You know I love the red Alfa, that's going to be in my top 5 mainlines for the year easily. The pickups are nice too, and there's something about that Screamliner that I love, reminds me of a Bugatti Type 57 Atlantic.

To me, the Screamliner is inspired by this 1935 Rolls Royce.

I'm getting the HW Mastretta MXR and the Simon & Simon Power Wagon in the mail. When they get here, I'll take some pics.

Great finds. The Fiat reminds me of a Luden's Wild Cherry Cough drop.

LOL...yeah, that's about right. Of course the New Beetle in black looks a lot like a Fisherman's Friend lozenge...

Nice. Who made the 356 you have in the background? It made me realize I am lacking a 356 hardtop in my collection, I've got the Kyosho version on my want list but that list is growing way too long to get everything on it, I need to fill the gaps with some other brands.

The 356 is a Maisto. I don't know if they still make it, but it's worth a look.

Went to Wal-Mart today and scored eight Hot Wheels. My Mastretta MXR came in the mail yesterday and I forgot to photograph it, so it's included in the photos.

I was so happy when I scored the Veneno. It's one of my favorite supercars, so it has a well-deserved place in my collection.

I know, I know but I'm not telling but here is a hint. It's best to drive that particular car on a sunny day otherwise you just get wet.....LOL

Gee, would it be the silver 250 Testa Rossa? :D It's a Hot Wheels car that I got in the mail about two weeks ago.

Yup, we have a winner! I wish they would redo this casting as it's not very accurate, but it's still one of my favorites and they have done some very nice versions of it.

Agreed. I'd love to see them do the pontoon fender 250, as well as a 250 SWB. Hot Wheels needs to do more vintage Prancing Horses.

When I went on Friday, they had a ton of them. When I scored these, there were three Venenos left. Toy scalpers work fast.
