2016 Promo Cars Are In

Posted by Swifty (Admin) at Dec 14 2016, 11:43 PM. 71 comments

2016 was a big year for the Garage. We celebrated our tenth anniversary, and our 500,000th post. We even had an awesome contest to celebrate. So what's the only thing we were missing this year?

A promo car! And with just a few short weeks left in the year, it's time to rectify that before it's too late!

So without further ado... introducing the 2016 Swifty's Garage promo car:

Posted Image

It's the MotorMax 1971 Ford Mustang Boss 351 with additional detail from ColorComp. With a racing roundel representing the year 2016 and Swifty's Garage sponsorship on the flanks, this pony is sure to gallop into your collection this holiday season.

We have 43 of them. And that's it, when they're gone, they're gone forever. There will be no additional runs of this car. Post to reserve your car in this thread - this is a first come, first served basis:

Price is $22.00 shipped (in the USA - outside the USA shipping will be at cost) for check/money order, and $23.00 shipped (in the USA - outside the USA shipping will be at cost) for those opting to use PayPal (to cover the PayPal fee). Additional car(s) available at $15.00/car.

Payment instructions:

Check or money order mailed to:

Swifty's Garage
PO Box 72
Cornwall, PA 17016

Please make checks/money orders out to me, personally. PM me for my name if you need it.

PayPal: bkiehn@gmail.com

A big thanks to 250 TR for volunteering to receive PayPal payments for this promotion. Thanks Ben!

In Memory Of Edwin Bates (be77bt)

Posted by Swifty (Admin) at Sep 18 2016, 10:27 AM. 21 comments

Posted Image

As many of you know, Ed's been in and out of the hospital this year due to heart problems. For those who don't know, he relied on a LVAD (Left Ventricular Assist Device) to keep him alive. At some point overnight he became disconnected from the LVAD.

Ed's been a friend for many years, and he's been here at the Garage since the beginning. We lived in the same city, but we met via another diecast forum years before this board was founded. Ed was released from hospice two weeks ago, and passed away at home. We had just gone to Kiddie Kar last week (and Outback Toys the day after he came home). He was really looking forward to next weekend's Matchbox show in Hershey.

Please keep his wife Beth, their children, and the rest of their family in your thoughts & prayers.

Funeral details will be posted as soon as arrangements are made. Anyone wishing to mail a sympathy card can send one to the Garage's PO box and I'll make sure Beth receives them:


Swifty's Garage
PO Box 72
Cornwall, PA 17016

Edit: Unfortunately, I can't do a c/o with the Garage's PO box. However, since this is an account specifically for the forum, I don't receive personal correspondence there. So if an envelope comes in I'll know who it's really for and I'll make sure Beth receives them.

July POTM
