Well, guys - it happened! I found a buyer for the whole collection (save for a few more cars I saved for myself and someone I had forgotten to grab a couple cars for). Here’s the amazing part, they were less than 2 hours away.
Hey everyone: I am a little late on getting an update to you guys on how the auction went! Well, to make a long story short, I received bids from a total of two people.
Hey guys - I think it’s time. Time to sell some Die-cast cars. So here’s what I am going to do:
It seems that everyone in the automotive journalism world is obsessed by something. For some, it’s a make that is special to them. Others like turn signals. Some just like to find the most minute quirks. Me: I like doors. Whether they are gullwings, falcons, vertical, suicide, or a dihedral synchro-helix actuation…
So, it was worth a shot! It’s time to start looking at plan B!
Alright, this is it! The last post about this collection (actually...not really, I do have a couple more....). But, it is the last post about the cars themselves!
Hey guys, sorry it’s been so long! A new family member arrived in our household a couple months ago and things have been, let’s say “hectic” since!
Here is the selection set aside for two more people in my life. The first is my nephew, who is 9 and not yet a big car guy, but, I’m hopeful this will help sway him to the dark side! It’s pretty much a complete turn-key set up. Some police cars, fire engines, ambulances, plus buses, trash trucks and construction…
I hope everyone had a great Easter!

Today I’m going to double up and show you the cars that I set aside for both of my bosses.
The conversation went a little bit like this:
Folks, this is it. This is the end. The last box in this amazing collection. This collection was willed to me when the original collector passed away after a battle with cancer. Actually, the 2nd anniversary of his passing was only 10 days ago. I was tasked with finding a new home for the collection, preferably as a…
Wait! What do you mean, penultimate!?? You mean there’s an end to this insanity!??
Well, apparently I forgot to make a note as to which brand these cars are....though, I’m guessing someone ‘round these parts will know the answer!
Once again a small spattering of Majorette’s is upon us, nicely grouped in 80's castings. The excellent 2-door Wagoneers, Chevy tow trucks, Toyota pickups and even a couple of camper vans. On the lighter side is also a snowmobile and a handful of trailers for various outdoor activities. On the heavier side is a train…
Other than Netflix or TV Land, where can one see the stars of The Dukes of Hazard and the A-Team together in one place?
Yesterday: Race Cars. Specifically race cars that go fast and make many, many left (do I mean right turns? No....no, left is right, right? Right.).
