We were out looking for baby stuff for our upcoming #2, and lo and behold, our last stop held a 400 car+ surprise, from a collector thinning/focusing his fleet. He’s big into Redlines, and has quite an amazing collection of originals, which he was kind enough to show me. Out of the 400 or so carded cars on offer, I took home over 70, all new to my collection, including some pretty special ones that I’d never even seen or heard of before. I’m over the moon, this is the haul I’ve been waiting to find at every garage sale for the last 10 years. There are a few duplicates and cars I picked up with some of you guys in mind, so I’ll be making a separate HWEP post about that stuff. Needless to say, I won’t be buying any cars off the pegs for quite awhile because this took up a good 6 months worth of the haul “budget,” but it was so worth it. Is it weird that little toy cars make a grown man giddy as a child? Because that’s how I feel.
