Mongoose....got this on ebay the other day. It’s resin and pretty good details. Got it for $84 + shipping winning bid. . Not a bad price considering what the others are going for. 

. Yes it’s exactly like what I have ....right down to the rims and interior except red seats only no dash and yes black. 

Even the red calipers .

Mongoose...that’s the exact corvette model I had. Is that a $13 price tag on the box ? You are right it is big and very good detail. Cool calendars from the past. That is the same Mc Queen car I got our grandson for Christmas. 

I’ll try to post some diecast tomorrow Saturday. I’ll surprise you. It’s been raining here for the past 8 days straight. Going Bonkers. Chris has snow in Phoenix today. Crazy weather.

Hey Slo Lane, yes that was the price on clearance at the Hobby shop quite a while back!!  I just couldn't pass that up for that price!!  It is still in the plastic wrapper on the box!  The McQueen Car Picture is really pretty cool in that it's done in 3D!!   :thumbsup:         Sooner or later it will eventually dry out!!  :)         Later Bud!         "GOOSE"     :peelout:

Hey Slo Lane,   that's a pretty good looking Resin model of the Jag F type / R AWD model!    It looks like it's Carbon Fiber all around the controls on the console!    (Yes, it's exactly what I have).   ????    :shrug:   ???         Am I missing something here??            Later Bud!        "GOOSE"       :peelout:

Better connection: Dean Moon (Moon Eyes Racing) owned the small shop where the first Cobra, CSx2000, was put together by "shel and his team.  Also, glass pack mufflers were the exhaust used on the 65-66 Shelby GT350 to scare the Corvettes out of the way. :cool:

Hey 66GT350s,   back in the day when I just turned 19 I bought a 64 black StingRay Coupe!    That car was equipped with a hi-po 327 CI. running a 3/4 race cam w/ solid lifters, 180degree  aluminum high -rise , 4spd. close ratio Hurst shifter, heavy duty racing clutch, racing suspension in back with dual "CHERRY BOMB" mufflers providing the cool music!!   LOL    :hysterical2:

My StingRay was probably pushing at least 400 H.P. so I have to say there really wasn't that much out there that my car couldn't handle and when I race, I race to Win!    Nothing on the street scene ever scared me, and I would run with the best of them!   Quarter mile, stop light to stop light, or follow me out on the High-Way were I was in my domain!!   A lot of people don't realize how fast a good running small block gets up in the RPMs so quickly if it's tuned right!!     P.S. Don't get me wrong, I love the "Cobras" and all the cool old Shelby's too!!

 I miss the (GOOD OLD DAYS), and had a hell of alot of FUN!!     :)       Later Guy!               "MONGOOSE"        :peelout:

Ah, yes, those Cherry bombs would send mothers running out to the front yard to grab their kids when that santanic noise on wheels came by.  I put them on my nice new 67 Cougar XR7 as I wanted dual exhaust and that is all that would fit.  Trouble is, they would corrode and rust withing a couple of years back then and blow the glass shreds right out.

 

BTW, I am the fourth owner (since 1982) of my 66 GT350.  First owner was an Airforce owner who bought it from the Ford delaer in Colorado.  He liked to do night oulaw drags in his 63 327 Corvette (probably 350 hp) and was doing well until these white Mustangs with blue stripes started blowing him off the road.  So he traded his 'Vette (I affectionately call them "Tupperware" Chevys, but only to the local Corvette Club members) for a nice, new sapphire blue with white stripes GT350, which I now still own (but added a period correct option, a 66 Paxton supercharger).

Back to topic. love your Hot Wheels collection.  I have only HW early Mustangs, Shelbys and Cobras.

66GT350PS....... That’s a cool story about your 350. Back in 1980 I bought a 66GT350 for $10K. It was kind of a show/driver . I had that car for like 12 years and sold it for a 66 Corvette 327/350 coupe 4 speed side pipe car. The vette was a concourse matching #s type car. I’d give anything to have them both back today. Love those small block corvettes . Love those 289 fastback 350’s more.

Mongoose good old days........

Back in Detroit in highschool we did exactly what the American Graffiti movie portrayed. Cruising and racing but I didn’t have the fastest car on the street. Those Mopars , SS396 and GTO’s were the hot set up. Once in awhile someone showered up in a 427/435 vette and here we go. We would all go out to the new intestate being built to determine the winner. Those guys had a serious system figured out to avoid the cops. It was fun to watch but my 65 442 was no match for them. Heck I talked my mother into buying that car because I was in college at the time. Two years later in 1968 I transferred to another college and the cruising days came to an end. Those were the best days of my life chasing girls and driving through the drive ins.  From Woodward to the big boys on telegraph rd and back to the A&W in Plymouth Michigan. Fun fun fun until daddy took the 442 away..lol.

I do remember seeing a 66 350 for the first time in Plymouth mich ....a rich older guy owned it. He never did the cruising scene but till this day I can picture it sitting in the guys garage next to his large home. Plymouth was more a upscale area and had a few corvettes and jags running around. The girls were pretty cool Also. 

Ps I love these old stories fellas  

Later slo lane. .:shift:

The cherry bombs that I had on my 64 StingRay lasted as long as I had the car, and I owned it for over 4 years!    I was single and living at home and my MOM really hated those Cherry Bombs when I came home at night!  I would shut the car down and coast into the driveway to keep her happy!   :)   My mufflers probably lasted longer because they were always blown clean! LOL     My StingRay is a ex Fuel-injected car, but I do have a fuel injection unit for it , but right now I prefer to run my Holley!  I collect diecast Mustangs,Cobras, GT-40s, Shelby Cobra Daytonas, lots of Vettes, tons of Hot Wheels, and lots of other stuff auto related.   I even happen to have a full size Cobra Wall Hanger with the headlights!  Check-out past posts on the diecast site!       And, yes Corvettes were called "Tupperware" at times, and I don't take offense to that!     Later Guy!                 "MONGOOSE"      :peelout:
