After reading about Stoney and Lowlow's die-cast cars, I thought I'd post my collection (good excuse to take them off the shelf and dust them). Since I'd never be able to afford all the cars I love, I've decided I can at least have them on a 1:18 scale:

2005 Corvette

And even though it's not die-cast or a car, my favorite model is my B-52 Stratofortress:

This will have to do. It's actually a toy that lights up and drives, but the batteries are dead.

Wow nice rides. All I have now is a 66 Chevelle SS in all black. But will be adding more. I used to have like 20 different one but my cousin thought they were toys and was crashing them around and I got pissed after they were broken and threw them away.

Hey Stoney, did you see the pic I posted on the Veteran's Day thread (http://www.cadillacforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=57515)?

When I was a kid, we'd sometimes park on the highway that ran past the end of the runway at the base (Dyess AFB, TX) and watch the B-52s doing a MITO (minimum interval take-off). It was such a rush to see those big, bad planes coming at you with those eight engines screaming and belching out black smoke (this was in the late 60s, early 70s). I wish we'd had a movie camera back then.
