    Found at Walmart and "5 Flying Monkeys" antique mall, Cottage Grove, OR

    Honda Accord tuner car is a nice flashback to the tuner craze of my teenage years and is a nice "buddy" for my HW Premium Fast & Furious cars, Mustang is an ugly stock color on a beautiful casting, Volvo will be repainted/wheelswapped when weather cooperates, Aussie Falcon will get wheelswap, Mazda2 will be a diorama car, and HW 100% Hummer H1 has been detailed out.

    The book is an exceptional scale modeling resource.

    That book does look like it'd be interesting, is that new, or from the antique mall?

        Thanks for sharing this, especially the Walmart finds. I haven't been in a while because it has generally been pegwarmers for months now, even during the Christmas shopping season.

            Thanks! I'm waiting to find me a MBX '41 Cadillac. I have the perfect set of wheels waiting for it.

              Neat book - years ago there used to be a number of great model making and diecast type books available - now most are found at antique malls or used book stores.

                I look for them in those places & thrift stores.


                Today I found an assortment of oddballs, most notably that Siku V-series Porsche 911S Targa autobahn police car.

                        My finds from 1/5/2020. The kiddie kustom Ertl Pontiac Bonneville will be kept as is, the Shoebox/'50 Ford will be customized someday, the Mini and Ford Ranger mini Stomper were too cool not to get, the fire truck is going to be recommissioned for my diorama setting, the forklift modified, and the grungy Hot Wheels Surf Patrol Action Pack is mainly of value due to the 1 beefcake/2 cheesecake minifigures for mock 90s-style car magazine shoots, and the books are all great. "Christine" was a replacement for a lost copy, the Super Service Station magazine is an industry magazine for the gas station business, is full of cool ads, and predates the 1973 oil crisis by a matter of months, and the used car salesman book was too cool not to get. @ Eugene, Oregon

                            The Road Champs St. Louis tele squirt fire truck appears to be in excellent shape. Thinking at one time I had a copy of that Model Railroading Handbook.

                              Thanks! The STL telesquirt is as close as it gets to being a new 30-year-old toy without resorting to hunting down 90s-era dead retail stock.
