GIT YOUR GOAT
It’s been an exciting few weeks for us on the web. Our social media channels have been humming, and with all the new releases, we’ll have more video on deck as you read this. Your feedback and response to our quick-moving, high-definition reviews on both the Die Cast X website and our You Tube channel means that we’ll be doing
more and more — so keep watching! Also, remember that DCXmag.com is still the place
to go for new release info, bonus photos, and the latest DCX videos. You can comment on
what you see — and tell us what you’d like to see — with a couple of simple mouse clicks.
We check it every day, so jump on and let us hear what you have to say.
Want to join the fun in “real time”? Our biweekly
live show, Cup O’ Joe, has been enjoying an
upswing in viewership, and as we approach
200,000 viewer minutes, we’ve been seeing
some new faces on the chat, and hearing from
collectors as far away as Bulgaria, Brazil, and
Turkey. It’s that feedback and participation that
makes the show so much fun. We’ve fielded requests for models to be brought on the air, and
we’ve been bringing the cars you want to see —
both brand-new and classic releases — on camera. Collectors on popular message boards like
Hobby Talk ( hobbytalk.com), Scale 18 (scale18.
com), and more have been chiming in, and
spreading the word, too — so check it out, and
join us every other Sunday at 11 a.m. EST.
Our Facebook page ( facebook.com/Di-
eCastXMag) has exploded, and as we close in on
5,000 likes, we want to remind you to join in soon
and to take part in our “Git Your Goat” giveaway
— a chance to win a trio of long out-of-produc-
tion Highway 61 GTOs that we discovered in a
back closet at the Air Age o;ces in Connecticut.
Once we dusted the hard-to-find models o;, we
decided to give them to one lucky collector. ;at
lucky collector could be you. All you need to do is
“like” the Die Cast X Facebook page, and you’re in
the running. Already “like” it? No sweat — you’re
already in! And here’s the best part: if we hit
5,000 “likes” by the time we close the contest
(August 1), our own editor in chief will give away a
one-of-a-kind pre-production prototype of the
Highway 61 GTO — straight out of his collection
— with a Certificate of Authenticity and a copy of
the magazine it was featured in to another lucky
collector. We’ll announce the winner — hopefully,
winners — on August 4. Git liking.
If you’ve got a model car website, like to blog, or just want
to join a growing community of diecast collectors, stop in to
Facebook, DCXmag.com, or live with Cup O’ Joe. Post a few
pictures, talk about your collection, and above all, introduce
yourself. We’d like to meet you.
