I have hundreds of them some dating back to 68 with the original release of Hot Wheels , I also have a lot of the AFX & Lifelike slot cars , the lifelike can  be easily modified & run far faster then stock . I still look for the new Hot Wheels , at least they are inexpensive to collect !!

Hahah!   Hey HemiOrange70!  When're we gonna play some ROCK BAND?!  I saw your drum controller in that one shot.

I've slowly been building a 'Cuda collection, but most of my toys are (big surprise here) Vipers.  I also have some hotwheels of Chargers, Challengers, and even that Tomahawk motorcycle concept that CP has under his monitor.  It'll be two weeks before I get pictures, and this thread will be long dead by then.  :)

I no longer allow myself to go into the Hotwheels/toy car section of any store, because almost every time I do, I see something I have to buy.

I'll have to get pics of my humble collection later.

Thanks for the info, nuke!  :thumbsup:

A Hotwheels Demon?  Never saw that before!  Very cool!  :grinyes:


All the stuff posted here is so cool!  Glad to see others like toys too!  :grinyes:

I like the diecast/Hotwheels/models too.  I like RC stuff too.  My basement is squirreled away with stuff.  I still have models from when I was a kid that I haven't started. 

Here's a pic of just a little of my stuff... if I used the money on the toys for my Challenger....  :faint:

Van picture is the van from "The Gumball Rally" that could hold 200 gallons of gas that smashed into the fireworks factory.  You can see the gas tank through the sunroof.

yeah i know when i first saw it from far away i said "WHAT !!! A 71 CHALLENGER !!! :clapping: " then i got closer to it and said ... oh nvm... although it was kool to see a demon i also saw the Javelin and since i dont like to buy more then 2 Hot wheels at a time i passed on it ... until i started to regret it ... lol that was about a month ago and i couldn't find it again... until a few days ago when i found that one and the only 69 Charger in the store. They also had a few Custom Chevy Vegas didnt appeal to me much though... im in the Valley and i get my Hot Wheels at Wal-Mart and Target mostly.

Post by: EDGEFIND on June 23, 2009 - 04:42:20 PM
Alright, I finally took some pics. What I have showing is a large majority from 2 generations, starting on a third. My dad and I built this collection together over the years from pretty much anywhere we came across old cars, mostly Mopars, at flea markets, garage sales, Mopar Nats, etc. He loved the old original promos, AFX, 1/18th Ertyls and pretty much anything else he could find or had from when he was younger. After he passed away in 2000 my mom gave me the collection and I continued building upon it adding to it my Johnny Lightning stuff and auto movie genre related stuff. Now my son is adding some of his Hot Wheels so it's a traditional family hobby and all I can say is that I have a very wonderful and understanding wife. I hope you folks might enjoy it as well. Please ignore the dust and spiderwebs as I haven't cleaned in a while. :2thumbs:

Found this one yesterday on the clearance shelf in the toy department of a Target store yesterday.  Sort of cool, but of course it should be #77 and have a T/A type hood scoop, among other things.  But for $9 I couldn't pass it up.

UPS just dropped my latest "Can't resist" purchase on my doorstep yesterday. :naughty:
This is the new WIX 70th anniversary set of vintage and new Dodge Challengers, and it is really cool!
As you can see from the pictures, they really nailed the scale here, the new Challenger is a giant compared to the original! (just kidding! The new one is 1:18 and the vintage one is 1:24 :biggrin:)
And true to the current standards for die cast, the detail and features are amazing.  I feel sad for the poor Chinese workers carefully putting these things together for a buck or two a day and a bowl of rice, it must take hours to craft each of these intricately detailed masterpieces together....
The '09 even has the cheesy hood prop that Dodge for some reason puts on R/T's and SE's instead of the hydraulic cylinders the SRT8's get!
The 1:24 Challenger has the same level of detail as the 1:18, the only diecast models I have seen in this scale that have this level of detail are the Franklin and Danbury mint models.
The set even comes with a survey card you can send in, return along with a sales receipt for the purchase of a Wix air filter, they will send you a poster of the box artwork, and a $20 coupon toward a future diecast purchase.
I called around to some local Wix retailers to see if they stocked any, none had them, so I ended up buying mine off the place you can usually find anything, ebay.  There are a bunch on there now, they are bringing $70-$95 plus shipping.  Since the Franklin 1:24  models alone typically sell for $100+, this is a pretty good deal if you like B5 Challengers!  :thumbsup:

I saw the flyer on the WIX cars in the spring and had asked two of my retailers to get me a set, thinking I'd have a better chance of at least getting one set. They both phoned last week to tell me my cars were in and since I had commited to it I bought both.
I'd like to trade the sealed box of Wix cars for a 1.24 challenger (blue?) with a black vinyl top

I'm interested in knowing what the retail price of that set was if you bought it from a Wix dealer?  I called a few but they didn't have any, so I just bought my set off ebay, where the price is "what someone is willing to pay".

The price on the set varys, the cars were to be a program in selling filters. Sometimes the retailer will sell the cars with an order of oil filters and some sell them outright. lets just say I have enough filters for the next couple years. I think the cost to the retailer is about $70.00 cad.

I went to a Ford dealer in town to get my son a Mustang shirt for his birthday and they had about a dozen Mopar diecasts 1/18? No Fords??? I laughed and said OK who's the Mopar fanatic working at a Ford dealer! The parts guy grunted and said I'll sell you the whole lot! I looked at them and said not at that price1 He said OH no! Went to the computer and said 40 each for the GMP and 25 for the HWY 61 1 So I bought 3 cars. Green Roadrunner(GMP) Yellow AAR and a sublime Cuda!
 I'm thinking about going back and getting all the rest and flogging them on E-bay!

You got a great deal!  I bought the Hwy61 AAR off ebay back in 2006 and paid $46.00 + $21.95 shipping ( US Bucks ) and when it arrived in the mail I had to pay another $8.25 Can.  I'll have to check the local Ford dealer around here and snoop around.

Great collections!

I've seen the 'Vanishing Point' Challenger on ebay - very tempted to get one to tide me over until I can get the real thing...  :jumping: :crazy:

EDGEFIND - awesome collection! It's like a treasure trove! I especially like the Bullitt poster - and you have a double bill poster for 'Dirty Mary Crazy Larry' and 'Vanishing Point'! That's amazing!  :droolingbounce:

It's a 1/24 scale. I would think any NAPA could get it because it's all NAPA stickers on it. It's promoting their tools and equipment.

I just built one of those.  Too bad the hood scoop isn't opened up.  Would be decent detail.

I modified the scoop to make it open on one of the T/A models I have built over the years.  It wasn't too hard to do, I just carefully carved away the plastic I didn't want there, then made up a new lower part of the scoop with a piece trimmed from a sheet of thin plastic.  Then glued that piece on and used a little putty and sanding to make it look clean.

I had to restrain myself Saturday, I was at a new indoor car show near me, and someone in the vendor section was selling 1:18 "blems" for $39.95 each.  Looking at a couple I liked I didn't see any of the flaws.  Among the blems was the '71 orange with orange stripe Challenger R/T and one of the FC7 Mr. Norms T/A Challengers with no white vinyl top (I have the version with the vinyl top).
I had to keep reminding myself my house and garage are overflowing with car models and that despite being out of full time work all year, I have been spending a lot of money lately.  Somehow I managed to go home that day with no new toys!
However, that night I had a little party, and my sister and brother in law brought me a little present.  I hadn't seen this one before, a Maisto blinged out bronze colored 1:18 Challenger!

It's like a drug addict or something I have to tell myself over and over , JUST WALK AWAY! :smilielol: I have a real soft spot for any racing diecasts except Indy cars and the like. Lemans racing, Nascar, and Trans-am are my favourite! The triple black T/A looks great!

There are some real nice diecast models available of Trans Am Penske Camaros and Moore Mustangs, these companies are really missing a big market here by not offering a Posey Challenger and Gurney 'cuda (though there might be a problem for a diecast company to get permission from Hot Wheels to use their name on the cuda replica).

When I do models, if it's a straight build without custom work, I think I usually do it in about a weeks time, other wise it becomes back shelf material.  I guess I like to see results fast.

Right now I'm working on the Nightrider's escape car from Mad Max, a '72 Holden Monaro that's converted from a '72 GTO as there are no Monaro kits easily (cheaply) available.

Nice haul! I almost picked up the M2 mopars. That Roadrunner set as well as the Daytonas looked great. Did anyone pick up those road warrior weaponized Challengers at Target? They looked kind of cool too. I think they were made by Jada called Battle Machines.

Here they are: http://www.battlegrip.com/?p=5275&cpage=1

Here's my humble offering to this thread. Out of the 8 pages I haven't spotted one of these yet. My 1970 Hemicuda Micro machines R/C ZipZap.

Very cool Zip Zap!

Just an FYI, there were Challengers made several years ago.  :2cents:  Looked like the Fast and the Furious Challenger, Orange with black top.

I never actually bought a ZipZap car, but I did get the Challenger and Camaro shell for it from Radio Shack. As Super Blue 72 said, they were from the 2Fast 2Furious flick. I like that 'Cuda though.

Edgefind:
wow, I just came across this thread and that is one awesome collection.
I have been looking for any 1:18 shaker cuda, either a plastic model or die cast, and you have one thats is exactly what I have, or at least close enough!!
What brand is the sublime green billboard 71 cuda in the lower cabinet?
Could you let me know?
Thanks. It would help in my search. Low priority on my list right now, but I'd love to find one.
Title: Re: SHOW OFF YOUR TOYS/Latest Purchases/Finds!
Post by: EDGEFIND on December 01, 2009 - 06:32:58 PM
If you're referring to the one in the clear case under the two old promos, that is actually a 1:24 Testors Die Cast Model. Here is a link to one so you know what the packaging looks like:

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B001TNOMUG/ref=asc_df_B001TNOMUG974831?smid=A1NY1ZEF1WLI0V&tag=dealtmp1-20&linkCode=asn&creative=380341&creativeASIN=B001TNOMUG

You can find them cheaper though. It's a nice model with most of the work done. I had originally picked this one up at Wal-Mart in '99 along with the clear case and I had assembled it for my dad for his birthday that year. I hope that helps.  ;D

Thanks burdar for the help, but I'm disappointed its a 1:24. The detail is so much better in 1:18.
I'll keep my eye open for a 1:18 scale, ir I'll look for something closer, and modify and paint it to match my car if I have to. :bigsmile:

I've always been more than impressed with Ertyl's offerings. My only issues have been the huge increase in price over the years, especially for the "limited edition" stuff. It can get pricey really quick. However, if it's something you really like, then it's well worth every penny. :2thumbs:

Farmboy, that Snake is awesome. My buddy has one and I can't tell you how many times I've sat there watching the tires spin. :biggrin:

I need to take pictures but, Target has sweet 71 Cuda matchbox sized cars. The copany is M1 i think. I bought Black with Red bilboard, red interior.

They have White with Red Bilboard and Red with White Bilboard. They look sweet. Typical that it says Hemi Cuda but has 440 Bilboards and 440+6 on the hood scoops.

