Congratulations to racing legend Mario Andretti, who celebrates his 72nd birthday today!
We've been featuring 1/18 scale replicas of two of Mario's most famous racing cars this month: The 1969 Indianapolis 500 winning Brawner Hawk and the Ferrari 512S he drove to victory in dramatic fashion less than a year later at the 1970 12 Hours of Sebring. We sold out of our first shipment of Ferraris a few hours after mentioning it in last Email Update. Additional stock has arrived and we have been able to post a series of detailed photos HERE. The Ferrari 512S boasts excellent detail for a model in the 'under' $100 price range. Take a look!
We have several DVD programs in stock that feature The Birthday Boy:
Speaking of racing legends, 3-time Indianapolis 500 Winner Bobby Unser (who turned 78 last week, by the way) was the guest of honor at the third annual Meadowdale International Raceways Preservation Association (MIRPA) dinner last Saturday night. Bobby was kind enough to sign a few things for us, most notably the engine covers from our remaining stock of 1/12 scale GMP Bardahl Special Dirt Champ Car models. These models are new in the box and priced at just $395.00 each. Only 3 available. Reserve HERE.
We also carry DVDs of some of Bobby Unser's greatest victories:

Senna US DVD
We're just a week away from the official US release of the most talked about racing documentary in decades. 
An advance copy of 'Senna' arrived here today and I was pleased (relieved, actually) to see that the single-disc US version includes virtually everything contained in the double-disc sets released in other parts of the world. 
Special Features include nearly an hour of interviews, Senna family home videos, Filmmaker Commentary with Director Asif Kapadia, Writer Manish Pandey and Producer James Gay-Rees and the film's Trailer.
I've started processing orders and will begin shipping the day our shipment arrives. We still have a few copies available.
$22.99 plus shipping. Order HERE.

 - Automobile Year 59 (2011/12) is due to arrive next week. A bit more affordable this year. Just $79.95 plus shipping. Reserve HERE.


 - Good news for those of us who have been patiently awaiting the 1/18 scale Jim Clark Lotus 25 from Spark. We've been informed that the US shipment of this model will leave the factory this week. A late March / early April delivery window is expected. We bumped up our order last week but only have a few slots available. Spark has kept the price at $169.00. Reserve HERE.


- Due to a late cancelation, we have one of CMC's magnificent 1/18 scale Scuderia Ferrari FIAT Bartoletti Race Car Transporters in stock. List price is $895.00 but will let this one go with a 10% discount. Grab it HERE.
