Your sons gonna love smashing those up... Shocked Laughing

I remember Matt...when he was 2 or so...used to line up every car / truck / bus he had...bumper to bumper across the room.

We used to carry him in, then about 3 bags of vehicles each weighing as much as he did.

Poor kid.... Rolling Eyes


He just better not want multiple vehicles now that hes grown up.........oh wait.......nevermind Wink

LOL I thought the same thing but wouldn't say it. My did blew his up when he was 15 so I never had the chance to stomp on them.

And Brian, you need some more town truck orange vehicles with salt splash and snow plows on them!

Lol. I told Ben if he ever buys a project car, that I will beat him hahaha.

As for those trucks, he can't reach them yet... Tho he has broken a few of my wife's choppers, $$$ 57 bel airs, and 40's/50's pickup trucks. Oh, and a custom Chevy ext cab dually revel model, indys dad gave me, that I did up as a highway dept truck as well.

Matt, I dont have plans to continue the truck thing. Too much money, time, and nerves. Sounds familiar huh? Weathering them is a PITA. I do have a huge box of parts. I could make you one the way you described above.

You seriously should sell them as a side thing. But don't get too attached to each one, that'd be the killer.

Barn find cars are the best to make! Just hit them with clear/glue and sprink dust from the basement floor all over them! Laughing

Eh. Here is the rest of my die cast. Excluding whatever is in boxes here, and at my folks house in Alabama. Not all b bodies, but what the hell. Post em if you got em!







And, its not a die cast, but since its displayed here. My Dan Aykroyd autographed Blues Brothers poster. I'm a BIG fan of the music and the movies. My friend bought it for me about 3 years ago. One night while I was on the 4-midnight shift, Dan was at Yankee Spirits in S. Attleboro promoting his Crystal Skull Vodka. I was assigned to the other side of the city. My buddy called me up and asked if I wanted it signed. I told him to go to my house and my wife will meet you at the door with it. He stood in line for 2 hours to get it signed and met up with me in the cruiser to hand it off safe and sound. What a great guy! A couple patrolman were lucky and got the in-store detail that night and had a bunch of facebook pictures with Dan. Maybe next time. (cool story bruh)


Oh, and Matt. You posted while I was posting. But I am pretty attached. I have sold a few and made several hundred dollars so far. I do have a book on how to weather model cars. I have evrything to do it, but its more a winter time thing when I cant go outside to work on the car.

I only ever built one. It was a 66 Charger that was painted some sort of Lime green but the can was efffd up so the paint came out crappy. I started on a 69 Super Bee but never finished it. It's still in my dad's basement probably.


Glad I didn't become a Mopar guy too! That would be way too expensive!

Here's what Ive collected since last. Sort of. There's a couple 1/64 playart police Impalas like the ones posted previously as well as a mint-ish red fire chief one. Packed up in a box tho.

Here's the brand new Johnny Lightning (TOMY) releases. Beat the heat category. Replicas of real police race cars. The top right one is a White lightning I scored for a good price. I have more of these than whats pictured. I guess I was excited and got some pre sale ones.


Here is an overview. You've got the 4 JL beat the heat cars Then up top, left I found a large Jim Beam box Caprice state police decanter. Made for attendees of the 1992 convention from what I could dig up. There's a few color variations. The top comes off and there's a cap in the back seat you remove to access the booze. To the right is a UT 1/18 Caprice and there's also a 1/24 New York state police Caprice.


And here's my latest addiction. "Paper archives". There's a bunch of 1991/92 9C1 articles, actual press photos, dealer brochures, that include but not limited to '95 1A2, '93 9C6, '91/'92 9C1, 1A2, and 9C6 brochures. I have a 1991-3 parts manual and some Impala SS brochures too. Im currently searching for more.

Forgot about this thread. Came up in a google search. Here's a panorama shot of about 99% of my B body collection and my related literature.

Thanks Eric. I add to it throughout the year when I can. This is 4-5 years of searching and buying. I recently picked up that '95 9C6 brochure, not pictured. I'm sure the $ can be spent elsewhere, but it wouldn't be an obscure addiction if I did!
