CamshaftChris and Plasticprints came through today. The massive loose haul is from Plasticprints jammer sale, so much good stuff. I realized I still left a few behind that I wanted. Amazingly I don’t have 99 percent of these in my collection yet, super stoked to fill in some gaps!
I believe these are all the variations except the white Kroger exclusive. Someone please send it to me. Bonus image at the bottom.
Summer time hawl! I found most of the new stuff I was looking for this week without much effort between three stores. Brickseek has been an utter failure in accuracy in my area so I’ve been hunting on intuition. The Honda series was wiped out at both Walmarts except for the Monkey which I actually collect, but I…
Got a tip from my dad of all people that there was a basket of Hotwheels at a local thrift store. These are what I walked away with. Ice cream truck because summer time.
Found these on the shelf at my Walmart today. No pricing. Just hanging out on the lower shelf. Now my wallet is much lighter. Will crack tomorrow. Still need a 50th premium set if anyone has a spare. Also an Audi RS6, where are all the new mainlines? Thought I'd see those way before these transporters. Long live the…
So stoked to have this first edition added to the collection. As was mentioned earlier today, checking one more off the list! Hillclimb vehicles for the win!
I have to say this has been probably the best round of HWEP transactions since I started collecting. Here are just a few of the trades I received from you guys. For those that didn’t trade monetary transactions were prompt and generous. Long live HWEP!
I feel like I’m in bit of a sharing slump lately. One reason I felt like offering all my hoard recently, to par down and focus on what I have. I feel like I haven’t been collecting that long but I think all of us go through that phase eventually. Slow down, focus and appreciate.
To celebrate here is a quick and dirty custom E30 M3 for a Teutonic Tuesday!
Sorry everyone, I’m not ignoring you. Didn’t get to die casting this weekend, had family to attend to and was working on the 1:1 Volvo project. I’ll review the lists and send out emails tonight so we can finalize trades.
Same rules apply here as in the previous post. If you missed it it’s about 4 posts down on the main page. These are all loose cars, previous post is carded cars.
Cleaning out my coffers of wheel donors and general hoarding before I visit the Target returns desk.
I’m really loving some of these 1:24 scale VWs that M2 is putting out lately. This one was already fairly modded out of the box with it’s color matched bumpers and somber two tone. It came riding on gold American Racing 5 spokes but I thought a set of Fuchs would dress it up nicely with a slight drop to match. Wanted…
Following up to Plasticprints post. I don’t collect M2s but I do like the Hako Skyline and Type 2 buses so I have a couple that I like. Had to adjust the height on these but overall stellar little casts.
I thought I’d fire up the photo booth and share one of my favorites. The sadly one and done Hot Wheels Mk2 Audi TTS from the Speed Machines line up. Why this was never put into the mainline baffles me.
To recognize that today at Pike’s Peak International Hill Climb, yes that was also today, that the overall record set just a few years ago by Sebastian Loeb and Puegot was shattered by Romain Dumas and Volkswagen Motorsport in an all electric Unlimited Class vehicle. Ladies and Gents we have a new 7 minute club!…
The poster car of the late 80s/early 90s. The Ferrari F40. If a Lamborghini Diablo wasn’t hanging on your wall then this most likely was.
Iconic car. Iconic livery. Le Mans is upon us.
Another R32rennsport exclusive, proper photography to follow. I love taking cheaper, entry level 1:18s and kicking them up a notch and this one turned out particularly well with relatively little effort.
