I grabbed one of my dear old black Hot Birds from my youth, and paired it with the foxy new Greenlight Blues Mobile casting. They’re currently holding the fort on my desk at work.
Hello all! The admins here were nice enough to let me start posting, so I thought you’d appreciate seeing some of my old favorites I harvested from my parents’ house. I hadn’t set eyes on these in years, but since I weirdly caught the bug again, I thought I’d grab a few favorites and take them home with me.
1948 Land Rover Series 1 by Matchbox Collectibles: Models Of Yesteryear. And it is 70 years old this year! :D
It’s been a while since I did a Matchbox Major pack Monday. I have a few of these vintage models that I haven’t shown yet so may I present to you the Major pack M-4 Freuhauf Hopper Train by Matchbox.
I went to Walmart and Goodwill yesterday. Wally had like eight new C cases but no Supers in sight. Then I went to Goodwill not expecting to find anything and there they were: two massive bags of diecast for $3 each. These would’ve probably been taken to the back and put on their ebay store had I not gotten to them…
I’ll be posting some photos over on Oppo from The Mitty! I had a blast down at Road Atlanta on Friday watching the vintage racing. Great stuff! Anyway, check out the first post here:
Haven’t seen a lot of ambulance livery here so let’s look at a nice but probably neglected vintage ambulance toy truck.
Watch them fly, hear them sing.
Went to the antique mall and I found some treasures in one of the bucket stops in there. Fifty cents each! These cars have obviously been displayed right up until they were pulled out to be sold. Excellent condition but dirty as hell. You know, that dirt glaze that accumulates over time if you don’t periodically clean…
I’ve been picking up some casts here and there and thought I’d share.
These two little guys came to mind when everyone was posting breadboxes. Neither are bread-mobiles, but are both hard workers, and very very play worn by my father.
This was my first time attending the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion. Hopefully it won’t be my last!
Many pictures, few words.
For the people not familiar or into the die cast hobby, they would associate the Matchbox brand as a small size 1/64 scale which is usually within the 2 to 3 inch measurement. For the people that grew up in the 50's thru the 80’s who played with Matchbox toys, they would remember that Matchbox also did the large size…
I really liked this little beast from the get go when I saw it, I’m not sure of having seen other variations of it on the pegs though. I love the tail light tampos, the roll bar and how fast it looks even at rest. I wouldn’t mind driving one in real life for my every day commute :)
Here we have a vintage Dinky Supertoys Gift Set 698 Thornycroft Antar Tank Transporter with Centurion Tank.
I went back to the scene of the alleged crime that was the bag o’ casts and I found this rare gem.
Here is the Lesney Matchbox Mercedes Coach from my recent hawl of vintage diecasts. All of the casts were from the late 60's and early 70's and are in great condition. This particular cast does have a small piece of the framework missing and another small bit cracked, that made cleaning a little bit difficult as I…
Here’s the Lesney Matchbox Lincoln Continental from my recent hawl. All of the casts are from the late 60's and early 70's and are in great condition. I tried to capture the true color of this car, which is a metallic gold, but after-effects proved difficult to render properly across all of the pictures. Such is life…