Well Santa came a little early this year as I could not help myself. I went into my favorite local speed shop and saw the WIX filters blue Challengers set and just had to have it. When i walked in the store I noticed they had a full size poster advertising for the car set, so while the parts guy was getting my order together (which btw they had everything in stock so no waiting for me on anything I bought today), I asked him if they had another copy of the poster that I could perhaps have. They had another complete promo package with the poster and a display card which he gave me!! I was so excited. So below are pictures of the display card, poster and the car set in the box (just got home haven't had time to open it yet). I also recently bought a 1:18 scale panther pink hemi cuda diecast. I bought this diecast because it is of the exact car my friend owns! Not another car similar to his, but his car (which btw is a survivor car with the original paint), so of course I had to have it.

i was at my local wal-mart and i went to take a look at the hot wheels, i said to myself "i doubt anything new is up" BUT WAS I WRONG ... i only found ONE car but this car is one of my personal Hot Wheels HOLY GRAILS lol

having found my '71 Dodge Challenger Johnny Lightning at Spring Fling 09 in the swap meet im not holding on to much hope that Hot Wheels might bring out a version.

but i found whats been one of my favorite cars of all time .....

for a Hot Wheels car its VERY detailed almost as if it was a Matchbox....

They've been all over ebay too, since September.
Just need to find a seller who will ship to Canada!
A month or so back an ebay seller in North Dakota had something like 40 WIX sets he was selling for a buy it now of $39.95 each! I'd already bought a set for around twice that price, but bought a second set from him, and sold the '70 Challenger from that set (to a guy from Canada) for $37.50.  So I ended up with a second '09 model for about the cost of shipping.  :)

I can try. I know a lot of them had small cracks in the cases for whatever reason and I figure if I'm paying that much for a 1/64th, it had better be good. They cost $10.00 plus tax if I see them again. I'll be out tomorrow and if I see them I'll pick up a couple for you and whoever else may want one. For those that have never seen them at your local Wal-Mart, they are usually piled into a blue American Graffitti box with a couple dozen of other cars and mini displays like this one. You may have to dig through them to find them. Chryco, I'll shoot you a note if I find you one.  :)

I found one extra for Chryco so far. If I find anymore I'll let you know. Out of 5 Wal-Marts that I went to, only one had them so far this year. I'll let you know if I find more and pick 'em for you. :)

It's been out for a while, I have one and I am sure I have had it well over 5 years.
It was included in a 2 car set that included a '70 Pontiac Trans Am. It may have been sold in a different set also.  But most of the ones I see for sale are loose like the one in that ebay auction, it seems rare to find a set in the original packaging.
There are also a couple Hot Wheel AAR cudas, and someone on another board said that HW is working on a new more accurate AAR, the ones they had before were inaccurate because they are shaker cudas with the race car paint scheme.
Maybe they'd reissue the Challenger too, that would be a cool set, to have the 77 Challenger and the 48 cuda. :2cents:

Any good leads for picking up a couple of Ertel 1:18 Display Cases?  They are on eBay, but usually have high shipping charges.  I'm on vacation next week, so I will have a chance to check with a local hobby store (if they are still in business).  I may even try crafting my own if I have the time.

Thanks, Charlie

Sorry if this was already posted.  :dunno:

I just picked up an XMODS Radio controlled 2009 Dodge Challenger.  This isn't my pic but it's one I got off the net, I'm too lazy to go take one.  :faint:

It's cool because it's digital proportional.  I also got the Stage 2 motor kit that steps up the motor from 27,000rpm to 30,000rpm so it increases the speed from 880 feet per minute to like 1200fpm.  Also comes with ring and pinion gears set for more low end torque or for top speed.  A metal bearing kit is also available but hard to find.  All wheel drive kits are on clearance for $8, the Stage 2 motor upgrade kit was $8 as well.

Best of all, it was half price!  Reg=$50, I paid $25.  Available at Radio Shack stores.

It's 1:28 scale so 1:24 scale model car bodies will not fit unless the chassis is modified/stretched.  I have to figure out how to do that....

Post by: Super Blue 72 on January 10, 2010 - 11:36:21 AM
If you are picking one up, make sure to indulge yourself in any optional parts that you see because they may be phasing out the accessories from what some are saying.  Before with the previous generation XMODS they had all sorts of body kits, tire, wheels, lights.  Now I only see an all wheel drive kit, Stage 2 motor upgrade and VERY seldom a metal bearing kit.  The accessories I have seen are all 1.2 price as well.

I actually picked up the bearing kit because not only will it get the speed up and prolong the battery life, but it'll take out a lot of the wheel play.  When you get one of these stock out of the box, the wheels will wiggle , like it has massive fore and aft camber issues.  Supposedly the bearings will get rid of a lot of the play and make the car more responsive.

With a fresh set of batteries, this car will do donuts easily on a smooth surface.  The AWD kit will come with a front differential unit and tie the front and rear differential units with a metal driveshaft which will allow the car to do "drifting" but may hinder top speed.

Scored this on Ebay, love the look and stance of this bad boy!  1/16 scale, dcent detail.  This model has the supercharger and 5 hole Cragar rims that look like the old Lambo Countach rims.  :icon16:  Has the shackles too that jack up the car in the rear.

Sorry, off topic, but I was thinking of your Charger the other day.  I saw a '72 Charger Rallye original U code 440 car that I think had the SE option, had the flip up lights and formal roof!  Needed work but had soooooooo much potential!  I thought of your car as inspiration but alas no time or $$$...  :(  That's why the model will have to do.  I do like the fuselage cars.

 :iagree:  Made by Nikko, I have one as well.  Spins the tires easy in carpet!  :burnout:

They also had in this seres a '69 Charger, '68 Camaro, and I think '69 GTO adn '67 Mustang.  May have been another as well.  They haven't been in the stores for a while but you never kno when they may turn up.  I haven't seen the Cuda in a while but I think the Camaro and Mustang show up hear and there.  I think the Mustang was in a Fast and the Furious series of RC cars in the last 6 months or so.

Nikko made some very cool 1/10 scale cars, a white 70 Trans Am and a yellow Superbird Road Runner.  They had extra hoods, one body color and one clear.  Did something else too, like light up or something.

The price tag is still on the box, $13.39!  They had 2 or 3 on the clearance shelf, I thought about buying a second to "flip" but decided not to. Yeah, I know, I goofed!
The engine lights up when you turn it on.

Ha!  you got one!  We'll have to race if we ever get together!  I have Band # 9 for the Challenger......and Band # 3 for the 2010 Mustang...  :misbehaving:  Sorry, had to get another for racing purposes with my son.  :icon16:  Actually, the color looks REALLY nice on the Mustang.  It reminds me of MEK's Challenger, it's like a metallic burgandy wine color.  I actually a couple of years ago picked up the optional wheel/tires packages for model cars so now I can use them on the XMODS.

What's the battery upgrade?  :clueless:

Hey, weird, I just picked up the Ecto mobile last night!

In addition, I got a very cool looking frost green Superbird that has funky side panel of lime green paint. Here's a Ebay pic:

no way man lol i actually saw that bird and i almost bought it but i decided against it ...

and as for the battery upgrade i missworded it ... its the stage 2 motor that i have ... i bought a bunch of xmods stuff in 08 for some reason radio shack had  most everything on clearence so i bought the 4 wheel drive and tire upgrade and the stage 2 motor pack which i never put it on the Camaro concept and now for sure its going on my challenger.. thanks a bunch for the heads up on the 50% off sale ... i also saw the other models but the challenger only attracted me...

if you get a chance go for the $8 all wheel drive upgrade BUT be very carefull when installing it ... you WILL drop pieces... but when your done your car will go faster...

So... the 4 wheel drive kit makes the car faster?  :clueless:  I thought it would slow it down, at least on the straights?  I thought I read that at least on the trucks you lose some top end?  :dunno:

Sheesh, things to look forward to....  :faint:  I have 1 Stage 2 motor upgrade but 2 cars.  To keep them equal, I might install the Stage 2 motor on a Nissan Titan I have.  Don't know if it'll work as far as the gears go but I figure the little truck might need to go faster....


So... the 4 wheel drive kit makes the car faster?  :clueless:  I thought it would slow it down, at least on the straights?  I thought I read that at least on the trucks you lose some top end?  :dunno:

i dont have any trucks so i wouldnt know but it should go faster on the cars because instead of 2 wheels spinning you get all 4 spinning ...

check the little chart to see how you would like your stage 2 motor to work ... More torque or more speed.

my Camaro has 4 wheel drive, foam tires, & some special brakes i bought for it ...

My chally has the 4 wheel drive and the stage 2 motor ...

i like to have various upgrades on different cars ... wish i could find a truck or hummer....

if you run into any problems with the 4 wheel drive or the stage 2 motor let me know cuz i pretty much know the 2 kits from top to bottom and i ran into the same problem twice on the 4 wheel drive kit and 1 small problem on the stage 2 motor but it took me two days to figure out the small problem... so if you run into it let me know and ill help you out.   :cheers:

i have some of the most surprising news ...

hot wheels at one of my local targets have gone up from .92 cents to $1.02 ... come on man ....
Title: Re: SHOW OFF YOUR TOYS/Latest Purchases/Finds!
Post by: Super Blue 72 on January 22, 2010 - 09:31:28 AM
Thanks for the offer on the help!  :thumbsup:  We'lll see when I get a chance to install either kit.

Yep, I think the Target in my area ia now $1.07 for the Hot Wheels.   :dunno:

As far as the trucks I've seen them locally on craigslist.  I got my Titan new from Radio Shack when they were on cleance a couple of years ago for $20, the lowest price I have seen for a new XMOD.  They had a bunch of them and only the Titan was on clearance. 

Cool thing about getting these trucks used is that since they are only 1:28 scale, they really don't see much outdoor action therefore less abuse and dirt inflicted on these little RC trucks, unlike 1:10 scale RC trucks.

Secondly is that is you get them used, a lot of times they already have a lot of the hop up parts on them so you save some $$$.  :D

See this ad.  He put $100 of parts into his F-150 and is selling for $30.

like i said its been about a month since i bought any hotwheels... i was in a shopping center and i remembered that a target was close and in my mind i didnt think they might have had anything considering every other target has had crap ... so when i walked by the hotwheels and saw the challenger i said OH CRAP .. then i found the Javy and i was glad i stoped by... the silverado was a bonus because i had seen the other colors on it before but the purple was a no brainer...

