In The Search for Kühl Toys, Sometimes You Hit the Jackpot and Sometimes….

The Search for Kühl Toys is a long and dusty trail.  When the road is paved and clear, Kühl Toys just don’t exist.  At least most of the time.  We have stumbled upon the new Mercedes SLS being road tested and found a few things you might see next season.

But every once in a while you see what should be a Kühl Toy only to find that… Well, it isn’t.BMW who knows what spy shot copyright 2017 Kelly Bourquin

That happened to us yesterday.  While on the road in search of a new Kühl Toy we spotted the very distinctive kidney grill of a BMW with a camo cover over the BMW logo.  Look at this picture and you tell me how well they hid this turd.  From the way the car was parked and our vantage point, we couldn’t see what it was so we rushed over to check it out.  It was like a kid thinking he saw the ice cream man was around the corner only to find it was the dog catcher.

Sadly we found that BMW was testing what looked like a bad image of a Mercedes B-Class.  Why would BMW copy the ugliest Benz?  As an electric car the boxy B-Class isn’t a bad looking car, but it isn’t a good looking car and it clearly isn’t a Kühl Toy.  Sitting right next to a supercool Mini Countryman S, the new BMW is just downright odd.

Keep in mind that we think the BMW 3 series wagon or “estate” as the brits call them is one of the coolest grocery getters out there.  It holds ski’s, surfboards and your dog.  The thing we saw, not likely.
You tell us what you think, but this is a car we aren’t even going to accept for testing at Kühl Mini Cooper Rear View 2018 Spy Shot Kelly BourquinToys, even if it’s free.  Maybe we would let an intern use it to get us coffee, but not with the KühlToys logo on it that is for sure.  That mini countryman, we’d like to play with.  Drop it, tint it, surfboard rack it, and you might just have a cool toy er Kühl Toy.

Kühl Toys – All the stuff you want to buy but need to hide from your wife in a secret warehouse!

I test it, try it, live with it and then show you what happened.  When the idea started it was Tech-Tach-Dough, all the things that guys want to talk about that make their wives nuts.  At least mine thinks I am nuts.  We are in the process of building this website, and the truth is the process will never end.  The good news is that the first video is up and you can watch it by clicking here.

As soon as the editors finish creating the new intro scene, we’ll start loading episodes regularly.  We have some great stuff already “in the can” as they say in Hollywood.

Tech things like Cellular watches, and not those things that connect to your cell phone, we mean real Dick Tracy Style cellular watches that you can talk and text from without a cell phone hanging around.  A great way to leave the phablet at home and still stay in touch or keep up with the game.

I even tried to take some “Waterproof” cell watches surfing.  After all what better way to be out of the office?  Watch the episode and see how it worked out.

Nothing is perfect

We also put Alexa and Echo through the ringer, yep we found Alexa’s breaking point and she found mine.  If I can find it, I’ll buy it, install it and see what it really does.

Want to play drums in the garage but the neighbors complain?  Check out the episode on Acoustibloc.  We built a room so quiet the street was being torn up and we could still record in it.  My neighbor, a lead singer in a Rock band belted out a few notes and no one at the party knew he was in the room.  You don’t want to miss that one.

I’ve been in the Tech and Toy business for over 20 years, and now I am going to let you in on the secrets!

On the adventure side of the Kühl Toys world, how about the inside scoop from a GT Cup racing team.  We have exclusive access to a Pirrelli World Challenge Championship racing team and we’ll show you what it really takes to race a car and not lose your insurance.

My first car is the red 1968 Mustang GT you see at the top.  No I don’t still have it, but I haven’t slowed down yet.

Come back hang out and let me know what you think.
