I stopped into a local hobby shop and ended up picking up a bunch of loose cars for 50 cents each.

First,here's a few older cars. Blue Jaguar XJS,"T-Totaller",a Stutz Blackhawk I don't have,a Sweet Sixteen,and a Porsche 924.



Also I got some more recent cars. Didn't have the UNO baja bug yet,the UH ford woody was too neat to pass up,and I didn't have the ram or the forklift (I want to make a junkyard diorama eventually). Also was able to fill a lot of holes in my rigor motor collection,and the funny thing is I was looking at some of them on evilbay last night,but decided to hold off on them.

Nice stuff. That Sweet Sixteen looks like one that was in an Avon Holiday set a few years back with a Passion and either a red baron or vicky.

Nice finds! Need to find that Baja Bug. I had no idea HW made a forklift :confused: :thumbsup:
Yes, there was at least 3 different forklifts. A blue and white one, a yellow and black one, and the red one pictured.

Cool,I didn't realize it was that recent. I was thinking it was at least from the 80's.
The way it looks, once it's loose, it's hard to tell except for the decals on the paint are a giveaway. Older castings were tampo free. I have the KB set from a few years ago with the blue and gold repaints. I believe one had redline tires to make it look more original.

Your blue Jaguar looks excellent. I didn't know Mattel made that one.

On the other hand, I found the orange car a bit difficult to recognize as a Porsche 924. It looks like it has a '68 Camaro belt line from here!

The Stutz is a cool one to have, too. I have a black one with blue/red pin stripes, but it's a bit battered, but it was the right price, free!

I've actually been looking for a decent XJS for a while,I have one but it's pretty beat up.

As for the orange porsche,I couldn't tell what it was at first either,until I picked it up and had a closer look at it. The Stutz is one of my favorite HW castings,but other than the brown one I only have a gray one and the more recent one from the tattoo(?) series a few years ago.
