Just went through this whole thread I love it. here are a couple I remember and don't think have been mentioned. (Sorry no pix) 65 el Camino has two hard hats. 53 sedan delivery had various tools along with the 40 ford pick-up. Not sure of the kit I do know it was a van that had an RC helicopter. 66 nova has an engine block and stand also think the 68 charger has a stand. Then I have a few odds and ends already mentioned.

about the bongos, see second or so page of thread because they were already mentioned.

 

I just saw this on ebay, is it the chrome sprue shown above but with more trophies?

anyone know where that sprue comes from?

 

now at the top of page 4 or so is a big collection of trophies.

one in particular is very rare, intricate and sought after.  it is in the upper left corner of the photo I reproduced here. unfortunately the part(s) shown there are only about half of the show, there are at least 6 very delicate angel figures and one large trophy cup with a larger angel figure on top of it. this was from the Uncertain T and I have been looking for parts for it for a long time...I have whats shown in the pic, but in resin, but the resin angels were too flash to even use, broke every one of them trying to clean them up. anyway who evers photo that was ought to look around for the rest of it cause it will be worth money if it was complete...I would probably be prepared to offer 50$ but I would also probably be outbid handily for it on ebay at that price.

Those dolls are scarry.I don't understand the point of them.

To cover up flaws in the chrome bumper. This awful accessory has been at car shows for the past 20 years.
