  • One of the first castings Luke learned the name of was a green Rodger Dodger so now we buy every one we find. In fact he has the latest black one in his hands as we speak!!! — Mattman213

Hot Bird, one of my entries to the Royal Rumble. I'm still learning how to get these mods to roll. So the visual I'm not to worried about yet.

  • I love hot birds, looking good! — WorpeX
  • I too love the Hot Birds. Get it quick THEN make it pretty! — Mattman213
  • Wait, is that the trick? I always do it backwards! — WorpeX

Sol-Aire CX4

This one was well loved.Wouldn't roll 5 inches.First one I've ever been able to really improve on.

Just buffed up the original finish,but the new axles ,tires,and the car's weight,make this one fly..

  • Good job! Those are lethal in stock form if they roll well but alot of them are luke yours, well played with and wore slap out. Yours looks great tho and the FTE2's likely brought it back to life nicely. Well done — Mattman213
  • One of my favorite castings, even if it's just nostalgia talking — redlinederby
  • Agreed but its also fast enough to keep up with modern speedsters if you get the right one! — Mattman213

What I'm working on tonight. It's gonna be a dirt track style stock car. Heading to Race Mountain when it's done.

  • Is that regular car Bondo stuff? Or something special? — redlinederby
  • It's Bondo spot putty. — RustBeltRacing

I dont have any pics of my recent mods yet but here's a lineup of customs and rebuilds for Luke to play with.  Cars we found at Flea Markets in dire need of help or that I robbed for wheels.  The truck was too wide for the tracks which is a NO GO for him so we sorted that quick.  He loves this stuff almost more than I do!

For the record, the beater Buick is legit quick and it has NO polishing, bent axles that were straightened best I could and some 5 minute epoxy to hold the axles in.  Some graphite later and it RIPS.  Time to build one for myself!

  • The Mountian Dew ride was my favorite Hot Wheel growing up. I took my loop and jump track and made a side by side dragstrip and the Buick was always the fastest. — Mayfield41
  • I have a couple of them and bought this one with the plans to make Luke a Chick Hicks Hot Wheel. All it needs now is paint and some decals and it's set. I was SHOCKED at how quick it came out. I will be building another now using all the tricks to see if there is anything more to be had from the little Buick! — Mattman213
