OH YES YES!! They’re mine!!

Well I’ll accept the Jeep is probably a truck as UTES!! should really have a bonnet or hood, depending on your planetary location. That is a minor detail anyway. Both of these are from the late 1950’s so they have survived pretty well, plus they don’t build ‘me like they used to. I just love these old casts!

I’ll get some better shots in the near future, most likely involving some ORAT action.

I almost didn’t bid on them as they had gone over what I was comfortable with but rembered some advice on a price estimate from Fintail, with his words in mind I placed a higher bid and won the auction! Thanks for the help there kind sir.
