GOODIES!!





As many of you know, I give away Hot Wheels cars with every order. And I always collect a bunch of the REALLY good ones to send out every Sharksgiving. These are the hard to find cars. The ones that go for $5-20 each on ebay and such. The collector cars.

This year I have around 700 of this type of car to give away.

The first Sharksgiving orders will be packed with the new ND Miata Hot Wheels. I have more than a full case (72) of them. All will go out first, then I’ll start on the Datsuns, Skylines, Japan Historics, and other goodies I’ve collected and saved.

I've got a few car parts from my personal collection to get rid of. I'll be selling those during Sharksgiving too!

Hey um. I wanna get some gauges. For Eiffel. I believe you may still have a cluster of mine hanging around, and maybe a little store credit from those things from Hater.

I may also have another super really good present for you. In the name of holiday spirit. If you still have my email, email me. If you don't, PM me your email. We should talk. :)

Steering Wheels!

I’m getting rid of some unloved wheels in my collection. There’s no reason for two cars to have 15 steering wheels among them, so a few have got to go.





MOMO Daytona from 1983. Flat profile with no dish. 350mm. Completely refinished and blogged about in 2015.



The wheel is a bit smaller than 350mm for whatever reason. It measures out to 345 no matter how I stretch the measuring tape. Pretty odd.

The finish is astounding. I did a really good job on it. The wheel feels SOFT to hold, it’s so smooth. It’s really quite nice. The grip is just a bit too thin for my liking. I’ve never really felt like it was the wheel for me.

I spent weeks refinishing this wheel. Something like 80 hours of work total. I’d like to get $250 shipped for it (US price, world shipping would add a bit more). I’ve seen these sell for $800 and up in much worse condition. But I just don’t feel like this wheel would sell for that price. $250 seems like a better place to start.

If you’re interested, please use the custom order form.

I've got no idea where that cluster may have gone. It sat on my desk for literally over a year until I finally put it in the pile with the rest. Out of the ~50 clusters I have, I'm not sure which it is. Sorry about that. =( I can likely put one together for you.

Please use the custom order form on my site. It's the only way I can keep things straight. I'll have a few hundred custom orders once this is all done and the form helps me a lot.

In past years, I did a give away. Each day, I'd tally up the gauge orders from the previous day and put the numbers into random.org. The one picked by that site got a refund of the $99 gauge price. I'm doing that again this year. :)


Eddie got his Apollo gauges refunded. They were also the first set of Apollo NA gauges sold. Congrats Eddie!

Wanna try your luck? Place an order for gauges during the sale. Then see if they were picked to be refunded the next day.

Taylor's order was randomly picked as day 2's winner. He got his gauges refunded. Congrats Taylor! Enjoy the Sharksgiving present.

Orders on Wednesday are usually the lightest. Try your luck and see if you get some free gauges to wash down your Thanksgiving turkey!

Thank you for the order!! And for everyone else.

There's now over 75 custom orders waiting. I'm projecting delivery time for stuff placed today at sometime in February. I've never had a backlog of more than a week, so I'm kind of freaking out over months of back log. There's also over 100 regular orders in line. I'm not sure if those will be done in December, but I'll try my best.

"AAA Fixit Guy" won the random pick for a gauge refund from the 11/22 orders. Don't know his real name, as the paypal receipt only showed a company name. Regardless, his (or their?) NC Warbird order got refunded. Congrats Fixit Guy!

Stay tuned to see who gets free gauges from the Thanksgiving 11/23 orders tomorrow.

Nardi Gara Sport





Comes with horn button, trim ring, and screws.





I refinished it a couple years back. It's a pretty decent wheel. Not a show stopper, but quite nice to drive with. These usually go for around $250-350. I’d like to get $175 shipped for this one. Shipping in the US only. International folks will need to pay a bit more to get this into their hands.

Use the order form on my site if you're interested in buying.


Momo Mod 07 - the Deep Prototipo





The last wheel I have up for sale is this Mod 07 from MOMO. It’s basically the deep dish Prototipo. I’d never owned a deep wheel before and found this one locally.





This wheel has some wear. It’s not damaged but it does have some experience. The photos make it look much worse than it is in person, but I wanted to capture all of the wear.

The rough section at the bottom of the wheel still has the top leather surface present. It could be stripped and re-finished if you wanted. When the surface goes away and suede is poking out, you can’t refinish leather anymore, but this one is not to that point.

It’s a great driver’s wheel. I’d like to get $150 shipped. And as above, international folks would spend a bit more in shipping cost.

Leftover Friday!!


I've got a bunch of shirts left over from Miatapalooza and MazdaRoadster events. They'll be shipping randomly with orders over the next few days. Most are size large. Sorry, you can't request a size or shirt. They're just random gifts.

Happy Black Friday everyone!

Thanksgiving's gauge refund drawing went to Jeremy who ordered some NC1 JNC gauges. He got $99 back and will probably also get a t-shirt in the box. :) Congrats Jeremy!

Black Friday Double Prize!!!


In years past, I've done a double gauge give-away drawing for Friday orders. I'm doing that again this year!! Put in your order today and come back to see if you got your gauges refunded tomorrow.

Sale still running. Totally overwhelmed by orders.

Tomorrow is the last day. Very excited about that.

Sorry to all who have put in custom orders and not had them answered. Just not enough time to produce gauges, run the laser, keep up with invoices, and keep answering emails and questions. Really sorry for the bad customer service. :(

Keeping everyone updated isn't bad customer service. I would hope that most people can understand when a one man company gets overwhelmed that it might take a little extra time. Thanks for all the great work!
