is coming to NYC in June 2013.
I'm in, who's going? Tentative date is the week right after Montreal. Guess it's going to be back to back F1 weekends huh?
Thanks to Colin V. for the link.
Good weekend to all.

Stoner to retire.....

Just caught this on
The 2011 World Champion made some interesting comments.
I'm sure there will be more, stay tuned.

Nice surprise

From our good friend and long time customer Bryce R. up in Canada. Cool little added benefit of getting edition #126 of this beautiful BBR 1:43. OK, so who got #27? Thursdays are good. MF

Not quite what Williams had in mind....

After winning their first F1 race since 2004.
The dangers in F1 loom large, even these kinds of mishaps.

Carroll Shelby RIP

I was away all weekend so didn't have a chance to post this Friday. No sales on Shelby models like some companies that I won't mention. Just a shout out to quite possibly the most influential American "Car Guy" of all time. The automotive industry has lost a true icon. MF

I can smell the weekend festivities. Off to Syracuse tomorrow, the eldest daughter is graduating from 'Cuse. Does that officially make me an old bastard? LOL

Enjoy your Thursday!

Another shout out for Gilles

Son Jacques drives the 312T4 to honor his father.

RIP Gilles...........

No words needed:

Fact or just a ploy?

Rossi to retire at the end of 2012?
Is he making the move to cars? Hmmmm...... MF

Oldie but goldie

Keep in mind this short flick is almost 40 years old. Some great film work considering the equipment back then was stone age compared to what we have today. Big thanks to Jim K. for the link. I can smell the weekend. MF

Project car anyone?

Big project at that.
Happy Wednesday!
