2007 AutoFest ADDWC Charity Casting



This year we are “On a Mission” to continue our awesome tradition of a special show casting directly associated with our charity of choice, ADDWC. This years casting comes in a jaw dropping THREE variations. The blue and black stripe version will be sold as a pair and the white stripe version is the Chase Car. When offered for sale it will be in the same price format as posted for the Pace Car earlier today. Delivery of this car looks to be late July and at this point we need to finalize this years sponsor logos. The examples shown are based off of some of last year’s logos to give you an idea of the design format and “look”. The graphics will remain the same but the sponsor logos depend on this year’s interest level and number involved.



Today we are offering up the two items we need finalize for the casting. First, we will be auctioning off the Mechanic’s name to the high bidder just as we did last year. You can immortalize yourself or a friend forever on this die-cast simply by winning the bid. Like last year you may purchase a spot on the car with your personal or company logo for 50.00 and it will be placed in one special spot on the car. All art must be supplied to me in Vector Art format so that Mike Grothuis designs can add it to the casting without duplication issues. Your logo will appear in the same spot of each variation. I final version will be posted after the auction ends and sponsor bid art is received.



Casting details



300 – blue stripe version

300- black stripe version

150 – white stripe version



Factory produced piece with metal chassis and sealed in a blister. Show exclusive colors graphics and especially the format makes this one very special offering. Blisters will be numbered and sets will be matched.







All art information needs to be e-mailed to: [email protected]



To be able to keep track of the Mechanics name auction, we will post the actual auction at one site only so people can keep track of it. It will be posted on HobbyTalk under Motor Max and the thread heading will be ADDWC “Mechanics Name Charity Contest” The contest will start today and end Wednesday night, February 28th at 9:00 Central IN time.

70's vintage Door Slammer. A common class for drag racing on the weekend circuit. They often have a theme name like "Hemi Under Glass" "Color Me Gone" stuff like that. We tied that thought in with the charity theme since ADDWC is on a mission to help the developmentally disadvantaged and we are on a mission to help them so we picked "On a Mission" The sponsor logos are then applied to look like the racer's sponsors for the car and auction winners will be placed as the driver, mechanic and perhaps car painter and engine builder.

Vegas and Mavericks for the time were heavily used for this and this casting was an obvious choice.

Not a bad question at all!

When & how will these be available? Hoping that there will be enough span of time between these and the pace cars being available to be able to afford both.
Also, who is doing this casting, Fresh Cherries? or RC2?

Looks great. I like the ADDWC on the deck lid. I can tell you it feels great to have your name printed on a classic so bid high. I'll leave that to someone else to enjoy. And that is something to show off! Can you put me down for 3 sets already?

Relax, Shane. I meant that in the "meanest" sense; the kind of car you don't want to take lightly. I think Mike did an awesome job on this design, and hope he took "nasty" the intended way as well. :thumbsup:

Used as: That guy's got a nasty fastball (see also: filthy, sick )

It would be cool to have a sponsorship on the cars, but I know ZERO about artwork and the words "Vector Art format" scare the beejeezes out of me. :drunk:

How does one use that format????

Pace Cars will deliver early May. ADDWC cars look like July. We are getting the logos lined up first for the ADDWC car and there will be a couple contest to fill in the names as well. Should be at least a month between payments. Payments start this week for the Pace car. Payments for the ADDWC car should start early April.

Both These are Fresh Cherries. There will be Johnnies in the line up this year as well as they will cover most of the Event contests.
