Big things with little cars
Big things with little cars

My cars from shop-teacher arrived in the mail yesterday. I got a Willys panel van dragster, Studebaker Champ, and AMC Rebel Machine! These are my first JLs and are excellent additions to my collection of dead brands.

Before I checked the mail yesterday, my wife and I had to pick up some medications. At the pharmacy I picked up this Maisto Fresh Metal Highway Hauler. It looks all plastic, but the cab is metal. I wanted this truck because it looked like it opened up, and I wanted to see what is inside. (Also, the trailer graphics are really fun.)

Nothing is inside, but there is a ton of space.

So, I put a truck on a truck on a truck, and two cars on the truck as well.

Here is a song in tribute to these awesome American cars from dead brands. (I was going to post Lars Frederiksen and the Bastard - Dead American, but maybe Robert Johnson - Terraplane Blues is a better fit.)
