757 iLLEST presents : WINTERFEST 2014

The 757 iLLEST crew threw down yet another well attended event. This simple “car meet” was more than that. The parking lot of 240 spots was filled bore the event swung into gear. The next overflow parking was also beginning to fill up by the time I showed up @ 12pm. The support was terrific and the quality of rides that came out were numerous. It was cool to see the amount of people that decided to come out in chilly temps and overcast weather. yet another cool event to attend with minimal bs and good times had by most.

Greenlight diecast pickups long overdue….

I have been REALLY off track with posting items the last few months. I have lost a good friend and a family member so I have been busy with other things. But now I am getting back on track so there will be several posts hitting this blog very soon!

Hot Wheels Delivery And Larrys, Wayne’s, and Phil’s Garage releases

The releases of Larry’s, Wayne’s, and Phil’s Garage Hot Wheel vehicles have been popping up at several retailers locally. I have been able to grab a few of the newest releases that have caught my eye. I think the coolest *NEW* release to me is of the School Busted vehicle. That is very reminiscent of a California Show vehicle I had seen pictures of on the net. And of course the paint/tampo work on the fish’d and chip’d is nicely done. And of course the Dairy Delivery is and has been one of my most favorite castings to date.

New Hot Wheel Pick Ups

Throughout my travels to different states and areas the last few weeks, I have been able to pick up some pretty new models from the Mattel Hot Wheels world. Wish some other lines would step up and start distributing some goods to my areas stores.

Motorcycle/VW Beetle Custom Trike

During our 4th of July fireworks waiting, we sat near a mini car show. I saw a custom VW trike roll across the street as I followed it and snapped a few flicks. I saw it come out unto the main street and turn into the parking lot where the car show was. I didn’t see where exactly it went but 15 minutes later the gent parked it within eye shot and I excused myself from the misses and spent a few minutes chatting with the owner and of course snapping up close pictures.

Mr. Ian Hoggard, not only has this great creation but also a white version with a longer front end and also is working on a canary yellow version in Ahoskie , North Carolina (where I get my ink work done ironically). Thanks to Mr. Hoggard for chit chatting with me and allowing me to take a few snaps.

The paint work and custom molding is beautiful. The love and craftsmanship on this custom is WONDERFUL!

Jada Toys NEW For $Ale rides

The newest Jada Toys For $ale series has surfaced in a Local store. The used/beat up appearance of these cars is so well done for almost all models so far. Or in a better word REALISTIC. I have had a few opportunities to hang out with the guys behind these toys from Jada and their work continues even with great losses of personnel in the last few years. The few that remain and the newer additions are still doing their thing!
