The Craftsman Club wants to know: Are YOU Made to Race? (Giveaway)

Craftsman CrewTHE ROCK FATHER has partnered with Sears as a paid member of the Craftsman Crew. Are you #MADEtoRACE?

As a grownup, one thing I really wish I had the skill to do is fix up some old cars and take them out for a little old-school racing action. The only engine that I ever personally rebuilt was one for a go-kart, and I did that back in high school. I wish I'd learned more years back, but one thing I know for sure is that it's not only vehicles that can be "Made to Race," but people as well. Looking back, I'm fairly confident that I was #MADEtoRACE from the get-go - circa 1976. Just look at that little Renault Racing suit...

Pancake-isms, Protein & Hungry Jack Prize Packs: Are You Ready to Be Your Own Jack?

THE ROCK FATHER™ is a "Be Your Own Jack" Brand Ambassador for Hungry Jack. All opinions are that of James Zahn, because he is his own Jack. 

Back in June, I shared with you my experience with Hungry Jack Racing, fueling-up with a great breakfast before the JTG Daugherty Racing Team took to the track. Back at home, it's always worth remembering that breakfast is the most important meal of the day - a chance to fuel-up for whatever adventures that the morning might bring. Here at Rock Father HQ, one new element of our breakfast routine just so happens to be a fresh spin on The Rock Daughters' favorite thing to eat in the morning: Pancakes. My friends at Hungry Jack have just released their all-new Complete Buttermilk Pancake and Waffle Mix with 10 Grams of Protein! A complete mix (just add water!) - in addition to being packed with protein, it also has six vitamins + iron, and is a great source of calcium. I feel a Pancake-ism coming on...

The Mystery of the Topper Toys Johnny Express Truck...

Last week, the girls and I did something that we rarely do - we stopped at a garage sale. Truth be told, we actually turned around to go back to a garage sale we'd already passed, just because I'd spotted some big, old TONKA Trucks sitting out there. The sale was actually at a construction company, so it was pretty perfect that they'd have toy construction gear, but most of the TONKA stuff (some dating back to the 60s) was in pretty rough shape - except for one. With the sandbox in mind, the girls and I selected a completely working 1991 TONKA Mighty Crane that still has a lot of play left in it. As I put it in the trunk, the guy came over and pointed out the shell of an old Buddy L truck, and something I'd never seen before... a flatbed truck labeled "Johnny Express." I wasn't really interested at first, but when he showed me a box of parts for it, I figured it was worth a shot - again with the sandbox/outdoor play in-mind. I had no idea I was purchasing a legend.

Giveaway - Win a Full Set of Exclusive Tom & Jerry 75th Anniversary Series Hot Wheels Vehicles!

Mattel has been doing some really fun things with Hot Wheels lately, one of which are multiple series' of vehicles with themes rooted in pop culture history. Many of these are retailer exclusives that are offered as sort of a "one-and-done" thing - a big shipment arrives in one shot, and when they're gone, they're gone. For families and casual collectors, sometimes completing a full set is a challenge, as there tends to be one or two hard-to-find cars in the set. Recently, Hot Wheels issued a six-car, Tom & Jerry 75th Anniversary Series that was created to commemorate the MGM Cartoons that won Academy Awards from 1940-1957. I've recently acquired a set, and I'm giving all of you a chance to win it, right here on THE ROCK FATHER Magazine!
