I'm on the road again now, and stopped at a WM I haven't been to in a while. New Johnny's are starting to show up around here, and I figured I might see something interesting at this one.

Was I ever right!

They had a bunch of the newest releases on the pegs, and one of them stopped me in my tracks.....

What's this, a white interior??? WITH WHITE TIRES???!!!!!!!

WaaaaaaaaHooooooooo!!!!!!!

Of all the cars to find after a very long drought, I found maybe the coolest one to hit in this series - and my very first white tired WL ever found on a peg, EVER .......

the 1968 Olds 442!!!!!

It's late, I just got home a while ago, and no time for a pic right now, sorry.

Odd part is that there were only nine cars on the pegs..... someone had been there, and left this one! It doesn't get any easier than a white tired WL, does it?

Gadzooks N' Egads!!

The drought has ended for myself as well. I managed to
find four WLs this week (yr.). Unfortunately, I didn't find any
new releases. I managed to find the following WLs:

Clue Series - 1948 Tucker (White Mags and Base/#6)
Zingers - 1970 Chevy Nova (Flat White paint job/Super Nova#45)
Zingers - 1970 Dodge Challanger T/A (Flat White paint job/Top
Challenger/#46)
Spoilers - 1957 Chevy Nomad (Flat White Paint job/#01)


Ironically, I couldn't bring myself to do the dance as my finds
just didn't excite me, as in Carnuts case, when he discovered his
treasure in the wilds of Wal Mart. It seems to take a really great find
in order to get me to put on my dancing shoes anymore, and that doesn't
happen very often in this city, which I refer to as 'This Dustbowl for diecasts.'
