An Outstanding haul

I went to a place on the other side of town today, that I haven't been to for quite awhile... I posted some pics of this place called "Robbies Hobbies" a year or so ago... The owner buys whole collections and sells them piece by piece very, very cheap... I have another box to pick up tomorrow after pay day, but here's what I brought home today for less than 20 bucks !!!

This awesome JL Bass Boat Team... $2.00



HW Rockin Rods 57 Chevy... $2.00


JL Elviras 58 T-Bird... $2.00


JL Hot Rods T-Bucket... $2.00


MB Golf Cart... $1.00


1/24th scale diecast Fast and the Furious Charger... $4.99 (had to reglue the scoop, blower, and headers) !!!


1/24th New Style diecast T-Bird... $2.99


With tax and all, a little over $18.00... Like I said, I will be back tomorrow !!!

I am going back over there tomorrow afternoon James... He had just bought a huge collection off of someone... There is suppose to be over 2,000 JLs, HWs, GLs, MBs, and more... Thing is, I kinda had an attitude towards this guy because he paid $500.00 for the whole collection... On one hand he can pass the good deals on, but the other hand that bothers me is, He really took advantage of a fellow collector like us, and it makes me feel I'm doing the same thing to the collector by buying the cars so cheap !!! Confusing !!!

If there is anymore, I will definetly let ya know !!!

Points to you for that attitude. I'm glad some people still think this way and it's not all about "first come, first serve" or "you snooze, you lose". That's what makes HT a great place.

I agree with both of you. But, at the same point in time that is capitalism I guess. Still, Steve you get many kudos for taking a stand brother!!!!!
