The Danbury Mint & GMP offerings are super !! Wish they didn't cost SO MUCH !
rbantique, that 58 watson t-bird is my favorite they've came out with. its so well detailed as all their cars are from danbury mint
Hot Wheels are cool. This is all I got:
I love toy cars. Even when you only have 5 or 10 bucks in your pocket, it is a thrill to walk into an old antique mall where most people are looking for wicker chairs, oil lamps or fiesta ware and discover a vintage well loved plastic or metal toy car pushed back to the rear of a shelf somewhere.
I have a lot of neat old toy cars, and while many of them came from friends, family or my own childhood, a LOT of them were just flea market discovered, unloved and forgotten by their original young owners, quickly rescued and welcomed into my little collection where they could be loved once again...
A couple of quick phone pics from the shop...
not me. go ahead

Yup,those old toys bring back fond memories. Man, I spent countless hours playing with toy cars and, later, building models.
Here's a survivor from high school days.
I've got the 1:1 scale version sitting in the yard too....
I've never seen a tin toy Willys before; it's great! Do you know who made it?
This one is a Yat Ming white metal....
Check eBay, there is or was one on this week. It was near mint condition and was around $40.00 I think. I just paid $45.00 for a yellow NYLINT Roadster at a small antique mall. That is the most I have ever paid for one, but it was mint perfect!
The Willys is white metal? I can't understand the dents and rust, then. Unless you've simulated them??
above it's a real barnfind, small things can be great, too..with adjustable steering and real strong friction drive
this taildraggin' 49 Buick's just chinese crap, but still a Buick!
The Jetsons arrived in this green "lucky-bag-whatever", but the real surprise underneath reads "340 km/h", after calling the SCTA they made me a life member in the famous 200mph club, it should make over 211....!! who's to prove? and a real bargain for only 10 cents...
Did you post pictures, 40two? Can't see 'em.
Sorry, can you see 'em now? i made this album a public one.. i'm not a PC pro, you see... maybe if you reload
That worked. Thanks!
This thread never fails to amaze...
does this count, building a go kart to look like a 32 ford
its not to scale lol, and obviously the engine is in the rear, but i wasnt sure how to make the front grill so its on hold
That looks like a fun project!
few of mine....
now these are great, who made them? love the headlights, looks like '37 Stude, like the one i'm watching on ebay for years. love to have it as my next project, but my bank clerk says i should finish my current ride first! damn..forgive him for he's not like us!
