332/365 – I think I snatched this car from the pegs at the gift shop of Sonoma Speedway in California. I love race cars, and the history of stock car racing is pretty fascinating (and I still don’t understand why we can make our own beer, but not liquor). For our road trip to Texas, I grabbed a few cars to keep the daily photo going while on our trip, figuring it would be nice to have some new backdrops. Today’s picture came out perfect in the new setting. A nice sandy patch reminded me of what a shine runner might encounter for road conditions way back when. And it was well known that Junior Johnson (his name on the roof of this car) would run shine after a race. So I thought this pic came together perfectly in the spirit I intended. I hope you like it too, and enjoy the rest of your holiday weekend.
329/365 – This 100% Hot Wheels VW Microbus was an awesome RAOK on K-Day from one of the Colorado Hot Wheels Mafia guys to my daughter. And this was after he had already given her his raffle ticket when his number was called right after his son’s. We have some classy people in this hobby, and I am happy to know some of them.
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.
