Fight rust with electromagnetic technology.

See finalcoat website.

Fighting rust is a must. Despite advances in auto manufacturing, to continue enjoying your new investment you're going to need corrosion protection that goes beyond the manufacturer's limited rust warranties. And while you're at it, why not make the environmental choice?

Captn Bob and Arlo use it on their hot rods and personal new cars.

Deuce of Spades

This film is a brillant story of when a hotrod girl finds a mysterious letter dating back to the fifties hidden in her recently purchased roadster. This letter starts her on a journey to find out who Johnny Callaway is that was mentioned.

She sets out to find the answers and retrace her deuce’s troubled past.  Fast hotrods, cool cats, gravity defying swing dancing and rockin’ retro music all serve as a colorful backdrop to this heartfelt, inspiring story.

Recently Deuce of Spades was awarded the Winner at the International Reel Wheel Film Festival.

Inspired pinstriped designer bags.

Each bag is a one of a kind from a world top pinstriper, each pattern is alittle different, so no two bags will be alike.

Deuce of Spades Sunglasses

Perfect for cruising. They are laser etched super stylish and cool.

Wisconsin Hot Rod Radio was honored to host the Wisconsin theater release of the Deuce of Spades. Faith Granger made a special appearance to introduce the film. Listen to the interview with her while she was in town.

Road Rage Racer

Work out your shifting hand and your funny bone with our Road Rage Racer figure. Turn the key, and as the lights on his base flash, this bug-eyed, wild-haired dude starts twitching and doing a demented impression of an idling racecar. Grab the shifter and slam into first, and he rocks on his stand and revs up his lip-flapping imitation. Shift into second and third, and his shaking gets worse while his voice bangs off his imaginary rev limiter. When he’s had enough, throw him into reverse for a tire-squealing slide to a stop! The 7.5" tall Racer just needs 3 AA batteries (included) to get the laughs rolling.

The Remote Controlled Tarantula.

This remote-control tarantula scurries across flat surfaces like an actual arachnid, moving forwards, backwards, and rotates 360°. It has a hairy exterior, similar to the urticating hairs that cover a tarantula's abdomen and serve as defense mechanisms against predators, and the spider's eight legs move independently and the eyes light up, allowing you to frighten unsuspecting arachnophobes day or night. Remote requires two AA batteries and tarantula requires two AAA batteries. Ages 6 and up.

The James Bond Remote Controlled Stunt Car.

This is the radio controlled car that reproduces the same evasive banking maneuver executed by iconic British Secret Service agent 007. Faithfully replicating an Aston Martin DBS V12, Mr. Bond's preferred vehicle from later installments of the famous espionage movie series, the car has a small wheel that extends from the right undercarriage at your command, lifting the right front and rear wheels off the ground, enabling you to evade obstacles. A second button on the remote makes the car pop wheelies or shoot up a ramp. A press of a button plays the classic "James Bond" theme to taunt would-be pursuers. With forward, backward, left, and right directional control; working front lights.
