Well, it started with the Mustangs. I got 3 sets and one was a set of 18's. I also received a golden ticket that I redeemed for the chase car and when it arrived, a co worker noticed that it was also number 18. I was shocked and though that having all 4 #18 Mustangs would be cool. After a thread here did not turn up the BWF 18, I joined a couple other boards. I posted a thread at Lightning Lane and within an hour the guy that had #18 stepped forward. That completed the Mustangs and began my quest to get all of the 2006 Fest castings.

I guess I should come up with something cooler for why I collected all the 18's. Hmmmm.

Not so fast, Shonsky!!!!

One of those cars looks to be upside down, which means that instead of an "18", what you really have is an "81" !!!!
:tongue: :p :cool:

Congrats, Nick, it took a lot of "stick-to-it"ness to track all those down, and thanks to all the Hobby Talkers who helped him out :thumbsup:

I don't know....looks like 810 too me ;)

Wow...looks great. It's cool to get the matching numbers. Now all you need for fest next year is a BWF football jersey with the #18.....:eek:

I am not following you.

I was at Fest and there were 12 castings that I saw that were created for Lightning Fest. :confused:

There are 16 total LightningFest related castings if you include castings that support the show beforehand like the Pace Cars and support the ADDWC charity like the Mustangs. Don't forget their is always a Holiday Car program.

Way to go Nick now what?
Good queston. With this set complete (minus whatever Mark is talking about) and also having all the JL BWF castings, I am not sure. I guess I will have to try for those mystery holiday cars. And maybe try to get Stupidsquirels to have a PIP made of my soon to be 1:1 1970 Bronco.

OK, NOW all the 18's are home!

The package with the Holiday cars arrived today and all 4 #18's were inside.

Thanks Mark!
