Lopped the roof off this Hot Wheels to make a convertible.
So stoked to have this first edition added to the collection. As was mentioned earlier today, checking one more off the list! Hillclimb vehicles for the win!
I have to say this has been probably the best round of HWEP transactions since I started collecting. Here are just a few of the trades I received from you guys. For those that didn’t trade monetary transactions were prompt and generous. Long live HWEP!
Ive been seeing many of these floating around eBay. I want one. But does anybody know who makes it, is it anything close to the pictures? Is it worth $100 like most vendors are charging (this ibe is $60 but with 0 feedback so maybe not a smart buy) Really any info would be great, it looks unbranded to me.
Sorry guys, I’m going to have to postpone our July event for Lamborghini week. I’ve been slammed with work since I first announced it, so I have yet to take my Lambo’s out of their boxes, let alone take pictures.
I was very young when I learned the primary and secondary color wheel. Now, I’m older and I’m putting it to use. I’m not going to learn to use RIT dye (yet) when I can use transparent paint (which used to be called “candy” paint) to mix my colors.
Various items from unreported hunts from the last couple of months, or so...
*if these were the genuine articles and not just toys.
It’s quite German and quite teal.
Off Road All of the Things On Friday!!
Let’s start with the HWEP. It’s always good to find what you’re looking for.
I don’t know how you guys operate, but for me in this hobby I have certain lists. One of them is a list of “white whales” so to speak. Castings so pricey, rare, or all of the above one could honestly argue if they were ever sold as a mainline in the first place. For me a few of those include the original Veyron,…
This iHWEP was months in the making between Xin and I. We began with a chase trade - his Greenlight Mecum Auctions Mopar for my Auto World Ultra Red Lead Sled. From there, we started talking about what was readily available at stores where we live, and why not expand this to include items that were easy for each of us…
I feel like I’m in bit of a sharing slump lately. One reason I felt like offering all my hoard recently, to par down and focus on what I have. I feel like I haven’t been collecting that long but I think all of us go through that phase eventually. Slow down, focus and appreciate.
Greenlight and Tarmac Works seem to be holding up their deal into 2018, with the release of this new retooling of Greenlight’s R34 Skyline cast with the livery of the NISMO Pennzoil JGTC Skyline used in the 1999 racing season. This is a limited edition release that I was lucky enough to grab from a friend who runs a…
Hot Wheels 50th Anniversary Race Team ‘70 Pontiac Firebird.
Here is my biggest TLV hawl to date and I didnt have to wait weeks for it. This is courtesy of our very own boxy car guy Frosted. Not sure if I will ever be able to top this box. Why send money to Japan when LaLd can help feed the addiction.
In other news, I still can’t afford to go. But enough about me, we’re all waiting to see what news comes for 2019, and when to expect some of the stuff they’d announced during the 2017 Gathering. :)
This was a spectraflame 4x4 Ford with chipped paint and bent axles. Now it is stripped and slammed on 50th anniversary wheels.
Update - $kay has asked that, instead of giving her a gift, we donate the money to St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital (because, of course, she’s just that thoughtful and sweet). I’ll keep taking donations through Monday if you’d like to show her some love. And it’s for the children!
