Craigslist HAWL (massive trade bait)

Illustration for article titled Craigslist HAWL (massive trade bait)

Found this massive hawl on a local craigslist. Apparently a couple kids no longer played with these, and play with LEGO instead. So mom as sold them to buy more LEGO. Never saw the kids, but they seem to have good taste in cars. I got 120+ cars for under 50/cents per car.

I mostly bought it for a small number of cars I really wanted, so these are mine, all mine (muwahaha?):

The three vintage race cars were what made this lot a must-have. I don’t know why, but I became obsessed the moment I saw them.

These are the want to haves (mostly as wheel donors). I could be convinced to trade them for the right cars, or for cars with the same MBX hubcap or knockoff wheels.
