  1. Man, I just love those BoS models! I just looked at some reviews on YT and a lot of people can't understand why BoS makes these without a chassis, engine, or opening doors. I understand because they invest in the exterior details and interior details. The things you see immediately. If they made opening doors, engine and a chassis with the same attention to detail, the cost would be astronomical, like the CMC cars. Plus they do a great variety of cars no one produces like this Imperial! My only regret is I wish they made them in 1/24 scale. 1/18 takes up too much room.
  2. I never grew up. I'm still a 7 year old kid and I get excited and go vroom vroom vroom when I play with my cars! Just ask my wife!
  3. That's just sad Gary. Of all my Mint diecast to arrive through shipping, only only one was busted up. My Danbury Mint 1927 Stutz Black Hawk had no original container, but did have a collector case. The seller put a few Styrofoam peanuts in the case with the car, wrapped the case in bubble wrap and put it in a cardboard box. Well, you can imagine all the broken plastic bits once it arrived. The bumpers, mirrors, tail lights, windshield, and hood ornament, all broken off. the case was destroyed too. I did get a refund and was able to repair it more or less. It's a good 5 foot car. Oh yeah, one caveat. I did get another car damaged that was shipped in it's Styrofoam container. My Danbury Mint 1957 Ford Skyliner's rear springs were broken upon arrival. The whole car fit poorly on the plastic pedestal in the bottom.
  4. The rear window is all wrong. Just like the Greenlight Trans Am.
  5. Another win on the Bay. Couldn't pass it up cuz it was cheap. Very dirty and missing the top. Looks like it's all there and in good condition. I'll see it in about seven weeks.
  6. They build up really nice! You'll love the result! Mine is non factory green one.
  7. It is from Franklin Mint. The outer box with missile launcher added. I haven't actually seen it yet, these are pictures from the eBay seller. I'm still in Canada until November.
  8. Won this the other day. The mirrors are off, but included and the hood comes off. I don't think it will be too hard to fix and it was cheap. All the accessories are there too along with the foam and outer box.
  9. A couple of new acquisitions University of Racing Champions (Icons) released their latest wing car. Bobby Isaac's K & K Insurance 1969 Dodge Daytona. It's amazing how many people have been waiting for these cars to be released. What's really remarkable to me is how few races they actually won (6) over the couple of years they raced. You'd have thought they were more successful the way everyone remembers how fast and powerful they were. I'm hoping the first winner, Richard Brickhouse is released soon. The Ray Nichels 99 car was one of the most beautiful cars ever raced. My quest to obtain all the Danbury Mint Budweiser Delivery Trucks for less than $50 each gets a little more complete with the 1937 Chevrolet in standard livery. They also made a Christmas version. I'll need that one, the 1931 Ford Delivery, and the 1933 International Truck to complete my set. These are not my pictures, I haven't seen the diecast yet. Back in Canada again.
  10. That's awesome! Embrace the future!
  11. Over the years, I've seen a lot of T-bird radios listed as promos on eBay. I guess because they use the majority of the promo, they get called a promo. I've never seen the other ones, but I've never looked for other makes in promos.
  12. Went to my west Wichita HL and there were about ten kits marked down to $7.49. I got an AMT 1975 Datsun pickup, AMT 1965 El Camino, AMT 1986 El Camino SS, Revell 1966 Chevy Suburban, and an AMT 1966 Mercury. Pretty happy!
  13. I almost bid on one recently that was up for cheap. I didn't because I have enough for now. Good looking diecast though Randy!
