I could tell that I’d missed out on new stuff, but I’m happy enough to have found these.
I’m sorting out cars to banish from my basement, trying to find all the loose cars that don’t fit my plans anymore. I remember buying this Jaguar XJ220 from a vendor without noticing that it had been sat upon by a previous caretaker, and being annoyed when I did. I never gave it a second look after that.
I discovered a new flea market while out car shopping in CT. Luckily, I found these seven diecast at the first vendor I stopped at. Luckily not just for the decent finds, but because my skeletal components had had enough. I think this is finally the end of my field trips. Right at the start of the season too! I won’t…

Just checking on what’s new:
I’ll let the seller’s own photos tell the tale:
I just don’t have the space for this...
I’m getting rid of as much cardboard as I can while at the same time, saving
good cars from being harvested for their tires. First Round:
The great cardboard banishment has begun. I’m too old to babysit cards.
First, and coincidentally, I promised to save cars from my drill from now on, so there will be one or two more Save The Wheels posts before I move on to the carded HWs.
So, the premiere lot is the 13 Matchbox Premiere Cars left. The bulk deal is over…
Unearthed in the furthest corners of the basement.
Thank you Muscle-GTA. My apologies for taking so long to post your RAOK work. (And for the bad lighting I’m still using...)
This is the Porsche 959 M-GTA/Alex made for me.
We’d exchanged emails over the “birthing” of the car, going through different colors, etc. Seeing his work was one of the compelling…
As I re-discover these lost projects in the dark corners and shadowed recesses of my work space, I plan to share them as a kind of kick-in-the-ass to force myself to get moving on them.
But not what I was looking for on my way home from dining out with friends last night.
But, I didn’t pick up even ONE as a wheel donor, so, I’m getting better.
Today was my first real trip back to the indoor/outdoor flea market in quite a while. I found a nice stash of old Speed Wheels on cards, some will stay some will go, and a really nice assortment of loose cars!
Snow spoiler to help keep the tail end on the road.
someone drooled on my keyboard, excuse me...
Things can only get better as I learn the ins and outs.
M@@N Equipped JDM recently seen at Walmart:
I was able to play stock boy at walmart this past Thursday. One case of HWs Gulf Cars, 3 cases of MBX with opening parts, and one each of the Ford trucks and mainline MBX. This is what I walked away with; Both Honda Civics and one big Mac are available for trade/paypal.
I see it in the split rear window, but that’s just me...
