  • Not Forgotten

    As long as I have been interested in and collecting diecast, I have seen many changes in the hobby. I've seen prices sore to almost unaffordable highs, I've seen popularity rise and fall, quality issues appear, as well as allot more. All across the net in many Face~Book groups, collectors are mainly posting new stuff all the time or customs they've done. At one time I was a member of 11 diecast discussion sites such as this one. All have disappeared except the Garage here. I am very, very glad and honored to still be a member of this site as well as Swifty's also. I have learned and learned so much from all the knowledgeable friends and collectors here. Every once in awhile I like pulling some of the older stuff down and playing as much as I admire the old castings. Here's a few of the older, seemed to be "FORGOTTEN" AWs I had down playing with today...

    The AW "Deluxe" series was some of my favorite cars from them at the beginning. I really expected to see more of these.

    Did I see they have reintroduced a few of these old castings as JLs now? I thought I saw someone post something about that in the past few months.
    The image file limits have been reset. Upper limits now are 100,000 when we have some images that exceed 5,000,000. I've set the pixels for no more than 1000 across the longest side, so if you resize to that all should be well. (The limits are larger than what I typically use, and my images turn out just fine, so I know it shouldn't be a problem)

    Thank you for your understanding.

      Some of the Camaros and Vettes have been released as JLs. I think there are Target exclusive 2 packs featuring these deluxe models as well with metal bases now.

        I know the 66 El Camino casting is now a Johnny. I have also heard of a few others......
