Although we have seen several nights in a row well below
zero here in VT, nothing like the -83 below zero recorded on Mt. Washington Tuesday night. Now that's cold!
Oodles of new 1:43 this week, and a little something for
everyone. Street and racing, past and present. Check
out the latest and order early to avoid missing out on
some of the latest from Spark.
New 1:18 this week from Mattel, Autoart, Minichmps,
Auto World, and Acme. If old LeMans cars are your
thing, make sure you check out this very affordable
BMW 328 from Autoart.
Do you collect the 1:12 Minichamps street bikes. Then
check out this beautiful 1968 BSA Rocket III. These are
the top of the line for two wheelers, and you know I'm a
sucker for anything with two wheels. And that exhaust.....
Those of you in the south and out west, can you please
send us some warmth and sunshine? Heat wave headed
our way next week, we will see some 40's. Get those
beach chairs and umbrellas out.
Good weekend to all.
Minichamps 1:12 Marco Simoncelli bike is arriving any day,
get your orders in pronto. This one won't last long, already
sold out from Minichamps.
You guys down south and out west,
can you send us some
warmth and sunshine? It's Brrrrrr degrees
in VT this week.
Here's a few shots from the NYC bike show that I
hit up this past weekend. It was way over the top but
extremely crowded. We didn't get to see half of it
due to the crazy amount of bike heads like me that
showed up to see the latest greatest and the incredible
customs. It's the SEMA of the bike world.
The biggest rear tire I have ever seen on a motorcycle.
We have had this question asked a lot: Why are we
reproducing the 1973 STP Eagle Gordon Johncock
Indy winner? Some how the original Carousel 1 release
was produced in the wrong color. Here's a comparison
of the original C1 release and our sample of team mate
Swede Savage. These cars should both be the same color.
New 1:43 this week from Ebbro including this sweet little Sigma MC73 LeMans version. We also received an IXO
shipment late today, so the new 1:43 category will be updated
That's it, I'm out.
Here comes the weekend!
