Purchased these recently. Hoping to be able to get a track set up soon. Just need to sort out a track timer and finish line, then I can start building.

Found one of my Holy Grail cars today along with a few other sweet pieces. I love pre-Christmas weekend flea market shopping. Sellers bring everything out and seem to be willing to deal. 


  • Heck yeah good job! Flea Markets around me are lame when it comes to Hot Wheels. I always get super jealous when others find great cars at them! — Mattman213

Happy birthday to myself! 


Another good day of Hotwheel hunting. Found a few that'll likely make their way to the track. 


  • Awesome!!! — LeagueofSpeed
  • Woah, a red (pink?) Caddy 16...didn't know that existed, great find! Can't have enough Ferraris either. — redlinederby
  • The 16v is a TH from 2007 and I knew they were out there but I've never seen one before plus it's on a short card. Wich means nothing once it's freed and on the track lol — Team164Bruno
  • Nice Speed Blaster! My favorite casting. :D I have no idea why I love it so much cause it aint fast, but I do. — WorpeX

Toy show today... 

Matchbox cars were a good score

hidden speed in here, $4 for set


Probably one of my better flea market Hotwheel'n days. Got a smoke'n deal on a pair of 80's Hot Ones along with a lot of 20 FTEs. Another vendor had a loose HO's Fairmont, a HO's 442, plus an early color-shifter Chevy for a buck. Also picked up a few mainlines for good measure. This definitely beats empty Walmart pegs.
 


  • RLD has created a monster, great line up and pick ups here — Traction-Event
  • He was gone long before he found RLD...although now FTEs probably mean a bit more — redlinederby
  • Treasure galore!!! — Mattman213
  • Brian V speaks the truth. The fascination/illness is well into it’s 3rd decade. — Team164Bruno

So many cars and still can't make it to the top 4..... ugh! 

So, let's open up another one fresh one. 


My Nascar mail haul. Now to mod a few for @Sub4ra

A nice Camaro lot of loose and carded for $10 off ebay and the others were finds at grocery store and dollar tree. I like the 180 sx matchbox.  Dont know if I'll open that one.

Stopped by an indoor race car show and out of the corner of my eye caught the unmistakable colors of a table full of Hotwheels for sale. Needless to say the vender now has a few less cars to tote home. 


  • How you guys get all these FTEs is pretty spectacular. There's more FTEs than TP right now. — redlinederby
  • While I admittedly have my radar up for FTE's and such, this was just luck. This same vendor also had multiples of all of the latest, greatest, hot ticket Hotwheels. I was focused on the FTEs but asked myself the same thing, how does he get all of these great cars? Especially since his pricing was very reasonable across the board. — Team164Bruno
  • I am suitably envious! Living on the "wrong" side of the pond where FTE's are basically unobtanium, pictures like that make my mouth water! The closest I can find are the colour changers, which while not actually FTE are reputed to have nickel plated axles, so "may" be faster. — PeteB

50' track pack...now I can finish my timed Test Track...finally being able to record times and go from there...do believe this will increase the Speed coming out of the LoS Racing Grounds 


  • Congrats! I need a timing system bad, would be a huge help for sure! — Mattman213
  • Score! How much that set you back? I've kind of given up on getting another roll for my track, prices always sky high. — redlinederby
  • Talked him down to $80 which included the shipping...was planning on selling the two cars at the HW Convention...not anymore — LeagueofSpeed
  • I like that. Nice find! — Team164Bruno
