Today was my monthly Flea Market trip. had fairly good luck there and crappy luck at the Walmart Supercentre at which I usually have good luck.
This guy allows me to look through his plastic totes that are usually under his tables as well as what is out on the tables. For $25.00 I got the following 7:
100% Hot Wheels Vintage Volkswagen Microbus
A red Panoz GTR-1 to go with my white one. I just admire the audacity Panoz demonstrated by building a front-mid-engine FIA GT car when everyone else was building rear-engined ones. Add the exhaust note of a Roush Racing Ford NASCAR V8 and you’ve got a winner in my books. I used to love racing one of these in one of my PC racing games, probably one of the Simbin ones, either GTR FIA GT Racing or its sequel, GTR Evolution.
Sidebar: speaking of PC racing games, I just bought two Codemasters games (I’ve been a little disappointed with their games recently), GRID Autosport and DIRT Rally, both from last year. I highly recommend both. I’m currently playing GRID, racing Super Utes and V8 Supercars at Mount Panorama (my favourite track for years in racing games) among many other cars & tracks.
1965 Shelby Cobra 427. This is the first and only one I’ve seen with a top. Looks sorta awkward, doesn’t it?
‘91 GMC Syclone. Nothin’ more needs to be said.
‘65 Chevy Pickup, because old pickups are cool.
A couple of loose VW vans at this table.
This one just says “Matchbox” and “VW Delivery Van” on the bottom, along with the scale at 1:53. The “VW” hubcaps are cool...
I may gift this one to my nephew who collects Coke stuff.
MBX 1970 Volkswagen T2 Bus.
Custom ‘53 Chevy
A variation of a ‘69 Charger Daytona I didn’t have.
A ‘69 Dodge Charger 500.
Herbie! Nothing more to say about it. Shame the wheels don’t match the package illustration... I bet I can find some MBX wheels that look like that.
1966Dodge A100 Pickup, because everyone loves COE pickups.
‘56 Buick Century Police Car, because Buick police car!
I managed to find two things that I was interested in...
‘67 Chevelle SS 396, because muscle car.
And I finally found the 510 wagon!
