Amazing stuff -- Whenever I watch a lot on feePay it always goes for way stupid money. The slot gods rarely smile on me when it comes to lot purchases...

Recent Craigslist find...

This was one of the photos from the Craigslist ad:



Not shown is a big box of Tyco and Lifelike track and about 5 original jars of Aurora Red Oil.

This is the good stuff once I got it home:



None of those bodies have chassis under them. The three tan bodies are near perfect, while the white Maserati has cut wheelwells and the turquoise Jag has cut wheelwells and is missing the windows and rear bumper. The TJ chassis runs but needs a driven gear. The set box was empty and had the corners blown out, but I taped it up and hung it on the wall in the dungeon. There were also a couple of trashed 440 chassis and some other odds and ends included.

The ad made it seem like a screamin' deal for 50 bucks, but once I got there and saw there were no chassis under all those bodies, it took some of the luster off. Still pretty happy with what I got... plus there was an original Aurora GTO rear bumper in the pit box, which I needed to complete a brown GTO, so that was a bonus.

Jeepmon, nice finds. I recently got both of those Chapparals at a car show and one of those rubber-band Camaro sets off a Craigslist deal. And that blue/white Mustang is sharp.

rdm, LOVE the green Mustang and the red XL Camaro...
