    When I was in junior high, I had to go to the local five-and-dime to get a book bag (parochial school thing.) Old and dusty store. Up on a high shelf, they had a big display card, half full, of Lesney Matchbox cars, early pre-Superfast ones. If I knew then what I know now (and had any money of my own to spend...) :tears:

    My Dad worked at a stamp and coin shop, the original collectables right? They branched out in to stuff like this at some point. I was a complete addict.

    A good example of the collection I had.

    The guy mentions that the cars would fall out of the sales display? The cars you actually purchased were in those cool little minty boxes on the shelf. ;)

    It *might* have been nice with just the "wood" on the sides and tailgate, but tan rims, gold hubcaps, and all the red trim ruined that chance. Even the dash would look good without it. :dontknow:

    I don’t mind it except the wheels, dash, and tailgate.

    Charred remains of Tesla Model X found on frozen Lake Champlain

    SHELBURNE, Vt. —
    Over the weekend, a Tesla Model X caught fire on the frozen surface of Lake Champlain in Vermont.

    The fire happened around 8 p.m. on Sunday, and the fire almost completely consumed the vehicle.


    A few news reports had mentioned the burned-up Tesla. So, we decided to walk out onto the lake and have a look:

    The Shelburne Police Department tells Popular Mechanics that the owner of the vehicle took their Tesla onto the ice to go fishing, and that at some point during the expedition the car hit a rock.

    That interior looks like it smells of stale beer. old sweat and mold. Lots of room for a body to be slung around in an accident also.

    I love that '58 Ranchero. It looks killer, cool they didn't turn it into a street freak by jacking it up sky high and kept it almost level but just a slight front up stance. Perfect!

    This is a cool FB page also. Thanks P-B.

    '55 M-100. Too bad these are non-existent this far south (NC) I never saw one when I used to go junk yard prowling in the '70s and '80s. It would be easy to make a fake on out of a F-100 though.
