This weekend was a heck of weekend for car shopping. Not only was it the first HWC day of 2011 at the KMart, I found a great hobby store in town that sells older model cars for a buck.
The KMart yielded a lot of new cars. Not all of them were HWC specials (if any) but I hadn't been out to the stores in a while so they are all knew to the collection. A few variations of old favorites but otherwise a hefty stock that will be added to the Fantasy League for season 4.
People say they don't read bus bench signs, but I did the other night and discovered a hobby shop in town that even had "diecast" on its advertisement. I checked out to find their diecast selection wasn't very big (it was mostly a train store) but the pegs they did have were stocked full with late-90s model cars...all for a dollar! I grabbed the ones that looked like interesting racers and even found a blackwall Testarossa!
Finding the older cars for still only a buck was pretty exciting. The hobby shop also had some $2+ cars, even some vintage cars for around $10, but after spending $25 on cars in one day I needed to keep myself under control.
Needless to say, all of these will be added to the Fantasy League for the new season, which means it should be another interesting and challenging season of racing.
What cars have you scored recently?
