Sunday’s RCX SHOW brings out hug crowds and mondo kids…


It wasn’t enough that I went to Huntington Beach, but afterwards I met a ton of new people at THE RCX SHOW at The Long Beach Convention Center. Did a fun Book Signing and got to hang with kids, fams and the crazed Hooter Girls! (They were pretty funny, actually)

PLUS, RC Fans were goin’ nuts over the helicopters, movie cars and everything else. Check out the mondo shots below for some of the highlights…

What a great event over the last 2 days in Long Beach. Got to see old friends like Joe Kelly, Mike Zarnock, Chris Parker, Carson Lev and Eddie Castro of Maisto/Muscle Machines. Tons of custom diecast, RCX exhibitions and GIRLS. (Check out the Girls Gallery, too…)

But the kids, man, the kids where goin’ like a train on a mission. Even my niece, Alexa showed up to take in the sites. That was her first show and she went all hog wild on the RC Jumping. Big thanks to Forrest and his team at RCX for putting on a great show and the invite. Looking forward to RCX 2013!

That’s right. April 28th-29 will be the RCX Show and I’ll be there hangin’ out in the Diecast Section (DCX) along with my friends from DiecastX Magazine. Join the Facebook Page and COME TO THE SHOW!!

Awesome RCX SHOW highlights!!

Wow, what a great show! The energy was incredible and we had a blast with over 20,000 people attending!! The show turnout was far greater than expected, with huge numbers of kids, parents, vendors and super cool cars!

Big thanks to all those that made it such a great show. Brian from RCX, Paul Nigh and his Back to the Future Delorean, SportChassis Trucks, Bryn Faulkner and his awesome Tattoos. I even got to shoot it with Superstar San Diego Linebacker, Kevin Burnett. We also premiered our new DRAGTRACKS SYSTEM. Awesome.

Wups. Spent a little too much on diecast. Oh, well…. Check out the highlights!!

What’s up at the Fireball pad this week?

It’s crazy time. Never, in all the years that I’ve been into cars has there been a more active period. It’s wild and 2010 is steppin’ up to the plate with tons of fun stuff. Although I can’t reveal too much in detail, (’cause I’ll be shot…) I can say that we have several possible builds in the works. Hm… howz about a list… to get me started so I can stay oorgonizzed?

1. I’d like to work with a major automotive manufacturer for a possible SEMA car. No, it’s not SMART. But something serious. BOOM!

2. I’d like to work with another big company on another build… for SEMA.Wait. Two? Am I nuts? DON’T ANSWER THAT!

3. How about develop a new TV Show that’s gonna be a blast? But we have to sell it first, duh. OKAY, BOOM!

4. All new Dragtracks are finally here! Gonna be playing with it at RCX. Plus, we’ll be joined by our friends at Sport Chassis. BIG BEASTY above…

5. So many events, I can’t even hold them all in my pea brain. But, after RCX, it’s “officially crazy time.”

6. How about working with a company that makes deliciousness? Edible cars? Nope, but nice guess.

7. And an all new episode of “WORLD OF CARS” coming next week!! Sweet! Look for it all over the web. Yes, it’ll be funny… and stupid… and… about cars!

8. New tattoo… Ouch. Should I skip that?  NO WAY, JOSE!!!!

All in all, not bad for the first 2 months of the year. I mean… if it all happens, right? If I’m gonna cause trouble, I might as well have fun along the way?
