I figured that if I am going to get into customizing diecast cars... I’m going to need parts. Right? As long as the lot has a sufficient amount of Lesneys, I am a happy camper.

64-something cars for $20. Quite a few junkers... but a pleasing amount of gems.

The Matchbox cars are pretty beat up. Love the Ford Escort Rally car. I face-palmed at the “sun burner”... Nice looking cast with a terrible paintjob. This will be another lamb to the pine-sol slaughter. The bimmer is sadly bulky and disproportionate. Porsche 959 is pretty cool. I am going to have fun customizing the Charger Police car. Also present is the saddest BMC diecast known to mankind. :(

These amusingly gimmicky cars really took me back to my childhood. The firebird is a simple pull-back racer. The Porsche and the GTS “stiletto lol” are Key racers. That vette? ohhhhhhh.... I forgot about these.

Stiletto...

Want to take your diecast ‘vette to school but you don’t the other kids to steal it? Well! You can lock all four wheels and put the key in your pocket. If those punks swipe it. They are not going to have much fun. This was the elementary school equivelent of “the club”.

Maisto Merc. and a few Playart/Kidco cars.

The 308 isn’t too bad. Doesn’t look like anyone wanted to play with it... ever. Poor kid didn’t aspire to be a Coke dealer in California I guess.

Mixed in this lot is a random Dubz Jada. Not my thing... But those wheels might be pretty sweet on a Lesney!

Johnny Lightning Hairy Hauler. I kinda like it... But I am eyeballing those engines to put on customs. Tough call. I’ll probably leave it alone or re-sell on eBay. It’s in decent shape and doesn’t really deserve to be cannibalized.

Racecars. Hotwheels and random stockers.

The Nissan Z has about 10 coats of white paint that is dirty as all hell. I’ve always liked the Z. So this is going to get a proper clean paintjob after a pine-sol bath.

No-name Martini Porsche in atrocious condition.

Jobjoris... I have a sparkly candy bar ducktail that is itching to head your way.

Rough around the edges... but nice paint for a no-name diecast.

Couple of vette’s

The Yatming intern that had to name this car got lazy.

More cheapy 80's era casts.

I don’t recall stock Audi’s having painjobs like this.

The intern for this diecast company didn’t even bother to name this “Lamborghini Racer”... It just reads “china” on the bottom.

Old Bugs.

This el Camino is going to get a rightous resto-mod. It is heavily played with... and I totally understand. It’s too awesome NOT to play with.

Stutz Bearcat. The shiniest Firebird ever and a fiero with patriotic livery.

A nomad with bizarre stretched wheel-wells. Uglier than sin. Vette with ok paintjob.

Fantasy cars. Totally not my thing... Theses will be ripped of their wheels and sent to the boiling pot for scrap.

All your wheels are belong to me.

Ahhhhh... now we get to the cream of the Oreo. Lesneys <3 <3 <3

All trashed beyond belief. The ‘stang is decent and deserves a resto-mod. Maybe the Lincoln too. The rest are wheel donors.

Thankfully, there was a pair of keepers in the box. I do not have this lovely Mercedes in my collection and it’s in terrific shape. The GT is in great condition too! It will replace the one in my collection that is missing a wheel. Much joy.

Needs a buff and a shine.

Thanks for looking! Hope you enjoyed the trip down memory lane with a bunch of these. Now I have to bust out my dremel tool and rob some wheels off these junkers.
