Alright, guys. This is probably gonna be a long post.
I'll start with my little HAWL that I had at Walmart today.
They finally stocked in some F batch cars, but there was barely anything new left by the time I got there.
So, I ended up leaving the store with a trio of pretty cool cars.
First up is this E batch '69 Camaro, which I've been looking pretty hard for. It's a 'Then and Now car, and goes with the Camaro Convertible Concept which comes out soon.
Then, a pair of F batch cars, starting with this Nissan 370Z. This one goes with the Datsun 240Z that came out a couple batches ago, which I do own.
Lastly, I found the new Lamborghini Huracán. Very nice casting, could use a little more tampo detail, but it looks really good.
Now, let's get to some real serious stuff. M2 Machines Auto-Haulers.
This is a 1957 Dodge 700 COE.
And this is a 1957 Dodge 700 COE with a car carrier trailer.
And here's the carrier holding two M2 Machines cars, a 1957 Volkswagen Beetle Deluxe and a 1970 Ford Mustang Boss 429.
I've had the Mustang for a while, in fact I've shown it on here in the past. Turns out, it's a little defective, with the rear bumper panel not even being in place. It can be taken right off with very little effort, but will stay in place if not touched.
The Beetle, on the other hand, is new, having come with the truck.
It's very nicely detailed, too.
Front and rear open up, though the rear doesn't open that much and it's not easy to get a good look at the engine.
And this is the grand opening of a new Ford dealership, which is my new display. It's basically supposed to take place in late 1970, with the new 1971s coming in.
Welcome to Fairside Ford. Currently, the inventory only consists of two new Fords in the showroom, the '70 Boss 429 and a '71 Maverick Grabber.
The small lot next to the showroom will end up becoming a new car lot, but currently holds two used Fords, with other brands of used cars across the street. The Dodge 700 COE hauler just dropped off some of the used cars seen in that lot.
It's a new business, but I'm sure they'll grow in the future (hopefully I'll get more cars that I can display loose to add to this display, as I'm hesitant to DLM any of my carded cars).
