LaLD Car Week Purple(ish) Friday LaLD Car Week Purple(ish) Friday

My submission for purple day is my monster jam Wild Hair. This was a truck that originated in ‘88 as owned and driven by Bob Breen. He then sold the name to Marvin Smith who ran a paint scheme similar to the one on this truck, only yellow and black. In the mid aughts, the name was bought by Jason Witte who ran this…

Here is my submission for black Thursday, my custom monster jam Grave Digger. I skipped yesterday because, well, I don’t have a silver monster truck.

My submission for blue Tuesday is my custom 1/64 Bigfoot Champions Hot Wheels. These things came out around 1991, and I used to have the entire lot of them when I was a kid. The one with small tires, the one with big tires, the one with really big tires, the tank, the hauler, and Snake Bite. A while back while going…

For my entry on Red day here is a Monster Jam truck I detailed and did a body swap to nearly 10 years ago. During a trip to my parents house, I discovered this in the attic while hunting for buried treasure. Some day I’ll put a grille and a tonneau cover on it so it looks a bit more finished. Enjoy!

While checking out a used car yesterday, I found this guy stuck behind the seat. Any of you guys know anything about it? I checked eBay and they go for about $8

How come no major 1/64 manufacturer has ever made a version of this? How come no major 1/64 manufacturer has ever made a version of this?

Sure, HW made a dually and the “race truck” and Matchbox has its obviously smaller than 1/64 lifted version, but why has no one made a regular civilian version?

Just stumbled across this the other day. I’ve been trying to figure out a way to make roll bars, cages, and exhaust pipes without soldering as my soldering skills are, well, crap. For those who don’t know, I’m a mechanic. I’m around aerosol cans of WD-40, Brake clean, silicone spray, etc. They all come with these red…

The original monster truck, Bigfoot. I made this from an old Hot Wheels Bigfoot Champions toy I’ve had (and used, and abused) and some Monster Jam wheels and tires. To go along with my Grave Digger #2, I made it in the style of Bigfoot #4 from 1990. From 1988 to 1990, there was the TNT points championship where all…

Went from 320 grit wet sanding (they were out of 400) to 600, to 2000, cleaned up with some alcohol, and then three coats of clear coat. It’s orange peeling a bit now, but we’ll see if a little polishing will clean that up tomorrow after it sits for 24 hours. I’m already happy with how it looks as opposed to how it…
