Got some detailing work on a couple of vehicles for the junkyard on my diorama. The pickup is a Matchbox, and the loader is a Tomica.
For Truck Thursday I present a Hot Wheels Dodge Little Red Express. In the mid-70s Dodge realized that while emissions laws were strangling car horsepower, trucks had little emissions requirements. The result was them producing a line of Muscle Trucks, the Little Red Express being the most famous.
For Wagon Wednesday I present possibly the least “hot” Hot Wheels ever produced. A 1982 Aries Wagon.
The stripes & Cragars on this Mach 1 are so epically tacky they come back around to kinda awesome again. Sadly I don’t own sufficient acid wash jean shorts & Metallica Tees with the sleeves cut off to be able to drive this car.
I wear pretty much nothing but Paratrooper boots year round, and all my current pairs are at (or well past) the end of their life. I’m looking for recommendations for their replacement.
Wanting a more generic tanker. I pulled one of my Speedway trailers apart and stripped it down.
Improbable Garage Towing brings out both Century 9055 heavy wreckers to right a semi in a busy intersection.
It was one heck of a car to own, build, and daily drive.
Everyone who bought cars from the Trade Bait Selloff, your packages are in the mail(along with a delayed HEWP package to Shopteacher). I guessed way wrong on shipping costs, so most of you saved a bunch by just paying the $5 estimated shipping. And the two who’s packages were less, you helped subsidize the others.
For those who haven’t looked yet, 140 cars and 2 buildings still remain in my Trade Bait Selloff post. You should buy them! For $10 you can get up to 20 cars shipped to your door, for $20 you can get up to 60 cars!
For all of you who have claimed cars in my Trade Bait Selloff post. When I get home from my dentist appt tonight I will be pulling the cars you claimed. Everyone will get a reply with a pic of their cars and a price with & without shipping.
Here is the post, with all 198 vehicles for sale. Unless otherwise noted, they are 25 cents each. They are all used, so expect some chips, scratches, etc. even if it isn’t visible in the pics. EDIT: updated list with still available cars
EDIT: Sorry but I won’t be honoring cars claimed in this post. This is already going to be a complicated sale to keep track of, so trying to keep track of claims across multiple posts is more than I want to deal with.Once the actual post is up with prices & such, that is when you can start claiming cars.
Trailer made from the back half of a VW panel bus, for $900. It can’t be any worse than the last trailer I bought.
My trade pile has gotten massive, but I don’t have much right now I’m looking to trade for. I want to get this down to a more manageable size. Would people be interested in a big selloff? It’d be mostly HW/MBX mainlines at $0.25 ea. + shipping. Plus some odds and ends, also pretty cheap.
You will never be ‘73 Eldorado with flipflop paint job, white leather interior and continental kit vulgar. Unless you buy this one on ebay.
Just a couple wreck slowly rusting away in the corner of the junkyard. No modifications were made to either except to paint the bare zamac areas to look like rust.
The Tracksiders Car Club and the local diner got together to host their regular Kustom & Hot Rods car show. What started as a half-dozen cars in the diner parking lot has grown to take over every inch of parking on the block.
Should the diner on my layout host a JDM car show or a traditional Hot Rods & Kustoms car show first? Either way the show is going to be big enough to spill over into the transfer terminal’s parking lot.
While the truck made through the entire Oppo Rally, it was not running great, and got progressively worse throughout the 450 trip. After the rally the truck was virtually undrivable.
