Another big truck from Germany, literally.
This is one of the things about this hobby that I hate. Why do people always make a mess? I feel sorry for the workers and I bet they despise hot wheels collectors. If you’re a grown man and you’re making a mess then shame on you. Anyway, I don’t collect American cars so I didn’t really pay attention to this series…
Before Hot Wheels lost their way, there was a time when they built both outrageous cars, and pretty life like trucks that you could run outside, and dig one minature scoop at a time. I can honestly say I easily went through a few dozen of these things, and after rummaging through a box I got from my parents attic, I’m…
This is my first post here so please, don’t get mad if I mess up >.<
A grail came in time for my birthday...
It’s finally full. I’ve been anxious to find Euro Speed to admire the full case.
Where women glow, and men plunder,
LaLD ///May week kicks off tomorrow morning! Post ALLLLL the BMW’s!
Went out today to see if I could dig up some diecast treasures at yard sales. All of these cars were in a $1 per car bucket. The Zylmex Dome-O is definitely the star of the bunch in my opinion. Can’t beat the crazy wedge design!
I saw this nice article regarding Hot Wheels’s 50th Anniversary and would like to share it.
I also want to get the Lee Petty Oldsmobile.
Over the last year, I have gotten my hands on full sets of some of the recent 2016/2017 premium Hot Wheels series. However space at home is at a premium. So I want to trade a few of the cars from these sets in exchange for cars I missed (listed further down).
Today I am showcasing my 1/43 scale 1954 Corvette Nomad wagon show car. It’s made in England and is part of a series called The Great American Dream Machine Vol2. My dad bought this wagon new to expand his collection of 1/43 scale American cars from the 50s and 60s.
I had a bit of a mail call this week. I’m really impressed by the Charger Daytonas from Ertl and their opening trunk feature. Anyway, this fed my muscle car appetite... for now;) Oh, and I made a shovel, too:D I wanna start making some more things in 1/64 scale. I’ve always been fascinated with miniatures.

I wish I had diecasts of these! Oh well, I guess digital versions will do for now. Test and tune session with some of my favorite Porsches in the Alps.
Some time ago I discovered this diecast on ebay. I decided to buy the model for a few bucks, because a vehicle with UPS paint was missing in my collection.
So, I found a cool piece when I was home visiting my parents. Its an old crusher yard that I had as a kid. I thought I’d turn it into a good place to grab some pics of some of my scummier cars. Ratty cars are more fun to build anyway. Mistakes can just become friendly little shrubs *cue Bob Ross vid here*
Just a harmless little fish called a Barracuda :D
