Modified Chevy Race Cars

I was checking out my new Johnny Lightning Modified Chevy and decided to do a comparison picture with the old Zee Toy I had in the case.  They look good together like they just slugged it out on the track.  I didn't realize it when I bought it but the JL is an older Ertl casting. It still has the Ertl company info on the base. I didn't have the original issues, so it's nice to finally get the model.

Toy Show 2013

I just got back from the toy show in the city and I found a few things.  There were alot of people out hunting today and the venders were selling, but for me I didn't find as much as I usually do.  But I did, and of course it was fun to hunt for it.  On a side note, my wife found 2 new citizens of Spiralton that were hiding in a cigar box at one of the vender tables. (The little red guys)
Below is a pic of the new additions to the museum.

Happy 2013, Elvis Style

I hope you all are doing well so far this year.  The museum's first picture on the facebook page was a study of French design in the 90s.  In contrast, on the this blog, I would like to start with a good ol' American over-the-top bling bling Cadillac made for Elvis.  If Elvis was a superhero this would be his "Batmobile".  It reminds me of the 60s TV Batmobile which would make since since both were designed by George Barris.
Oh by the way, this model is a Hot Wheel and was issued in 1997.
