Big things with little cars
Big things with little cars

Once again, I'm browsing eBay, and I decided to look for some used diecast cars that aren't in the best condition.

Below, you'll find a selection of those cars, and I'd like to see if you guys would try to customize it, leave it as is, or toss it. If you choose customize it, feel free to share how you would customize it.

First is this Ford GT90, in it's Future Series 2000 form. As you can see, it's in pretty rough shape, lots of paint gone, corroded axles, and some scratched windows.

Next is a Maisto Dodge Viper that's in similar condition to the GT90. Lots of paint gone, scratched windshield/windows, and this one's missing a rear wing.

This Dodge Sidewinder was part of the 2006 Hot Trucks 5-Pack, and it appears this one's certainly seen better days.

Here's a Hot Wheels NASCAR Ford Taurus that was offered in Happy Meals in 1998, one of four cars (including a Mac Tonight version).

This one had some tampos, while the rest were stickers that came with the car. Not all of the stickers are on here, and what is there are in bad shape.

Surprisingly, there appears to be little corrosion on the axles, so those might be reusable.

Mustang fans might like to try their hand at this 1999 Mustang. It's in very rough shape, window piece isn't in place, axles are probably too far gone.

We're not done with Mustangs. Here's another '99, but it's a Matchbox Mustang convertible.

This one doesn't appear to have ANY paint on it left, and the windshield is probably not salvageable. The body, on the other hand, looks like it can easily be saved.

Lastly, we have a Hot Wheels '67 Camaro. It's probably in the worst physical condition of all of these, with a damaged hood and roof.

It might be possible to fix the hood, or a donor might be needed. The roof could be fixed, or it could be chopped up to make way for T-tops or chopped off completely to make a convertible.

The casting was introduced in 1983 and is still in production, having been included in the Cool Classics line last year, so donor cars are probably easy to come across.

So, seven eligible candidates. Which ones would you save and customize? Which would you leave as is? Which do you think are too far gone and could be scrapped?
