69 Corvette Super Treasure Hunt

326/365- I had the good fortune of taking a Corvette like this to my Senior Prom. Trouble was, it snowed (as it often does in the mountains of Colorado during the Spring). I can attest to the fact that a Corvette, as beautiful as it is, handles like crap in the snow.

Off Track

325/365 – When I saw this Hot Wheels Treasure Hunt at my local Kroger affiliate the other night, I immediately knew what kind of picture I wanted to do. So last night my lovely daughter and I set up the track, the camera, and the tripod, then started experimenting. We shot a LOT of pictures, trying to get things dialed in. This was one of the better ones, and really close to what I was envisioning for the Off Track. Hope you like it.

Ultra Hots 50s Chevy Truck

323/365 – No clue how I came across this truck. I think it was in a box of Hot Wheels our daughter found at my mom’s house. It seems to fit in well with the old playset I found at a thrift store for $2.50 though…

Comic-Con Custom 71 El Camino

321/365 – Most cars from the San Diego Comic-Con are expensive in the secondary market. Like absurdly expensive. Take the 2014 Hot Wheels Darth Vader car. It retailed for $40 at the show, but on eBay it is fetching over $150. 2014 cars themed for James Bond or The Simpsons are also commanding big money. Part of that is because those brands have a following all their own, kind of like Coca-Cola. Some people just have to own every Star Wars thing out there. Fortunately for me, the same was not true with this Custom El Camino. I think this car is just as pretty as my RLC Kombi, though Real Riders would have been a nice touch. But I was able to get this car for about $10 on eBay. Yep, $10 for a Comic-Con car. Heck, even the USS Enterprise, Comic-Con edition, can be had for $20 at hotwheelscollectors.com. So don’t get discouraged by the prices on the high profile items. If you have a casting you like (and I love this El Camino, I have all 3 versions now), keep an eye out, you might be able to get a premium version on the cheap.

Jeep CJ-7 Treasure Hunt

320/365 – I never did take my Jeep into the mountains when there was a ton of snow on the ground. I often wish I had, I may have gotten a real life pic like this.

Road Roller

319/365 – This Road Roller (which also came with the Bone Shaker you see peeking out of the trailer) was a generous RAOK from one of my fellow Colorado Hot Wheels Mafia members. No, that’s not our real name – yet.

318/365 – Not the best day to be out and about topless.

And Happy Birthday to my beautiful wife.
