Just for the fun of it.
I found this Hot Wheels '62 Chevy pickup at Dollar General the other day. I couldn't pass it up because I had a white '62 Chevy pickup I drove through high school and into the first years of marriage. It was a short stepside that I put a 283 V8 and 'glide into, with a 4:11 posi, lowered with F60 rubber and white spoke wheels. It was loud and looked good, and was a gas hog with the Carter AFB. Not a whole lot different than this Hot Wheels one.

Not too much old stuff, but from maybe mid 80's on as the kids were growing up, kinda handed from one to the next, gotta be 100 or so in the attic, but a pain to get out so they will sit for now, #3 went bigtime into nascar units, so only a few matchboxafter 2000,probably 100 of those, now we pick em up for the grandson, but I don't follow what brands he's getting, but he probably has 30 or 40 already.
I've got a bunch of Majorette cars I've been picking up at resale shops. They were my favorite as a kid because they almost all had an opening door or hood and there were alot of "regular" cars. Also I thought it was cool that they were made in France. Now unfortunately Majorette seems to be just a brand name slapped on generic asian toy cars with no particular special features.
As I move fully into HO scale though, I'm thinking of letting them go along with some matchbox and others. Should I put them up for sale/trade here at the Depot before going to Ebay?
I'm a big fan of the Tootsietoy Caddy. I have a black one on my layout for the JNXT Legal Staff.

yardmaster54: Jerry if they would take out 1/3 of the commercials that shorten the game by at least 45 minutes. Abd as far as watching the game that's the purpose of it ,to get all your hostilities out so when your in the TT and a locomotive won't work you won't throw

JNXT 7707: Get rid of commercials? Now you're really fantasizing!
Oct 16, 2019 18:10:13 GMT -5
yardmaster54: Not all, only about 1/3 of them. And isn't life just a fantasy gone wrong?

JNXT 7707: I dunno ym, the Packers are 5-1 - I'd say it's a fantasy gone right!
Oct 16, 2019 20:55:58 GMT -5
JNXT 7707: OK folks, I just received a box from ym. It is now under Level 5 security protocol - the highest level possible. Look for a detailed report on the "a box from" thread, barring a worst case scenario of course

JNXT 7707: I can hardly keep up with the posts today - you guys are a bunch of chatterboxes

yardmaster54: Jerry you hurt my feelings thinking I would send you something bad. I was thinking of sending you a block of limburger cheese. I know how you packer fans like cheese.

rbturner: That sounds totally appropriate since Jerry is the big cheese.
Oct 18, 2019 21:15:18 GMT -5
rbturner: Until his wife shows up then he becomes a cheese puff.

JNXT 7707: I like deep fried cheese curds better

JNXT 7707: Woke up to learn there was a tornado in Dallas last night
Oct 21, 2019 7:56:21 GMT -5
yardmaster54: Hope there were no injuries.
Oct 21, 2019 14:55:45 GMT -5
JNXT 7707: None here, but the same system moved on into Arkansas and killed someone. I opened the weather site last night and it said there were thunderstorms in the area, no mention of tornadoes. We slept right through it all.
Oct 21, 2019 18:00:32 GMT -5
yardmaster54: The news said there were 3 f3 tornadoes in Dallas. The news showed a lot of damaged.
Oct 21, 2019 18:11:04 GMT -5
rbturner: Sounds dangerous to be in Texas. Maybe you should move back to WVa.
Oct 21, 2019 21:52:45 GMT -5
JNXT 7707: That is the best idea I have heard all year, Randy Fe. I wonder how road-worthy the TT is?
Oct 21, 2019 22:21:22 GMT -5
hypoponera: It might be easier for you to just drop it here. I have an acre that I am not using and we don't get tornadoes!
