Every year (well twice a year) i go up to zephyrhills florida for the classic car swap meet. There always killer deals on parts , memoribila , literature and of coarse lots of classic cars....

This year i decided to bring some cash with me and pick up some of the killer deals on diecast and history books ..

So not to be outdone by lowlows recent cars heres the cars i got :
1973 Eldorado Indy Pace car
1988 Audi Quattro LWB coupe
1984 Mustang SVO
1985 Fiero GT
heres some pics of the collection , some cars are tucked away right now ....
the caddy shrine

the svo

this one mccombie might love , the two baddest rally cars of the 80s:

fiero , chevy crawford and kitt

The Audi (im loving it !!)


As for the books :
1)Standard Catalog of Cadillac 1903-2005 ,this thing is awesome year by year changes and numbers its like haveing sandy in your room only without the cigar smell
2) Cadillac Allante book , basicly all the magaize articles that came out on it over the years , very interesting year by year notes ...
3) 1984-1988 Pontiac Fiero performace review
4) American Firetrucks Photo book (i love my firetrucks)

Ahhhh... Z-hills. Spent a week there in the mid 80's throwing myself from various "perfectly good" airplanes (including a 1923 Navy N3-N3) plus a little off-airport activity involving a female park ranger. :shhh: :devil:

ah :annoyed: piss on stock, its no fun. boring. so what size are all yours? i dont hardly collect 1:18, they are too big and take up alot of space. i do like the detail though. i have made a few special occasions, like Cadillac XLRs and Maserati's and Corvettes and Ferraris. but other than that... nah. i did get a Dropstar XLR in 1:24 (actually i think theirs are 1:20 but im not sure). and i got a 1:24 Big Time Muscle Corvette.

huh, our parts counter doesnt sell them, it would be cool if they did though cause id already have them. shoot they are like what 80 bucks or something? im gonna check Cadillac's website.

hey, you still got that thing from Hallmark you showed us, what was it, last year? that Cadillac/ Buick dealership from the 30s or something? i wonder if they still sell them?

now that would be cool. i am gonna make an older dealership from the 30s like the hallmark one. i got a 32 Phaeton and a 34 Fleetwood so i got two for my 30s collection. they are 1/32, i wish i could find more of the 30s model Cadillacs. that is my dream to make one of them.

the CTS-V racecar has been a dissapointment for me .....while its detailed to the max and it looks wesome nothing opens up ....its a curbside ....but i got it becuse i like the cars so much ...otherwise i normally dont buy ....i like to open them up and look inside and everything ...

GMP's Grand Nationals are frickin sweet too , they even have keys in the iginition that dangle like the real thing ....I still havent bought one ....I know i can get them pretty easy so i passed 3 up to get the SVO which is very hard to get now

I have that Eldorado Pace Car too. They also used to have normal Eldorados thats what I really wanted but they don't make them anymore and I couldn't get one the colour I wanted so I got the Pace Car instead.

I'd give $100 for a 75/76 Caddy. I'd use it as a hood ornament if it was 1:36 or smaller... still over half a foot at that scale...

I found some 92-02 Eldos, but they were very poorly done...
