Original Hakosuka wheelswap

Updated Hakosuka wheel swap

 

I updated the Hakosuka Skyline I customized last year. I changed the wheels from a original set of MonoBlock wheels to the new ones they launched with tire letters. For this particular swap, I decided to go with the gold chrome wheels with “Toyo Tires” written on them.

You can buy MonoBlock wheels @ www.shopmonoblock.com

Macro: Nissan Skyline GT-R

It took me a while to find this one, I had to literally travel to Colorado Springs in order to find a pair of this cast (sorry local collectors).

(To clarify, I didn’t go to Colorado Springs just to find these, I was on vacation over there and found them in a Barnes and Noble).

M2 Machines Auto Japan Part 1

Well, it has been a while. I got somewhat lazy and with my job being so busy I really didn’t had much chance to post anything here.

A couple of days ago I was in Colorado for my vacations (the pictures I took over there are going up another day) and on my way back to the hotel I stopped by a Wal-Mart and found a complete set of the M2 Machines Auto Japan series. Unfortunately no chases were found here (I doubt I’ll ever find a M2 chase in the wild).

The series consists of 6 cars total and all of them are Nissan’s, and are the following:

  • 1969 Nissan Bluebird 1600 SSS
  • 1969 Nissan Bluebird 1600 SSS Race
  • 1970 Nissan Fairlady Z Z432
  • 1970 Nissan Fairlady Z Z432 Race
  • 1971 Nissan Skyline GT-R
  • 1971 Nissan Skyline GT-R Race

I will be separating this into 3 post’s, with the first one dedicated to the Bluebird.

 

HotWheels: 1967 Chevrolet Camaro

Woke up to a beautiful Monday morning, I then hopped on my motorcycle and headed towards Walmart. When I arrived there I decided to go to the HotWheels section, now this particular Walmart sucks when it comes to restocking HotWheels (always old stock).

But today was different, there was a whole dump box full of the 50th Anniversary Camaro sets. Now, I’m wasn’t that interested in the set to be actively hunting for them, but I still decided to check how the casting looked in person.

I personally think that all of them are kinda meh, yet I still grabbed a couple of them, 2 ’67 Camaro (the hardest one’s to find as per Reddit), 1 Iroc-Z and a ’95 Camaro.

Out of the today’s haul, I’m going to be highlighting the ’67 Camaro.

One thing to notice about this particular casting is that it’s a metal on metal cast (metal body and metal base) and that the hood opens. The rest of the series uses a plastic base.

Thanks for looking 🙂

Toyota Off-Road Truck Hotwheels wheel swap

It’s been a while since I have published something here.

Today I did a wheel swap to a Toyota Off-Road Truck, I used the tires from a Chevy Silverado of the Real Rider series.

Cast’s I used:

  • Toyota Off-Road Truck from the HW Off-Road mainline series, “Q” case.
  • Chevy Silverado from the Real Riders series, #12 out of 18.

First thing first, here are the before pictures of both cars.

Taken apart.

Final result.

The only issue using the Silverado wheels is that it does rub on the wheel wells of the Toyota, but it still rolls as long you don’t put much pressure on the cast.
