Christmas Eve

Wonder how things would have been for me if it wasn't for this..
I may have been a architect ?
The Beatnik Bandit was my favorite from
the original 16 Hot Wheels

Frames Ahoy collage

I made a collage of the frames I shipped out in 2014
Missed a couple pictures over the year. But got a snap shot of most of them
I shipped out about 60 frames this year. (haven't done a official count-just by my posts)
Pretty darn good I'd say. 2015 I want to ship over 100 !  Keeping reading my blog...surprises ahead.
(copy the collage if you want- I don't mind)

Click on it,it should fill the screen

Sal's 1938 truck, done and gone

Search "Sal" in the little box in the upper left corner.. see it?
A brief history of his truck to scroll thru
Well, local show it got first place.
And 93 miles later, he sold it to a fellow from NYC. 
Off it goes. Sal is planning on A Model A coupe build next..

Minnesota coupe update

Adam got the chassis package from us this summer.
Steady progress on the 1929 coupe.
6" chop as I remember..1931 visor nice touch.
And it looks like a 3" channel ? 
Got some Firestone cheater slicks.  Keep up the good work buddy ! !
Be sure to send pictures when it's rolling on all 4
mocking up grill to get correct sizing

the slicks are causing the coupe to wheelie !

tea time in Ohio

Joe got his frame for the T coupe he's building. Received this email yesterday.

The frame arrived today and I can't tell you how happy I am. It is beyond expectations. Great craftsmanship and everything is exactly what I wanted. You told me it would ship the week of the 8th but it arrived on the 8th! 8 working days including delivery to Ohio is unbelievable. I really appreciate your help and suggestions when I called. I have no idea why someone would try to build this for the price you charge. I will be calling to order parts.
