Big things with little cars
Big things with little cars

Pretty stressful week at work necessitated a nice self-rewarding yard sale run today. Hey, the weather was perfect and it just seemed like a good day to be outside. Mega-photo dump!

I have to apologize for the lighting. My usual photo desk is covered with crap that I am unloading on eBay. So, I had to take some pics on the dining room table. Most of these cars were .25 cents each. With the exception of the carded HW which were $1 ea. The JL multipack was $4. Overall, a great HAWL that didn’t hurt my wallet too much.

Ever since Fintail posted his Tomica Mustang II, I have longed for one. I’m mega happy to have found this playworn one in a tote full of cars. This is my grail find because I am one of those warped bastards that loves the Mustang II.

HW Crack Ups Nissan.  I see these pretty often, but usually they are missing the rear hatch that holds the damaged part in place. This one is complete and in great shape.

Even more bat-dung crazy is this California edition Ferrari.  Shiny purple with two tone interior and real riders... Just plain odd. I bought it to pillage the wheels, maybe.

To top it all off I found a complete Slot car track with cars for a buck. Heck, those are like magic words to me. The box could be full of cooking magazines and I would still buy it. Race Track $1.00 is all I need to know.

Thanks for looking! Happy hunting this weekend everyone!
