Picked this up at a farm/garden from the Ertl/Tomy display. It’s an old Racing Champions casting.
I genuinely had my doubts about whether the Target Retro line would continue past the first set, but I’m glad to be proved wrong. The latest round has been trickling out at my local Target lately (along with some of the old stuff - hit me up if you still need a Hurst Olds). There have been some really nice releases so…
I’ve been a fan of the ‘32 Ford Delivery since basically forever. A while back I HWEPed with vdubyajohn for, amongst other things, a blue ‘32 Ford Delivery:
Let’s just get it out of the way: the ride height on this is, um, high. (Also, in the top pic there, and some of the others, it is not sitting straight on the railing, so it kind of exaggerates the already slightly elevated front. Gasser Vega, anyone?)
As I was sorting through the Big Box o’ Corvettes from vdubyajohn, I encountered multiple examples of this MBX T-Top C3, which is a very nice casting. The top car in the absolutely mind-bending picture at the top of this post had a purple interior, which I am not going to let go to waste. So I disassembled that car.…
It’s that day of the year when I have to ask myself, “What is the most gosh darn American car in my collection?” This is it, hands down.
Two amazing things happened yesterday. Story time!
This is a quick ‘n’ easy custom that took me like a year to finish.
Got this gem in the mail recently thanks to fintail’s Sale of the Century.
We didn’t watch TV at home when I was a kid. During the summers, every afternoon my mom would take us to my grandparents’ house to eat cookies and swim in the pool. When my mom would kick us out of the pool so she could swim laps in peace, we’d go inside and watch TV. Zorro, Rin-Tin-Tin and Batman were the shows of…
Kind of an oddball today in that it’s essentially a fantasy car in that there’s never been a 1:1, but it’s also a licensed car. What?
In the top image is the diecast display in my bedroom. Until today, it was split between wagons and Cool Classics. However, something important happened on Monday that caused this to change.
My kids spent a good chunk of the afternoon playing with one of the neighbors and constructing a landscape in the sandbox. There’s not a lot of actual sand in the sandbox at the moment, but since the backyard is very much “under construction”, they’re free to grab any materials they want for their projects. When I saw…
Haven’t been hawling much lately for various reasons, but I found some things that pleased me today. Came away with more fantasy cars than licensed cars, but whatever.
It’s a daily deal site. 10 HW Star Wars ships for $20+$5 shipping. Or 9 Hasbro ships for $18+shipping.
Here we have a Maisto VW Samba bus in Polizei livery. Snagged it at Target a while back on clearance.
We’ve got snow. Huge fluffy flakes coming down right now. The snow on the table in the picture there is just a few minutes accumulation. It’s a few degrees above freezing and supposed to be 60 tomorrow. I dunno.
Courtesy of R32rennsport, this arrived over the weekend, and I DLMed it today for some pictures. Despite the lack of good light (haven’t seen the sun since Monday), the spectraflame paint is still great and the two-tone wood detail is excellent.
Cut down a mulberry tree this week, so now I have a stump. All the cool kids are taking pictures of their diecast on stumps (at least, I’ve seen a few here and there), so here’s this sweet HW livery Baja Bug I got from dtg11 a while back (thanks dude!).
