Sponsor Pro-Models has a new arrival
to announce. Pictured above is a 1:18 scale die-cast '06 Camaro
Concept car. Look familiar? It sure looks a lot like Bumblebee
from the Tranformers movie. Visit
Pro-Models today while supplies last!

Here is the first 1:18 scale
submission of spooky cars. Fabiano Spinelli of the website
me this awesome photo of The Car and Christine.
10/22/07 - Elvira's
All this talk about spooky cars got me
searching through my collection for Elvira's Macabre Mobile. I
couldn't find it, so I picked up one on eBay for a steal. Check out
the spider web grill. No spooky car list would be complete without it.
I added new pics to the Elvira gallery.
10/17/07 - Today's Finds
Popping into a local Toys R Us, I
spotted Johnny Lightning's latest release of cars from Speed Racer,
or at least, I spotted five of the six. I didn't see the Mach 5.
This is the first time I've seen these cars at retail. The above
photos have been added to the Speed Racer
10/16/07 - The Race is On!
Carlos Salinas sent me the above pic
showing the Target-exclusive Dinoco 400 set. Holy moly! This set
includes seven Piston Cup Racers, three of which are brand new to die-cast
form. This is a must-have. Thanks Carlos!
10/15/07 - More Spooky
Metro Privratsky sent me the above pic.
He stumbled across this little bat just hanging around and posed his
Batmobile next to it, of course. Below, Tim Hoye shows off his
Munsters Koach in an awesome acrylic display case. Thanks for the pics
guys. Keep them coming.
10/13/07 - Spooky!
October, more specifically, Halloween
has always been my favorite time of the year. I'm finding myself
listening to Halloween songs in my car and watching spooky movies, the
spookier, the better. I decided to pull out the camera and have some
fun with some of the "spooky" cars in my collection. If you have some
spooky cars in your collection, take some creative photos and send them in.
I'll post them right here up through Halloween. What a better day to
start than the 13th???
10/9/07 - A Few Halloween
There's not a whole lot of news to
report lately, however, stopping into a local Target I discovered all three
Halloween Edition Cars: Cruisin' McQueen, Ramone and Doc Hudson
were in the Halloween section of the store. In the same area, I also
found this spooky 5-pack of Hot Wheels (below.) I know they're not TV
or movie related, but I thought they were cool nevertheless. Check out
the Plymouth Fury:
