Ok , so as yall know its been a rough couple days looseing the job and apartment and everything. I took all my furntiure i bought back excpet for one thing. I decided this peice i had to have , for my sanity.

Coarse the Diecast Caddys and other cars (mustangs, Audis etc) are in there along with the VHS for the 1994 Deville Intro , The Sales Brochure and other little things from caddys. Also My CTS-V driven by Any Pilgrim is in there , which is signed by Andy Himself

On top of it is my GMP Turbo Offenhouser with an acutal piece of the pavement from Indinapolis Motor Speedway when it was resurfaced a couple years ago.

I have one of those brochures too, to me the pics made the cars look a lot cooler back then, now everythings silver or in the desert.

Yeah, I've got the '78 Brochure and I know what you're talking about.

Benzilla
10-05-06, 11:10 PM
I want to get a '78 brochure, so far I have '79, '83, '94, '95, '96, '97, '07.

I also have one that my grandfather got for a 1937 Chevrolet. It's funny how they always make the cars look way lower than they really are.

:yeah: I have to agree, that was a good idea to hold on it it and make a nice home for the collection. Plus you've got a bunch of Hot Wheels !! I still have one left over from when I was a kid. It's one of the ones with the red stipe on the wheels, a Military Police Van. :)

:D you know... its bad when i have as many Cadillacs as you do diecast cars. once again :D . seriously though, beautiful! very nice cabinet, wish i could find one like that. my whole room from one wall to the other is lined with 1/24-1/18 (with a few 1/32, 1/43, and 1/64). im out of room. what sucks now is my home computer (laptop) crashed on tuesday. got a virus so now i have to go and get windows xp rebooted. anyone got that disc so i dont have to pay 200 bucks? i am done for a while. just got my Franklin Mints i ordered (5) and so it will be a while before i get anything else. well i bought a car off of ebay that i thought was cool as hell (its different looking):

Wow that's a lot of hot wheels. I dont have a collection of anything (unless you count 16 second timeslips, got over a hundred of those.) The diecast collection looks really cool.

A word of advice, if you don't already know this. When buying Windows OS disks. Purchase an OEM copy from a place like newegg.com (one of Sals advertisers here). The OEM is exactly the same version as what you would buy in a store at basically half the price. So a new copy of WinXP home is 89.00 + 5.00 shipping, and currently they throw in a copy of Windows Vista Beta 2 for free. (Win XP Pro is 139.00 vs 299.00 in the store)

Microsoft Windows XP Home With SP2B 1 Pack - OEM at Newegg.com (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?item=N82E16832116056)

well to total up all of my cars (as of 0103am on 6Oct06) i now have 316 cars ranging from 1/32-1/18. i dont count anything smaller than 1/32. 1/32 i have 6 cars and they are all Cadillac's. 1/24-1/18 are the rest (majority going to 1/24). 1/18 has to be something i really really like cause they take up waaay to much room. i do have 1 more coming and its that one i just posted pics of earlier. i got another cabinet from my parents. well it is actually a tv stand but the part where the tv sits is being converted to about 4-5 more shelves.

Mike- if you want a good realistic looking road pic, i have found out that black roof shingles work WONDERFUL! especially if you set up a diorama. just an enthusiasts hint to cool pics.
