Welcome to the new Die Cast X Website

Jun 08, 2011 No Comments by

Welcome to our new and improved Die Cast X website! Hopefully you’ll find that this site is easier to navigate and to find specific information. You’ll also find some new areas, like our featured bloggers section where Joe Kelly Jr., Bill Bennett, Marshall Buck, Wayne Moyer and Mike Zarnock (among others) will be posting their latest thoughts and news. I think you’ll also appreciate our new scales section (far left) which enables you to search content by scale to see the latest releases and reviews.   Some features in the works are a calendar of events where we will be listing information on industry events.  If you send me information on your local club events, I’d be happy to add them to the calendar.   Also coming soon will be video coverage of vehicles, events and personalities from the industry.

We’ll be working to get all of the articles and updates moved over from the old website, but so far we all really like the new format.  Please drop us a note and let us know what you like about the new site and what you’d like to see us add.

Come back again soon!

About the author

I have been a car guy since my early teens. From managing a performance center on Long Island NY to being a partner of the world’s largest traveling global car show series; my career path has taken me on an exciting journey. I have consulted for MTV, McDonalds, Turtle Wax, Dodge and other high profile companies and have been published in multiple automotive journals. Alpha Penguin Publishing recruited me to co-author “The Complete Idiots Guide to Customizing Your Ride” for which one of my cars graces the cover.My diecast addiction began about 12 years back. My girlfriend at the time knew I was saving for a Mustang Cobra. She thought it would be humorous and purchased a diecast version to hold me over for a while. What was an initial joke struck a chord because I was fascinated with how Hot Wheels could make such a cool replica for a buck. The next time we went shopping I stopped in the toy aisle and ended up purchasing additional Hot Wheels and a few Jada vehicles. Well you all know the story from here; one shelf led to a book case. The book case quickly became an apartment filled with hundreds of HotWheels, Jada and other 1:64th scale replicas. Next came my introduction to 1:24th and 1:18th scale die cast and twelve years later I am the proud owner of a collection that is displayed in a 2000sq foot facility with a current count of over 12 thousand unique pieces. My then girlfriend, now wife, has a lot of patience for my hobby and my two little girls enjoy it with us too.Today I find myself fascinated with all scales and all models of customized vehicles. From tuners to rat rods, lead sleds to pro street drag. I do have an appreciation for the well delivered OEM vehicles as well. Most of all I enjoy the hunt to complete a set or series of vehicles. I look forward to being a part of DieCast X Magazine and helping to strengthen, grow and deliver our hobby to people who do not know how rewarding it is to an individual and a family.