Here is my latest.... a Challenger promo box
Title: Re: SHOW OFF YOUR TOYS/Latest Purchases/Finds!
Post by: JH27N0B on March 04, 2010 - 06:01:53 PM
Here is my latest.... a Challenger promo box
That's cool, what color does it say on the end flap?
In the 90's, I traded a bunch of promos I'd collected in the 70's for a mint orange '70 Challenger promo. It had no box or decals. The dealer got the best of me with that deal, but still I got a promo I really wanted for some promos that didn't do alot for me.
Around 5 years ago, I saw a box for a Challenger promo on ebay, and it even was for an orange one.  I ended up being high bidder for around $40.  It wasn't mint, but it was intact and decent.  I was quite pleased to have a box for my promo.
Then a couple years ago, someone listed a sheet of the original vintage decals on ebay that came with the '70 Challenger promos.  I ended up buying that for around $20 IIRC.  So now I have a '70 Challenger promo model with original box and decals!  :woo:
I just need someone to sell me the original tissue that the promos came packed in when in the box. :biggrin:
I'm always amazed that these boxes turn up from time to time.  What happened to the cars? I can see a box getting thrown away after someone bought the promo, but I can't see someone throwing away the model and keeping the box! :clueless:
Title: Re: SHOW OFF YOUR TOYS/Latest Purchases/Finds!
Post by: HemiOrange70 on March 04, 2010 - 06:11:07 PM
It is go mango. I have been looking for one for a long time. Paid alot also. I need a hemi orange car, but they are easier than the boxes to get....lol
Title: Re: SHOW OFF YOUR TOYS/Latest Purchases/Finds!
Post by: JH27N0B on March 04, 2010 - 07:10:57 PM
That's what mine says too, go mango.
Here are a couple pictures of my promo set, the one picture is a few years old.  I had the red '73 with no box, but later sold it after I bought a yellow '73 with box and decals.
I wish I had a red '70, as my Challenger TA is FE5.
I keep my promos in bags in my display cabinet to keep them from getting dusty.
I always wonder why they never made a '74 promo, MPC had a '74 annual model Challenger?
Title: Re: SHOW OFF YOUR TOYS/Latest Purchases/Finds!
Post by: EDGEFIND on March 04, 2010 - 07:19:09 PM
WOW! I absolutely LOVE those promos! They were my dad's favorite thing to collect too. I could get rid of everything diecast related in my collection but could never let go of the promos. They hold a special place in my heart. When I was a kid, my dad used to let me play with his '68 and '69 Dodge Charger promos while watching Dukes of Hazzard. I don't know what happened to them after he passed away as I now have the rest of his collection. I'll have to save up some cash and hunt them down. :2thumbs:
Title: Re: SHOW OFF YOUR TOYS/Latest Purchases/Finds!
Post by: JH27N0B on March 04, 2010 - 07:35:51 PM
I love promos too, but unfortunately, like most everything Mopar, they cost major money.  Since I am a Challenger guy, I concentrated on completing my collection of Challenger promos, and not pursued the others.  Late 60's B bodys bring a ton of money, cudas bring a ton of money.  At one time I saw desirable color cudas like purple and sassy grass green going for a grand if mint with box! :22yikes:
So I have my 5 Challengers ('70-'73 and the AMT 2008SRT), a '92 Viper, a '74 Charger, and a '92 Stealth in my promo collection.  I'll work on getting some other Mopar promos after I win mega millions!  :grinyes:

SPRING FLING is around the corner and im hoping to find some more 71 challengers or and challengers for that matter ive gotten pretty good deals

funny story about this one ... i was eye balling it from a dude but didnt ask because most of his stuff was overpriced ... i later walk around the swap meet a bit more and i came across another one ... i asked how much and the guy said $12 ... i told him id give him 6 he declined saying it was half way done and he could get more for it ... i then walked back to the first guy and asked him how much for his ... he wants $2 lol its missing wheels but everything else is in it SOLD !

$2

I picked up one of these at the World of Wheels this past weekend.  HotWheels "Toy Cars" series.

went to redondo beach for some good ass seafood and coronas ... stopped by the Westfield in Culver City and found this bad by

the first 1:24 scale challenger ive seen at any of the surrounding Targets & Wal-Marts...

I found one of those in silver at my neighborhood Walgreens where they have Maistro cars for $6.99!
I was not too pleased when I took it out of the box and found one of the rear wheels and tires was missing though!
A few months later I spotted a Maistro 1:24 '70 Challenger R/T in red with white vinyl top for the same price at that store, I talked myself out of it when I thought about my 2008 with the missing tire.

I actually was in that walgreens again yesterday picking up a few things and looked at the toy section, the red R/T was gone. :(
The silver SRT was still worth the 6.99, even with the tire missing.  It is on the side not visible when the model is in the box, so I just display it in the box! ;)
I have a few different variations of the Maistro '70, a purple hardtop and a orange convertible.  They are OK, nothing special, so I can't get too excited about buying another color when I see them.
Their SRT8's are better I think, more accurately proportioned.
I have some Johnny Lightning 1:25 scales T/A's and R/T's.  Those are much more accurate and detailed looking models.  However, they are usually around twice the price of the Maistro models.
I spotted a Johnny Lightning Challenger R/T at a Walmart the other day, it was black with red stripes which was cool, however the black was sort of a flat black, which really didn't look good, so I passed on spending the $14.99 on it.

Post by: thenuke1 on March 21, 2010 - 12:29:01 AM
maybe its just me but im a challenger buff... i try to buy everything and anything Challenger

maybe its the fact that its such a rare car even the new ones (but blame that on the high price tag)

i would jump at those 70's challengersand if i ever regret it i could always sell them for double what i paid for ...

the only toy challenger ive seen that i didn't like was the 2nd challenger that Matchbox put out which is a charcoal color ... ive seen it so many times and i never second guess buying it ... just looks ugly

when you get a chance lets see some pics of those Maisto Challys

At Walgreens they are $6.99 each or buy 2, get 1 free if I'm not mistaken.  The selection is variable.  Sometimes all you'll see are Corvettes and Jeeps.  Some times they'll have muscle cars likethe afore mentioned '70 Challenger or 2008 Challenger.  I've picked up a Plum Crazy '70 GTX and seen a '67 or so Mustang fastback in that series.  Also have Chevelles and other cars but they sell quick.

These are some of the ones I have found locally........Our grocery chain..Food Lion even had some of the 70.....Walmart, the others....

I will have to look at Walgreens as we have a new store opened now..

Looked at Walgreens yesterday 3/21.  They had only 4 cars and none of them What I wanted.......Have to look out of town. 
By the way.........the blue Challenger came from a vendor at one of our local races and the VP model came from my son from Amazon I think.  The others as stated.

No banning from me, I sometimes miss my 03 Vette.  Not sure why I sold it really, and would be very happy when I'm through restoring my other toys if there's room in the garage I'll seriously consider getting one again.  Nice car, congrats!!

I came home with this new 1:24 Johnny Lightning orange Challenger R/T in my bag along with the fish hooks! Why does an errand for a dollar item always end up costing $18? (The car was $15 and I also couldn't resist grabbing a spinner I saw in the fishing section).  :clueless:

The Candy Red & Yellow 1:18 Bill Bagshaw Pro Stock Challenger yurned out rather well. When we were shipping them out to people it took me longer than nornal as I has to stop and give each one an extra glance as I like them so much. Just a real eye catcher, and available now.

(http://i214.photobucket.com/albums/cc142/JimSCCC/50676JimsCam.jpg)

The Billy the Kid car should look decent too, and is expected about the middle of June 2010. It will have real gold foil lettering on the doors and quarter.

I shouldn't be blowing more money on toys right now, but these 1:24 scale Franklin Mint Challengers have been turning up on ebay in large numbers lately and you can score one pretty cheap.  I paid $40 for mine.
These models have working steering, driveshaft turns with the rear wheels, seats fold, trunk opens to show the jack and spare, even the flip top gas cap opens to show the inner locking cap!

Thanks guys! Unfortunately I can not display all of my collection, as my kids would get into it.

Just picked up the "Bullit series 2" at Toys R us. It shows the charger with steelies, a scrape down the bodyside, and McQueens mustang with a layer of dust airbrushed on it. SUPER COOOOL!

i think so. its YMMV. I have 2 near me and one has buy 3 for 13 and the other doesn't... the description is also iffy ... it says Maisto 3 for 13. It doesnt say if it includes the Custom Shops or Pro Rodz... they gave them to me but the cashier had to do some work to get it down to 13...

after almost 2 months of drout I FINALLY found something worth getting

for the past 2 months almost everytime i go to a store and head over to the HW section all i see is empty pegs and maybe 6 - 10 cars all of them no good... i mainly collect Challenger, Camaros, & other mopars. I saw the convertable green New Camaro ... had it in my hand and left it at the store

Last night went to target and hoping to see full pegs.... once again empty empty pegs BUT i did see one Challenger that i quickly grabbed and ran with lol

I now have both the White & Black K&N challys

Of all the interesting places, would have never thought I would find model cars at TJ Maxx!?!?

Found the remake of the 60's AMT Hippie Hemi dragster for $7.99, glue together Speed Racer with opeing engine canopy, jacks, saws, and homing pigeon for $5.50, and another I forgot what the name was but it's a dragster with an altered Ford t-bucket body on it for $5.00!  I'm not into dragsters as much but I can scavenge the engine/tires and what not.  For the price, it was a steal.  I was in AC Moore and a depending on the model they can be very expensive now, I was told because of the petroleum price.  A Penske Vette was $26.99.  :money:  Cheapest 1/24 scale I saw was $18.99. They also have some of those "bling" cars for like $6, GT-40, 2006 Mustang, new Vette.... I picked up the Ford GT.

Picked up a Hot Wheels Aussie Ford Falcon, the one the Mad Max Interceptor is based on.  I might try to turn it into the Mad Max car eventually.  First time I've seen it in any sort of diecast over here in the states.  You can find 1/18 scale diecast of this car on Ebay but they go for big bucks.  Got a Ferrari 308 too, classic styling.

Surprisingly, they are not as expensive as I thought....depending on what you call expensive too I guess.  Not that I have the money, I've seen drivers in the Boston area going for as low as the low to mid $20k area on craigslist.  I could imagine where they are more plentiful like CA of Fl they may go for cheaper or you get a better car for the $.

Here's a '78 308 for $22k: http://boston.craigslist.org/nos/cto/1944900526.html

The Detroit Tigers hat/hawiian shirt might be tougher to find!  :roflsmiley:

Saw some new RC cars at K-Mart.  Looked like 1/16 scale.  They had a new  Challenger, something like '67 Vette, '70 Superbird, '71 Charger , and '69 GTO  About $25 orso.  Didn't get one but it looked cool.  They all looked kind of chubby but the Vette actually looked pretty nice.

Toy alert: Did't get it but saw it in Target for $50.  1/43 scale, short track, only a figure 8 but the cars were real nicely detailed with Minilite rims and nice paint.


The deal is that since they are 1/43 scale, you can use these cars on much longer tracks that are made by the cheaper companies that can be found cheap at Christmas time.  Toys r Us will sell figure 8 tracks for like $10 after Thanksgiving.  Bigger tracks for not much more.  :2cents:

Been to three targets looking for that set. Didn't find it on ebunk either.  :clueless:

I know when I saw them at a local Target they only had 2 in stock.  I tried to find them even on the SCX website I don't see them and finding them on other websites was difficult.  I wonder if it is a Target only type of deal?  Might also be stuff they are slowly getting in for Christmas as well.  I remember seeing radio controlled AAR Cudas in 1/24 scale only at 1  Target at Christmas time and then never seeing them  again after that.  Try calling first so you aren't driving all over looking for it.

I'm temped to get one but it's kind of pricey.  I'm sure the quality is decent but at Christmas I've seen the figure 8 tracks that are about 8 feet of track selling for as low as $7 at Toys r Us, regularly $10, same scale-1/43 but the cars are definately not as attractive nor there's a chance they don't perform as well.

Would be cool for you to get this set and paint up one of the cars to look like your car.

Let me know if you can't find it and I can see if I can look for it next time I'm at Target.

Friend at work had this collecting dust and knew I liked model cars.  It's a 1/24 scale Fujimi GT40 from 1989.  I'm going to make a replica of the Ken Miles car that he drove to a 2nd place finish at the 1966 LeMans (It was rigged, he was winning by a lap!).  If he had won, he would've been the only race car driver in history to win the triple crown of racing in 1 year as he had already won Sebing and Daytona that year.

Anyone here interested in buying a whole collection of mopar toy cars? I would dig them out and see whats there if so.Consists mostly of Johnny Lightning (christmas orniments also) hot wheels, Match box and other small cars, @50 pieces or so. Almost all are unopened and about 15 years old or so. I have thought about getting rid of some of my stuff for quite some time but dont want to try and sell each piece by itself as it would be a huge pain. I also have some old 30-35 year old hot wheels matchbox cars that I might consider selling. I have a HUGE collection of Dukes of Hazzard stuff also but would only consider selling a few pieces from it. If you have ever been to Cooter's place in GattlenburgTn I have 1/2 to 2/3 at least of what is there. I would like to see this stuff go to someone who can enjoy and display them as they have been packed away in totes for to long now.

