He’s going the distance. He’s going for speed.
The first production Corvette rolled off the assembly line in Flint on this day in 1953. Too bad I don’t have a factory diorama.
Time really does fly much too fast.
Sure it’s seen sunnier (and less dusty) days but this is a real gem here.
I never liked the C4 Corvette growing up. It didn’t have the flair of the C3 or later the modern look of the C5. It fell somewhere between the era’s boxy American sedans and wedge-y European sports cars.
Wow. Just wow. Can Hot Wheels get Gas Monkey Garage to design more cars? Let me rephrase that... Can Gas Monkey Garage just be put in charge of Hot Wheels’ paint choices?
At Texas A&M they say anything done twice is a tradition. I guess if you have two related diecasts, then you’ve got a collection.
I carefully cut the 69 Corvette Racer from its beautiful card because it deserved to be free.
I signed up for the Chevy Truck Legends program in September and I was supposed to receive a hat and decal in 6-8 weeks. 3+ months later I got this instead. I’ll take it.
I know the revived Auto World brand was a relatively small one (smaller than even Greenlight, I believe), but has it fallen victim to Round 2's resurrection of the Johnny Lightning brand?
Since 2 years in Formula Oppo, it was been my dream, my ‘one thing’ to become Formula Oppo Champion. Through the hard work, the pain, the sacrifices, this has been my target. And now I’ve made it.
So is it a 1969 Corvette cast with the roof lobbed off? Not exactly — though not far off. It’s more based on the 1969 COPO Corvette cast but even then it has enough differences to make it stand on its own.
I’m not a fan of the Corvette Stingray cast Hot Wheels launched in 1976. With no hood or door cutouts and muted styling curves, it looks like it was based on a distant photo of the C3’s rubber-bumper refresh.
But it was just so striking in Zamac form.
I don’t always buy fantasy or character cars, but when I do, they’re for a much-loved supporting character who had more style than substance.
Was stunned last week to see the entire Gran Turismo premium series hanging on the pegs at my Walmart. At $6 per it was an easy choice not to grab all of them, so I went with the one I’ve been waiting for since the series was announced.
For the first time in a long time I was able to check out a store other than the Walmart around the block. No Corvettes, but I’d call it a success.
They ripped the engines out of two Corvettes and put them on a spinning pedestal. Oh, and one of them is upside down.
I don’t know if you knew this, but I’m part of a pretty exclusive club. It’s so exclusive that I was able to join even though I don’t drive my pickup anymore.
