Man Cave Alert: Pit Stop Furniture is Here

Sep 10, 2012 No Comments by

No matter what we call them – “man caves”, “decompression chambers”, or “toy rooms” – those spaces that we build within our homes and offices are where we enjoy our collections, celebrate our passion for the automobile, and share quality time with friends. These rooms and areas are truly special to us.  But up until recently, die-hard car folk were limited as to what kind of furniture they could put inside those spaces.

Not any more. Intro-Tech’s “Pit Stop Furniture” series of chairs, desks, and accessories is taking some popular automotive themes – and more than just a few auto parts – to make a line of comfortable, slick looking units to round out and complement your cave/chamber/toy room.

The race themed office chairs are patterned after the same well-bolstered units you’d find on the starting line, mounted to seemingly race ready bases. The top line  ”Formula One” executive chairs are built atop spring-loaded struts with a cross-drilled brake rotor and caliper base; a shift-knob adjuster and coil-over arm rests and tilting seat backs make the seating customizable and comfortable for work or gaming, and the unit rolls on mini “22-inch” five-spoke race wheels.  The straight-backed ” Grand Prix” race chair uses that same adjustable caliper/disc base, and also features adjustments for height and tilt; for guests and additional seating, the “GT Receiver” race chairs are set onto fixed rails that look just like the punched-out frame rails on a racer. Each of the seats features “tire tread” armrests, and comes finished in durable leatherette, in a series of available colors.

 

The “Racing Style” desk is a riot, too – right to the spoiler-themed document tray. Built atop more of that rail-style metal, the desk features race shocks, braided hose cabling (for what the manufacturer calls “Lateral Control” – how cool is that?), and a selection of clear, red, or gray desktop finishes.

And, because these are real car guys, they also make a pullout desk tray for your keyboard, and a creeper-style computer tower carrier, also on those 5-spoke “22″ wheels.  Add in the available diamond-plate chair mat for a total package that will bump up any car-crazy decor. And here’s the kicker – it’s all designed and built right here in the USA.

About the author

I was always crazy about toy cars and car-themed play sets, but I got hooked on car models when my cousin sent me a pair of built-up AMT kits - a '61 Continental and a '57 Thunderbird. I was six or seven years old when another cousin - Carl - showed me how to build and paint, and by the time I was nine, I had a pretty good collection and a great "spares box" on hand. The original Auto World catalogs were my dream books; my allowance was spent before it was ever earned, and I knew every hobby store and model retailer on Long Island. Then came slot cars, Cox .049-engined Baja Buggies and airplanes, and, ultimately, the real things. I still have some of those old models, and when time allows, I still build or detail scale cars. But it's the ready-to-display replicas and scale racing models that have really had me jazzed for the past fifteen years or so. The "mint" diecasts and the 1:18 American Muscle cars that I cut my serious collecting (and writing) teeth on back then led straight to the current crop of offerings from high-end makers and models in every scale. I also love scale model photography, and shooting, scoring, and producing videos of the models I love. I'm a proud member of the DiecastSpace Diecast Hall of Fame, as well as the Diecast Car Collectors' Club Diecast Scale Model Hall of Fame. I'm also proud to be a part of the Die Cast X Team, and as Editor-in-Chief, I'm looking forward to years of growing the publication and showing new collectors how much fun this hobby can be. And, yeah - I still have that spares box.
