Got a positively huge shipment in from my man in the Inland Empire.
I dropped into Target to check the pegs after work, and I found the whole Circuit Legends set. I had to buy one extra care, because I thought it was a cool error. Definitely not repackaged or anything.
I’ve been trying to post a daily picture to my diecast Instagram (camshaft_chris_collects_cars) lately, but I’m realizing that has caused me to neglect you non-Instagrammers by not posting anything here. So to make up for that, here’s a photo dump of stuff from my IG, along with a few things I haven’t posted anywhere.…
Hey LaLD! Been a minute since I posted on here. Just wanted to give a quick update on the collection.
Dipped into my local Walgreens after a half day of jury duty and found this bad boy. This is my first.
Paging Eddie! The next HW Collectors Nationals is coming to Lombard, Illinois in April of 2019.
Yeah, I’ve been quiet. And that’s because the pegs have been barren around me. I basically hit a month-plus dry spell that had me questioning getting into this mess in the first place.
Two Vipers, two Hondas, three Escalades,, one Ford, one Acura. Large real riders/rims, comically large fart cans, and not much else as far as parts go.
Or, you could want one for the car, I don’t know.

The Ford Escort was originally introduced to replace the aging Ford Anglia, a mainstay among drivers in post-war Britain. The Anglia was affordable, maintainable, and easy to drive, but it wasn’t exactly a motorsport icon. As time rolled on and prospective buyers were watching rally racing and track days from the…
I know it’s just a like on IG, but I get excited by the small things. Happy Friday everyone!
A pair of Renaults.
Mine were just shot with my phone while we were out at the pumpkin patch yesterday. I’ll try to get some actual camera shots of this thing in the near future.
Here is an original Hot Wheels vintage produced in one color; Enamel Yellow which will be my 174th post for DLM cars for the 1/64 and smaller.
Last Saturday was a fruitful day as I had a chance to meet a fellow LaLD dek34 at a collectors booth where it contains tons of diecast to feast your eyes on and I was able to bring back these.
I hadn’t posted in a while, I’ve been pretty busy with work, plus I didn’t have my camera. This is a long post that includes a few of my finds during the past few days, a custom I finished and a “restoration” I’m about to finish. Cleaning the paint out of the crevices of the Jeep Gladiator is truly a pain in the butt.
Are supposed to be available by now...
The Nissan Skyline GT-R (BNR32). And, for some reason, the Enterprise has made a surprise appearance. I don’t collect Star Trek, so it’s up for grabs.
I’m sure a certain teacher of shop will like the Elco.
I picked up the ugly-as-sin Bazzoma because it has my (currently) favorite wheels in red. never seen them in red…
This is the way Kmart Hot Wheels Collectors Events end...
Kind of a let down, no $upers, a few regular THs, and quite a few Noobs to that location. Still, it was a civilized event, as ours always had been.
After a relatively unsuccsessful early morning Hawl the big blue bin had a few hidden gems waiting, especially at the bottom. Some of the HW 50th cars are really impressive. Went out looking for Cruella and “Merdcetes-Bentz!” 190E and found nothing, beginning to think those are all spoken for as we approach the…
Lancia. That name instantly conjures an image of beautiful rally monsters, bizarre styling made expressly to dominate on the special stages of ice and snow, tarmac and gravel, and too-tight roadways with far too many spectators on them. To those who have driven one, it, uh... also conjures the image of a terrifying…
