I stopped at Wally World on my way home from work tonight and picked up a couple really cool things. I bought:

1/24 scale Dub City Big Time Muscle '70 Mustang Boss 428, candy yellow w/flat black hood, rear window louvers, and spoiler. This thing is freakin hot. :cool:
1/42(ish???) Drop Stars '05 Mustang GTR Concept, dark red, 'bout like my 1/1 car.
1/25 scale AMT Ertl '53 Ford Flipnose model kit with the giant Whipple S/C through the hood. I'm hoping to get it finished before Thursday and maybe even mount it on my Mini Mauler. :D :D
and another Black & Decker $10 giant tool box for all the Duratrax crap; batteries, charger, radio, spare parts, etc.


A pretty good haul, I'd say. Oh and I picked up a few bags of Gold Fish crackers, but they won't be coming to the races - they'll all be dead by then. ;)

Bring it fancy pants. :p Hopefully I'll have it finished by Thursday. I'm going to paint it metal flake Ford Racing blue. I cut and pre-assembled the entire engine, undercarriage, and main body panels last night. Now I have to paint and glue it together. I might not bother modding it to fit my Mini Mauler, since it is a little too long. I reckon it'll just go on the shelf. :D

Hear that Fred? Bring your camera. :p I painted a lexan slot car body the same color, it was a Ford Escort Cosworth RS. I put on the front bumper off a Focus WRC on the 'Scort, too. I put that sucker on my 6-cell XMod and there ain't much left of it now. :D

I don't let Michelle drive it upstairs anymore. She has to drive it in the driveway. That's the only time my truck broke. How many times has your truck broke? ;)



That's right fancy. :p

True that. Unless the guy in Atlanta wants to meet Thursday for a test drive, in which case I'll have to check out my newest toy. ;) Hopefully he's fine with sometime next week though. We'll see what he says.

Well it looks like I won't get the '53 Flipnose done by tomorrow night. Tonight, I should have the engine completely assembled. I painted it just before I took Michelle home, so now it's assembly time. The motor in this thing has almost as many pieces as my $50 Tamiya Ferrari Enzo kit! :eek:
