New Spring Colors at Walmart New Spring Colors at Walmart

I could tell that I’d missed out on new stuff, but I’m happy enough to have found these.

A Couple of Surprises @ Home A Couple of Surprises @ Home

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.

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.

The Most Overdue Thank You Possible? The Most Overdue Thank You Possible?

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. Last year... We’d exchanged emails over the “birthing” of the car, going through different colors, etc. Seeing his work was one of the compelling…

Slam It! Damn It! WIP... Slam It! Damn It! WIP...

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.

Water, Water Everywhere...* Water, Water Everywhere...*

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.

First Day Back, to Obscurity and Beyond! First Day Back, to Obscurity and Beyond!

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!
