    Well its my turn. After five years with Melissa (Mel on the HAMB) we're getting married. It seems everything is in place.
    We're ready and excited. We did had to make some compromises as to the ceremony and reception location so our families can visit and have fun.
    Here is one of the projects I've had to work on for a few months.
    I made about 100 custom Hot Wheels wedding cars. I wanted them to look legit and personalized for us. I did 20 of each style, all wedding themed. Custom graphics, paint, packaging.
    Yes, I happen to work for Hot Wheels but I only got some help from them on this one. I had to find all the cars at the local swaps and then some at retail. It was quite an undertaking, I think they'll make reception a bit more Hot Rodderish!

    Now I have to leave the HAMB for about two weeks, we're going to Maui on our Honeymoon!

    Hey I got a Snow Ride here in my drawer at work. Every year for Christmas I make my son (he's eight) a tree ornament out of a "New Model" for that year. I haven't decided which one I'm going to use this year but Snow Ride is in the running. However, I think I'm leaning towards the 67 Shelby GT-500 though, sorry.
     
  17. Very cool. I wonder how long before one gets listed on Ebay? LOL

    Those are awesome! I wish I had thought of that! Congrats you two!
     
  26. Congrats Abe!
     
  27. Those are some damn cool party favors. Original and memorable, and people will actually keep them.

    If I was attending, I know I wouldn't be able to keep mine in the box more than five minutes. :D

    You must have one hell of a cool girl to get away with those. My wife would not even think of allowing that
