December is always a hectic month here. We're working hard to bring you a great selection of new books, models, DVDs, artwork and other memorabilia in time for the Holidays. If you're in the Chicago area, we hope you'll stop by (10-6 weekdays, 10-3 Saturday) to find that perfect item for the racing enthusiast in your life (or for yourself. We all do it.). As an added bonus, we have LOTS of unique, one of a kind items to choose from this year! 

Here are a few things we've been working on:

2014 LeMans Annual
Teissedre / Moity

Your response to last week's email was so strong that we reserved a few extra pieces for those of you who may have missed last Wednesday's cutoff.

Also in that shipment is the #3 Magnussen/Garcia Corvette that scored the first C7R victory at Long Beach in April. We have two pieces left from our allotment. The Long Beach winner is priced at $495.00. Reserve HERE.

Mattel - Ferrari Partnership Ends December 31
As most of you know, Mattel has held an exclusive licensing arrangement with Ferrari for diecast cars since the late 1990s. At first, the Mattel product was rather crude compared with the previous releases from Minichamps and others. However, in recent years, the Hot Wheels Elite Ferraris have become more impressive and extremely popular. According to the press release, the two parties have mutually agreed not to renew their arrangement, which expires at the end of the year. There have been lots of questions regarding models announced by Hot Wheels Elite that have not yet been produced. Some have been canceled but we've been informed that both the 1/18 scale LaFerrari and Niki Lauda Ferrari 312T2 will still be released as planned. The LaFerrari will be here by February, the Lauda (hopefully) soon afterwards. There's still time to reserve one of these 'end of an era' pieces. Click on the links to order.

Ho, Ho, Ho!
