Remember when collectors/scalpers were picking up EVERYTHING VW bus diecast? Matchbox, HW (of course) and even that ugly early JL casting bus? The GD and yellow VW bus have been keeping the pegs warm here for awhile.

Heck, I left the VW Bug and Bus of those new Universal Monsters on the pegs earlier today. Didn't care for the tampos much.

Even with a buy 2 get 1 free promo, just couldn't do it...

AAARRGGG! How could you leace the universam monsters sitting. I would have snached them up in a heartbeat.
it's as easy as "damn, that sure looks ugly" and just walk on by....i left 10 sets of them hanging in this past week of shopping (and 12 of the ho,ho,ho vw beetles).... :roll: roll on by....

That is my 1950 split window beetle. I had him parked at the fest in the century center this year. He is a future 1:1 JL. :wave:

There must be some VW nuts in my area. I went to a store today and found the new Holiday Classics series. I'd say there were probably 3-4 of each car, except there wasn't a SINGLE VW in the bunch. No bug and no ghia. Everything else was still there. It's unreal how fast these guys grab the VW's. I'm not complaining though...better than having em warm the pegs.
