... To say the least. I finally managed to secure a holy grail of mine, the Matchbox Canadian Automobile Association (CAA) truck. Well, that’s what I thought.
Unfortunately I was never able to find one in the wild. Only paid $2.70 per car shipped, so not the worst scalp in the world, but still.
My latest ebay purchase arrived last night. Here’s another teaser. The wheel should give this one away easy...
Well, there goes the rest of my PayPal account...
Sorry for the double post, but wanted to share this as well. I nabbed this from the fleabay for less than a Tooney! Even taking into account exchange rate. No, I’m also not Canadian but I go there for work sometimes so and I can’t help but smile when talking about the crazy things you kanucks call your currency.
For the many Americans on this site, here’s a potential deal for one of the most desirable Lesney Edition releases.
Enginerrrrrrrrr was liquidating some of his collection on eBay, so I picked up a few things. Is it possible to over HAWL? I didn’t think so!
I tried to get the eBay Garuntee started but since seller marked March 24 arrival date I have to wait until then to give a benefit of a doubt. You can now say it.... but as stated then, I’ve spent more on less.
If you aren’t going to accept an offer $3 less than your asking price, don’t have Make an Offer an option!
While casually browsing eBay, I came across something I never expected to exist: a diecast of the Ford EXP coupe.
Just a couple days ago, a few more of my eBay purchases came in the mail.
OH LAWD JESUS IT’S A MONZA. And it’s $25 (including shipping), and it’s begging for a custom paint job. Other, complete models go for $60 shipped. Do I dare bid?
My second round of eBay purchases came in the mail over the past two weeks, though I only got around to writing all of them up and photographing them now.
While browsing eBay (mostly for older Majorettes, Matchbox, and Tomica), I came across this Plymouth Voyager model, which appears to be a dealer promo.
... And a quick search on Google and HobbyDB reveals no information about them.
I was finally able to snag a red Matchbox Alfa GTA for near normal prices! It looks great next to the white one.
