2015 Diecast Drive


We haven’t had the opportunity to do this for the past few years, but now we think it’s time to get it started again. Each year, before Christmas, we donate diecast cars to the U.S. Marine Corp Toys For Tots Foundation. The last year we collected for the die cast drive, we donated over 4800 die cast cars and even a few Barbie Dolls. Each year we sponsored the drive, it was very successful, even landing us a spot on the local evening news. We’ve had collectors from as far away as Germany and Australia donate to the cause and we’re hoping that this year will be just as successful. We accept die cast cars in all shapes and forms, any manufacturer, etc. We only ask that they remain in their original packaging, no loose cars. If you’re interested in donating, please download this form for shipping instructions. We’d love to add your name to the growing list of people who have donated over the years. Help us make the 2015 holiday season the best ever!

Kentucky Hot Wheels Web Site

khwapicWe’ve created a new web site named Kentucky Hot Wheels, where all things are Hot Wheels and VDubs. Since we’re avid Hot Wheels collectors and VW enthusiast, what better way to share both of our passions. We’ve added a Classified Ad’s section in hope that local traders, sellers and buyers will use it and avoid other bogus online auctions and classifieds. All ads have to be approved by us before they’re posted. It’s a very easy process. We’ll also be using this site to document the restoration of our 1974 VW Super Beetle, so be sure to keep checking back often for updates. If you see anything missing from this new web site or you can think of a way to make it better, be sure to use the Contact Form to let us know.

Hot Wheels Badges Added

rearbeforerearbeforerearbeforeAdded the GM OEM Hot Wheels badges to the Beetle. Since there’s no way I can afford an official Hot Wheels Camaro SS, I’ll settle for a custom Hot Wheels Beetle.

New Hot Wheels!

hotwheelsAt one time, we were avid Hot Wheels collectors. We still have thousands of cars in our collection and still like to pick up new, interesting finds. Lenora came across these two while shopping today and couldn’t resist. Hot Wheels Hershey’s series Milk Duds Haulin’ Gas and Yorks Dairy Delivery. These cars differ from type Hot Wheels because they have special wheels and real rubber tires. Plus they’re double collectibles. These will be nice additions to our collection.
