There was a toy show in town this weekend so I took the kid and spent a few hours roaming aisle after aisle knee deep in GI Joes, Transformers, He-Man and Hot Wheels. My kid scored a few Barbie dolls while I found myself a few mainlines I didn't have in fantasy league collection.


My kid loves Ghostbusters and likes to race with me as much as she likes her Barbie, so when she spotted a Slimer Bread Box, we couldn't pass it up.


Also found this weekend, in the wild at Meijer, were a Skyline I figured I'd never get along with another Datsun wagon (can't have enough of them).


What have you found recently? Post a photo and let us know where you found them...

Just picked up 10 of these FTE '70 Plymouth Superbirds.

Watched it for awhile on Ebay

Decent deal off Ebay...slightly less than $3 per car including shipping

Love them Lakesters but I can never keep the wheels from getting bent! Its like they have paper for axles. 

The FTE  Superbird haul....4 will be kept Stock...2 will be Modified themselves and 4 will be donors for other cars, one is another Superbird I've had that's not good...so going to see if I can make a decent car outta it now.


Nice Mopars! But then again, I'm sort of partial

Hot Wheels show today...

all good donors there... 458's getting tougher to fine these days
LeagueofSpeed
I'll mod the Grand Sport Vette as is and hopefully get one fast staock 458 outta the deal and mod the other.
LeagueofSpeed

Dadvball
Lots of nice cars there, congrats!
  • Day late and a dollar short (literally). Ok so a friend of mine sent me one of these gas monkey's and it came in the mail last week. Dollar General had hot wheels/matchbox on sale .50 each minimum purchase 2. So I hit this Dollar General that had 4 hot wheels displays in their store. One of the demos had not even been opened just sitting on the end cap with cars packed in them. Look what was in there? A gas monkey garage corvette. I could've gotten it for .50 but instead paid a dollar (a day late). I know that the collectors think this is sacrilege but I'm gonna crack one of these.

Cool Find!Open it up and have some fun!
Dadvball
I hit one today and they had 2 of these displays. No Vette though.


LeagueofSpeed
Finally got one still in the blister pack
Traction-Event

LeagueofSpeed
Absolutely....bought one loose that's quick....gonna mod one of them
Mopar_Mafia
glad you found one brother
LeagueofSpeed
This one is "The" Country Club Muscle....Thanks Mopar....paid to much, but it's mine


GspeedR
Nice! Now that you've chased that one down, the Race Aces Carbide should be the next one on your list. Lots of "performance per gram"!!

Nice!  Hadn't heard about this casting until you posted about it earlier. Nice looking car. I managed to find the Muscle Mania version in a Dollar General today so I'm itching to give it a run. 

@ LOS modded one awhile back... solid platform
