Welp. 22WardBurtonTrain22 got me all excited about 1:24 Scale NASCAR again... God have mercy on my PayPal account. I took a good long look at my collection and tried to find a hole, a missing piece, a gap where my driver admiration was not represented. It didn’t take me long to realize that I STILL didn’t have anything that represents the legendary road course ace Boris Said. Inexcusable! I took care of that in a jiff.
I really really wanted one of these like 10 years ago. But, I usually wait for some cars to depreciate in value so I don’t have to shell out the full $60. Yep I am a cheap b*****d. Did I mention that I just bought Madden for my Ps4 the other day?... the 2017 version... I found it on the clearance rack at TJMaxx for $2. So, yep, I will patiently wait and sacrifice in the name of thrift.
But, the tough thing about Boris said. He was so dang popular for so long even after he stopped driving regularly in NASCAR. Sheesh. As his name faded into obscurity, the cars finally started to drop in price over the past few years. So, I managed to score this one for a very attractive $18+shipping <3.
This is his 2006 car that he raced twice (Mexico and Watkins Glen) for Everham Motorsports in the Busch series. Boris was (still is) the MAN! Always a great interview and just an overall awesome human being. I loved watching him race even when he tried some of the oval tracks here and there. I am super happy to finally have this one in my collection. Aside from a slight deterioration on the front grille, this Action Motorsports Authentics car has a ton of awesome details. Just amazing all around.
Hat tip to 22WBT22 for bringing some more NASCAR excitement to LaLD. I enjoy collecting these 1:24 scale cars too. But, I never seem to get around to photographing them. That will have to change soon.
