OK fellas......I just purchased 10 or 12 new cars (1/18’s) on the web. They’re coming from various places. Some are used (no box) and some new. Won’t tell you what I spent. :drop:  Gina was NOT keen on it, but I think you’ll ALL see why I did what I did. There’s some really cool “rare” cars in the mix! :thumbsup: 

Stay tuned for pics.

Ok, I finished painting the wheels and reassembling the car...

I posted the two of these I bought, a couple months ago in their boxes.  They’re Bigtime Muscle 1/24’s. I bought this one (had black wheels) and a black one with black wheels and red outer lip, with red stripes as well. I’ll leave the wheels alone on the black car, because the red lips look sweet.

Love the flamed custom. One of the things Hot Wheels does best.

This is a bit of an odd bird. The oil can packaging simply says 1970 Ford Mustang. It has the Boss 302 hockey stick stripes and spoiler, while the hood scoop is pure Boss '9.

Your Hot Wheels 70 Stang looks pretty cool like that.  It looks like the designer was going more for a custom look that people might like better than just a stock 70,2+2 fastback.  Even the rims look like custom mags from what I can see.  But in reality you would think they would of labeled the oil can different, like Custom 1970 Mustang or Modified!  Hey, I know what happened, the head designer was out sick and a new-bee took over!!!!   LOL      :hysterical2:

Very cool collector sets and Steve McQueen, (Bullitt) memorabilia, Nice!    Bullitt stuff should be pretty popular right now with the introduction of the 2019 Bullitt Mustang.  :thumbsup:

I'm posting some red, white&blue pics for the 4th of July. It's a Carousel 1/18th Racing Corvette with very nice paint and awesome graphics.  It was driven by Dave Heinz and Bob Johnson, No.57 Goodyear Racing Corvette. Also posting a couple other items in the red, white&blue theme. :thumbsup:

What year is that license plate?

Hey ChicagoChris,  I've been collecting automobila for a lot of years and I'm sorry to say I can't remember when or where I purchased the license plate.  I looked at it for a date or any other markings on it front and back and the only numbers on it are on the left bottom on the front side.  You can see them in the picture of the plate. The number is 99D-1328 it's very possible that this could be a Ford No.  Good Luck Buddy!     :)   P.S.  Now after thinking about it a little longer, I think I might of ordered it out of a Ford Catalog years back.  Check a Ford part's dept.

Hey Chris, I'll be totally honest with you when I say I was wondering the same thing after I got the model out.   Even my wife said what are those for and I said to her I'm not totally sure yet. :headscratch:  After looking at them, I've come to the conclusion that they may have been added to help keep the brakes cooler during the 24 hours of racing.  Front brakes on a racing car take a huge amount of heat and they need all the cooling they can get.   The No. 57  Goodyear Racing Corvette, has a L-88 427engine and it's coupled to the M-22 rock-crusher tranny.  This car sold at Barrett-Jackson for 2.6 mil. " Very Cool"     :airquote:

Googled Ford Part #99D-1328 to no avail.  Guessing it might be from 1999 hence the 99D prefix. Pretty cool.

Ok guys, this is the first round of new cars I purchased.  The ‘65 Vette is a brand new in the box Maisto 1/18. The rest are used 1/18’s. All cars are Maisto’s except for the ‘69 Camaro Pace Car. It’s an ERTL. All of these cars have real nice detail. This seller has LOADS of cars....mostly gently used ones. Lots of different brands and models too. His attention to packaging them without boxes, was OUTSTANDING!!! 

First, is a rarely seen Ford GT90 concept car. I took the pic with the rear spoiler “up”.

43172217472_d35dc062f5_b.jpg

The attention to the fuel injection on this (for Maisto) is very nice. 

43221984771_07801a7413_b.jpg

I bought this one because I had an ‘03 yellow Z06 for a couple years. 

We’ve also owned two silver Boxsters....one regular and one ‘S’. I liked the stance of this in the sellers pics!! It was only $17

I thought this Cobra ‘R’ was real nice for a Maisto as well. The paint looks wet!! Note the hood prop rod, back up in there too.

These cars oughtta make nice editions to my very eclectic collection. 

I have another round of five brand new 1/18’s on their way too. Should be here tomorrow, I’m hoping.

I've been wanting to add on of Greenlights "II's" to my collection, just can't decide which one. They all look great. John Clor had a ton of input on this series, and they are doing some 1/64ths now as well.

Looks great, and the red 'R' is awesome as well. Friend of mine had a real one, and it was some brutal thing to drive.
