Monster Truck Madness – Resolutions

Hey all and Happy New Year! Ya know, I’m generally not a person for resolutions. I’m always of the mind that there’s no better day to make a change for yourself than today, and that’s whether it’s in the middle of July OR Jan 1. However, I’ll admit that being a week into 2022, the time does feel ripe to put [...]

Monster Truck Madness - Ending the Year with Awesome BIGFOOT…

Hey gang, as 2021 comes to close, I wanted to share some absolutely stunning BIGFOOT replica monster trucks with you, built by my friend @TEAM_BIG_GUNZ_RACING on Instagram.

Monster Truck Madness – Playin’ the Slots

I dunno about you all, but this time of year I always get nostalgic for slot cars. Some of my favorite Christmas presents back in the day were slot car sets. Heck, in recent years I even flirted with the new high-tech digital tracks (very fun!) by buying a layout. So imagine how cool it was to hear of the amazing [...]