Not Mopar but I picked up an old Cox 1973 Baja Bug.  No engine/fan wheel, body in very good shape, tires not bad, driver rear tire rubber is hard on sidewall.  Was used a little then the engine removed for some reason. Still in very rough looking original box with instructions, was a "shed" find.  Might turn it into an RC car...we'll see...

Anyone got an engine and fan wheel for the drive gear?   :naughty:

Friday while shopping stopped by the hot wheels section at my local target and i actually found 3... probably going to go back and pick another up to modify it so it looks like my 71 chally

as for the 70 yellow chally. i was at Kmart and i saw it on the counter ... i asked the girl to let me see it looked like a camaro from the back but up close right away i knew it was a challenger ... i went to give it back to her and she said "umm its ok just take it ..."  :bigsmile: 2 challys for the price of one ....

@ DAYLEY/CHALLENGER

Those now come in blue as well .... a bit ugly actually ... the black or white variations are better

Cool police car, I've seen it and it's very tempting to get.

Reminds me of this car...

Found this in a comic book store that sometimes buys other people's collections.  No longer in production, Dick Landy's '68 Charger plastic model kit.  (Picture off the internet, too lazy to get a pic of mine.).  The box bottom is the burnout section of the track with tire marks on it.

Thanks for the link, great ideas on engine detailing there!  :thumbsup:

youre welcome,
but Ive seen some other links to some awesome detailed models within this thread (which Ive kept an eye on).
There are a few guys out there with way too much time on their hands :bigsmile:

I have a hankering for 1:18 die cast, but I'm not serious into it. About 8-10 cars, with 3 cudas, including my latest toy being a sassy grass 71 440-6 my wife got me for Christmas.
I'm in the process of stripping a few part from my other cudas to make the sassy grass 71 look just like my real limelight 71 (the colors are close enough for government work) for me to stick it on the dash at shows and cruise-ins.
Its got working seats, glove box, "real" carpet, etc. and I'm swapping a rimblow wheel, rallye dash and a few other little pieces from another 1:18 car. Trying to find the 1:18 torque thrust wheels, but no one has them in stock.
I'll post a few pictures later.

cut out the rallye gauges and about to swap them. Also going to swap the rimblow wheel setup, but havent removed it yet. Kinda tricky to do without breaking it.

working in engine area too.
Need to make the shaker bubble removable, so I'm gonna install some little pins (from paper clips) under the bubble, and drill holes into the carbs. Then to paint the shaker argent silver while still keeping the callouts. That may be difficult.
Eventually will repaint the bumpers in chrome paint, also swap out the wheels, and use a flat wrinkle finish to paint a vinyl roof!
Thats the plan anyway. May take me a while, since I can never find much more than 15 minutes to fiddle with it, unless its a rainy day like today. Only 60 degrees outside though.
Not too bad. :bigsmile:

I like to mess with models and I've done a little work with diecast mods.  I've done a couple and entered them in the World of Wheels in Boston for the model car contest and Have won Best of Show with both cars.  The car I'm hoping to make for April, if I ever get it started, is going to be the Mad Max Interceptor in 1:18 diecast out of a '69 GTO as the real diecast fo these cars go for over $100, too rich for my blood.

Here is a custom diecast I made to get an autograph but my son wanted me to enter it in the model car contest and actually ended up winning Best of Show and Best Diecast in the 2009 World of Wheels model car contest.  Factory Five Racing president Dave Smith was in the 1998 Run and Gun race where he flipped his 427 Cobra kit car.  The FFR team righted the car, put it back together with duct/electrical tape and mechanics wire and later won top honors getting the  “King of the Hill” title.  These pics are from the January 2009 WoW archives on the Factory Five Racing website.  The kit sidepipes weren't that good so these are made from solder and aluminum tubing.

Thats what the son said.   I just figured all had the Mustang card and they stuck all the cars on the same card.......but this was back in 94/95.  I should check  this out.  This may be a very valuable mint error!!!!

Locally from craigslist I found a car I have been looking around for for a few years, a Saturn Yellow Buick Skylark GSX.  He had not only 1 GSX, but 2, a black one with gold stripes as well.  I also picked up an orange '68 Charger since you don't '68 Charger diecast too often and also a black Lamborghini Countach, always a cool car, IMO.

looky look what i found ....

(http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b176/thenuke1/IMG00033.jpg)

i posted one of these bad boys before ... the 2nd 71 challenger of this scale that i found was at a spring fling swap here in van nuys....

walked up to the vendor and asked for the price ... the guy said $7 ... which was a but steep so i passed. I walked around some more and i found another guy with the same challenger and he wanted $4 so i picked that puppy up. Little did i know that my younger sister had bought the $7 challenger to give to me as a gift lol. She ended up forgetting where she put it .... 2 years later (today) she found it and now i have both !!


as for the diecast ... that dudes inspired me to finally get to work on my 2 diecasts before the next spring fling....

i have 2 70 challengers that im going to convert into 71's ... a before resto and after  resto project ...  ill keep everyone updated

Several model car kits off craigslist.  All are 1/24 scale except the Porsche 930, that one is 1/20 scale.  Got a bunch of other little odds and ends type things that she was going to throw out, even a Dukes of Hazzard Charger body, mid 80's Vette built up. Glad the other spare parts didn't get tossed.  I like the foreign stuff too.  Hard to find a Porsche 928, even the Ferrari and Lamborghinis you don't see often any more.

Just picked this up off craigslist this morning, got it for $75 which I though was decent.  The seller said he paid $300?  I dunno.   It's still in the original shrink wrap!!!!  I think it's from the mid 80's?  :dunno: 

I always thought about RC planes but thought it was too expensive and you need to go to a field to fly them.  This one is not too big and pretty simple with only a 2 channel radio.  I hate to open it since it's all original...but I got to!!!!!

right around here where Spring Fling & Fall Fling are held theres a mini airport & a small racing track where guys fly and race models.

if i where you id take it to a hobby shop and ask how much its worth or just google it make model year released. Very cool though

i remember i had a Goodyear Blimp when i was a kid lol
found it on ebay memories http://cgi.ebay.com/Remote-Control-Goodyear-Blimp-/280637500030?pt=Radio_Control_Vehicles&hash=item41574c6a7e

I did a Google before I bought it and used models without the radio, some needing or had repairs were like $100.  Not much info on this particular plane.  Never flew an RC plane before.  I'll keep lots of duct tape handy!  :roflsmiley:

I like the blimp!  That would be cool in the house!

Ok, not quite a "toy" but is a toy of sorts....  :rofl:

Mid 80's Harmony H802 Electric Guitar and 90's Dod Tec 8 Multi Effects pedal. 

From what I understand in the 80's the body on the guitars got smaller, I thought it was a kid's guitar at first but it has a normal sized neck.  The pick ups are not humbuckers but a single coil similar to p-90 pick ups.  Nice mellow sound compared to my strat copy with 3 single coil pick ups.

I find this post interesting because as I mentioned on a prior post, I am new to this board. I have always loved muscle cars and I now own 3 different ones and one classic. Believe it or not, I used to have another hobby that I was a very serious collector in and we had a chat board just like this. Here's the part where the connection comes in. I see many of you have mentioned how you collect diecast and one mentioned you have old hot wheels back to the vintage ones. Thats what I used to do. I had a very serious collection of old hot wheels which we called redlines. I had one of, if not the rarest collection in the midwest. Currently, there are two published books out there that have many of my cars in them that the authors requested. Or should I say cars that I had. I reached a point where I lost the desire of the hobby and sold my collection. Some of that money has paid for the last 2 muscle cars I now currently own. Believe it or not, for those of you who might not know, there is a lot of money in the older hot wheels. Especially the mint and rare ones. I miss my little cars but only till I climb in my 1:1's and then I think, hmmm, guess I dont miss them to much after all. I can always pull out a book and reminisce if I choose. :thumbsup:

Just picked up this Dixie Challenger this morning.  Why is there a little piece of metal that hangs from the header panel to make it look like a split grill?  The car itself looks sort of like a mix of a Challenger and a '71 Road Runner or something.  The C pillar isn't quite Challenger material.  The Chrome inside the grill area is '70 Challenger though.  Was this originally some sort of funny car?  :clueless:

The Dixie Challenger, and-its predecessor the Rodger Dodger (Rodger Dodger has a blown hemi and exhaust pipes sticking out the hood), are re-releases of 1970's Hot Wheels cars.  The front of the car is 1970 Challenger, with the 1970 Cuda vertical center grille divider added.  The back half of the car is 1973 Charger SE.  The Rodger Dodger first appeared in 1974, the Dixie Challenger came out when the Dukes Of Hazzard craze hit and it originally had a General Lee paint scheme:

For another wild Mopar Hot Wheel, check out the Bye-Focal.  That one is a 1970 Challenger with an elongated front that accomodates 2 hemis with injector stacks.  It has a clear hood with dual six-pack scoops:

Nice list, Chryco!  :thumbsup:

Cox EZ Bee II RC plane

Purused craigslist, watch the ad when it was $100, then $75, then $50 so I decided to check it out.  Another Cox 0.049 engine RC plane.  Guy said I could have it for $40 but when I plugged in the batteries the servos didn't work so he let me have it for $15.  NIce guy. 

Pic is just a representation of what I got.  No box but it was built then put on a shelf, never ran.  Engine has never seen fuel.  The gentleman never even put batteries so was surprised it didn't work.  Something to fiddle with... figure the engine alone is worth more than what I paid.

I picked up a Shinsei 1957 Chevy RC, 1/10 scale.  Was in a gentleman's garage for a while, was very dusty.  Fixed a bad 9v battery plug in the transmitter, cleaned and lubed it and it runs pretty well.  It has a speaker for exhaust sounds that change with motor speed.  You can check out the video at the link.

http://s98.photobucket.com/albums/l247/PEAJJ/Shinsei%201957%20Chevy/

Non-proportional steering speed so the gas is either on or off which makes for lots of burnouts on rug/smooth floors!  :burnout:

Was at a Target Greatland that was remodeling, not sure if that has anything to do with it but the Maisto Custom 1/24 cars and the Harly pickups with a little Harley motorcycle were all $3.24!!!!!

I saw the price tag under the box, said naw, that can't be right, price checked and it was right!  The Challenger, '69 Charger and '70 Nova have really nice metal flake paint.  I really like the paint on the Nova!

I cleared the shelf of customs.  They'll make nice b-day presents for the car guys I know or for the kids.  :)

The Mod Top is quite a stunning piece!  It is 1/18 scale and made by Highway 61/Performance Years Inc.  They have many different variations and have the car available in blue (B3 I think) too.

This is the second Mod Top car I have in my collection.  I also have a Dart in 1/18 by Highway 61 with a Mod Top.

Got this 1:24 Franklin Mint '71 hemi Challenger off ebay.  It's pretty sharp but not up the standards I have seen in other models of theirs.  The roof doesn't look right, and there are a bunch of small details incorrect like E60 tires instead of F60, and an AMC space saver spare tire.
'71's are rare to find compared to '70's though, so I am pleased to have it.

Post by: Super Blue 72 on July 31, 2011 - 08:16:18 PM
Nice score on those cars guys!  :cheers:

Ok, cover your eyes-non-Mopar stuff.....


