Seriously tho, the detail for a 1/64 is awesome Slo Lane. 

Edit- the wing on that PJ looks like my very own Gurney car. :blush: 

Hey Chris,  Heads up buddy, If your wing on your "Gurney" looks like the wing on the PJ Hot Wheels it's really going to look pretty funny because it's going to be grossly undersize and wouldn't look very good!     J.M.O.     LOL. :lol:          "Now" that's funny!!!!                 Later!           "GOOSE"          :peelout:

Hey Slo Lane, When both Collies are together, Nick always lets Blaze bring the ring back.  But when there separate  Nick enjoys playing with it, he's a year older than Blaze and he's the one on the right side!    It's kind of funny but that ring used to be a frisbee until my two boys decided to play tug of war with it!   There very hard on frisbees!   :thumbsup:

Bailey is always on the hunt for anything small that I might drop. She will steal it and run off to the dining room. It’s her storage room for anything she can get her mouth around. Papers even small toys when the grandkids are here. Off she goes and says catch me if you can. She is funny as hell when she does that. Even outside she will try to hide an acorn in her mouth and deposit it in the dining room. Just a little thief. 

She is asking how fast does she go ?  Faster then you bailey.:dogwalk: She is trying to grow a mask like the Lone Ranger ....so nobody will recognize her . When she steals things.  See how darker her face has changed over two years

Hey Slo Lane, your right about "Baily" getting darker around her face.    I personally think her look is getting better with the darker shades on her face!  J.M.O.           P.S.   My two boys love to steal just about anything and than they get in a big power struggle to see who ends up with it!    If you didn't know any better you would think from their sounds they were killing each other!    "Stupid Dogs", but kind of funny!         "GOOSE"            :peelout:

Haven't abandon y'all, just been a lot on my plate, and that looks to be the case at least until years end.

But here some goodies I dusted off for your enjoyment.

Hey Falcon, glad you enjoyed the "Rat Fink"  Batmobile, Custom by (Muscle Machines).   I thought it was pretty cool because "Rat Fink" by "Big Daddy" (ED ROTH) was pretty popular when I was a kid!    It was on Ebay used a few days back and it wasn't cheap!   It might still be on there!       

You have some "Cool" cars, especially the Boss Hoss in the special color paint!    The "Gulf Color" is always very cool, especially when it's on one of my favorite cars, GT-40!!!     P.S.  I think it looks like your Hot Wheel's Wonder Woman package might be missing a jet possibly!    :shrug:         Later!       "MONGOOSE"          :peelout:

It's there, it's just invisible!!! That's actually the second WW Invisible Plane that HW has done. This was a mail-on done in conjunction with the movie, while the first one was a Conic Con exclusive, first conceived as a joke. It actually brings stupid money on Ebay.

I've considered the Rat Fink Batmobile, but it is quite pricey.

Hey Falcon,   I was kind of wondering if the WW plane was a invisible one, but I really couldn't tell for sure, cool!    Yes, it's kind of funny what people will pay for certain items on Ebay.  I too thought the "Rat Fink" Batmobile was pretty cool, but as you said way to pricey!!    :shrug:              Later!        "MONGOOSE"         :peelout:

This is on of the original ones on ebay. I could have bought one years ago for $10 or so. Now they're just nutso!

https://www.ebay.com/itm/WONDER-WOMAN-HOT-WHEELS-SDCC-2010-1-64-INVISIBLE-JET-EXCLUSIVE-RARE/332871106684?hash=item4d80aa007c:g:r20AAOSwduxbk8JG:rk:1:pf:0

Pretty amazing for something that actually started out as a joke at HW!

The one I have is worth nothing compared to the original.

Hey Falcon,  any body that would pay $180. for a few cents of plastic, whether it's rare or not, should go get their head examined!!!!   :yup:      There can be a big difference between "Rare" and "Desirable".     Lets say you have a 67 Mustang, 3 speed stick, 6cyl., with a bench seat, is it rare, yes, is there a big demand for it, "NO"!!!

I lived that with my Cobra Jet Grande'. Rarest of the rare, less than 30 made in '69, yet worth only about 1/2 of what a Cobra Jet Mach 1 brought, if than much.

And the invisible plane link I posted was the cheapest one I saw on ebay!

