    Wow, the original package! Great find. Funny how we all thought glass roofs were the wave of the future!

    A red Mercedes GP car, pretty unusual! It kind of looks like the Great Ones Car, Juan Manuel Fangio! Note the short sleeved polo shirt and cork helmet. [video=youtube;L7Ifcgl789E]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L7Ifcgl789E[/video]
     
  10. Got it on Craigslist with a bunch of Corgis and other diecast models.

    I forgot, Saturday, I ended up at the lake front, when I saw a yard sale sign, Hot Wheels. I kept going, it was stop and go traffic, real slow, but the sign got the better of me! One way street so I had to go way back around since it's one big block. I parked illegal, since it was the motorcycle I was all right. I asked if he had the Snake & Mongoose, you would know, he sold them the week before! Then I asked if he had the SoCal Belly Tank car, He didn't know what that was, almost left. I decided to go through some, and picked these up. The Batmobile, Talbot Lago, GT40, 427 Cobra S/C, and whats a Cobra without a Ferrari? I am pretty sure non of them are very valuable, maybe VC will chime in. Great price, so I have a small collection now! [​IMG]
     
  13. Still in the package---nice.

  16. The Batmobile is fairly new but highly collectible and the Talbot Lago is from about 1996. I wouldnt open that one.