Ok, so I like RC stuff, I liked the '68 Firebird XMODS car but I got a good deal on Ebay.  Weird, used stuff, a piece here and a piece there but together I got the Firebird kit that I wanted plus extra, Mustang body and body kit, Corvette bodies and body kit and a bunch of rims.  The rims on the firebird and redline tires are unique to the Firebird XMODS kit but I got a set plus extra rims and redline tires.  Also extra black wall tires and drag slicks.  :burnout:

Already put in a metal bearing kit, makes a big difference.  Mustang will get some body work, although it looks like a street racer right now, I kinda like it as is.  Plans are either for a Bullitt Mustang (body kit comes with the plain grill that is on the car.) or else a '65 Shelby Mustang (Body kit comes with a front fascia that mimics the Shelby Mustang front fascia.)  The Firebird body has already been stripped of the stickers and buffed up nice and clean to stock form.  :)

Oh yeah, I got everything for $15 and change.  :woohoo:

Hey, I just bought one of these about a month ago.  Wanted to post it here but I have been having camera issues.
Mine is a C-4166A.  According to my manual it came out after yours and the differences seem to be that yours needs an adaptor for some test(s).  Mine has a light where yours has C-4166 and there seem to be more instructions on the back.
I bought it quick and didn't have much time to research it.  Couldn't find much info and really have no idea what they sell for.  I paid $40 for mine and thought it was worth it just for the 'cool' factor in the shop.  I have no idea if that price is good, bad or right on.  What did you pay for yours?

Coool!!!  Let us know how it flies!  I always liked the RC helicopters but the amount of control on those can be very variable.  Last time I flew one was a few years ago but figure that the technology has improved since then.

While we're on the topic of RC stuff....Got more XMODS RC car stuff, craiglist special.  When new these cars ran like $40-$50 regular price.  For $40 I basically got 6 cars and a TON of hop up parts ranging from bearing kits, body kits, AWD kits and light kits. 

The set was advertised as for 5 cars with some parts for $40.  Turns out that there was a Plano fishing box that had 2 levels with a ton of parts.  After I explored a little, I noticed there were 5 cars but 6 transmitters.  I went, "Hmmm...this is weird."  I looked in the box on the bottom level, I found half a chassis.  In another box mixed in with some other body parts, I found another half of a chassis, found some differential parts in another little bin.  Turns out I made another car!  Looks to be another Scion, no body, but I found some scion specific parts.

So here is what I got for $40 as I got them:

1 Transformers Bumble Bee 2010 Camaro, stock with headlights/taillights.  Upgraded with underbody glow, 30k rpm motor and 4wd kit

1 Toyota Scion, BRAND NEW IN BOX!!!!!  Still has the plastic wrap on the transmitter and car.  Must have got it to replace the one he parted out.

1 Mitsubishi EVO MR, upgraded with 4wd /headlight/taillight/ METAL bearing/30k rpm motor/lowering/body kits. 

1 Hummer, upgraded with 4wd/30k rpm kit but missing driver front dogbone, will have to make one or something to get full 4wd.  No truck dogbone in spare parts but have dogbones/hubs for 4wd cars.

1 Nissan Titan, upgraded with under body glow/lowering kit/simulated 22" rim upgrade/headlights/taillights/4wd kits

1 chassis built from all the spare parts, had lowering kit.  Stock now but have parts to make 4wd.  Had a broken passenger rear hub but nothing Shoe Goo couldn't fix.  This one may be the "experimental" chassis I'll be using to use different bodies, etc.  For not it has the extra Corvette body that I got with the Firebird/Mustang deal. Currently I'm putting on a 427 Shelby Cobra 1/24 scale model body on it.

1 blue Ford F-150 body kit

2 Mitsubishi EVO MR body kits new in package.  (So essentially I have 3 body kits.  Weird, but can use the spoilers on other stuff.

1 big 2 layer parts box loaded with springs of different rates, lowering kits, driveshafts for 4wd, tires, rims, screws, etc. all organized.

I took out the lowering kits on all the cars and put in softer springs to help maintain some movement in the suspension and to hep keep the tires on the ground.  All the cars were dirty/had dog hair on them.  The most fun was rebuilding them and tuning them up.

Not bad for $40 for 6 cars and a bunch of spare parts and upgrades.  Figure just the bearing kit was $20 new.....   :-)

Working on a `70 road runner slot car.Since the only one made is for a t-jet chassis and is $40 and I wanted one to fit an A/FX chassis I had to make my own using a Tyco Superbird and an A/FX Daytona.I also had to scratch biuld the air grabber hood.A little more finish work and it`ll be ready for primer.

Sounds fun! I took my 3 boys to a range in Myrtle Beach a few years ago. The had a blast ( pardon the pun!)
They still talk about that. I'm more of a 45 ACP type guy myself. Blackpowder is fun too! (I have a few of each) As soon as they get rid of the "long gun registry" around here ( soon they say?) I'll join the gun club again and take the boys shooting.

Pretty nice 9mm!! I like the .44 or .45 prefer to only have to hit a potential target one time, (ball type round) Hollow points just do nasty things to the target! Did not care for the baretta's we carried in the military although they tear down quick and are pretty easy to maintain. Was looking at the desert eagle .45 at the last gun show not a bad price. Still want a custom kimber.

Thanks! Yes its real comfy/nice balance. And will get the job done thats for sure. But I was taught only to use FMJ for target shoots. And use HP for defense, cause you dont want one going thru your threat and hitting some one else. Kimber, very nice!

Here's my contribution,

SQUIRRELS TREMBLE AT THE SOUND OF MY NAME!!!!!  :smilielol:  (Sorry, I have gun envy...  :( )

Sorry, don't have much to add to the lethal toy section...it does have a laser scope...  :walkaway:


For non-lethal toys....scored big on craigslist yesterday.
 Got these 3 for $30... so basically $10 a car.  The convertible Mercedes SLK55 AMG ha a retractable hardtop roof, pretty cool.  The CLK has a front canopy that removes to show the engine and suspension, pretty cool...

Now check out the one in the middle. 

(http://images.craigslist.org/5Y45Z15X13k13m23p7b9t56150dda3676161d.jpg)

He's something interesting.  It's a "retired" Exoto 1964 Daytona Cobra from 1997 of the chassis #CSX2299 that won the GTIII class at the 1964 24 hours of LeMans driven by Dan Gurney/Bob Bondurant and took the World Manufacturers Cup from Ferrari in 1965 driven by Dan Gurney.  Limited production run, ended in October of 1998, and all cars serialized.

The Exoto site has it listed for $998.95! http://www.exoto.com/s/1/ProductDetails.aspx?Language=en&CategoryId=158&ProductId=1260

Ebay has 3, 2 "Buy It Now"s for $355 and $800 and an auction starting at $500! I got it bascally for $10!  :bigsmile:  :woohoo:

Here's a closer pic I snagged off the internet:

 Yeah, that was a concern that is why I do not leave the 5.56 out for fear of the LAPR going through the intruder, the wall, the neighbors wall. I keep shotgun ready first round 3 inch turkey nitro slug next rounds Buckshot even If the nughead has armor I will knock him on his ass thenm finish off the fleshy parts with the buckshot. I just hope it never happens I do not want to clean Brains off of the walls floor and ceiling after they have dried petrofied waiting for the cops to show up!!

Yep, it's an Exoto, serialized chassis.  If you see the Exoto link it's the exact same car.  I have a cheaper Toy R Us special squirreled away in the basement somewhere and I know the quality is no where as nice as this one.

She could not stop the truck all the way with brakes, shifted to nuetral ,( which jumped the rpm's up all the way) and switched the key off. Found the walnut a few minutes later.

RLC is the Redline Club going back to the original Hotwheels with redline tires , it is about $50 / year to join . This allows you the privaledge of buying on the first day , normally there have not been enough that I was interested in & there is almost always left overs the next day so I have never joined  the RLC. I will be on a plane @ 9:00 am wed of course when one of the only offerings I actually want is available .
 If you can get two wed morning I will pay you back Brad ! :2thumbs:

Cool cars, Rare T/A!  :thumbsup:  I have the purple version of the '70 Charger.  Very cool car!



Just got this body only of Ebay for $9.50.  Been looking for the body only of the 1/10 scale Dukes of Hazzard General Lee after seeing this video off Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wwyz7k9qlec  Well made video, I like the jump sequences.  It's about 18.5 inches long, front marker lights and taillights can light up.

Going to use this body on a hobby grade RC car.  1/10 chassis is a bit wide and a tiny bit short on the wheel base.  Will be using an old beat up 1/12 scale Kyosho Mini Cooper Super Alta chassis with Minilite wheels.  Chassis will need to be stretched about 2-3 inches to make it work.  The 1/12 scale wheels look more to scale than the 1/10 scale wheels/tires which make it look sorta DONK.

These cars were on clearance at Walmart like 6-7 years ago, I think for like $40-$50 dollars.

Last 2 I saw on Ebay in the box went for $140 and $157!  :faint:

it almost looks like it has metal flake but it doesn't. not sure the exact age but from comparing it to my other Kramers, i'm thinking '88-'90.
the SN is a bit high and with it being MIJ, i don't think they started new numbers every year.

Just got this locally off craigslist.  This set is the exact same set I had when I was a kid.  It was the only "big LEGO set" I had.  My dad was a fireman so maybe that's why he got this one for me. 

I was poking around CL for car stuff when a LEGO ad came up, opened it and saw this picture!  I was like, "No way, that's the exact set I had when I was little!"  Got it with a LEGO helicopter and a bunch of spare parts for $15.  He even still had the instructions!  It was the seller's when he was a kid, made in 1977.  Not bad to share a bit of my child hood with my kids.

Here are a few I have.  I'm working on a model train layout, and have plans for a diner with a cruise night or car show modeled.  So I've been collecting a few for that.

The silver red line hotwheel is the King Kuda from 1969, when I was a kid.  I find it much easier to locate Cuda's than Challengers.  I appreciated the shot of the Gibbs Dodge Challenger.  I went right out and ordered on.

I have the metal replica of Darth Vaders Lightsaber. A few halloween's ago I dressed up completly as vader and stood outside. When the kids would start to walk up I light the saber one little girl would not come get Candy my wife had to take it to her. It makes all the noises to include the deep humm when it is lit and will make sound affects if it bumps into something like your slashin through it.

I never had a Lil express diecast/toy/car but I did have a 1/24 model of something similar called Pumping Iron, did it when I was a teen.  Same thing, different color.  Still have it in the basement.

I'm pretty sure I just saw a 72-74 challenger at our local Toys-R-us.  Don't think it was matchbox, but it was about that size.  I'll try to check it out again this weekend.  My daughter would love an excuse to go back to Toys-R-us.  It definitely was not Super Blue :)

I'm going to have to check out Toys R Us or something.  Target has zilch, always out of Hot Wheels.

Yeah, that would be cool if anyone sees a '72-'74 Challenger diecast, any scale.  :thumbsup:

Last yr walked into W-M an the peg board was covered with 1:64 1 BADD RIDE Cuda and Challenger's.
Scooped up 12 of them and at check out cashier said the items could not be sold because of recall.
I couldn't believe it there were at least 100 of them and I couldn't buy one. Called manager, said they
have a stop sell on them.  Went back week later the same thing and still on display, aaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhh.
Few on ebay, 1:64 I see there are 1:24 on ebay.

That Duster is cool but I now realize the one I was remembering way back when is different, it was 1/18 scale by Amaerican Muscle diecast.  Same color and wing though!  Thought it was the one you got!

