Big things with little cars

Small Town HAWL - Charlestown Town Wide Yard Sale 2019

Today is the annual Charlestown NH Town Wide Yard Sale. Since the cat shelter I volunteer at is also in Charlestown I started my day there around 5:45 a.m. (bleck!) and helped get the shelter yard sale set up. Around 8 I was good to go while the other volunteers would handle the selling and cleanup for the day.

Normally... I would spend the entire day walking around and hunting every single yards sale in town (close to 100 of them) with my wife. But, this year she’s resting at home recovering from surgery and its almost 100 degrees here in New England this weekend! I did a quick stroll around some of the main yard sales and hopped in the xB to cruise the perimeter. I found one yard sale with a tub full of cars, got my diecast fix and go the hell out of Dodge. I just didn’t feel like fighting the heat and getting exhausted. lol.

Below, my HAWL.

Matchbox Ruff Trek in fantastic condition. Definitely the winner of the group. When I was a kid I wast totally convinced this was a Subaru Brat.

Insanely rekt Hotwheels Redline AMC AMX. Might be a candidate for a restomod someday. I couldnt help but rescue it even if it’s totally trashed.

Merkur XR4i in excellent condition. I dont have this color variation of this car which is one of my all time MBX favs.

HW Crack Ups Security Patrol car. Because y’know... security officers probably dont have the same training and crash all the time.

action 1:64 Kasey Kahne Dodge Car of Tomorrow NASCAR. Going to unbox this, if its cool looking it’s a keeper... if not... the wheels are for customs :)

And last but certainly not least... REALLY Playworn Dodge Aries Wagon. It’s rough. Some kid loved this car very much. Surprisingly, this is my first HW Aries Wagon. I hope to find a minty one someday. But I think this one will be a fun restomod project as well.
