Cutting it close here. I picked up the Gulf gas station at TRU. Here is one of my favorites the Red Autoworld GT40.
“Hell hath no Fury...like a 1958 Plymouth” - tagline for the 1983 movie, CHRISTINE.
As you may be able to tell from my posts, I’m a huge fan a TV and movie cars. One of the most iconic movie cars is a ah, blood red Plymouth Fury named Christine. If you’re not familiar with the movie, it revolves around a 1958 Plymouth Fury that is basically evil incarnate, and possesses its owners — all of which end…
While cruising through the isle of a Wal-Mart the other day it struck me just how many different 1/64th scale cars are out there. The “Hot Wheels isle” is LOADED with cars ranging from the basic .94 cent Hot Wheels line, all the way up to the $6 AutoWorld castings — and everything in between. I noticed that the most…
On my 147th post is the ‘69 Chevy Kingswood Estate by Auto World.
It’s been nearly a year, but I previously wrote a bit about a non die-cast segment of my collection- the trading cards that some companies have included with their castings from time to time. In that post, I teased a part two. I know it’s almost been a year since that post, but hey, I said it might be a while!
In the last 24hrs. This is what ive captured so far.
Also, someone’s Secret Super box left for much colder climes today!
All four releases plus the two ultra reds. I’m glad Round 2 is going to release some more soon!
The art of collecting die cast is a consistent battle between head and heart.
I’ve kept my eyes open for a Bullitt Mustang if I ever chanced upon one. This one was hanging at ToysRUs a week or two ago, so I picked it up. It’s nice, and definitely something I want to have in my collection. This one is from Greenlight.
On my 122nd post is one of the few Auto World that I was able to acquire before Walmart ceased to restock in our area. In fact it took me a while to find this model as this was a new tool at that time and either it was a victim of scalpers or Walmart was slow to restock. Presenting the first issue of the 1963 Dodge…
I just got these in and they’re great! I’ll spare you the detailed pics, since others have already done that (I’m pretty sure). pow pow :D
Thanks philiphilip for explaining HWEP and for this BEAUTY! It turns out I only need the black flake painted one and the Speed Machines variations, and I’ll be caught up. I love this casting!
Ok, I tried:D Just thought I’d share a sneak peek of some Schuco 1:64 diecast that I scored over the weekend. I am AMAZED at the detail. Anyone else collect Schuco? I’ll try to get some good shots and post them up, later. In the meantime...
Here’s my first shoot of the new GT40's on my diorama. I mainly focused on the race winner this time. A new backdrop would be nice, so I’m toying with some ideas. Preferably something a little less labor-intensive and also easier to store than this 4' diorama!
Today I present the only diecast I gained at the Rolex Reunion, picked out by my 5 year old (with just a little direction, I admit) after she said she wanted to buy me a dark blue car, because she knows that’s my favorite color. She also picked out a couple of casts from the Cars franchise, one for her and one for…
I just picked up this lovely COBRA hauler and decided to pair it with some related metal: Cobras, my Shelby Daytona Coupe, and of course my new GT40s.
You did know I love GT40s, right?
Hi LaLD! I haven’t posted in a bit; last weekend I moved, so a lot of the time around that was spent packing and unpacking. And, as it turns out, buying die-cast. So here’s everything I’ve picked up in the past few weeks. There are definitely some goodies in here.
