Gadzooks N' Egads!!!

I found some unusual 'Treasures' in the Clearance Isle at Wallys
World today . . . 1/24th Franklin Mint die cast cars. I checked the other
Wally Worlds within our area and only one store had them. Originally
they were Clearanced at $60 . . . and today they were marked down
to $20. I bought a 69' Camaro Z-28 and a 57' Chevy Bel Air. The only
bad thing about them was that their boxes were in poor shape. I just
couldn't resist!

Strangely enough when I saw these cars . . . within the darkest
recesses of my mind all I could hear was Carnut at the top of his
lungs going as loud as he could . . .. "Varrroooomm . . . varooom . . . varoom!!!!"

Those Franklin Mint cars at WM were very hard to find .. Only a few stores had them . Some went for big money early on .. ( Mainly the Cuda) ... Its surprising you found any in a discount aisle ... Damaged boxes or not !!

I left the convertable Hemi Cuda behind as it looked like it was
missing a piece where the folded rag top should have been at the
rear of the car. . . otherwise I would have bought it. Did they
all come that way. I saw two Cudas and they both seem to be
missing the same piece.

Lightningprone : After searching several WM's - I did find one that had the Franklin Mint cars . I bought the Cuda & Mustang . I was concerned about the Cuda missing conv boot too . But it is in the box with the up top too .. You put on which one you want .....

"Ack Ack"

(The sound of Madmanmark choking on his tongue)

That's the final insult. First they ignore the New York stores and then, just to rub it in, they put the stuff on clearance. Fudge you, Wally!!!!
