Hey Falcon, very cool Stangs!  The Kalifornia Kustoms ones, I'm not really familiar with and your 70 Mach 1 in the green color might be kind of rare.   The four decades of Pony Power is a nice looking display!    P.S.  I'll try and post some pics a little later and I'll also mention to BB and Mach 1 how about posting some pics!      

Later!               "MONGOOSE"        :peelout:

An nice 24th M2 release from the 50th.

boss 302 50th 1x.JPG

boss 302 50th 2x.JPG

That 70 Boss 302 is looking pretty good, especially with the cool "Shaker" and red line tires.  It looks like it's a fully decked out Boss with all the cool goodies,rear slats,trunk spoiler, large chin spoiler,twist lock hood pins, graphics, and Magnums.  I'm not sure, but it looks like it is painted a metal flake white custom paint, non-stock, but it looks nice!

The paint is a custom look metal flake white that almost looks pearl. I tried to capture some of that in the photo, because it certainly does make it stand out. With all of the goodies, it was some time later that I noticed the blue interior. It's....'unique'.

Do look forward to seeing more posts from you and the others!

Hey Falcon,   yes a blue interior would be unique and the pearl looking paint does look good on that car!  We'll have to try and get more interest for this site!  Also,when my wife and I were at our local "Art Street", a long time childhood friend of my younger brother and me is usually always invited to participate in "Art Street".  He is a very talented "Artist" in the pencil illustration field.  I don't know if you collect Batman and Robin pics, but this Artist (Brent), has a pretty cool looking pencil illustration of Batman and Robin together!  It's pretty cool and he sells prints of it.  My sister and I both own some of his very cool work.  He has quite a few different people illustrated in pencil, like Ozzy Osborne, Wille Nelson, John Wayne, "Adam's Family"(Morticia& Gomez), Marilyn Monroe and lots of others!  He is a very good artist and it is his fulltime job!  

Later!

This is some original at I had commissioned from two very prominent comic book artists, Neal Adams and Mike Grell. I  enjoy automotive art as well as comic book art.

Hey Falcon, that's some pretty cool illustrations of the "BatMobile" and "SuperMan"!  Very nice pieces for your cool collection of "BATMAN" memorbila!    The person who did the cast sculpthure had quite a unique imagination!  "Pretty neat piece"!:rockon:

P.S.   I also just put the word out that we could use some more input to this thread from

the rest of the "Car Guys"!   We'll have to wait and see if they want to contribute!!  :waiting: 

Also, Falcon, Brent the "Artist" that I mentioned, can be found at www.brentcrabbart.com!     Later!       "MONGOOSE"     :peelout:

Hey Falcon,  I'm posting a couple of pics, and there not diecast, but I hope you still like them,  I know I do!   One pic is of No.95 "Lightening McQueen", and it is still in it's original box hanging on the wall in my car room and its gives a different perspective  of things I like,  Steve McQueen!    I bought it a few years back on clearance because I thought it was cool!

The other pic is a pencil illustration of the interior of my 64 Corvette StingRay done by my youngest daughter while she was a art student in high school.   And of course, in my eyes it's "Awesome"!!

Cool postings, Goose. Anything Lightning McQueen is neat, but that original art by your daughter is awesome. Thanks for sharing and I hope her talent serves her well. Wish my eyes and hands could talk to each other that well.

Hey Falcon, thanks for your nice comment on my daughter's drawing of my 64 StingRay interior.   She's currently the Senior Industrial Designer wear she works!    I too,  wish I had the talent to draw, but I know that ain't happening!!!! LOL. 

Falcon: I'm posting two pics with the stories that go with them, and there both for the same cool article.   I hope you'll be able to read the whole story for the article because it's pretty cool  what some people will do with their life, and also contribute to selfless acts of kindness and not want any monetary gain for them selfs!!!   

This article was in a Senior Lifestyle magazine on hobbies and other things to do, and when I saw the cool article, I thought you would probably really like the story about this gentlemen!

