Attic Finds!

The good stuff! The Chrome Crackup appears to be rare...
The good stuff! The Chrome Crackup appears to be rare...

I’ve been a collector all my life, and have managed to hold onto the vast majority of the cars I had as a kid. Over the last few years, I’ve managed to find most of them and integrate them into my collection, but I knew there was some that I never found. After I moved into my house 15 years ago, my parents somewhat unceremoniously brought most of my childhood items to my house and deposited them into my attic, and those deliveries have yielded some interesting stuff. But again, I knew some weren’t there…particularly a gold Buzz Off, and a gold Spoiler Sport (that one came to mind after some discussion here last week about the Spoiler Sport) but I figured those would never turn up. Then last night, while digging out some gifted corningware from said attic, I moved a basket, noticed it contained a bag, and lo and behold, jackpot! Both goldies, and some Lock Ups I knew I had, and some other forgotten items. So here they are. I’m not actively looking to trade any of these, but if anything here really strikes anyones fancy or is particularly desired by anyone, I may consider something.