Hey Falcon, totally understand where your coming from!   It's really all about the "Demand" for that cool fastback look even though you had that totally awesome engine under the hood! Sometimes life sucks, and isn't fair when it comes to what's desirable and the rarity of it!!!!!    :thumbsup:        P.S. You just have to find the right buyer, because he's out there someplace!!!   :)

One of the things about the car that appealed to me was the total grocery getter look of the car, from the whitewall tires to the wire wheel covers and its vinyl top, it just screamed 'yawn'. Until you stuck your foot in it. I do miss it. I've heard rumors about where it is, and seen a few others like it. But I als remember back in th elate '70s and early 80s another ugly ducking Mustang that certainly turned around in a big way, the '66 GT-350H. No one wanted anything to do with them or their owners, at Mustang or Shelby meets. It was just a worn out old rental car. Who cared back then?

Hey Falcon, It's kind of funny you mentioned back in the day who cared back then!   It reminds when the "COOL" 63 Split window Corvette came out and some of the car magazines trashed the car because of the back window was very hard to see out of !!!!   Actually some owners even cut the split out of their 63 Split Window Coupes!!   Needless to say they eventually decided to put the split back in because of the rarity and "Huge"  collector value!!!   :cool:      Later!        "GOOSE"        :peelout:

Interesting point, I've actually seen a few '63 coupes go through some of the various auctions with the split removal kit still in place. They may be the truly rare cars now, much like the Ferarri Daytona coupes that are now convertibles during the post Miami Vice craze that saw kits to lop off the roofs of the high dollar prancing horses.

Hey Falcon,  a long time back I met this big local Corvette expert and he invited me and my girlfriend (now my wife) over to his shop and showed us around.    Sitting in his shop was a bright green metal flake 63 Split Window Coupe.  He told me that it really was a combo of a 64 & 63 put together to look like a true 63 Split Window and they were planing on selling it out of town!!!!    "Go Figure"!!                 Later!            "GOOSE"          :peelout:

Hey Mongoose my brokers office is closed today so I can’t buy that gold Ford GT......... :hysterical2:  

Been busy setting up the snow village for the grandkids . See How many mustangs you can count..... Got to keep this site diecast you know . There’s also a Ford car dealership in the village . That’s why so many mustangs..

The last couple  pictures are from last year when we had SNOW  ❄️ and the kids over. The last picture is a toy from the 1950’s. They don’t make em like that anymore. It’s the same gauge steel they used to make cars with back then.

 See that little hand in the last picture...our granddaughter trying to reach for the toy. Will says no way it’s mine !

Hey Slo Lane,    very "COOL" pics of some of your "Stash"!!    Really cute pics of your grandson, he looks like he's having a lot of fun!     I count around 10 mustangs that I could see! Pretty cool Christmas Villages, and I really like the UPTOWN MOTORS!   Your big green delivery truck is pretty kid friendly and looks like it's made like a Sherman Tank!!!   To bad the new toys are made so cheaply now!     That silver looking cigarette ash tray stand looks like one that my Dad used to use when he smoked in the house, it was very heavy and well made!

P.S.  You should buy that very "COOL"   (GOLD) FORD GT-40 , and you would be the only one to have one!!!     A real (CROWN  JEWEL) in your "COLLECTION"!!!:thumbsup:      Hey Slo Lane, we could call you :  Golden Eye, Nah, or Golden Finger,Nah, or how about just : (MR. GOLDEN) !!!!     LOL      :hysterical2:       Now that's (FUNNY as HELL)!!!         :hysterical:

Hey Slo Lane,  Scalextric cars are usually pretty cool and sometimes a little pricey!    Your Gulf Set is pretty cool looking, nice colors, graphics, and striping.    Years ago when I was a young teen my buddies and I would take our slot cars downtown to race them at the local track, very cool!     When I was real young I got my first H-O electric racing car set that I really wanted and I'll never forget the two cars that came in that cool set!    One was a very cool , White, 63 Split Window Corvette, and the other car was a cool, Red, 66 Jaguar XKE and the two controllers had real cool chrome steering wheels to use on top of them!   I Loved that cool race set!!!           P.S.   I guess we'll just (Little Boys) inside that never really grew up!!!  LOL    :headspin:                            Later!                                "GOOSE"          :peelout:
