I’m not adapting well to no internet at home; getting power back was great, but I need my internet!! Since I’m going to have to schlep to the library any time I want to connect, I intend to condense a few posts into one each time I have anything worth sharing. So,

Two weeks ago, I was dragged, literally kicking and screaming, to a flea thing.

My One Thing Du Jour was another CF for my small cf collection, but this one’s different. It’s the first pull back CF I’ve ever seen.

This one is a “Turbo” Bluebird; I’m guessing the pull back feature was the same as adding a turbo kit in 1:64 size.

I couldn’t find the yellow CF Levin for the family portrait, so these guys will sit for another one in the future.

Nice crisp CF 302 on the plate...

I’ve never seen a CF with so much text on the base...

One of my local diecast buds sent me this ERTL Plow truck because I was looking for exactly this set up; truck front wheels, double axle, dual wheels on the rear. Too bad they’re too big.
Moving on:

I picked this up on the bay for $2!

Unfortunately, Mr Dillweed shipped it in an envelope, a very thin plastic envelope. The card wasn’t creased right across the middle when I bought it...
I’ll probably DLM it soon and try another time for a momc.
I realize that I sound ungrateful after getting a great deal on the car, but I thought the card would be unbent.
Oh well...

This is a group of Vintage Redlines, the re-releases of previously re-released releases. Since taking this photo, I’ve found a turquoise “Red” Baron to add to the lot. Anyone interested?

Finally, for your time...
