      There are a few accounts on Instagram with crazy modded Lego VW's. I'll see if I can dig any pics up.

      Matchbox has been killing it lately. I found their rerelease of the Lotus Europa last night.

      Living The Dream

      On the commute home yesterday I saw a Dodge Challenger, a deep sparkly blue, it was super shiny. It had huge blingtastic chrome wheels. It looked like a cool Hot Wheels car.

      It was sitting on the side of the highway (ha!) and it reminded me of how, when we get older, we build our toys of the past. Same thing with Bro Dozers, they're over the top impractical, but in the end represent the fun that got us hooked on autos.

      Getting the outdoor patio furniture out of the basement, I took a quick HW inventory. I need more totes.

      Back when my old Saab was still running, I had wedged an old Hot Wheels car underneath the inoperable tripmeter reset --- it was a '69 Silver Shadow which was once spectraflame blue, but I had played with it so much when I was little that almost all the paint was gone, as was the hood that was unhinged and missing. LOL
      Man, I really loved that thing!

      Old Hot Wheels that you grew up with are sorta special,
      even if they are thrashed out beyond belief.

      About a month ago I saw three Sennas at Target. I thought I already owned one but wasn't sure, so I didn't pick one up. Lesson learned, because I didn't have one, and now I can't find them anymore.

      I took inventory today and I’m down to about 18 unopened packs with only two doubles. I’ve been very generous with my son as rewards as well gifts for other kids. It feels good but it also feels weird, the little man still likes them but he is mostly about saving up for Legos and Nerf. All of the money lessons are paying off in the long run, it we buy far less cars. /sad dad

      Not a car but related.

      Just got this nearly 40 year old thing cleaned so my oldest could take it to "camp day" at school.

      Looks pretty good for a 40yr old sleeping bag.
      (Not a great pic though)

      Wow I remember those sleeping bags. I am pretty sure I used to have the Porsche shown on it too.

      I can't even get into my closet with what Hot Wheels I have in there. I give away a lot at work to kids. It is amazing how a .99 toy can bring a smile to a face!

      Part of my collection. You’ll have to zoom in to see if there is anything you find interesting.

      Looks like the inspiration for the Hoonicorn.

      Nice finds UncleJB. I don't usually look at Matchbox but looks like I need to start!

      Picked up this guy.




      Why does this GTI have Mopar wheels?




      I tried to use acetone to remove the tampo printing but it took paint with it. Had to repaint. Here's a progress shot with the wheel swap on the chassis.




      Et voila!




      Used a Sharpie pen to put some black in the lower bumper grilles.

      Its pretty cool to see all of the different car tastes everyone has.

      Also nice work on the Charger Sortafast. Are you going to paint on some headlights?

      Thanks! I'm not sure if my model skills are up to the task of something so small. I'll have to think about it.

      Yeah I hear you. I have kind of shaky hands so I'd probably make a mess. I know they have magnifying glasses for model painting that might help.
