I've played a few NEED FOR SPEED games over the years, so the prospect of a big-screen version has always been intriguing, yet puzzling as to how they'd pull it off. On March 14, audiences Nationwide will get the answer, when DreamWorks Pictures' NEED FOR SPEED hits theater screens in RealD, 3D and other large formats. Earlier tonight, a "Big Game" spot hit the airwaves, while an extended look hit the web. Check out both of them below, right here on The Rock Father...

Rides: The KIA GT4 STINGER is Coming...

An email just hit my inbox from KIA Motors America with a sneak-preview of their new KIA GT4 STINGER. Powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine that provides 315 horsepower to the rear wheels, this new ride is set to debut at the Detroit Auto Show in a couple of weeks, and I hope to see it first-hand at the Chicago Auto Show next month. Take a look at the pitch, along with the full teaser image below...

worxtoys125One of the coolest toys to roll in here this season is the Throttle Motorcycle from Worx Toys' EduTech line. Had it been earlier in the year, I would've covered this one in my "Rock Father Rides" section, but the uniqueness of these vehicle has it firmly planted right here in my 2013 Holiday Gift Guide. Coming from a company that was founded by a trio of Dads with inquisitive kids, the EduTech line goes beyond a standard plaything and offers kids a genuine educational experience by teaching them about basic functions of the rides they love. In the case of Throttle, we have a speedy motorcycle with a transparent casing that through lights, sounds, and an accompanying book, explores everything from headlights to transmission.

I'm not quite sure how we missed this here at Rock Father HQ - this news item being penned by a guy that wears a CARS LAND Racing Jacket almost daily - but CARS 3D exists, and was just released today as the CARS 3D ULTIMATE COLLECTOR'S EDITION Blu-ray... making me wish we had a player to support it. Check out some details and a preview below...

I know you don't want to hear it, but here's some reality. As I type this, there are only 78 days until Christmas. Yes, as people may complain about the "Christmas Creep," make no mistakes, and don't let the holidays creep up on you. They're practically here, and once November hits, families will be hitting the road for Thanksgiving gatherings, Fall Harvest, and X-mas aside... Hanukkah actually starts on Thanksgiving this year! As someone that has had two separate auto malfunctions on Thanksgiving two years in a row (2010 and 2011), getting the cars ready for the holiday season with a little preventative maintenance is something I'm big on here at Rock Father HQ. That said, my friends at Hankook Tires and I have gotten together to dish out a few tips for getting your ride ready to rock the road this Fall... and into the Holiday Season.

When it was announced earlier this year that MEGA Brands had entered into a partnership with Mattel for some Hot Wheels-branded building sets, the Rock Father Radar immediately lit-up with some new rides planted firmly upon it. Now, just in time for Fall, the new line of MEGA BLOKS Hot Wheels is hitting stores, and within the assortment is the SUPER BLITZEN MONSTER TRUCK Set. The folks at MEGA Bloks had one delivered to Rock Father HQ for evaluation in our State-of-the-Art Toy Testing Facility (our house), and this is how it fared...
