I guess I have been neglecting the diecast world lately.

1. Will you purchase any special diecast with your tax refund?

2. How silly does Boston look after this fiasco?



3. Any idea who sells Johnny Lightning cars now? I didn't see any new ones in my travels today.

4. You think these are weird looking?

Nope, wood to build new entertainment center.

I don't really pay it any mind, someone else will do something sillier.
3. Any idea who sells Johnny Lightning cars now? I didn't see any new ones in my travels today.
Macs, Milezones, WM, a couple local shops

I am working on a deal for that very purpose. Now all I have to do is actually GET a tax refund...

2. How silly does Boston look after this fiasco?



A classic case of overreacting that most Americans are in the unfortunate circumstance to agree with.

3. Any idea who sells Johnny Lightning cars now? I didn't see any new ones in my travels today.

Walmart had some but if you weren't around a month ago you missed them. Target had some but if you weren't around nearly a month ago you missed them. Keep checking Toys R Us, they have been getting them over the past week, so I'm told.

Sort of, but different can be good. I didn't feel compelled to buy them though.

5. What was the last concert you went to?

Collective Soul played at the local college here. The Gin Blossoms opened up. I walked up and bought seats an hour before the show the third row from the stage for the five of us. Best money I've spent in a long time. I just hope my kids don't expect to sit that close at all of the concerts they will attend! :thumbsup:

No. That money has already been used for other things.

Pretty Silly

Other than Wal-Mart, I have no idea.

1. Will you purchase any special diecast with your tax refund? what tax refund

2. How silly does Boston look after this fiasco?



"I hope you can see this, because I'm doing it as hard as I can.
"

I can't believe Turner is going to pay $2 million out to the city for this , it's chump change for him and I am sure they got way more press out of it than they would have spent to run adds . But still , what the hell planet am I on anymore ? Stupidity should be painful , instead it is rewarded .

See now if they had put those up in cleveland , crackheads would have just stolen them and there wouldn't have been a problem .

3. Any idea who sells Johnny Lightning cars now? I didn't see any new ones in my travels today. Apperantly only OLDs , which is great an all , but I miss the days of being able to run around to different stores , get the cars I wanted and have the chance of finding WL's in the wild . Don't get me wrong I think it's cool that Mac and Milezone actually ships out WL's in the orders , but thats never gonna replace finding 3-4 WL's on the pegs in an afternoon, for me personally

Boston doesn't look silly at all. Boston did exactly the correct thing. And, they made all of the other cities who had these things, and did not realize the implications, look like fools.

1. Probably not. It will go toward insurance on the real 1/1 car.
2. That's what the fuss was about??? Wow. $2 mil from Turner later and voila!


3. I've heard that O.L.D.s have them, otherwise, it's been dry as a bone for a couple weeks now.
4. A little bit different than the norm BWF, but not that bad.
5. Back in the 80's... I forget who. :drunk:

No plans to. But I'm kinda impulsive.

2. How silly does Boston look after this fiasco?


I would have walked by without noticing. I just caught a piece of info on the local news.

3. Any idea who sells Johnny Lightning cars now? I didn't see any new ones in my travels today.
OLD and epay. Nothing much local here.

4. You think these are weird looking?

Not really. I have them all plus the white. The Mustang would be the choice car. I asked and the reply was if these sold the Mustang was next.

5. What was the last concert you went to?
A long time ago. Either Kiss or Guns and Roses. By the way, Axle just turned 45 this week (Tuesday). If he would have started the Dayton concert on time I may have stayed for more then one song.

Nothing exactly diecast. If it is good enough I would like to buy a few more acrylic cases.

2. How silly does Boston look after this fiasco?
Kind of damned if you react and damned if you don't. Everyone got in an uproar last week when some guy dumped mercury on the ground here in L.A. stating how did officials know it wasn't a dry run terrorist attack.


3. Any idea who sells Johnny Lightning cars now? I didn't see any new ones in my travels today.
I have Indiana Jones and Laura Croft working on this mystery.

4. You think these are weird looking?
Yeah. The colors and horse on the roof don't really do anything for me.

5. What was the last concert you went to?
I'm guessing Billy Idol and Faith No More in 1990 or 1991.

I went to a couple of Luis Miguel concerts last year because my sweetie likes him.

I've found plent y at WalMart the last three weekends.
4. You think these are weird looking?
About as stupid as Ford F150s with Earnhardt stickers. What is that for? The one I saw wasn't the right colors for the Colts.
