This post wouldn’t have happened without the generosity of The Bell King, he ROAK’d this Ultra Red Auto World Ford Galaxie 500 XL - a chase piece - in our previous trade.

Our HWEP was a no-brainer, TBK has access to the 1:64 Auto World pieces I adore, and I can easily find the Tomica Premium items that he wants in my area. A trade across the Pacific was in order, nothing fills me with joy more than a box of Aws, especially when I receive something extra special.

I’m a huge fan of ‘60s American muscle and the Ford Galaxie 500 XL ticks all the right boxes with its hood power dome, and clean creases that attenuate its huge imposing body. It’s a cruiser that can do little bruisin’ if there’s ever a need to leave someone in your dust.

I’m always fascinated by why well Auto World 1:64 pieces stand up to the unforgiving lenses of the camera. They look outstanding in your hands but even more spectacular in photographs. I’ll never tire of collecting and may there be more HWEPs to acquire more of them in the future.
