    I never buy stuff online, I only go for models I find on local toyfairs, stores or fleamarkets. Found my Escalade at a classic car fair that also featured some modelcar vendors :)

    I haven't had much luck with catching toy fairs due to my schedule. Did get some luck with a couple stores and also flea markets in the past, but my go-to guy moved, and nobody else hasn't really matched what he usually carried. Anyways, couple new arrivals.

    Flea market was open today :rolleyes:
    This is most of what i bought
    3C5CE601-3262-4D60-85EA-9875A9920D61.jpeg CFF98CF2-4031-4711-8B9F-5BF09B208C7C.jpeg CF714586-B763-4EE0-9EBE-4FB640D8385B.jpeg
    all together i think it was 6£,
    The old red hotwheel is a 1980’s mercedes 540k, looks good but is in meh shape.
    I got the middle of the 3 cars in a random box for 50p, the other 2 i got for a pound together, the one on the right is from 1987.
    The 6 at the bottom were on a table for 50p each, i think they were owned by a kid as they had a few scratches and chips, but meh I’ll collect the most wrecked of hotwheels lol.
    I really need to think about getting rid of some of the weird make cars i dont want anymore. Over at least 13 years when i was given a hotwheel by a friend who found it in his desk ive collected them. I have at least 4000 die cast cars, it does sound like a lie but if you saw them all you would believe me ;)
    As always, feel free to ask any questions, i have nothing else too do so why not lol.

    I love those situations. Recently I grabbed a Hot Wheels Ferrari 360 Modena with a Coca Cola livery out of a box with scrap models for 1€, just to find out that it was a limited model for Italy only and good ones go for 80+ bucks. Sadly mine's in bad shape, but it's still a rare piece :D

    That's the new Solido model, right? Had it together with the orange one in my hand at the last fair, would have loved to buy one, but I did spend too much that day already...

    A little scenery in the garden :)

    I just realized I have a disproportionate amount of 1969 cars. Here’s another:

    1969 Mercury Cougar Eliminator.

    (I have a ton of cars from when I was a kid in a bin somewhere that are in terrible shape, too)

    i also have a weird car that has a strange story behind it,
    A few years ago i was on the beach when i found a car buried in the sand, it was rusty, paint was shedding and the wheels were bent.
    This: B97AE241-435D-48A4-B772-190CB2CF1893.jpeg
    I got it and put it away for a while and forgot about it, i found it again today and only now i realised that this must of been in the sea for atleast 5 years, it’s incredibly smooth like sea glass and pebbles, i wonder how it got in the sea :confused:
