    I don't know where you can buy the detailed 1/24th scale cars and trucks anymore since the Franklen Mint and the Danbury Mint stopped production.I bought quite a few of them.

    It's too bad the Danbury Mint, and Franklin Mint, no longer offer die cast cars... the detail that of their products was amazing, including some that had operating crank up windows, and cloth folding convertible tops! The California Kid is one of my favorites; it is rare and pricey! I bought a more affordable one that is missing the headlights, rear view mirror, and rear bumper. Replacement parts are not available; I hope to rob my model car junk box and add the missing parts.

    They do still offer die cast cars. I just got an ad from Danbury Mint this week for a larger 1/18th scale car.

    Back in a former life I had a little side business customizing diecasts, mostly vintage Nascar.

    Sorry for the small pics, the internet was a lot slower back then.

    So since nobody complained about Muscle Machines here are a few in the mix.
    Started collecting late and stopped early before it got out of hand, gotta concentrate on the real steal. At the risk of being mundane here's my stash and thank God it's the end, can't compete against this crowd! I do take comfort in "like minds think alike" or something like that.............................
    PS, Also can't compete with the photography, some of you should be working for PlayBoy.....................................
