Forgot to take a picture of a red VW Johnny Lightning transporter, love that thing.
Thanks Its the SPFL Green right? I googled the color and the pictures I am seeing of green 68's look a bit darker than mine, but the next closest colors I can find are Antifreeze and Olive, but neither of those look like what I have either.Woe, sharp little Vee-Dub!!! Great color. Congrats!
Nice Seagrave too :thumbsup:
Wow, they broke into a car to steal a couple diecast cars? I hate people sometimes.Nice VW. I had that one when I was a kid (kinda surprising since I'm 23), but someone stole it from my mom's car along with a Corgi Toyota 2000GT (the reissue, not the original).
Thanks!Just when I thought all was lost with Matchbox. That Seagrave is a MUST!
Sweet red line! I have to stop buying so many $1 cars and get some of those.
Agreed on the Seagrave, but here in North Texas they are plentiful. I left behind three more tonight.Congrats on your finds :thumbsup:
MB Seagrave is definitely going to be a hard to find car for many as that Fire Engine will be snatched up by soooooooooo many people who collect and don't callect as it is just plain cool looking.
Nice find for the Redline - definitely not a car that has been played with as it is in such great shape for its age. Now all you need to do is make a tool to straighten up them axles to make it sit correct. Nothing will change the value if you do it, so no worries. Just take your time and bend, tweak slowly on each one and presto - its new again :thumbsup:
That's my current strategy
I love looking and holding my vintage pieces and thinking-I am 18 years old. This car is almost 50. I think its extremely cool personally to hold a car that was enjoyed by the generations before me. I like thinking about who may have played with it and enjoyed it before me (and I thank them for keeping it in such good condition), and the stories that this little car can tell. And then when I bring a new piece home, its neat to me that all of these cars have been around for almost exactly the same amount of time (give or take a year or two) and this is the first time that they are coming together. Not to mention how cool it is to catch a glimpse of stylings from that era-this is especially cool with the more fictional castings such as the deora, twin mill, or splittin image.
Anyway, sorry to ramble. Thats just what excites me about vintage diecast.
And I bought this for a little more than I wanted, but it was a good deal a local antique store had a bunch of good condition redlines inside a case, and I chose this one. I bought a few more on ebay this week, I'll post them when I get them in.
Nice this brings me back when I was a KId!.......Awesome Hit!:thumbsup:
