Rolling Classics : Auto World / Tom Daniels revisit the S’Cool Bus and Brat Boy – on Juice!

Apr 03, 2012 No Comments by

When was the last time you remember seeing a school bus run the quarter mile? Well, when it comes to Tom Daniels and his imaginative designs – and a choice partnership with one of the hobby’s most prolific manufacturers – the unimaginable becomes reality. Teaming with Auto World, Tom has developed a drag racing set where two of his classic Tom Daniels creations come to life in scale. And we do mean “to life” – these wild rides are slot racers!

The Daniels-fired set features exclusive versions of the “S’Cool Bus” and “Brat Boy” vehicles on Auto World 4Gear slot car chassis; combined with a 13 foot track, a fully functional LED Christmas tree and electronic finish line with win lights, the mix of style and scale racing fun will get your adrenalin pumping for hours trying to master the perfect launch. Even standing still, the set offers up some cool visuals. Keeping with the old school theme, the track set features vintage style full color race decals of Daniel’s art work to decorate the course your way. It’s a great team – and a modern spin on a true classic. Rock on, Tom!

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.
