I’m sure you’ve noticed that the original Z has a special place in my collection. So now they need a special place... in my collection.
I have these two spares. Happy to part with them for $5.50 each plus shipping. Email is scottganz at Gmail.
UPDATE: I have buyers for both.
Well now I’ve gone and done it.
I got the display case. I am not a truck guy. If anyone wants to swap for this, I’d be happy to work a deal. Some more pics:
I had to call in sick today. No, it is not a case of St. Patricksitis. I didn’t spend my weekend carousing. I spent it putting these together:
Remember when I detailed that black and blue 2002? Well I decided to finish the job today. As usual, it was a mess. As usual, I like what I wound up with.
Do I need to post every time I make a decent score? Is it becoming an obligation? We’ll see. But I finally had some time this morning to do a writeup.
When the first order got cancelled, I began to lose hope. But I got a tip off the Hot Wheels subreddit that they were available again, and after a fairly nerve-wracking wait, they actually made it to my house.
As I ponder an RLC membership this month, I noticed this piece on Orange Track Diecast:
I bought the Maverick and the Super Bee ages ago. Finally took a stab at them today. I even drilled the Maverick just to be able to paint the bumper correctly. I also used panel liner again, on the R32 grill and the Super Bee grill and tail assembly. Nice to have options.
Big weekend of customs. Figured I’d just do a mega-post so as not to monopolize the front page.
You might even say... Mach 1. I got bored while watching the kids and decided to do a quick paint-pen freshen up. The subject?
Since I restarted collecting in 2018, this covers basically everything I’ve got that didn’t come from that closet in my parents’ house. Let’s get started.
Head on over to Entertainment Earth and grab a set. No word on whether it’s two BREs or if it has the Advan.
Along with last week’s mega-hawl, I decided to smuggle four more vintage cars north.
After a week of rolling my eyes at my inlaws, the family shifted to LA so we could visit my folks. But these days my newest LA ritual is to visit the collectibles show and make up for all the crummy hunting in my neck of the woods. So between my hawl yesterday and meeting up with Doug and all the stuff he’d saved for…
This is the thing that got me back into diecast in the first place. This is why I started collecting again. All the JDM and Euro stuff, which I love, has been an offshoot of this.
Maybe I shouldn’t work at Hot Wheels. Never would I have imagined that the Gulf Galaxie and the Camaro would be left to rot while that little red truck with the crummy pipes would go flying off the pegs.
Finally made it to the collectibles show during my trip to LA. Didn’t spend myself all the way into penury like I thought I would, but I still did AOK.
