Hawl and Hwep

Let’s get right to it. First up is the hawl. Basically flea market finds at the antique mall but I had to see what was up with the baggies.

And the results were...

Not bad at all. The big one for me was the Mustang from around 1985. The rest are in good shape overall with the exception of the F-40 (bad front axle) the redline t-bucket (missing engine) and the truck missing whatever attachment was in the back. The yellow McDs X-11 racer is missing the rubber on the rear tires as well.

Next up, my hwep with R32rennsport.

The Porsche is awesome and I was missing that one. The Cougar is a RAOK! Thank you, R32! I also picked a few loose cars from him as well.

Spectraflame is a winner in my book. The Woody is really nice as is the Corvette! The Mercedes is a Corgi and while it is very nice, the wheels are way too small and it is way too big. Look at this thing!

Don’t get me wrong. This cast is awesome but I’m thinking a wheel swap may be in order. There was a specific car I wanted from R32.

A couple of things about this car. It’s the same car I sent to The Bell King. Sort of. This one had been wheel swapped without R32s knowledge. But he was kind enough to throw some new Minilites on her for me. Right wheels, right color, just missing the Firestone script on the tires. No big deal at all. Looks great! The other thing was the mention by R32 of a scuff on the roof revealing white. Knowing what I knew, I started taking the Sharpie off with a magic eraser to reveal the correct white roof. I will need to take some paint to it, but it looks better than before. And finally, this is a 1969 Ford Mustang Boss 302. Or at least it’s supposed to be.

1969 Boss 302's. Yep, thats correct.

Well, that’s different. The T/A would’ve had a different rear end, moving the fuel filler from the back, but this is a 1970 rear end. Interesting!

Well well well. One says its a 69, the other says 70. Hmmm. Very interesting!

I’m so thankful to have this car in my stable. It is a little rough, but I can take paint to it and not feel guilty either, which is one of the reasons I seriously wanted this car. I’ll feature it more as I restore it and add some extra details. Many thanks to R32rennsport for the awesome trade!

Thanks for looking!
