and then there's the gifts...


One Gauge Set will be FREE each day of the sale!
An order will be chosen by a random number generator. That order will have the gauge price ($99) refunded back to them and they'll get the gauges for free!

Yes, I said "refunded." That means you have to try your luck and place an order. I can't give a refund to someone who hasn't placed an order. I did this last year and everyone loved it. I've gotta do it again.

GIFTS!!!
I'm giving away a random gift every day. Each is a special package that I've thought about and gathered. A curated gift, if you will. Each will be wrapped and packed with an order randomly.

Monday's gift: an instant JDM Hot Wheels Collection.
image

ebay scalper value on this package is well over $100 shipped. It includes:
2 Datsun Wagons (the yellow is a smooth grill variant)
Mazda-livery SA RX-7
1st edition red NSX
Black EF Honda Civic (the prettiest IMHO)
Kenmeri Skyline
Redline Hakosuka Skyline
White Datsun 510 on Real Riders (rubber tires)
Black 2000GT
and the James Bond 2000GT Roadster

I'll post a new gift each day.

Goodies!!!

Most folks know that I include a gift bag with every order. The Sharksgiving gift bag will be HUGE. Extra holiday candy, awesome stickers, and carefully chosen Hot Wheels.

image

I've been slowly gathering these throughout the year. These are not just any little cars. These are the hard to find ones. Datsun Wagons, Kenmeri Skylines, white livery RX-7s, and tons of others.

Each order that ships in a box gets a random car. MOST orders ship in a box.

And today's gift has been sent out! Someone who ordered this morning (and I had parts in stock for) will get a Hot Wheels set.

As for the free gauges, I'll refund those tomorrow after all of today's orders have come in.

Day 2 Gift:

image

Here’s today’s gift! A Japanese Nostalgic wheel coaster set from Oneone2auto. This is the original set. It’s my favorite.

I got these a while back and did an entire blog post on them. They’re such beautiful pieces. I had to order a set to give away.

And what's that on top of the canister?

image

I’m including a Star Shark keychain in gold as well. I don’t make many of these. Generally I give them away to fellow Miata drivers when I hear they also have Sharks. Sort of a Star Shark club if you will.

Both items will go to someone at random who’s order ships today.

I can't bring myself to use them as coasters. The wheel ones are too pretty. They're more like art.

Free gauges - Day 1.

image

Yesterday’s competition was fierce. There were 14 gauge sets ordered. Justin’s number was picked by random .org (order 12) and his Zen gauges will be free. Well done Justin! Congratulations!

Bucky's badge set.

image

image

These badges really transformed Bucky from a regular looking Miata into something a bit more upscale. I enjoy them every time I walk up to the car. I wish I could capture them better with photos.

I thought giving away a set of Prototipo badges and a keychain would make a lovely gift for one of the days. And that day is today. This set ($105 value) will go out with an order today at random.

Day 4 Gift

image

Anyone who’s looked at more than a handful of posts on this blog knows about my love for Transformers. It’s deep. It’s life-long. I’ll be 90 and still transforming one of these little guys. They were my first choice as a gift bomb. All of the other gifts kinda grew out of the idea of bombing someone with a Transformer bundle.

image

image

You get –

The 1986 movie on DVD in the 2 disc uber-edition. This thing goes for like $90 on amazon.
A Megatron and Prime figure pair. Long discontinued.
Transforming Legends Optimus Prime. A tiny buddy to help light your darkest hour.
A G1 Cliffjumper from my personal collection.
And a complete 1-6 Dreamwave Transformers comic run and 1-6 War Within comic run.

These guys are almost certainly responsible for my love of cars. Hot Wheels? Yeah, I love them meow, but the ones I had as a kid weren’t very detailed and didn’t stimulate my imagination. For me, it was Transformers. Realistic cars turning into heroic dudes who saved the day? Yes. Very yes.

I am truly thankful for Transformers.

This gift set will go out in a random package sent tomorrow. Not today, since it’s Thanksgiving and everything is closed.

Day 5

image

Comics!!! I love them. I’ve read several thousand over the past couple years since re-discovering them and have enjoyed every minute. I think my gauge art has improved as a direct result.

These are some of my favorites.

Rocket Raccoon – Skottie Young 1-4
Silver Surfer – Slott and Allred 1-4
Saga 1-4
Hawkeye – Fraction and Aja 1-4

image

Comics by themselves weren’t enough. A couple buddies seemed to be just the thing. Rocket and Groot were easy choices. And getting a HUGE Rocket and tiny Groot seemed extra awesome.

I hope this gift bomb infects someone else with comic love. It will go out randomly in a box today.

Gauges

image

Margaret’s Fallen gauges were picked by the random number generator as today’s free set. Her $99 will be refunded. Congratulations Margaret!

Thanks!!! It's something I'm trying this year. Not sure if folks are liking it or not. I've not had much feedback.

But it was huge fun to put the gifts together.

I have two names. Trying to figure out how to post a pic of custom gauges that don't exist yet...

eh... I'll just post names.

#1 - Chase
$99 from your custom American Tradition style gauges will be refunded! Well done!!!

Everyone got 5 "votes" on the random number site. Chase was the last payment of the sale yesterday and got 91-95. It picked 93 as the first number.


and number 2...

#2 - Lindsey
Your Rossa gauges will be refunded and you'll just pay for shipping and bulb covers. Congrats Lindsey!

Her numbers were 36-40. Random .org chose 39.
