Today is a day of transition friends. We have been working hard behind the scenes to bring you something new, something fresh and amazing. This blog is going to sleep, signing out for the weekend, we will be back on Monday with something NEW! Make sure to visit the main www.maisto.com page next week!
It’s race week here in Fontana, CA. Not sure if you were aware of this, but the Auto Club Speedway is just down the street from CAPD headquarters. It’s pretty awesome when there’s some racing or qualifying going on, we can hear it at our offices. Nothing like the smell of burning rubber in the air. I stopped by the Auto Club Speedway Administration office the other day and saw this awesome statue/plaque in their lobby. It was very nicely done!
Then I noticed the Woody looked very familiar. Yes it is… a 1:18 scale Maisto 1948 Chevrolet® Fleetmaster™ “Woody!”
this woody had a trailer with the famous Jimmie Johnson’s ride in tow.
Whenever race week comes around, I see so many NASCAR big rigs heading to the track on the freeway or side streets close to headquarters. So here is today’s Freeway Foto of Digger and his buddies shot on I-15. They were lookin right at me!
So I will be attending my very first ever NASCAR event this Sunday for the Pepsi Max 400! I’m looking forward to it.
Holy WOW, this is an amazing looking car. Celebrating the brand’s 75th anniversary, the Jaguar C-X75 Concept is a hybrid sportscar powered by four electric motors and two gas turbines, for a total output of 795 hp. It previews the design evolution for the future models.
Got a chance to hit up Brooklyn Projects and Jae Bueno’s event on Saturday evening. There were a lot of people in attendance to check out Jae’s work, have some drinks, listen to some great music, and peep some fine lookin’ lowriders out front! The wife and I made the trek all the way from Victorville to Pasadena because Jae and Steph are friends of ours and well, we love his work.
There were a couple of limited edition shirts with Jae’s photos on them for sale, if you’d like more info about the show, or picking up the tees, check out JaeBueno.Com.
A friend of ours, photographer and die-cast collector, Jae Bueno is having a solo photo exhibition at Brooklyn Projects in Pasadena tonight. If you’re in the area, stop by and show your support. I’ll be in attendance for sure.
