......I got married to an awesome woman!! She not only understands my diecast collecting but she feeds the habit!!!

I get home from work today, walk into the living room and see this. And here happy anniversary. :hat: :eek::woohoo:



She went to 4 different Walmarts repeatedly over two weeks just to find one of these still sealed. Just for me! If that ain't love!

Here's the bounty. No supers but I couldn't of asked for more.



Even the cat got in on the fun





:thumbsup:

Thanks fro the kudos and the anniv. wishes all.

You should hear what she went through to get it. Long story short. 4 Walmarts said no we don't sell sealed cases. 1 Walmart she was told that don't have sealed cases because they have to open each one to make sure they got everything (aka we pull all the good stuff when it comes in). All told her she had to order it online at wally.com, of which you can not do. She had some other dealings with corporate Wally. And, finally returning to one Walmart found a manager and asked for a sealed case. He said "we don't sell them by the case" she replied "why not it's a guaranteed sale of 72 cars" and he came back with "You're right. I don't know why not". Which at that time he went out back and brought back what you saw in the pic. Gave it to her and she went happily on her way. And, yes that is the short story. ;)
