  • So I Had a Weak Moment...

    Went back to Fastlane Classic Cars the other day and couldn't help myself. They were in the colors of "The lady" and "The Slut"

    About 10 years ago, Toys r Us was closing out very similar die cast metal models for $10.00. I visited a couple of stores and scored the blue one and 2 red ones. I couldn't find the green one anywhere. Finally bought a green one in the box at a swap meet for $30 about 3 years ago. They are all right hand steer, with working steering, doors that open, and the bonnet opens too. The box says " American Muscle" (seriously?) and Ertl Collectibles. Enjoy. I love mine.

      I picked up a black ERTL '74 TR6 earlier this year on Marketplace. It's got the early TR6 sticker on the rear wings. So much for attention to detail.

          I have a set of the 6's in 1:18 in green, red and blue with the convertible top up. About all I can afford for cars right now! Enjoy Kevin. They are a must to your collection

            Did they come with a little oil mat?

              I drained the oil in mine so they don't leak all over the display cases

                Nice cars Kevin! This is a 1/43 scale (about 3.5" long) DetailCars diecast. I bought it about 15-20 years ago but don't remember where. It had a side view mirror on it but broke it off, didn't even realize it until I took these pics. Lots of detail for a 1/43 scale.
