V-Stock didn’t have much selection, but I picked these up. 99¢ except the HotWheels 500 was 199¢ still a good deal.
Happy Spaghetti Sunday!
I got to spend the afternoon with a friend I don’t see nearly enough.
I just bought a house and am busy unpacking. I decided to put some of my bigger diecast and lego kits on a bookcase so I can actually seen them. Pardon the potato pics and the dust. I am still trying to get things sorted.
With jacks, blocks, tools, etc...
My last Alfa in 1:43, the 1998 Alfa Spider, from the diecast section of New Ray. Now, I don’t want to start an argument, so, as a VW guy, I’ll say, “Everyone makes an Eos sooner or later.”
For anyone who appreciates the fine lines of an Italian classic motorcar company, I will say:
Today, we have here this Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat from Hot Wheels.
They finally have hit some Wal-Marts.....well at least around my neck of the woods. I only bought the 4 I like.
If this is the scale that lets me collect kei cars then so be it. I snagged this for 10 bucks on eBay which, for a J-Collection model, seems like a steal. If anyone knows what other kei cars come in 1/43 please let me know, my specific searches turn up naught.
Another of my Yatmings sees daylight again, one by one they’ll all get their 15 minutes of fame.
The base on this Chevy spells it Streetrat, all one word, but I don’t believe that is correct, so I did it my way.
The Fiat says 1:55 on the base, so it’s a bit bigger than what it probably should be. It’s all good, though.
Well, I don’t really know what the F-Type falls under, but, might as well include it with the Aventador, and, my favorite, the 675LT.
Lesney Matchbox time is here again. It’s been awhile since we have examined a Lesney Matchbox example of an American car, and this is about as American as it gets. Today we take a look at Matchbox 27c, the Cadillac Sixty Special. This casting entered the range in 1960, and had a fairly long run, remaining until…
Here’s a very basic Progetto K Alfa Romeo Giulia GTV as raced in the 1972 24-hours at Spa-Francorchamps, Belgium. Driven by Jean Ragnotti and Jean-Claude Andruet, the #42 GTV finished third in Division 2.
Here is my take on the 32.
For Rising Sunday I present a customized Datsun Fairlady done to look like Reidus’ infamous datsun.
Matchbox is continuing the double variations on the Nissan skyline!
Was fixing some boxes in the attic recently when I saw this in a corner. I dusted it off, wiped it clean, and put some oil on the wheels... and its now back to rolling again on those 6 RR wheels. This ‘Atari’ GMC Motorhome (from 2011) is from the Pop Culture series of Hotwheels. (pic)
Yesterday I went out to TJMaxx in search for the rumored Majorette cars. No luck. Not wanting to waste the trip, we hit a couple of thrift stores and I scored something totally unexpected! A #77 Jasper hat signed by Dave Blaney himself.
