  1. I had a red 409 Super Sport with a 4-speed. I was 50-2 in street racing, and the only two I lost to were cars that were way more "worked than my stock 409... This is a pretty promo car...
  2. This is a nice promotional piece showing uni-body construction. I have one missing the front wheels... They are rare.
  3. To all you GUYS! I enjoy the comments...! I have busted on my father for decades about it. It was a cool blue pedal car that I loved and looked exactly like the one I found. It is amazing what the...
  4. These cars are pliable so you could pretend it was wrecked by crunching it in... Remember when there were no video games and kids had to use their imaginations to play? My son's can't imagine a time...
  5. The year was around 1929 I believe... These toys were expensive for the time and worth a bunch today...
  6. The rally wheels work well on this car. The lines of the '66 were classic.
  7. This is one of my favorite Matchbox recovery (tow truck) vehicles. This one looks like it is in great shape.
  8. Great photos. I have most of these but none with the boxes. The boxes can be worth more than the vehicles... Great pictures.
  9. Thank you for your comment. It's usually a time thing... I try and get them in all at once. Point taken thank you. I was in the room and just haing a little fun yesterday. It will be a while befo...
  10. Yes.. There are two of them. I didn't notice when I took the photo...
  11. I have also been collecting kits and this one has to be rare. Great box art...Thanks for sharing.
  12. Yes... We did that too. Now I could kick my self... Some of those cars are valuable today that were thrown away. If you look at the show and tell under model cars you will see a junkyard shot I to...
  13. So American (even they now sell more Coke in China than the U.S.), so nostalgic. The colors are brilliant.
  14. Excellent! Thanks for the information...
  15. Great collection, nicely displayed. Some interesting cars in your group.
  16. This was bought at Carlisle PA's car show in the 80's...
  17. Not sure. They were behind a cabinet at the Christmas museum.
  18. We did the same with the ramps. Only we were stupid enough to lay on the ground and jumped over each other.
  19. You can buy something old, and soon it can be more valueable and add character. You buy something new and soon it is just old. It takes a generations or more to make it old and it takes it being des...
  20. The "Grump" just passed away March 29th. This car (actual car) won 190 races out of the 200 in competed in... One of the most successful drag cars in history. Mike Cassidy
  21. Ebay! It is the place the tells you what people are willing to pay. The only true measure of the market.
  22. These Mercedes are strombeckers I believe. I acquired two more and the track too. They seem to be very common. I would love to see a race between amt, eldon, revell and other makers of the day.
  23. The beverage truck is (I am guessing because I am am work, not at home looking at it) a Maisto or a maker still in business. Nothing expensive, rare or hard to find. It could be an ertl. This parki...
  24. A dollor was a great buy... They were re-issued some time ago and the re-issued cars are worth much less than the original 60's issued Turbine promos. I have an original with the box, and a re-issue...
  25. Newark, DE has Mainstreet where for 30 years people would cruise and find races on a nearby road. I found a lot of victims with my 409 Chevy and my later LS-6 powered Chevelle. It was not unlike Ame...
  26. Timex store display cases are less expensive and who well when stuffed with Hot Wheels.
  27. How many times have I watched American Graffitti? 50 or so... Two Lane Blacktop features the same '55 Chevy driven by James Taylor (the singer) and is also a favorite along with Hollywood Knights.
  28. Yes, I am 50 and still roll 'em around. The Husky's have an articulate suspension allowing the like like leaning on the turns... Still a kid at heart... Aren't we all if we like these old toys?
  29. Beautiful example of a well kept toy...
  30. I appreciate your helping me remember these cars (senior moment happening... & and I am only 50...) I do have all of these and I just bought a fair condition Python in pink. I am told that is the ra...
  31. If this is tin, I would gues $70 to $80 at least. I bought a lot my toys @ Woolworths so I love the subject...
  32. This room is so GORGEOUS... it is like what I would dream about if I were to have a perfect room. WOW... Very tastfully done....
  33. You know... I really will pull them together and see. I know I have the AMX (2) Cherger in green and mint, Hot Heap in several colors, T-Bird (3) Vette(2) VW, The Fleetwood..? The truck version.......
  34. The car being towed is the same year wagon (1965) as the Chevelle promo. I bought off of ebay. As much as I love model cars... I have no talent building it and this demo derby version was done well....
