Sly and the Family Stallone News for the Week:
Our POW [Picture of the Week] is a shot of Sly from Death Race 2000. You can see a much larger version of the photo by clicking on it.
Alex Maidy at Joblo.com posted his choices for the Top Ten Car Racing Movies. There are a few surprising choices (Cannonball Run? Talladega Nights?) and some expected ones.
I’m happy to say that Sly Stallone made the list. My first thought would have been Driven, but actually it was for Death Race 2000.
Click over and see Maidy’s full list and his comments on each.

My guess is you’ll know every single one of the facts, but it is still worth a click-over for the Youtube video links. – Craig
Mike Torrance aka The Krayola Kidd is back and he’s brought Sly as Machine Gun Joe Viterbo from Death Race 2000 with him! Over the coming weeks/months I’ll be posting more of Mike’s sketch card commissions. My goal is to eventually get a card for every character Sly has played. We’re well on our way!
You can see more of Mike’s art at his Deviant Art site. Mike is available for commissions and his prices are very reasonable.
