Did our annual visit to the local car museum/antique mall as a late Father's Day event for my brother/dad/I. Found these older ones! I missed finding that black w/ flames Silverado back in 09, happy for that. Also glad to find the black ct wheel variation for that Nissan truck. The black '57 Chevy is more of a filler piece until I find a nicer one, but for $1.25 a piece for the loose cars...I didn't even think twice! The RR Turbo Streak is the nicest of the loose bunch. I had to have the Hi-Rakers Ford coupe.

hm...., do you mean you can bargain? at antique mall?
last time i went to antique mall, only often see, above $10/ item get 10% disc.
I tried to bargain more, but the guy was pretty adamant because everything he had was "older"...:rolleyes: because they are 10+ years old that means they're worth more than $1, right?

Nice finds.
At least you were able to knock a buck off the asking price.
Yeah, not going to lie I was a bit bummed when he told me "most everything is $5 a car unless marked for more"..when a lot of these cars are $1-4 all day every day on eBay and such.

But I got caught up in the sheer volume he had LOL. Easily 5k+ HW
