Sizzlers News March 25, 2008:
Acquired some new prototypes. Details and photos forthcoming. Also have many more cars to add to the "Latest Additions" page. Also getting ready for the fall 2008 Convention. Woo-Hoo! Looks like all the Sizzlers are gone from the Target stores now. Rumor has it at the "Dollar Stores" you can still find cars. I did pick up a few cars and Power Pits on clearance before they were all gone. Well, it was nice while it lasted! I'm glad Mattel did this because my nephews got to relive the kind of fun I had when I was a kid.

Sizzlers News January 13, 2007:
Take a look around the site. I am completely restructuring the entire site, including re-photographing most of the cars. There has not been an update to my website like this ever. There will be literally HUNDREDS of new photographs, new car additions, new info and much more when the re-vamp is complete. Many photos were substandard, and information was out of date. So, stay tuned to this page for more updates as they are available.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS FROM SIZZLERKING! I hope that there are a lot of young kids getting SIZZLERS for Christmas this year! Mattel is releasing more new colors of the RI Sizzlers. Just got a Blue Live Wire and Copper Angelino today. Have seen a Silver Camaro too.
For those who don't know, I DID attend the 20th Annual Hot Wheels Convention in Irvine this year. I placed first in Sizzlers Long battery Competition, and the "Ghetto Van" which I prepped placed third in the short battery competition. Two of my cars also placed second and third in the children's competition.
So, a decent showing for Sizzlerking, considering that I wasn't there last year. I have also picked up a few more prototypes and pre-production cars too. So, photos coming . . . I'll also write a full-report of the convention after the holidays. Have a good one!!!!!!!

Working on again updating this site. I have a LOT of stuff that has passed through my hands in the last couple of years that I want to get on here. So, get ready for some new items FINALLY! I also added a new section called Events. Click on the link in the navigation bar to the left to check it out.
Hey, hey! I'm coming out of hiding. I will be doing a seminar and helping with the Sizzlers races at the Texas Regionals June 2nd - 5th here in San Antonio. So, if you want a car, or need some work done for this event, contact me ASAP! See you there!
Well, another year has come and gone. I have moved the Sizzlerking operation back to San Antonio. This site will still be maintained, but I am focusing on other things at the moment. The '04 Irvine convention was pretty fun, although I didn't get to race. Got a couple of Mexican Sizzlers and a sealed Lamborghini. Sold a lot too. Did meet a few other Mattel employees from the old days. Was a great time.