Post by: ViperMan on April 29, 2012 - 01:36:22 AM
I just got this one today!  I dunno how limited it's going to be, but I can't even find it on the hotwheels website:

This is the 2013 SRT Viper which was actually leaked before the car itself.  It was handed out to members of the press at the New York Auto Show, and I just recently acquired it along with a press kit, thanks to eBay.  The detail is impressive, with the SRT badge on the side, the carbon-fiber (which simply appears black) on the rear fascia, the new "Stryker" logo on the front bumper, and impressive detail of the hood.

Hoping I can find another to open - there'll probably be a few at Carlisle I can snatch up!

Birthday present:

Jealous. That's really cool.

On an unrelated note:

Last year I picked up a 1/18th scale 71 Cuda 440 Lemon Twist with white billboards from a guy but it was missing the box so it ended up going in a mini diorama with a boxless Daytona I picked up for 15 bucks. My wife and I went to a show today and a different guy that I bought a 1/18th Chrysler Turbine from was there and he called me over. He had a Mopar for me that he thought was a 71 Cuda because that's what the box said, but it was really an orange 70 Challenger that I already have. My wife has become addicted to Flea-Bay, and she's been showing me some 'unrestored' stuff that was amazing and I thought the Challenger would be a good candidate.
Once I got home I got the car out of the box and found that the Hemi and trans were gone along with the exhaust and the shifter, but that's ok because it will make the 'unrestored/barn find' thing a little more authentic, I also noticed it had the wrong tires, but once again, not a big deal.
I checked the numbers on the box and it turns out that the box is for a Lemon Twist 71 Cuda with a 440 and white billboards so the car may be going back into the box now. For all I know it's the original box since PR is sort of a closed economy.

Birthday present:

Nice!  I have't seen one of those tracks in a long time.  Last time I saw the AAR set was a few years ago at Target only at Christmas time.

Do you know where this set was from?  :clueless:

my wife bought it off ebay from a toy store.
I guess people collect stuff like this, but like a kid I had to open the box and play with the cars!
Not collectable to me  :bigsmile:
but I think I will pick up one of the Swede Savage #42s to have a matching set

This is a Challenger that I picked up on the weekend. It started out all orange but missing the engine and exhaust and wrong tires. I decided to try a little modding on it and only used the original car, no parts pulled from other cars.

This is what it says on the box


Exclusive at Tom Kneer Dodge. The Bengal Charger is a special car built to honor our new Cincinnati Bengals. We've painted it tiger orange with Bengal stripes around the rear deck and a black vinyl roof on top. Special name plates mark the front fenders. It's a car you must see...and the price is special too, and it's goin to make you cry in 2012 when you see it's starting at $2588.
30 Chargers to choose from

I picked up that cuda about a year ago and have painted it up to match my 71 as close as I can, including recently painting the shaker bubble and the bumpers. I also picked up some torque thrust rims to match what I have on the real car, but they dont seem to be the correct size. Theyre too small.
Still havent swapped out the dash and steering wheel from another donor scale car. Then it will be real close.

Just scored a White Lightning slot car at the local hobby shop.
In case some of you don't know what a White Lightning is read this:

"White Lightning cars are variations-made in small quantities-of regular production models. For 1:64-scale cars, RC2 produces White Lightning versions for 1% to 2% of any production run. We randomly insert these cars into cases at the factory.

To give you an idea of how scarce these cars are, consider this: If RC2 produces 10,000 Pontiac GTO models for its Musclecars series, and makes 1% of those cars White Lightning versions, we only make 100 White Lightning versions of the GTO. That's 100 White Lightning models for the entire world."

I seem to be adicted to buying guitars though and that sucks. just so many cool ones to pick from. I am excited to get the Fender, I have played a friends and with that set neck and thin body its sweet. I love the humbuckers too and with coil tap I can make it sound single coil if I want to......the Sheraton fills my need for a hollowbody. it has Gibson 490R-490T pickups in it and it can really rock or do the blues thing all day.

Since the toys category is broadening a bit I'll add a few of mine. I'm a fan of WW2 military armor. These models are 1:16 scale. They are remote control and drive and the the turrets traverse and the guns raise and lower. They have sound and smoke generators in them. I have also scratch built and installed CO2 guns that fire either paintballs or 6mm airsoft glow tracer ammo.
First one is a Soviet SU-100 tank destroyer and the second is a German King Tiger. The monster of WW2.

           Those are pretty neat like the idea of airsoft glow tracer but I would probably have rigged a .17HMR to it. The Konigstiger is neat. I saw a vid on youtube of a few RC tigers pretty neat and you can practice on the yard squirrel.

Those are cool!  Very cool that they can fire!  Just curious, how many servos do you use on the one that fires?

In the basement, left by the previous owner's sone, when I bought the house he lefta  Tamiya tank, not sure what scale as I usually do cars, but it's about, wild guess, 16-18 inches long.  All I remember is that it's in parts and it has metal tank treads.  I'll have to dig it out and mess with it.

Can you get away with only 2 servoes just to make it run?  :clueless:  Thanks!

HA! A Tamiya barn find. Pull that kit out and PM me a picture or something. It may be worth some money depending on it's state.

The tanks can have basic directional control with 2 channels. The kit you have probably is set up for 2 channels. Basically you need a 5 channel setup for something that moves the turret, elevates the gun, and fires.

Just in case you were curious just how big these things were in real life here is my German Jagdpanther tank destroyer vs. a Challenger. Same scales.

Alright, gotta show these off.  I've always enjoyed collecting 1/18th scale cars.  My collection pales to many here I'm sure, but I just acquired a handful recently, and wanted to show them off.

Sorry for how big the pics are - I set my camera to the lowest setting!

First, picked up these for $12 each at Sam's Club - 2 models I've been wanting for a while...

(http://www.jeffreystephen.com/uploads/Models1.jpg)

And now my piece d'elegance!  The AUTOART 2006 Viper SRT10 GTS!

(http://www.jeffreystephen.com/uploads/Models2.jpg)

I've been wanting one of these for a while, but they go for $100 dollars!!  I got this one on Ebay for $70 and within an hour they had bumped the price to $98.  Must have realized their mistake!

(http://www.jeffreystephen.com/uploads/Models3.jpg)
(http://www.jeffreystephen.com/uploads/Models4.jpg)

Check out that detail - spark plug wires, carpeted floor, 2-tone dash with remarkable detail.  Side windows, even set belts with metal buckles.

And that started a brief addiction, so with my first paycheck from my part-time evening job, I bought this:

(http://www.jeffreystephen.com/uploads/Models5.jpg)

A Koenigsegg CCX, also from Auto Art, for $175...  Crazy, yes, I know, but it's the only way to get one - no one else has the license to produce the diecast.

Check it out though - the roof comes off and stores in the "bonnet," as does the real car, and the trunk and hood have stabilizer struts.  Plus, the dihedral synchro-helix doors work and look just as the real car does.  Very, very awesome.

(http://www.jeffreystephen.com/uploads/Models6.jpg)

And now to resume saving money...  :)

Thanks Brad!  I actually bought it on Ebay from my cell phone while sitting under the tent at Carlisle.  :)  There was one for sale at the big diecast vendor under the grand stands, but he wanted $100 for it.  They only made like, 2,000 or so of these.

I didn't realize how dusty it was until I looked at these photos...  lol.  It needs a wash-and-wax!

Nice score, Jeff!  :2thumbs:

Autoart makes pretty nice stuff but I can't afford that kind of quality.  :crying:  I try to stay under $20 or so for each diecast. 

I've found some nice stuff off craigslist, best one is an Exoto 1/18 #5 1964 Daytona Cobra driven by Dan Gurney. 

I paid $10 for it.  The Exoto site has 1 left in stock, selling for $1,298.95      :faint:

I wonder if her ex-husband misses it?  :roflsmiley:

If I could afford an Autoart, this one would be in my 1/18 scale garage...

Sweet! I have #15 and #56 of the daytona shelby coupes from exoto. Love the detail! I used to buy lots of diecasts. I have over 150 of the 1/18 and about the same of 1/24 over about a 20 year period of collecting . I totalled up the cost of them one day and it scared me! I thought man are you ever dumb, so I quit and put the money into parts for the 1:1 diecast!  :grinyes:  Mind you every now and then another sneeks in to the collection!

Wow!  You have 2 of the Daytonas?  Nice!  The lady said when her ex bought it years ago he may have bought it for $150 or so.

Yeah, getting diecast can be addicting and after a while your house turns into a toy store if you aren't careful.  I "try" to save some money/avoid buying diecaast by finding deals or limiting how much I spend on them, thus the $20 limit...

Oh yeah, was at Costco last night....  ::)  Had to get it as I saw a replica of John Milner's car at Universal Orlando a few weeks ago... $12.99!  :bigsmile:

 :iagree:  Yeah, gotta agree with you on the 1/64 scale stuff.  You can stash a whole bunch in a decent sized drawer.  There is nice selection too. 

The small size is convenient.  I just attached a '69 Shelby Mustang GT500 convertible in Grabber Blue to my car keys by the roll bar.

It is.  I just called the DMV last week.  Although they didn't seem to be fully aware of the regulations.  The lady I spoke to said that I didn't need to do anything else, just install it.  But someone I spoke to Friday indicated that you need to take your current registration and the YOM plate to the DMV and they fill out some duplicate registration form that makes it all legal.

I hope to do that this week. If I get any better info, I'll let you know.

How's the house closing progressing?

Hope to get to DMV some time this week.  Problem is they open at 8:00 and close at 4:30.  I work in Nashua from 7:00 to 5:00 or later.  I'll have to go in late one day, or leave early.

Simba's 3rd Birthday was yesterday. I had wanted to get him a nice hot wheels-scale garage or something like that, but the only one that I found that looked sturdy enough to survive him was (wait for it) $300, so that wasn't going to happen. So, I got him a bunch of little things, including some more cars, almost all Mopars, and what looked to be a very nice car hauler.

The car hauler was a bust, almost literally. Once we got the package open it became clear that this item was never meant to be a toy. It was, instead, meant to be displayed behind some glass somewhere. The bumper fell off almost immediately, the trailer wouldn't stay hitched, the sides were plastic, yadda yadda yadda.

Still, as you'll see below, the trailer carried a good message. Oh, whenever I give Simba a bunch of cars, he always favors the Challengers and Cudas. Told you he was smart  :bigsmile:

Yeah, the 4th car was a Mustang  :bigsmile: I couldn't find another cool Mopar for him. But between having a Challenger and a Superbird, and the Charger RT (which is really nice, BTW) I'm happy.

As for the car carrier...I'll keep a lookout for a better one. Better for play, that is. This one was fine for being a collector item, but no good whatsoever as a toy.

What it's worth on Ebay and how much it's worth to you are very different things.  Could be worth $40 or something on Ebay but priceless when you think of the memories it conjures.  :D

Is it more B5 or Petty blue?  :clueless:

Ok, here's my little car story.

When I was younger in my single digits, like 7-8 or so, I used to have this little white '65ish Matchbox Mustang.  It was cool since it had a little thumb switch on the drivers side door that actually steered the car.  Don't see many Matchbox cars like this.  Any hows, it disappeared over the years.  :(  I loved that little car.  Used to drive it around on the rug playing the record from the Beatles, "Baby you can drive my car."  It was all beat up, chipped and all but I loved that car.

Fast forward to about 1998 when I was visiting London, England and I was at the Picadilly Fair flea market.  What do I see, the exact little Mustang in a display case in mint shape with the original matchbox.  I thought it was too expensive ($17 back then) and walked away but ran back to get it figuring I would not see another in a while, especially in such nice shape.

