My answers are as follows:

1. M2 Mopar 75th 1971 Cuda

2. Chase? What chase? Never seen one in the wild! Did buy a Green Machine Trail Duster off Full Flaps (think it was FF) over a year ago - does that count?

3. Haven't sent out any RAOK's.

4. Nobody has RAOK'ed me.

5. Nope - hard enough to even find one copy of a desirable casting most of the time in my area.

6. Greenlight AMX in white/gold from latest release. Do have a chance at this one as Meijer carries GL in my area.

7. I collect, not play. That's why my cars are still low mileage creampuffs. Sure, laugh at me now but in 20 years my pristine M2 1971 Hemi Cuda will be worth megabucks when yours is a long departed memory... :tongue:

That is indeed a rare combo. JL had one a while ago, but its stance left it looking a little like a 4x4.

On to my answers.

1. What was the last diecast car that you bought? I picked up this year's Mystery '92 Mustang and Jaded about two hours ago.
2. What was the last chase that you bought? The last one I actually bought was the C6 'Vette TH, back in 2006!
3. Who got your last RAOK? TEXN and uwharrieman will be getting my most recent ones soon; their packages left out today.
4. Who was the last person to RAOK you? XOsPapa, badhemicuda, and 1970AMX.
5. Have you ever bought a car for somebody else knowing they would want it or had been looking for it? I've bought a car knowing someone--though not any one specific person--would want it; TEXN will be getting it soon.
6. What is the car out there now that you are looking for? There are way too many to list!
7. (Bonus) What is the car in your collection that you can't help playing with?:wave: I recently acquired a Monster Jam The Broker. That thing is fun! It has a rudimentary suspension/steering system, it goes great on carpet, and my cats like it, too.

Well it has been a while so here we go....

1. What was the last diecast car that you bought?
An '07 Hot Wheels '70 Chevelle Convertible.

2. What was the last chase that you bought
I found the Super Hidden '11 Dodge Charger.

3. Who got your last RAOK?
That's hard for me to say, I sent out six boxes this past week, all in one go...

4. Who was the last person to RAOK you?
Messer262. We already had a trade deal arranged, and then he added an extra box to it when he heard my news. Looking forward to when they arrive.

5. Have you ever bought a car for somebody else knowing they would want it or had been looking for it?
Sort of, I polled the guys here when the chaplain from our Hospice team told me he was looking for a blue 57 chevy convertible. He loved it, btw! I also bought an '85 Fiero for one of the clerks at a local Dollar General, but never ran into her again to give it to her.

6. What is the car out there now that you are looking for?
That's a tough one. I mean I'm still looking for 2012 T-Hunts. I have 7 out of 15 supers, and 9 out of 15 regulars. But specifically? I dunno if there is a specific one. I mean I tell everyone to buy me (when they want to get me a gift) M2 Machines, Muscle Machines, and elite Haulers. I suppose the Hauler with the volkswagen bus or the one with the tank would have to be the two specific ones I am most hoping to find.

7. (Bonus) What is the car in your collection that you can't help playing with?:wave:
I generally don't. I'm happy to just view them, occasionally move them around, change out the display here and there. But this week, with all of the neices and nephews dropping by, the one car that has gotten the most attention and pulled off the shelf the most has to be my chrome plated Hot Wheels Toilet Racer.
