It’s still pretty cold here in Vermont and Yard Sale season is close, yet not quite here yet. Still, there was a yard sale advertised nearby today and we decided to pay a visit. Nothing good... BUT it got us out of the house and rolling which is good because I’ve been addicted to Fallout 4 and my wife is equally knees-deep in Skyrim. Good to get our lazy nerd asses out and about from time to time.
The yard sale was a bust so we drove down to Mass to look at some used cars and hit random flea markets & antique shops. It was a good trip! I scored all these cars for $1 ea or .50 ea. Lots of unexpected Redlines in bins and buckets. Enjoy the photodump.
Next up... this truck is waaaaaaaaaay outside my normal collecting habits. But I could not resist. It ticks all the right boxes for me. Since I volunteer at a cat shelter, my love for cars and cats are pretty equal. So, when I saw this odd, unimog-like, off road beast with an ad on the side featuring a rather charming looking feline, it had to come home with me. I am not entirely sure what the product is or who makes this truck. There’s no company marking on the bottom and it’s mostly metal construction. It has a winding rod on the side next to the rear tires and a clockwork motor for forward propulsion. IT’S FREAKING ADORABLE!!! and may go on the shelf with my autoart cars <3
Thanks for looking! Can’t wait for engine week to start!