Hope you enjoy it!   Later!

Awesome story, thanks for sharing. I don't collect for any kind of monetary gain, I buy what I like and share with those when and where I can. I appreciate the work and talent that is out there and enjoy hearing and reading all of the stories of the histories of those great pieces of work and collections. I think you might be cut from the same cloth and like sharing with those like minded.

Mongoose here are some pictures of my 2010 Shelby GT500. 1:18 by Greenlight. For the money it’s got pretty decent details. I really like these wheels and they aren’t black . Kind of the same finish on the 19 Mustang GT with the 2 PP option. 

Now you have to get Chris back over here.:tumbleweed:

First off , I would like to take a few minutes to pay my respects of the passing of one of our late great actors today: Mr. Burt Renyolds of the Smokey and the Bandit films and many others!  I've had tons of laughs while watching him do his stuff in the movies and he will be greatly missed!!!  (R.I.P.) Burt! :(

Thanks Slow Lane for posting those cool pics and helping us out because we could use more input from "All us Car Guys" that frequent these forums!  Again much Appreciated!:cool:

Later Big Guy!

Hey Slow Lane,  give me a little time, you guys got me pretty busy right now on the C8 Forum posting my pics from my "Road America" visit, you know all the resizing and stuff takes a fair amount of time so please put your suspenders on and don't get your undies in a bundle!!!   LOL :lol:     P.S.  "Baily" says he wants you to spend more time with him because he thinks you like your cars better!!  :(

Been pretty under the weather of late, and between that and tons of work...at work (you retired guys wouldn't understand) I've been able to look in but not contribute. Been kinda quiet around these parts.

I really like the Kiddie Cars from Hallmark, I've included a few as well as one of the more unique pieces in my collection. A 3d printed GT350R. It was offered through Ford, and may still be. Not the best finished piece by far, but something very different.

Hey Falcon, glad your feeling better!  I've been kind of busy lately on the C8 forum resizing pics of cars and stuff from shows and "Road America" pics.  My pics resizing has been giving me a little trouble lately and not working the way I want and taking to much time!  I will try and post some pics in the very near future after I figure it all out!:headscratch:Also, BB let me know that all his diecast is basically all boxed up for moving until his house is finished and then he can put together his (Man Cave)! :cool:  

Hey Falcon, you got some cool little cars there, the mustang, and of course the "Batmobile"!   That blue 3D, 350R, as you said, is very different, but unique!

Ok Mongoose...here is a Corvette GTP that raced at Daytona back in 2015. It’s not a diecast but hey it’s cool. Made by spark (only 4” long ) and just released and got it today. Lots of detail. I used to love seeing these race and the v/8 sound was amazing. Yes it’s mid-engine and cool . Front end might look a little similar to the up and coming C8 ...maybe 

The bottom picture is the real car from 2016 when they changed to side exhaust and the side window treatment. Action Express was folded into Whelen Racing also. Two teams under one organization.

Hey mongoose ....this re-sizing is a pain in the buttocks for sure. I have to go from 3800 down to 950. I tend to loose details on small cars.  Oh well 😔

Hey Slo Lane,  even if those cars are only 4 inches long, they really look well detailed and present very well!   Very cool cars, and yes one is starting it's own Split Window!  I hope to figure out exactly what I can do on the re-sizing site to get it to work good again because it's really pissing me off!!!   :censored:   :headscratch:

Hey Slo Lane, what ever happened on you acquiring the No. 1 GT-40, 1/12th,red, GMP or Acme diecast?   Not a good casting or not up to your expectations on the detailing, or maybe your  still looking around for a good used GMP!       "Just wondering"!  :shrug:

After I found out it’s just a re-issue I decided not to get one. After owning the 1:10 ford GT  MK lV it’s hard to spend that kind of money for a lesser detailed model. My 1:18 Ford MK lV is enough.
