HWEP/Hawl

So it's been a busy week for me regarding HWEPs and some online hauls. It all started when I was bidding on a redline from 1974 and a McLaren F1 GTR and lost both bidding wars...I then went a bit nuts trying to make up for it. First, let's get to some hauls!!

From Eddie:

I've been wanting that GTO wagon for a long time, and man is it freakin sweet. It even has a dog hangin out the back!!!

Next, Eddie knows I am doing school that involves space-stuff, so here's a Peterbilt truck supporting some Shuttle mission! Pretty damn cool.

Next I have these two sweet guys from Frosted. A Testarossa ... in RED... checked off my list now! Thanks! Also a MBX Opel Calibra...with World Cup '98 livery! I don't know if Frosted knew this, but I'm all about the World Cup (and a Germany fan, which was sweet this summer!!) and the '98 World Cup is the first cup I actually remember watching! nice for France to win it at home.

Thanks guys!

Ok, now the hauls:

Found this pair and had to have them. I love how they put "rust" on the paint job (feels like it too!) Also let's try and play "what's the original casting?". I'm guessing R2D2 was the Go-Kart and C-3PO was the Drag Bus (pretty obvious on C-3PO).

Never seen this wagon before, and it's really sweet. The livery is what got me.

Finally I have this Mooneyes Cool-One. I bought an Atari-themed one of these for my Secret Super and knew I would want one some day. This guy popped up for cheap and I love the Mooneyes livery.

I also have a regular red 599xx and a Redline 1974 Ferrari 312P coming my way soon....I'm hoping all of this holds me over to at least spring break...hopefully summer...

The prices on all of these were nice on EBay, so it was hard to resist especially when almost everything seems marked-up nowadays.
