    I think you should paint it light blue.

    I have a couple of NYLINT '27 T roadsters...Anybody know where I can score some wheels (rear) for these? Someone put some weird ones on here...
    Is there a 'Nylint & Leslie' guy somewhere?

    I also posted this in 'The Antiquated' section..........

    These two Hot Wheels aren't super rare but there's a good story behind both............

    Christmas time 1981..........I was in the third grade at Ray M. Schmitt elementary in Westminster Ca. As was customary back then (probably not politically correct now) the day before Christmas break our class had the annual party and gift exchange. We drew numbers, grabbed the corresponding package and returned to our seats to see what we received. When I started to unwrap mine I was mortified.............it was a perfume box. Being that I was an eight year old boy I was embarrassed as hell to see that under the wrapping. I shoved it in my backpack as quickly as I could and avoided all the 'what'd you get' questions from my friends. After school I walked home, looked at the box and debated just throwing it away without even looking inside. Fortunately I was home by myself, there's no way I would have opened it if my Mother was there. Can you imagine the years of therapy, terror and embarrassment an eight year old boy would have to go through after his Mother told everyone how 'Michael got perfume for Christmas, isn't that cute' or something similar?
    Here's what was in the box.................

    A few years later at the swap meet at Long Beach State I was finally old enough to walk around by myself and my Dad had given me $5 (big bucks to me at the time) to buy something (he was probably thinking something along the lines of a burger and soda). I wandered up and down the aisles of neat old junk not having any idea what I was looking at (not much has changed in the last 34 years). I came upon a guy with a huge table of original, 1968 Hot Wheels still in the package. He was asking $5.00 each which I thought was an astronomical sum considering you could get new ones at the toy store for .79¢. I stood there looking at them, picking them up and putting them down for a good half an hour. I'm surprised the guy didn't tell me to kick rocks. I finally decided to blow the entire five spot on one Hot Wheel (I must have been crazy).
    This is what I bought that day.................

    Unfortunately, as you can see I didn't leave it in the original package but it's still about as nice of one as you will find that's been unsealed for so long. I always took very good care of my stuff.

  28. Here's a Tin Monkeemoble. I thought I'd share, In remeberence of Davy and Peter. RIP. The photo album is my wife's, she made it as a teenager back in the day from {Teen Beat } and other teen magazines. The Monkee-moble plays the shows opening theme song. The dolls are finger puppets. They're the wife's also.:rolleyes: LOL Ron.... 20190313_092616.jpeg 20190313_092459.jpeg
