Hot Wheels Video Racer

I got a Hot Wheels Video Racer a couple of days ago (A special Thanks to Stacey), so today I started playing with it and shot some video. If you don't know what it is, it's basically a usb drive and video camera in a Hot Wheel car. Here's a picture of it.

It's a pretty neat little gizmo, but I didn't have too much time to experiment with it. I just shot a few seconds of video with it but now I know what it would look like if you are in a Hot Wheel car driving on an orange track.  I will definitely do more in the future. In the meantime check it out.

Went to the Beach...

Howdy, folks!  I just spent last week on a beach near Galveston Texas and all I found when I took a break from the sand and surf was this Bendy Bus at a Target.  (Pictured here on a shelf at the house I stayed in.) It is a bus but it is sold in the Hot Wheels train packaging.  I thought it was a New York Subway train.  It didn't help with that misidentification since it was packaged backwards. Take a look when you see one in the wild. Enjoy.

Gonna keep it simple this post with a Hot Wheel offering from 1978.  The Science Friction.  So if you ever need a "Space Cop" this is what they drive.  In the future... of 1978. Um...

New Additions - Donation Lot

Howdy.  I just wanted to share with you some new additions I got in the mail yesterday.  An interesting mix of old and new.  Something from every decade I think.  These cars were donated to the "museum"  by my friend Mark (who has donated several times) in England.  He sells on Ebay and has a great rating, so check him out when your on Ebay.
