Finds for the week: 2/25/16

I've had quite a few more nice finds since I've been on Cape Cod. Some eBay, some local. The only stores here in town are Toys R Us and Kmart, but TRU has been providing some excellent stuff lately!

Some minty Lesneys from one of the various Matchbox Facebook groups

Got these on a die cast forum for 25 cents each. 

This fits in nicely with my ever-growing 1970 transitional collection.

Some more various eBay finds.

My best deal in a while... $8 shipped from eBay. Near mint!!!

Some Kmart Day leftovers.

The excellent new Matchbox Best of World set. Missed the Dodge A100 by a couple minutes, but that's ok. It's actually my least favorite of the set. I will pick it up if I can ever find it though. 

And the sweet 2nd release of the new Ford Supervan casting. I like the earlier version better, but I see myself being a completist of this one!!

LOTS of recent finds!!

Hello everyone, long time no see! I wanted to apologize for the lack of posts lately, hopefully somebody out there has missed them! As I mentioned before, I'm still away for some job training, and will be moving somewhere to a new base within the next few weeks! So until I get settled in wherever that new place is, I still won't be able to do any customs or restorations. Don't worry though, I will be bringing my supplies with me when I move, and we'll be back to regularly scheduled programming soon!!

But for now, I have been adding to my collection regularly, and thought I'd share some of those photos. There are a lot.. So enjoy, and drop a comment with your favorite! Thanks for reading.