Fast forward to about 2010.  I go to my brother's house.  Says to me he found a box with my old Legos.  Fish around and what do I see?  My old little Matchbox Mustang!!!!  :icon16:

 :smilielol:  :roflsmiley:

Thanks for the comments, guys.  :)  Yeah, the beat one had some hard times but due to the steering it was spared the "Dukes of Hazzard" style jumps as it didn't go straight on it's own. 

Like real old cars, "I'll fix it up one of these days..."  Or maybe I'll leav it in it's unrestored condition... :roflsmiley:

Very cool story, Phil.

When I was about the same age, Cap'n Crunch would occasionally run giveaways of Matchbox cars. You had to send in 6 boxtops to get one car, so needless to say, my father probably ended up paying $6 for that 50 cent car  :bigsmile:  I got every one I could. The first one I got was a white Mustang, but it didn't have that cool steering like yours.

Do you guys remember when in the early 70's they used to have Hot Wheels on boxes of Crest toothpaste?

I also remember Hot Wheels sold in little plastic baggies with a cardboard hanger, sometimes in twin packs.

My Mom gave almost all of my old Matchbox and Hot Wheel cars to my nephews, so they are long gone.  I do have one redline Hot Wheel, about a '69 T-Bird, it is about the same condition as your Mustang.  I think I also have an old Matchbox tractor from the late '60s, but all of the tires are missing.

I am sacrificing my Gibson Les Paul to be able to afford this puppy. I love having a Les Paul but I find that I revere it too much and so I dont get it out of its case much at all since it is so nice. I bet its been 6 months since I even played it. That is sad so maybe I can send it to off to a home where it will find the play time it deserves. Hellraiser is a very nice axe. I have a Yamaha AES 720 that I like a lot and a set neck tele that plays like butter.

Cool El CAmino.  Looks like something from Mad Max!  If only they would make little Mad Max Interceptor cars out of the Ford Falcon they have now!!!

Not sure if this is the right place to show it, but here is my latest purchase. A UTS-15 (Urban tactical shotgun - with 15 rounds  in two onboard upper tubes)
Not exactly a toy, but it sure is fun. And like a classic car, there is no end to the modding you can do. In fact with a breach choke, laser/light combo and a nice reticle sight, it will make a very nice addition to my modest collection, and with rifled magnum slugs, according to the manufacturer it can take down ANYTHING native to the north American continent! so Im ready for the zombie apocalypse  :roflsmiley:

This particular model is about $1200, but anywhere from $1500-2000 by the time you finish customizing it.
I know....$$$$, about 2-3 times more than you can find other decent tactical shotguns, but the cool factor got me. Its ugly, but its a bada$$ ugly. Maybe a little too high techish, but I already have some classic and antique shotguns. Those are a dime a dozen.
Shotguns are very versatile, and this one has the ability to load two different types of rounds for different purposes. 7 rounds in each magazine, plus one chambered. For instance you can load buckshot in one magazine, and birdshot or rifled slugs in the other, and just select which mag you want to fire from, or just load all 15 rounds with whatever and fire as fast as you can pump to unload all 15 rounds. If youre good you can fire 15 rounds in about 6 seconds!

And...with all the talk of tighter regulations, you cant go wrong in owning and maintaining a modest collection. I'm in it for the sport and the fun of ownership. Im sure we can all understand that, with our common attraction to not so politically correct 6 mpg cars! It would be a shame for responsible citizens to lose the right to own these types of weapons.

And PS, it looks big but its only 29 inches long and 7 pounds empty.

A couple of batteries later and I’m jamming  :cooldancing:

Here's a toy two-fer!  I was at Meijer recently and when there, I can't help myself, I always make a beeline to the toy section before heading to the food or car parts area where I intend to shop.  So I'm checking out the cars and see they had a couple M2 Machines 1:24 '71 Challengers!  One was orange with white stripes and the other was green.  The majority of Challenger models are '70's, and since I have a '71, I couldn't resist taking one home with me.  I picked the green one as green models are even more uncommon than '71 Challenger models!
The green is more of a later sherwood green than '71 F8, it has a '70 gullwing and trunklid, the seats are '70's.  I'll stop nitpicking, what do you want for $19.95?
I've been working at Navistar this year in a group that engineers option combos for medium duty trucks; Durastars, Workstars and Terrastars.  They have company rules in the office about what you can display on the top of the file cabinets in your cubicle (seriously), so no Mopars allowed in my cubicle.  I do have a couple heavy duty semis on display currently.  I thought it would be cooler to actually have a model of one of the trucks my group actually configures, so when I spotted this Jaba 1:24 Durastar roll-off, I thought that would be cool to have.  Plus, maybe I can put a 1:24 Challenger on it as the truck's "load", and that way display a Challenger model in my cubicle without getting in trouble with the "cubicle police!  :naughty:
One of my colleagues has a new Camaro and he's always making sarcastic Challenger put downs to me, so I've been running around to Walgreens the last few days seeing if I can find a Maisto 1:24 new Camaro model to display on the truck to rattle his chains, open the hood, put some cotton balls in there to simulate overheating!  So far no luck finding a Camaro in stock, they get $6.99 for those Maisto models at Walgreens, which is about as much as I want to spend for a gag.  After getting my laugh I figure I'd just smash the Camaro with a sledge hammer anyway!  :roflsmiley:

That's interesting, that is the same one I saw at the Meijer store when I bought my dark green '71 I talked about and posted a picture of posed on my new Durastar Roll off Wrecker die cast model.  But I don't recall the orange one at Meijers having that run with the Scat pack decal on the door, I wonder if M2 Machines has multiple variations?

The Meijers still had the orange '71 on the shelf I saw when I bought my green one, as of a couple days ago.  I don't think it had the run with the scat pack decals though like Ken's.  Let me know if you're interested, I go to that store often and could get it for you.  I also saw an another orange one at a Walmart when I was shopping recently, though I didn't look at closely to see if it had the decal.

I'll look at it closer next time I'm there and see if it has the Scat Pack logo.  I can tell you my green one doesn't, but I'll let you know what I find!
They were $19.99 at Meijers, probably the same price at Wally World.

If you do a search I remember there was a cup holder that slides into the ashtray guides if I am not mistaken.  Not sure if it was a one off someone made of if a company sold it.

All the figures are like new in package.  The seller took real good care of his stuff.  Has TONS of figures, new in package,  his house was like a toy warehouse!  :faint:

Pops Racer is cool as he has a rollaway toolbox with opening drawers and tools and impact gun.

old tool from Germany... hatchet/hammer/nail puller/ screwdriver...

Wow, an old version of a Leathman tool!

Wonder how old it is?  They probably used that one tool to build a house back then...

Here's another pic off the internet.

These are all off a 73 Challenger. Also wondering why the new flat hood that I have now has the holes for the DODGE letters and the flat hood that I have on the car does not?

Hey chongo, nice score.  They look decent.

Don't know if the fender is fixable, I'm not a body guy.  Sorry.  Would imagine it is fixable with some work.

As far as the letters go, all years of the Challenger EXCEPT 1971 have the D-O-D-G-E letters on the hood.  Is your car a '71?  :clueless:

What is your scheduled build date of your car?  If it's an early '72, it could have '71 parts on it.  My '72 Challenger has a '71 Rallye gauge cluster from the factory, possible other stuff too like the trunk lid.  My SBD is 8/17/71.  August was the first month of the '72 model year so if you have an SBD in  August it could be a '71 hood if it's original to the car.

You very well could have a '72 model that was made in July 1971.  I only am aware of 1 other car like that built in July 1971 that was a '72 model year.

I cant remember but I had some hot wheels I think in the mid-late 60s, and of course the track and then the little motors that would push them along.
I always thought they were an american response to matchbox cars, which were british IIRC. The hotwheels were a LOT more functional.

Just got the Camelbak today. When I go outdoor shooting down here it gets pretty warm and this way I don't need to pack 4 bottles of water in the vest.

Recently completed my 1/18 diecast of my car. Originally a Hemi replica FE5 with red interior, red shaker that I converted to be a 1:1 of my car. Changed motors to 440-6 w/ blk shaker, removed 'HEMI' from hockey stripe and added in '440', removed rear wing, replaced red interior with blk interior, custom license plate, and added LED lights.

Wow those camelbaks are getting elaborate. A friend of mine had one of those many years ago for mountain biking and it was nothing more than a bag of water that he slung over his back.
That 1:18 red cuda is really cool. Great job on that.  :clapping:

The camelbak is only a back pack. I attached it to my tactical vest but can take it off if I want or need to. I have a little fanny pack camelbak too but it's pink. I use it around the garage and for doing touristy stuff since it has room for my 40.

My wife and I owned an antique shop for quite a few years so we each collect a few things. I collect old tools, advertising items and old car related stuff. Recently we were up on the Eastern Shore of Virginia (mostly farm land) and hit a few little antique shops and I found this old can of engine additive "Carbon-X-it" It is in pristine condition and is still full of the original contents. Looks to be from the early teens from the graphics. I love the old car on the front. The back photo isn't too clear, but a great find!!  :2thumbs:

I guess someone could have painted the top black. I figured the black was unique to the aar unless other cudas got a blacked out hood???

I went to wally world and got the Challenger shirt but forgot what the other shirt looked like!  :banghead:  Thought it was the one with an old Chevy pick up truck!

Thanks for the heads up on the Challenger T/A shirt at Wally World!!  :cheers:
I have a red and black T/A so I had to have one, went to my local Wally World this morning, lots of t shirts but only a few car ones and they were all Chevy and Fords.  :walkaway: They had Puralator oil filters on sale, but didn't even have any 300001's that our vintage V8's use.  :swear:
But at lunchtime I hopped in my '09 Challenger and went to another store not too far from me, and they had the Challenger ones there! I bought one XL and one L at 5.44 each, they even had my oil filter in stock.  :cooldancing:
Now if I can ever get the restoration finished on my T/A I'll be all set with my fashion when I drive it.

I remember years ago Walmart had those massive 1/6 scale 19.2volt RC cars.  I should have grabbed one when they were on clearance.  Probably better off though, too much junk in the basement anyhows...

Got this for $100 off craigslist.  It's a 2010 Baja Warrior mini bike. 

Guy sold it to me cheap as it had no compression after he replaced an intake valve that snapped and the throttle was all messed up due to a removed governor set up and Mickey Moused throttle cable, meaning unsafe. 

Adjusted the valve and it has compression and made some throttle and choke levers and it starts up using a rope as the recoil starter is missing.  This is my anti theft device!  Starts and idles well.  Haven't driven it yet as I have the chain off to rev the engine to figure out the light circuit to see how many lights it can support.

Ok, not quite a toy but sorta.  I have cars with aluminum alloy rims and they tend to oxidize over the years, inside and out. Well, when they oxidize around the bead they make a slow leak.  I had a tire place try to fix it but all they do is break the bead and put some rubber sealant on it and it leaks again.

I used to fix this when I was a mechanic by removing the tire then sanding the rim with a whizzer tool.  Have to sand the bead area on the tire as flat as possible or else it'll leak again.

Was on sale for $45 than I had a 20% off coupon so got it for like $36 plus tax.  Works on as small as an 8" rim so I can theoretically use it on my mini bike rims if I have to change the tires one day.

