LaLD Car Week: 2020

Get ready for the greatest week in diecast

35w ago


The time as come to host our favorite week-long event on DriveTribe, the new home of LaLD. This year we're crashing the party at Amelia Island, whose concours takes place on Sunday, March 8th. LaLDers are encouraged to post up the best of their best that fits the theme for each day of the week. This year’s theme will be "Cars I'll Never Get to Own" which our man Nate Brodoway proposed. You can only post once per day, one scale per day. Winners will be decided based on total number of bumps, with comments serving as tie-breakers.

Our schedule is as follows:

Sunday, March 8th: Costs too much money

Monday, March 9th: Too hard to find

Tuesday, March 10th: Too impractical

Wednesday, March 11th: Never produced

Thursday, March 12th: I'd die if I drove it

Friday, March 13th: Mechanical nightmare

Saturday, March 14th: LaLDer's choice!

Winners will be selected for each day, each for best 1:64, 1:43, and 1:18 scale (three winners each day, by scale)

We will also have an overall winner for each day, a Best of Show winner for most bumps in a week (Best of Show), and Best Custom.

Prizes will be awarded for the Best of the Day winners, Best of Show winner, and Best Custom winner.

Start making your selections, shooting, and writing up your posts now as this theme requires some thinking. Big thanks to Nate for coming up with this year's theme!

  • Very excited about this theme. It's going to take a while for me to figure out which cars to bring, which makes it better than just throwing cookie cutters out there.

  • One quick consideration. We may want to consider making sure either all or none of the posts get promoted to Hobbies or elsewhere on DT... that can really sway the bumps.

    • I would think the opposite! Hopefully that is motivation for better pictures and/or articles

    • I want to see everybody get front-paged, though. May diecast take over the world.
