Not bad at all. I found 7 brand new Lightnings at WalMart yesterday: Classic Gold Futura (2) and Eldorado, Pony Power Mustang and Javelin, Retro Talladega and Muscle Cars 1967 442. Then today I went to the Motorsports show in Atlantic City, and picked up 4 more: Working Class 55 Ford Panel, 50 Suburban, 66 CJ-5 and a Gold Series Boss 429. The cars today were only $4.00 a piece, which is real good for a show like that. In both places there were more new Lightnings to choose from, but I figured I had spent enough on Lightnings for one weekend. Besides, while at the A.C. show I also picked up a GMP Swamp Rat III (replaced one I broke) and three 70 car display cases. I wanted more, but I could only carry so many to the train station. :rolleyes:

Yep. Now my boys and I can spend next weekend opening enough old Johnny Lightnings to fill those display cases. I'm looking forward to it, but it's gonna hurt. :thumbsup:

My son and I went to the show on Friday via train.Picked up some decent stuff. Did you go to the table where the guy had 2 large boxes full of W/L's?
He told me he bought someone's collection.

I saw a guy with two boxes of older Lightnings, but I didn't see any whites. Of course, I went on Sunday, so somebody else must have snatched them up before I got there. In the past, I've always gone with my boss on Friday afternoon. As of January 1, I have a new boss, so I didn't figure I could just get up and leave at 10:00 am to go toy collecting. :(
Anyway, I bought the Lightnings and the display cases from a guy from New York. He had a bunch of large scale die cast, the plexiglass cases, and a couple of rows of brand new Lightnings.

It was a great weekend for you and remember: "Pain is just weakness exiting the body". :tongue: The memory you will have of your boys will make it all worth while. :thumbsup:
