I had the opportunity to roll with a local guy to attend this event. It was well worth the drive! A++ ladies and gents handling the event! I look forward to catching more Tuner Evolution events this year!

The nice weather is quickly coming to an end here in Virginia, so this Cars & Coffee meet in Virginia Beach was extremly full with nice rides, people and families! There were quite a few exotic rides out that I have never seen rolling around, but I am sure with their price tags they aren’t a daily driven ride.
The last few nights have been great for Hot Wheels scores as well as other lines which will show up later. But now is the incredible Hot Whels week I had. I guess all the HW night owls were sleeping….
Basic line stuff:
Short Card Nissan Skyline R32
New Color Datsun Bluebird 510
New Color Amazoom
I also got a couple of Treasure Hunts…All regular versions sadly…
and a few of these….
I came across some interesting Short Card hot Wheels the other day:
Had to get the GT-R in the short card. The shot card has chrome wheels where as the regular carded version has gunmetal-ish colored wheels.
And a nice little Treasure Hunt to round them out
Yet another cool Ebbro pick up on the inexpensive side. I am super happy to finally add this Honda NSX to my enormous Ebbro Family.
I finally got my HUGE Hong Kong box in after 2 months of waiting and received a bunch of goodies! Here are the kick ass choro Q’s I was waiting for:
I just received this model as it was very recently released, and this model holds a VERY significant meaning to me! Rewind to 2005 SEMA show in Las Vegas, Nevada. I flew out to SEMA as a guest of DUB Magazine to enjoy the show and party like a rock star. Being deeply involved with alot of the diecast heads I was able to get passes for myself and a friend to get into SEMA. I was barely tinkering in the JGTC diecast, but shortly after finding this car I was HOOKED.
Now after molesting this car at SEMA and having a diecast released of it, I had to snap it up. Its a very cool feeling to have seen the ACTUAL car that a model is created after even 3 years later! Auto Art as usual executed perfectly and created another hit!
After seeing some cool Pixar CARS diecast this morning I cruised by the Hot Wheels pegs and a few rides stood out to me.
This Honda/Acura NSX modded up like the Super GT car is GREAT except for the STUPID wheel choice. I think they should have put wheels like the FTE’s in the next picture on the Custom van.
’77 Custom Van
I LOVE this van for somereason! And the color combo with the paint and graphics and the FTE’s are SWEET!
And this DTM car named the Amazoom is modded after a DTM car. Can’t tell if it is the Mercedes or Ford racer, but its sleek!
And found this stupid green striped thing. Treasure Hunt Ford Mustang GT
Auto Art is feverishly releasing some very nice Super GT cars at a very quick rate. But I am in now way complaining. After waiting several months for a whif of a release, 3 have dropped in less than 3 months, VERY GOOD for me! I am anxiously awaiting the next 3 to drop! here are some shots of this beauty up close!
