What’s happening at THE FIREBALL PAD this week?


Stuff be flying like a goat with a plasma booster attached to his tush. Seriously…

• First up, in our home shop, Kathie is heavy into the build of the 2014 SUPERBOWL MASCOT for Arizona. Yes, the Superbowl will be in Arizona. Plus, she’ll be starting a new secret project for THE WHITE HOUSE again. Well, it’s another Ostrich, so the bird’s outta the bag.

TOYS! Still a designing fool for the upcoming Christmas season. Expect to see some crazy new toys coming from PACIFIC STORM and yours truly. Awesome cars or light and sound. Plus, udder stuff.

SHOWS! Filming on Thursday with my special guest, RODNEY ALLEN RIPPY. You remember Rodney from the Jack In The Box Commercials of the 80’s? What’s he up to now? I’ll find out. PLUS, the insane new Chevy Malibu SS.

• SHOOTING an all new Ride of the Week today for the Malibu Surfside News. What is it? Well, you need to see next week’s issue, but this week’s is out tomorrow. I’ll be at The Pepperdine Track & Field at 2pm today  if you want a sneak preview.

• New HYPERSHORT on Thursday…

• TODAY? Off to the shop to check on Ben Affleck’s car and see what’s up. Photos tomorrow of all things cool.

And don’t forget…

If you think you are beaten, you are;
If you think you dare not, you don’t;
If you’d like to win, but think you can’t,
It’s almost a cinch you won’t.
If you think you’ll lose, you’re lost,
For out in the word we find
Success begins with a fellow’s will,
It’s all in the state of mind.

If you think you’re outcasted, you are;
You’ve got to think high to rise.
You’ve got to be sure of yourself before
You can ever win a prize.
Life’s battles don’t always go
To the stronger or faster man;
But soon or late the man who wins
Is the man who thinks he can.

What’s goin’ on TODAY?

Oh, …you know the drill. Fireball hath stuff to do, and it’s aaaaall fun… ’cause that’s just the way I roll.

Big day though, as my new kid’s book has just left for the printer overseas and will be coming back in February as the finished product. We’ll be doing a launch at the Publisher at that time and at the same time the Detroit Auto Show is going on. And, you’re all invited, so stay tuned to the blog for details.

Now that Lifetime Oil Filters are being sold in Pep Boys in LA and Orange County, you can get yours there! Or, you can just head to the website and snag one there. But full featured articles are coming with all the details. Picking up the Founder, Christopher Hubbard tonight from the airport ’cause we have a meeting with Matt Farah from “The Car Show” on Speed. He’s gonna dig it.

What else? DREDD opens Friday so I gotta get prepped. Bloody-Gory this one, but I gotta see it ’cause of the cool bikes. He, he…

The HONDA INSIGHT is leaving the Fireball Pad today, and what’s coming next? OMG. The CAMARO ZL1 with over 500hp. That’s a switcharooooo.

The Auto Channel is featuring my shows AutoDissection and CarShorts. Check it out. But if you’re in Florida, the TV Show airs daily. And there’s some sweet car stuff goin’ on in that state…

Writing a new book also! And if all works out, it’ll be published through Kallisti Publishing. Fingers are burning fast, baby…

Off to the gym to load the guns. Have a great day, folks!

What’s goin’ on this week? Filming on CATALINA…

Yea, I can film anywhere in SoCal, but this time I decided to head off shore to CATALINA ISLAND. So, tomorrow morning, I’m grabbing my guest and the crew and heading to this SocCal 28-mile long paradise. It’s a 5MINUTE DRIVE, from a Golf Cart. And… it’s gonna get nutty.

What else is going on? Design Studio Press is hard at work on my awesome new kid’s book “Fireball Tim’s BIG BOOK OF WACKY RIDES” coming this February during the Detroit Auto Show… Developing another new show for Pilgrim Productions… finishing a screenplay about funny monsters… looking at houses… drinking mega-coffee and eating chocolate… and bought a NUTRI-BULLET. Yes, have to counteract the chocolate intake with awesome drinks. And this thing is the best I’ve ever found. Seriously.

I only focus on 4 things. Peace, Prosperity, Joy, Love and Health. I didn’t use to think those things… and I didn’t have them. Now… it’s ALL I think about. And lo and behold… guess what manifests every day.

Anyone can do this. I’m not special. YOU can do this. Starting right now. Hit the DELETE BUTTON of your past ’cause nobody gives a shit whether it was rough or not. Design your future now. What do you want to be? AND LET’S ROCK AND ROLLLLLL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
