I would've kept the challenger myself, but she the hottest thing on TV back in those days. Those shorts were all the rage....and I was a happy man:tongue:

LOl I wondered if anyone would see the 6 wheeler...That is another part of my collection I haven't got displayed yet due to room. I used to own a 6 wheel MAX II Amphibious rig, so now I collect them as well. My best one is a little red one that is on the display case right now. Look in the first pic, right at the bottom (on top of the school busses). That is a French model I picked up on Ebay a few years ago.

Nice collection! I have a few Jeeps myself. As far as 1:1's go, I've had a '53 Willys, '68 Commando, and a '74 CJ5. One of these days I'd like to get another just for playing with.

Why was I not notified of someone showing off jeeps! Where's the 1:1? I have to post up picks of my heeps of jeeps when I get my display back(temporarily being used as a pots and pans rack)

Nice jeeps. I see a few I don't have. I like the grasshoppers. And the surrey. Do you have a 1/24 tonka surrey? Mine is missing the top. Let me study your pics and see what I can help you with.

The 1:1 is on the first page, and/or in the shop all tore apart right now. I pulled the race engine to rebuild it over the winter, and started installing the spare so I could keep driving her. One thing led to another and now its in the middle of a brand new custom built dash install, all new wiring (firewall forward only right now), new exhaust ect. along with the replacement engine install. It'll be next spring at least before she runs again..<sigh>


I just bought a Tonka Surry on Ebay recently, just waiting on it to get here. Not sure what scale it is, supposed to be about 7" long.
I have added to this collection since these those pics were taken, here are a couple updated ones of the small stuff.
