One lowered and patinaed ‘59 Chevy Pickup.
Few things look cooler on an old splitty bus than vintage logos and a dose of patina.
For $200, this would actually be a good source for a spare drivetrain for Project Colony Ship, but I also just kinda wanna buy it and back it against the garage like a parking accident gone wrong.
The new Matchbox ‘35 Ford pickup is amazing. There isn’t a bad angle on this car. I’m really looking forward to getting this on the workbench.
All the packages from the culling post went in the mail yesterday. Anyone who wants to make offers on the leftovers, let me know before they get stripped or donated.
The first bunch of purchases are packed up and ready to ship! There is still over a hundred cars available in the culling post if you want in.
How do you haul a VW T2 gasser? With an extended T2 flatbed of course.
I’ve culled even more from my collection, and these are up for grabs as well. Please pay attention to photo notes, as the pricing is a bit more complicated this time. As before, I am very open to trades.
Project Colony Ship got a new windshield, as the old one was leaking, delaminating, scratched, and the rearview mount was missing. Being able to see clearly and see behind me is truely glorious.
I’ve been doing more culling, and will be posting another culling post later in the week. For those who already claimed stuff and paid for it, I will hold your packages til next week so you don’t pay for shipping twice if you want more.
I’m looking to purge down my collection some, so here is a bunch of stuff I’m looking to cull. I will sell or trade. If you have stuff you’re looking for, let me know. If I have it I might be willing to cull it as well.
I have no idea what I’m doing for color and wheels. However there is still a lot of grinding and sanding before i have to worry about it.
I’m almost embarrassed how quickly i will buy up VW busses with vintage logos.
Today was my last flea market trip of the year. I went looking for one cast for my custom trade with Noodles, and found something awesome.
The smart way to build this would probably have been to saw the fenders off the VW pickup. Instead i sawed two casts in half.
We all have stuff we are looking out for, so I thought we could all post up our current Want Lists and see if we can get some trades going. I’m culling again, so lets see what we can make happen.
This was as close as we got to a white Christmas.
For Christmas this year my partner and i are building an “American Girl” scale dollhouse for her daughter’s doll. The house is our project. But I took on the kitchen as my gift to her.
Found this “rat rod” monstrosity on craigslist, and the suspension design is, even to an amateur like me, absolutely terrifying.
The Lesney era Matchbox Ferrari Berlinetta from my HAWL was on the bench tonight intending to be just disassembled to go in the striiper.
