Hey everybody,

 

I'm new to posting however long time reader,

 

I thought I'd share with you all my latest creation.

 

USB McQueen_rear

 

It all started when I had misplaced my old flash drive in work (and not for the first time) and it was my last one, so time to trawl the web for a reasonably priced one.

 

Sticking with my usual I went with Kingston, whilst I was purchasing the drive I noticed my daughter had made her way into my collection boxes (singles die-cast only) for fear of her opening the box and getting into my unopened singles collection I went to grab her and *bing* it hit me.

 

If only I could have a Disney Pixar Cars Die-cast USB Flash drive, i'd never misplace it again, my cars are like my pride and joy!!!

 

So after hard work and a giant mess here is the outcome :

 

Car and USB

 

Car Drive and PC

 

I then thought of how to display at home and decided i could get a USB extender lead and have my new McQueen Car Drive sit beside my PC flash away with that smile on his face.

and below are close ups of the read/write led and ontop of my dusty Xbox:

So there we have it my first (of many) USB Pixar Car's Flash Drive 🙂

 

Please let me know what you think, 

 

Happy collecting all!!!

Great idea! I might have to try this out myself. I'm always losing flash drives but never lose cars, so it would be perfect!

Thanks metro,

A few more ideas have come to mind just a matter of choosing the right die-casts,
