In his short NASCAR career, Pete Hamilton made his mark, winning the 1967 Sportsman title (forerunner to the Xfinity series) and in 1968 was Grand National Rookie of the Year. In the short-lived Grand American Division (NASCAR's answer to Trans-Am), in 1969 he won 12 of 26 races but finished 2nd in the title race. 1970 he joined Petty Enterprises and debuted by winning the Daytona 500 in his #40 Plymouth Superbird. Then he swept both Talladega 500-milers. R.I.P., Pete.

Had the cast on my wrist taken off today just 1.5 weeks after I actually broke it! Surgery sped up the recovery process by at least 6 weeks. The damage is 18 screws and a plate that I will have permanently! Can't wait to get back into models now...

    And now you'll have the added bonus of having to provide documentation for every time you set off the alarms at airports ;-). Take care of yourself!

So, I got a nasty message from Paypal saying that I am almost to the point of Money Maundering because I have too many payments(actually two were refunds but the Azzhatsz counted that too).. Is this normal? Plus they are so freaking greedy and I am tired of their Lame A** services.. anyone else here in Europe or the rest of the world getting this message? Any Help Would Be Appreciated :)

Just finished watching all of the 12 Hours of Sebring. 7 GTLM cars on the lead lap after 12 hours, as usual. Fun!

    Yeah, not the greatest one. But with those accidents came a lot of improved safety requirements. Much like the passing of Dale Earnhardt in NASCAR.

    I was being sarcastic, MM. And I have more respect for their stepdad than I do for any of them - he/she accomplished more in his life than all of them put together.

I recently Sold the majority of my collection with only 6 remaining that I will keep. I've moved on from it, there was a few models I wanted but the prices are too high and I can't be bothered anymore.

    I make the same with my models, in the last 2 years sold almost all of my 1/18 cars. I just keep 8 cars that I really like and some 1/43. Agree with the prices and also the new trend of resin doesn't get me and more sealed cars makes no sense.

    Amen to that, bud. I plan to offload the vast majority of my 1:18s and even some 1:43s as I refocus. It's getting out of control - a small fortune if we want great diecast with opening parts, or settling for resin/"composite" if we want to save money. Unsustainable :(

    I'm not buying any resin models, I just don't like them. I've pretty much got all the great and good in diecast, so my 1/18 days are pretty much over

What do you think about the Minichamps 8C lungo die cast model, after visiting the alfa museo I am tempted in getting one!

    I read someone saying the wheels on the TSM were better. But the Minichamps is all opening sooo it's tough to choose

Anyone know what does Kyosho mean by " Reimport Ver." on some of its models, for example: http://dc.kyosho.com/en/kyo8164e0.html. Are these reimport variants different from standard one?

    I don't blame you for saying that, Sam. My poor dad had to shovel the driveway overnight. At least the storm's over.
