Diamond-covered Hot Wheel car unveiled

It's the perfect toy for the boy who has everything: a diamond encrusted model car.

 
Diamond-covered toy car unveiled
The model is cast in 18-karat white gold

Toy makers Hot Wheels unveiled the car, made to commemmorate the production of its four-billionth "vehicle", at the 105th American International Toy Fair in NewYork.

Valued at US$140,000 (£71,187) - a figure that would normally buy six family cars - the model is cast in 18-karat white gold and covered in blue, white and black diamonds. It has rubies set into its tail lights and even the car's case comes with 40 white diamonds.

Designed by celebrity jeweller Jason of Beverly Hills, it is the most most expensive model in the company's history.

The 1:64 scale car will be auctioned later this year, with proceeds going to the charity Big Brothers Big Sisters.

"Since its introduction, Hot Wheels has revolutionized boys' toys and inspired automotive trends," said Tim Kilpin, general manager and senior vice president, Boys and Entertainment, Mattel Brands.

"The historic activities we have planned are a fitting tribute to the brand's heritage and will allow us, and our fans, to celebrate this milestone

Many racers from the early drag race era,including members of the Arizona Drag Race Hall of Fame,will be present.

All American Fuel Dragsters Ready for March Meet

Grants Pass, OR (Feb 26, 2008) In 10 days the air over the Auto Club Famoso Raceway in Bakersfield, California will be permeated with the unmistakable aroma of nitromethane. Over 500 racers and thousands of fans will flock to the 50th anniversary of the event now known as the March Meet. Leading the way will be the Kings of the Sport - Top Fuel dragsters. With 25 of the most extreme cars in drag racing pre-entered, the qualifying sessions on Friday and Saturday promise to be a great show in themselves. The 16 car field in eliminations on Sunday will feature the best of the breed, all shooting for the coveted March Meet trophy and bragging rights of winning the biggest race of the year.

Leading the list of favorites is Brad Thompson from nearby Visalia. Thompson served notice that he plans to pick up where he left off last year (he won the 2007 California Hot Rod Reunion) by carding the quickest pass in the history of the class (5.63) during the 2008 NHRA Winternationals at Pomona. Brad commented, "The run at Pomona didn't feel that good and we had more to throw at it. All things being equal, we should be able to better that time at the March Meet."

On Thompson tail will be four time March Meet champion, Jim Murphy, two time winner, Jack Harris and a host of other contenders capable of running the big numbers including Adam Sorokin, Rick White and Troy Green. In the off-season a lot of fresh parts went into the team trailers and some made huge engine/tuning changes - like Murphy who stated, "We are in the process of building a new car but it won't be done in time for the March Meet. However, our new fuel injector will be in place and we are expecting near instant performance results."

Besides being its 50th Anniversary, the 2008 March Meet is also the inaugural race of the NHRA seven event Hot Rod Heritage Series. Getting off to a good start here will set the pace for the remainder of the points races leading the the 2008 Top Fuel Championship. High stakes indeed.

All the drivers and crews comprising the All American Fuel Dragsters invite their fans to drop by the pits - which are always open - to get autographs, ask questions or just watch the workings of a Top Fuel team. The 50th March Meet promises to be a classic so don't miss 25 Top Fuel dragsters and much more on March 7 – 9, 2008. We'll see you there.

Funds for Foster Family

 
As many of you know, Pat Foster, funny car builder, funny car driver, dear friend and most important of all, the 'King of the Dry Hop and the F word', remains in an advanced care hospital in Post Falls, Idaho.   He has been there since the day before Thanksgiving hanging onto life!  Although he's made some progress, he still has a long way to go.  He suffered an aortic aneurism and the truth is he will be confined to a wheelchair for the rest of his life.  As sad as that is, he is so lucky to be alive!  His will to live is strong and he understands his situation. 

One of the reasons for his positive outlook is his family has never left his side throughout his recovery.  His sisters and his brother have been taking turns staying for weeks at a time and the financial burden must be tremendous.  The hotel across from the hospital has been very supportive to the family, giving them a discounted rate, but even at that, it's substantial.  They still have a food bill and things that have to continue on their own home front.  They all love Pat very much and have never complained one bit.

Last week, Steve, Gloria and Cindy Gibbs went to see Pat and had a great visit with him.  They met up with Kenny Logan, who has been a huge support to the family during this time and got to spend some time with Patty's sister Linda.  Here's what we came away with.

We would like to surprise the family and help in taking care of the hotel bill for a couple of months, and to place gift certificates at the restaurants that they attend which include Denny's and the local favorite 'Hot Rod Café'….how appropriate! 

Also, if you are so inclined to visit him, please do!  He can have visitors and it really lifts his spirits.  His sisters have tacked up letters and pictures that have been sent, all over the walls of his room. 

We can do this people…there is power in numbers.  Foster is getting really good care where he is; for right now, the best way we can help him is by helping his family.  Let's surprise them with this gift of appreciation for all they are doing to help their brother and our dear Patty.   Please note that each and every dollar collected will go directly to Pat and his family.

Spokane Raceway on the Block
If you have not heard already, it is with a sad heart that I have to report that Spokane Raceway Park is going up for public auction. My take on the whole thing is that the Casino will buy the land and bulldoze everything. We have probably seen the last car go down the quarter mile here in Spokane. We can always hope someone will buy the facility and do the work Orville Moe never did and make it a truly viable raceway, but that is probably not going to happen.

I had the pleasure to be with the Alexander/Omlin Top fuel team in 2005 when they were #1 qualifier in the last AHRA world finals, and was there in 2006 when they were the first and only car to run in the fours in Spokane. Great times. Spokane has always been a place where the "little guy" top fuel rails and funny cars ran, always for the love of the sport and not for the little money they received (although every dollar they did get was appreciated and very needed I am sure).

For anyone who wants more info on the sale of the raceway, go to www.spokaneraceway.net for contact information. Please, someone buy this facility and rehabilitate it. I would even volunteer my labor to help bring it back. I am sure that many in the drag racing community here would do the same.

It was good while it lasted.

Sincerely, Greg Harvey
