HWEP with Spridget and Childhood Estate Reclaimed Photodump! (massive amount of cars...)

Spridget and I got our second HWEP completed. Pair that with snagging all my old beaters from my parents attic this weekend... and I have a dungload of cars to take pictures of! I’ll lead off with this Greenlight Chevy because it’s absolutely awesome. Thank you Sir Spridget!

This Vauxhall will get a resto-mod. I love the design of this car. Wifi repair vans will be robbed of their wireless wheels.

The Scion Xb started this trade. It needs a little work. But, I think I am going to make a custom to match our 1:1 right down to the stickers and license plates. This corgi Ambulance needs some work. But, its amazing. I am definitely going to take it apart and re wire all the lights. I am happy to restore this amazing car. Also got a couple of Lesney random act of kindness cars. Thank you! These will be great donors for projects.

And... Onto the massive HAWL of my childhood collection. Bear in mind I LOVED diecast cars as a kid. These cars were the core of my fun times for most of my younger years! Most of them are pretty beat up! lol

First off is the four Tomicas I had to my name. I am so happy to be reunited with the Landcruiser. It was, by far, one of my most favorite Diecast cars to play with as a kid. I am glad it held up well being in storage for 30 years.

Takara Penny Racers and a few other weird pullback cars. The Turbo ZX has a shifter and you can choose what gear you want the car to take off in.
