VERY nice score. Tell me is that the TV Guide Petty car or the Tyco?

Oh c'mon, rub it in, give us some close ups.

The first place I ever walked in looking, I found a $10 box that was maybe 1/10th as good as that. You buy a lottery ticket too?

Five bucks!? You must have been twitching all the way home. Would that be a "holy grail" hot rod coupe in black I see?

Yeah, here in Pittsburgh, lots of back-door shenanigans (sp?) go on at the various second-hand stores here. I used to find nice lots like that.

BTW...Madsapper, that Petty Charger is a Tyco, not Afx. The Petty mail-away has the roof stripes touching the 43. Tyco's don't.

But definitely a nice catch. If that's a genuine black hotrod, easily over $600 worth of cars.

Run down on the cars.

Pickup - Nice but broken rollbar
F1 - Mint
Woody - Mint
Panel - Mint
Good Humor truck - Mint
VW - Mint, might be from RRR
Petty Charger - Body Mint, needs tires
TJet Charger - Body painted gray primer, missing bumpers
55 Chevy - Missing bumpers and hood scope
Cheetah - Mint
Black Hot Rod - Somebodys repop.

Now can someone tell me who made the Black Taxi?

also picked up a few red lines and 6 original toppers. Looked like all the stuff came in together. Going back tonight to see if I missed anything in the box. The Petty charger was mixed in with the diecast cars. There had to be a good two hundred cars in the box. After I found the AFX case on the bottom, I needed to leave.

Not sure as the picture is kinda small and I haven't clearly seen the chassis, but my guess is a Jaguar from Minic Motorway

Score - Dave 2 for 2 visits

Well I stopped by the GW store last night to see if I missed anything. Went over to the toy section and the huge box of diecast was still in the same place. So, I got an empty box from one of the lady's that worked there and one car at a time went from box A to box B. Here is what I found. 3 more original toppers. Oh I almost forgot, 1 AFX VW Thing painted red, 1 AFX black 32 Coupe - Mint and a Tyco Petty Buick, Body is in good shape but the hood and roof numbers are messed up.

BTW - The Black Taxi Mercedes Benz is made Bauer.
