The finest group of Hot Wheels I’ve seen this year. If you’re into 1:64 scale stuff, you should not miss this set.
One of Sharka’s 4-wheeled buddies gets a pair of custom vintage Honda badges.

This one is a comic book review of the Transformers MTMTE ongoing series. I know, a comic review on a car blog. WTF am I thinking? Seriously, the book is that good.
I’ve been asked a few times “What does robot cut mean?” in reference to my gauges. And, for the first time, I’m lifting the curtain and showing how it’s done.
I’ve backspaced over the first sentence a dozen times. I’ve got no idea what to say that won’t sound like an insane person gushing over his car and daughter. I’m just ever so proud, you guys. EVER. SO. PROUD!
My little girl got to ride in Sharka for the first time. And SHE LOVED IT!!!

I have a confession to make. I’ve not played with a Hot Wheels car since I was in the single digit age range. After childhood, I just never went back to them. And, to be perfectly honest, they were never my favorite toys. That slot was reserved for my beloved Transformers.
But I think that’s because my childhood Hot Wheels never looked like THIS!

I got a new toy. Er, new toys plural. And then I spent two days transforming it and taking photos. No Miata content, just gorgeous Japanese plastic.
My family has a new member. And for the first time, she doesn’t have four wheels or four feet. I’m beyond proud to show off my new baby girl here on my blog. And her room!

About a week ago, a couple buddies contacted me about a trip to Albuquerque’s abandoned AT&SF railyard. I’d not been to the railyard all year. The movie industry has been filming in there almost constantly all summer. But things seem to settle down a bit in the fall, so we took a chance and got together a half hour before sunrise, cameras in hand.

Sharka stayed in the garage today. Instead I took out my newest car – an Audi Quattro WRC. It gets incredible mileage. If only it had a bit more room…
