From the Garage

A guest post from The Car Guy:

Which Company Produces the Most Tires?

The LEGO group produced over 318 million toy tires in 2011 and was recognized by Guinness World Records as having the highest annual production of tires by any manufacturer.
Compare that to the top three tire manufacturing companies (by revenue):  Bridgestone (manufacturing 190 million tires), Michelin (184 million), Goodyear(181 million).

Charger Daytona – Unreal and Real

The Car Guy knows someone who has a real 1969 Charger Daytona. There weren’t very many made and his friend has one of the rarest – a Hemi 4 speed.

Concours in the Hills 2022

This car show (in Fountain Hills, Arizona) is one of the largest in the country. This year there were just over 1000 cars and 10 military helicopters. Attendance was probably over 30,000 spectators. Car clubs included Ferrari, Lamborghini, Porsche, McLaren, Maserati, Jaguar, Corvette, Viper, Ford GT, Lotus, Audi, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Alfa Romeo, DeTomaso, DeLorean, Mustang, Cadillac and others.

  1. I have a red truck calendar in my den and love it. The red truck isn’t a photo, but a painting, and it is completely and utterly charming! It’s a Lang calendar. By the way, the Car Guy seems to have married a Car Gal.

    1. I’ll have to look for Lang calendars!
      The reason we liked the truck so much is that we used to have one of them. We bought it and only had it for a few years when the wife of the original owner called us and wondered if we would sell it back to her. She said they realized they should not have sold it, so she wanted to surprise her husband by getting it back!

  2. My brother just happened to be working on a Lego Porsche last night so I sent him the “fact” at the top of your post. Appreciate that 🙂

    1. I should have done a count of how many LEGO tires we have! Outnumbers the real tires in The Car Guy’s fleet, that is for sure!
