Nice kit.I built a Petty car awhile ago.I built the car as if it was just raced,& banged up a bit.

This is a new tool, or well 75% new tool kit (as it uses the base chassis/suspension that's universal to their own 1/25 kits) from Salvinos, it doesn't have anything to do with the old MPC kit.

Yea but that Matt & Debbie Hays kit was a great find.$20 bucks,and it was sealed.It was at the end of the show,the best time to go through the swap meet.Most of these guys don’t want to pack all their stuff up,and lug it home.He was asking for $40,i made him an offer of $20 as a joke,and he went for it.I was shocked.

Went to the Hobby Lobby store this morning (40% off week) and picked up the 1970 Buick GSX that I wanted, and the 1969 Charger R/T that Joyce wanted me to get (I will use it for paint practice 😉). They had a problem with crushed kit boxes so I didn’t purchase all the kits I went in for; will look for them during the next trip.  New kits were all at the $39.99 price point.

Meh......

Depends on what you're looking for.  Jason (great Matchbox connection) is two releases behind as Mattel is pushing out to big box retailers first.  The guy that the Roadrunner kits had five kits and quickly sold his other three.  The guy that had the Monte had about ten kits but all were overpriced. Overpriced POPS characters. Lots of higher end Hot Wheels that Mattel puts decent wheels on a $1 casting and nice card art for $8 a piece

This past month has been motorcycle mania for me. It started with the Tamiya KTM with rider, then the 1/25 Yamaha dirt bikes, yesterday I took the plunge and won the Tamiya 450 Honda CR with rider. and this morning, I ordered the Tamiya rider alone to go on my Revell Baja Husky. Should be cool!

The Honda and the Rider have to come from Japan, so they may take a wile to get here.
