VERY nice score. Tell me is that the TV Guide Petty car or the Tyco?
Oh My friggin' GOD!!!!!! :freak: :eek: :eek:

I'll bet you're not planning on parting with any of them either,eh? lol
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?

Cool find and at a great price - that's .46 cents per car - you lucky dog. I'll gladly buy any at $5.00

Five bucks!? You must have been twitching all the way home. Would that be a "holy grail" hot rod coupe in black I see?
That has to be the best find...EVER
I meant it, there has to be about 600.00 worth of cars there.
Holy Crow! Nice haul.. I agree with Ed that is by far the best 5 buck haul I have ever seen on this or any other board....and take the advice get a powerball ticket NOW....


(Then do not forget your friends at hobbytalk when you win.)
oh dang.

i NEVER find stuff in Goodwill or Salvation Army anymore.

this is not to say I dont look...

very sweet haul.

Holy Slotcars..
You must have hit a portal to the past dude.That is one of the best scores I have seen.. Hats off to the Bargain of the century..

(Dang now my keys are wet)
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.
Luckiest guy of 2007 by far on this board.... :drunk:
I can't wait for the day when I stumble across a find like that. I only hope it's in this lifetime. :eek: rr
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.

See less See more
Nice haul...
Those kind of things are few are far between these days...
BTW, do you do any racing up there in Westminster?

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.

WOW Bauer are finely detailled and kinda expensive
