Hot Wheels Collectors Resourses

If you’re just getting into Hot Wheels collecting like me, you may get overwhelmed with all the variety out there, available at different price points… or frustration of not being able to find any of the cool stuff you see people brag about online. I’d like to share some resourses I’ve come across in my […]

Hot Wheels: From Hobby to Obsession

I think it’s time to pump the brakes on this hobby a little. Since I started to obsess over this idea a month ago I think I’m about $200 bux all in already, because I keep sweeping my local supermarkets of the models I want. And it’s a good time for a reality check. The […]

Hot Wheels Mission Accomplished!

…mission accomplished! (sort of) After a few days of obsessive compulsive behavior. Two supermarket visits and a trip to Wal-Mart dropping $50 bux on toys, my collection is off to a good start! I cleaned out my local ACME grocery store of their white Mad Mike Miatas that I mentioned in a previous post. And […]

Hot Wheels Race Cars Collection

Cars & Coffee at Jack Daniels Porsche in Upper Saddle River, NJ Nov 2017

A cozy pre-Thanksgiving event at Jack Danieles Porsche dealer in Upper Saddle River, NJ While it was in the 50’s the weather felt much cooler with strong winds so maybe that’s why the turnout was fairly low around 10am… but there were amazing cars there. Check them out: My favorite car on display this weekend… […]

Porsche 962 at the HSR Classic 24h of Daytona

The one car that sold me on the HSR Classic 24h of Daytona was the Tic Tac livery Porsche 962 1980’s era Group C car. I had just gotten a really close look at the Rothmans livery Porsche 962 a month earlier at the Bruce Canepa museum in California while volunteering at Laguna Seca, and […]