This will help as the set of snow tires on separate rims that leak and I have to fill the tires every 2-3 days.  :faint:

 :iagree:  Yup.  The deal is the previous owner removed the governor controls and the throttle cable goes right to the throttle butterfly on the carb.  I just have to make sure I don't over rev it, which may have been the case as to why the guy had to replace the intake valve.  Said it snapped when he was passing cars doing supposedly as he claims 65mph.  :screwy:  :screwy:  :screwy:  These are built to do like 24mph tops but when you take off the governor bad things happen, like snapped intake valves maybe.  I doubt he was doing 65mph, although he was passing cars on the highway he was on so he claims....  :dunno:

If you are curious about what I'm doing with it I have a "resto" thread about how I'm bringing it back form the dead here:

This is my aerobatic plane with my Grandson's pedal powered model that I gave to him on Christmas.  He loved it. :bananasmi
It has a 4 foot wing span, tail wheel steering, and 1 kid power.
Big brother has 18 foot wing span and 330 (hemi) horsepower.
I build both of these from drawings.  One took 4 years the other 4 months. ;D

Wow again. Small world!
I knew I recognized the landscape. I am real good at that.
 I havent flown in 25 years, but spent much of my first 25-30 years in the aviation business one way or the other, and grew up around several of my Dads toys, including a P-61, an AT-6 and his favorite F-6F Hellcat. Back in the day you could pick up war surplus for pennies on the dollar.
One day I will take you up on your offer.

OK........... got a little late Christmas gift today.............There are only about 25 of these vehicles and I got one............My son of course is a city policeman and I posted a pic of his new Charger a little while ago.  Blue Lights and all.   My gift is  a Charger with the correct city decals, etc.  The tag says 1971.........that is the year my wife and I got married.  The little car# 210 is his call number. That is also on the car.  He got one too and his tag is 1994, the year he started in police work.  I hope the pics turn out ok................I am impressed........

Only photo's of the real cars so far, but both of these are to be produced in 1:18 scale this summer. To be made by AutoWorld with flip up bodies, very detailed motors, and about 11" long. Should be cool...

1/24 scale, different frequencies so they can race.  I think the Cobra will when over the Mustang, it has wider tires!

That wasn't the pump I REALLY want but it was cheap enough.
What I really want is a Sunoco blender pump.
Like this one.
I liked the Gasboy because of the Texaco face and coloring.
Should be fun redoing it.
I need to figure out how to get the lights working on the jukebox for display.

I have been following them for a while and around a 800.00 to 1200.00 is what I have found so far.
I saved that picture from a add I think.
The nicest one I found was 3500.00 fully restored and it was perfect.
But too much for me to pull the trigger.

This isn't Mopar related but I have always been interested in taking better photos. Just never had the right equipment until now. For Christmas Nancy got me this new Sony DSLR and battery grip. Two weeks I came across this lens and bought it so I can go wild life shooting. I got it all put together so now I'm just waiting for summer. The last two photos in the group are ones I got with my old camera which is also a DSLR but an entry level one.

there are a lot of great toys here.  I especially like the crawler-loader with a 4-in-1 bucket.  how fun. nice firearms as well.

I picked this up recently.  Colt single action army, sn 5xxx , 45 LC , manufactured feb 1874 . although no exact record of this particular firearm, others within 20-50 of this serial number are documented to be issued to the 7th cavalry. from what I could find at this time, I think this gun was likely with company D of the 7th cavalry, under command of capt Thomas Weir, and present at the battle of little bighorn.

actually, what a sad event.

Got home tonight and was presented with this from my 19 year old daughter. She found it at an antique mall/flea market today. Said they had 5 booths full of mainly larger die cast cars. Lots of Mopars she said. I will get by there this week and have a look and take some pics in case anyone is interested in anything in particular.
Box is beat up and there is a scratch on the hood but it may clean up. Works great. Inner headlights come on when you go forward and taillights come on in reverse. The burn out feature uses 2 servo motor lifts that bring rear tires just off ground so they spin freely, there is a reservoir for a special oil of some kind that I assume heats and makes smoke. I do not have any oil to test it yet. Gotta look into it. Pretty awesome find from an awesome kid. I love the fact they call it a 67 cuda, even she knew it wasn't a 67.

I bought one of these at Walmart when they were on the shelves about 2007 or so.  The burnout smoke worked a little for a while, then stopped working at all.  Great looking and sounding car, though.

I'm guessing the smoke oil is the same as used in model trains.

Nice stuff guys!  :2thumbs:  Yeah, I know about the diecast, Brad...  :banghead:  I have to stop going on Craigslist.....  :faint:


Ok, so I went on craigslist.....  :D

$10 each, Ferrari 250 California and Shelby Daytona Cobra Switzerland Team

these are my weakness too, I have 125 of them and I can't stop. Even at Carlisle I avoid a certain vender because I know even a walk by will end up in me buying 3 or 4.

Nice!  This guy had the whole set but I just bought the one I liked best. It got damaged in shipping but I managed to get it somewhat back together .

Yes...in Rockingham.  That was at one of the Polar Bear races a couple of years ago.  Now the track has lost the Nascar truck race again.   It is a nice track, just needs some loving and some real money backing.

It even had an LED light when you hit the trigger, pretty cool.

Ya Nascar sure has lost the interest of lots of fans. Me being one of them. Bring back "STOCK"car racing and I'm in! This current crap and all the added drama (eg. Danica etc...) just turns me off. I'll stick to supporting my local short track thanks!  :grinyes:

I also got these two T/A's last fall at walmart and have not seen them anywhere since. Do any of you folks know anything about them? Do any of you guy have them. They say limited to 5K pieces. I'm just curious if they are scarce or just run of the mill like most others.

I have a lot of respect for Don Carlton , to bad he was killed so early in life , he was like a machine he was so consistant 
 I bought this diecast a few months back http://www.ebay.com/itm/Mopar-Missile-1972-Pro-Stock-Duster-Brand-New-1-24-Scale-Diecast-Don-Carlton-/310686792857?pt=Diecast_Vehicles&hash=item4856603c99 (http://www.ebay.com/itm/Mopar-Missile-1972-Pro-Stock-Duster-Brand-New-1-24-Scale-Diecast-Don-Carlton-/310686792857?pt=Diecast_Vehicles&hash=item4856603c99) I have seen this one listed as low as $25 which is what I paid for it & it may be the same casting as the Vanke one , just different paint , obviously the Carlton one is a much simpler paint job !
 I have not seen or looked for the M2 T/A in 1/24 th scale
These  are cool too http://www.ebay.com/itm/130842651369?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649 (http://www.ebay.com/itm/130842651369?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649) or this truck is cool http://www.ebay.com/itm/CASTLINE-M2-MACHINES-AUTO-DREAMS-1957-DODGE-COE-75th-ANNIVERSARY-VHTF-/221456821958?pt=Diecast_Vehicles&hash=item338fdaeec6 (http://www.ebay.com/itm/CASTLINE-M2-MACHINES-AUTO-DREAMS-1957-DODGE-COE-75th-ANNIVERSARY-VHTF-/221456821958?pt=Diecast_Vehicles&hash=item338fdaeec6)
 I would love to find a Dodge flat fender military pick up , I almost bought one a few years back , I figured using the body on a 89-92 Cummins chassis would be awesome just no cash to build it , something like this http://www.ebay.com/itm/Dodge-Power-Wagon-M37-Dodge-M37-/111370074818?forcerrptr=true&hash=item19ee2c7ac2&item=111370074818&pt=US_Cars_Trucks (http://www.ebay.com/itm/Dodge-Power-Wagon-M37-Dodge-M37-/111370074818?forcerrptr=true&hash=item19ee2c7ac2&item=111370074818&pt=US_Cars_Trucks) The one I looked at buying had a later round cab style used into the 60s

Late to the party as usual. I have a lot of older Hot Wheels and JL's, but needed something to reflect the new car. Headed to Ebay and bought every purple Challenger I could find. The first group all came in last week, and the lone HW's car came in today.

You guys haven't found anything on craigslist or got anything for Christmas?   :clueless:  Ok, got this yesterday.

Warning: Long story and lots of Ford stuff, no Mopars, sorry!

I saw an ad on cl for some model cars.  Seller had like 6-8 in the pic.  Can't remember how many but I noticed one was a metal Shelby cobra, basically the kit version of the 1/24 scale Maisto cobras you could buy like in the 90s. Not real good detail but cool.  Saw a Bullitt "you assemble" kit that came with a prepainted body.  1967 and 1969 Shelby mustang kits.  I asked about those four and the seller said they are available and the ad stated they were $5 each.  They looked new and the price of a new kit is like $15-$25 now so I thought might be a good idea.   This was Saturday.  In the ad were a couple convertible 1965 mustangs and a boss 302.  Maybe the 1966 concept mustang as well.

Sunday I get an email from her and she said some one came buy and bought the other 22 models but she saved the four I asked about.  I was like what?  :clueless:  There were 26 total?   The ad had like 6-8 model kits????  I thought, "oh well.   Maybe he saved me from spending too much money by buying all the other kits.

Then came yesterday when I went to go get the four she saved for me.   Was real nice she saved those for me.   Turns out it was her ex husbands stash that he left behind.   Opened the door to her porch and saw diecast cars!!! She said they were things she had on cl too and was putting out there for a yard sale and I was welcome to look at them.  She was super nice. There were a lot more cars but I had to be careful not to spend too much $$$. 

Any how, got all the stuff in the pics below.  I think the Shelby Signature Series Mustang GT-350H alone goes for like at least $40.   Got the 1/18 for $10 each.  She dropped the price for me as she initially wanted $15 each for them.  The metal tin is some sort of collectible Craftsman plied set with three small pliers in it.  Perfect for small jobs or model building for $3.   The real cool find is the 1/24 scale 427 Cobra in the front.   The detail is real nice.   She also had a couple of air brush kits and paint she sold to me cheap.   I've been getting good stuff from women that are divorced or hubby passed away.   Just down the road from this lady I got a bunch of nice diecast from another lady last year.

Speaking of toys, here is my collection. The cases are made from storm doors picked up at a local Habitat for Humanity.

Great idea on the storm doors.  :2thumbs: I have so many diecasts that I've run out of room to store them.

Post by: 70chall440 on April 08, 2015 - 05:05:03 PM
exactly my problem that drove the development. Easy to do;

Get a storm door (local Habitat for Humanity or recycling center)
build a frame so that the door sits flush (I used 2x6)
build some shelves length wise (I used 1 x 6)
run a threaded rod down the middle to eliminate sag (or you could cover the back) I figured this out the hard way...  I have nuts with washers under each shelf so I could "level" each one.
go to home depot and get a piano hinge, screw one side to the frame and the other to the door (on the top end)
make some hanging points - can be above or inside or even on the sides depending on where you are putting it
hang it up
fill it up with your toys

I use a spare rod or broom handle to prop it open when I have it open. On the second one I installed a butterfly latch (off of an only container) on the bottom to keep the door closed. Since the door is hanging down it remains closed generally but the second case I made is on a wall with a walk in door and I was concerned that when closing that door the door on the toy case would open enough to allow some of the small cars to fall out.

unfortunately I had to sell 90%of my die cast stuff during the downturn @ 7yrs ago. very sad day, had a LOT of old redline hotwheels and a couple old hotwheels track sets still in the box. the only things I kept were a couple oddities that few folks appreciate and some new hotwheels stuff that no one wanted. these are a few that were gifted to me recently (they doubled my collection!!  :rofl: )

 They built what was later called the wire car , it used tensioned cable instead of frame rail in some areas super light & stiff , This team was amazingly innovative & Don was super consistant to bad he was killed way to young

Hi guys, I've been looking around for truck parts and I found this website that offers a lot of aftermarket oil pans (https://akmicorp.com/oil-pans/) for heavy-duty trucks, I hope this will help anyone.
