Hmm, yep, who takes a tire off and then puts the hub cap back on.

I'm not sure on this one, but shouldn't the wipers park on the passenger's side?

I found that same hotwheels at the local target the other day. I took it out of the package. I just can't stand not being able to touch it. I also got the Lamborghini Miura that they had. It was one of their detailed special edition cars. Apparently Hotwheels release a GT3 in 2003. I'd love to get that one.

That Hot Wheels Porsche is sweet! Your best bet, if you have to absolutely play with it, is buy another and stash the one pictured.

Buying two of anything is the first lesson of Animation and Toy Collecting 101.

Is that an engine hoist poised above the rear??? If so, they must be getting ready to drop in a V8

No. Chris's car is the turbo made by Johnny Lightning.

Ha! The supply of unopened 911 hotwheels is now smaller by ONE! Mine is that much more valuable now.

Seriously, though, I broke the package open right after this post. It rolls FAST!

The (silver) ventilation fan has a solid brick wall behind it.
The license plate is German yet the writing in the garage is in English

5) Computer has no power cord or data cables
6) Vice does not appear to be attached to anything, ready to fall off shelf
7) Door knob too large
8) Wrench and hammer on wall and on floor (must have two?)
9) Tire block not properly secured against tire
10) Car should be silver…would look better in silver (my opinion)
The fire extinguisher needs to be recharged.

There are two crescent wrenches and a hacksaw very prominent in their toolset. Scary.

Where is this place? I don't want to take my car there.

Second diarama: is that a reflection in the hood, or it hiding a 454 rat underneath?

Hey and anyway, where's the giant key to wind these cars up?

If that was a gay repair shop, they would be in the back seat of the car. Not working on it.
