Hey Chris, love the1/18 Greenlight Shelbys KRs!    It looks like one of them is done in lime green, and I think that color is kind of rare in the real Mc-koy.   I'm a big fan of the look of the inboards on that blue KR, very cool!

I'll try and post more pics in the next few days.

Later!

Hey guys, I was pretty busy today so I did post some cool pics of some full-size diecast. LOL:lol: It's a very cool 1952 GMC, C.O.E. custom car or truck hauler and it's about 80% done. The truck runs and drives. This would make one "Cool A**S Hauler"!!!   I'll be attending the very big Iola WI. car show and huge swap meet today.    Later!

A look at the rear of a Moffet 69 in contract to the previous 70 Boss.

A look at a weak moment with a computer and a credit card and a really weak moment for the Ford GT

Lastly, special paint GT500 KR from Acme. This is from the defunct Mustang Magazine Legend series. Good magazine, and Tom Shaw was a force in Mustang publishing for many years. Note the tool box in the truck, there is also a full spare kit and serial number in the trunk as well.

Hey guys,  Hey Slow Lane:  is that steel wheels with dog dish hub caps on that 70 Mach 1, it sure looks like it!  Also, I have to tell you those posts of the Smokey Mountains in the background were simply amazing!  They look like they were taken by a professional photographer, is that what you really are or was ?  :camera:   Also, by the way, it sounds like the apple fell a little ways from the tree.    :drop:    With all your awesome "Big Boy Toys" over the years how did that happen!! :headscratch:   "Curiosity killed the cat"!:hysterical:

Hey Chris, very cool Batmobile and the price was right!   Got to love those red spinners.   :cool:

Hey Slow Lane,  even if you didn't take that pic of the Smokeys, it's still a really cool pic in my book!    Also, if I remember right, weren't you and your brother when you guys were younger photographers for a magazine at track events ?  That had to be really cool and fun to do and also maybe meet some famous drivers.  Also, I gathered from a previous post that your son isn't really in to the car culture like you are,  but that's fine too!  And heck, you and I always have our Grandsons to groom in our image!!!  LOL:lol:    P.S.  Don't tell my son-inlaw!!!:)

Later Big Guy!

Mongoose... Yes we took pictures of many many races. The coolest guy was PJ Newman and one hell of a driver at that. He started racing at age 51. Can you believe that ?  2nd picture is me standing with my hands in my pockets. Just before he had to get back in  his car I believe . Hell thats 1973 I think  🤔  

My son was riding in my 67 corvette in the subdivision when I hit the brakes and he hit his head slightly on the glove box door.....He was like 5 and that put an end to liking cars . But I also hit him in the head during practice with a baseball at age 7 ..He went on to play college baseball for GT and the Rockeys for 3 years. Go figure and yes I’m working on his son and daughter as well .

Hey Slow Lane,  It must of been pretty cool hanging around by Paul Newman in the pits.  I have a picture of one of his old race cars that was driven at Road America, and if I remember right it was kind of a light purple color.  I'm sure hanging around tracks and taking pictures of all the race cars got your adrenaline going!   Sorry about your son when he was 5 hitting his head in your Corvette, because something like that can effect a young kid sometimes in a negative way towards something.  I too, had a very negative attitude towards my family Dentist when I was very young after he slapped me across my face for crying because it hurt alot.  I never forgot that moment, and it took a fair amount of years before I could trust the dentist again!  Well, I guess we both still have our young Grandsons to try and peak their interest in our cool and fun hobby of playing with the "Big Boy Toys".   LOL  :puppy_kiss:       P.S.  My two daughters learned to like cars alot, but then the oldest one ,about 37 decided that her and her husband would move to San Fransisco and find new jobs and then they sold their car. Now they use their "Boosted Battery Powered Boards" to get around alot.   And my younger daughter 34 likes cars alot, but her Husband wouldn't even mind driving a friggin mini-van, can you believe that!!  Her and I used to always say I hate mini-vans!  She's the head Industrial Designer were she works.  At one time, when she was younger, she said she wanted to be the head of the design dept. at GM. Go figure!

Got this in the mail today. 08 Shelby KR. FRANKLIN MINT 1:24 scale pretty good detail for under a $100. Carbon fiber on the mirrors and front spoiler. I asked the guy to check it carefully for paint rash. It was packed in the original box. No paint rash on this one. But some of my older Franklin mint models are showing growing signs of cracking in the paint. Very very small but never the less there. 

More pictures later. 

Edit...I got this delivered yesterday ......but not by the mail lady 😂

Hey you guys,   I attended and showed one of my collector cars this past Sunday at one of the midwest's biggest all free car shows.   It's alway's very popular with all the car guys and clubs and we had about 1,200 cars in attendance on a beautiful Sunday afternoon in this cool park setting.   The cars went up to 1988, so my wife and I showed our 1987 Mercury Cougar 20th Anniversary Special Edition.    There was a total of 5,002  20th Anniversary Cougars made, and about 800 of them were shipped to Canada!    So, with that said, I'm posting some full size diecast, LOL.  of some pretty cool pics of:  428C.I. Ram-air Cobra-Jets, Very Rare Boss 429, Very Rare 67 Shelby Survivor (Gold Color), a few cool Hot rods, a super chromed- out Hemi Hot Rod, and a few others. :)   Also I'm posting a picture of an engine with a big (Gold) air cleaner for all you guys to try and guess what it is in?????   Good Luck!  :hysterical2:

Those aren't KRs. Look at the air cleaner. Neither was the gold car, the scoops should be closed off by the airbox which seals to the ram-air air cleaner..

Nice A. O Smith shot.

Hey all you guys,  Here's a few pics I took recently.   That first one is my cat "Ace", he's keeping one of my diecast keep warm by laying on the cover and looking for "Baily" , Slow Lanes dog.   The next display is on my wall in my car room, and it was a past present from my wife, and it's a Neon lite display of different year Corvettes.   The next two pictures are of two 1/64 diecast Muscle Machines that I got for $1.50 each at a recent swap meet that I just couldn't pass up on that price, and I also bought a number of Hot Wheel cars for two for a Dollar for my  Grandson.  :cool:
