I wanted to share some of the newest additions to my garage.

So I stumbled upon a 2016 Star Trek line of pop culture cars...
...and I managed to get all six! This set goes great with my 2014 Star Trek set, which is also MOC.
I was also able to complete the 2016 Johnny Lightning Release 1 sets, all six Classic Golds and all six Muscle Cars USA.
I got my first 2016 HW Entertainment car also, a 007 special, which are always welcome...
Daniel Craig’s ‘63 DB5 from Skyfall, which has the same license plate number as Sean Connery’s DB5 from Goldfinger back in 1964 (BMT 216A). Pierce Brosnan also drove one in GoldenEye in 1995 but the plate read BMT 214A.

A Greenlight Country Roads car, a ‘77 Dodge Royal Monaco.
My oldest brother’s first car was a ‘77 Royal Monaco like this, concealed headlamps and all, but his was seafoam green with matching vinyl roof. This example has the vertical strakes on the taillights and my brother’s had the simpler style. His also a a 2bbl 360ci V8.
TRU had only one Best Of The World car, the Routemaster, and it was sort of hidden. Both peg sets were completely empty. I’m happy to have this one though as it was expected to be one of the rarer of the set.

I finally gave in and bought this old Corgi 007 DB5.
It has one of the coolest boxes I’ve seen on a diecast, and I’m probably going to leave it carded.
The wheels look like an older style wheel, and the name on the box (Hornby Hobbies Ltd. UK), did they recast this old Corgi or is it a new casting? ——— EDIT: I just found out that Hornby re-released this casting as part of James Bond’s 50th Anniversary.

Greenlight ‘58 Apache, it was too nice to leave behind, especially since I’m a bowtie guy.
At TRU I found another pace car ‘68 Olds and decided to grab it so I could see how it would take to a slight detampoing.
Very well it would seem. With only the Pace Car and HW logo gone, it’s now simply a white and gold ‘68 Hurst Olds. I love how the wheels are reminiscent of the gold rallyes that these cars so often had.

Last but never least, my HWEP with RoundBadge! I’m always after more Hot Ones, Flying Customs, Boulevards, Since ‘68s, etc., and he came through with this HO F512M.
I was shocked to realize that I had no HW 996 GT1-98 in my collection, and with a realistic livery, this one fits perfectly.
He also hooked me up with a Flying Customs Tyrrell-Ford P34.
