The characters of the Las Vegas diecast event
I recently attended the Diecast Space event in Las Vegas. There were lots of cool things to see here and especially some very interesting people. I've commissioned "Little Daddy Roth" (Big Ed's son) to do our artwork for our t-shirts, promotions ect. using a cartoonish sketch of the 70 Challenger. This should be some great stuff. I also talked for a long time with "Fireball Tim". What a crazy guy! He may be helping me on some projects, including ways to make TTP even more fun and interesting than it already is! Here is some more info on Tim.
