ya know how you come across things you just can\'t leave the store without? That happens to me every time I go into our local Dollar General store. I always head straight for the toy section! I\'ve found some insanely cool stuff there over the years! Today was no different. i found a rack of 1/64 Maisto cars and I couldn\'t resist! Hey, they were 2 for $3!!!! Anyway here\'s the first, a Mercedes SL 55 AMG.it\'s so cool I just had to have it!!!

Hey, looks like you do have the close up shots looking much better. Nice models but I am not into them much.

That\'s how i kinda dabble in diecast. if it catches my eye then I buy it! I lost a ton of Hot Wheels and others in that darned fire! And i\'m still finding stuff almost 2 years later! And I STILL cruise the toy car section a Walmart when I\'m shopping!! They are aweful darn hard to resist!! LOL!!
One thing i noted about these is they are not riveted together, they have screws!!! Very interesting!

i would think that a machine would be easier on a toy if it was screwed together rather than riveted. Might be the reason. Could be done by automation too withour harming the toy, I would think. The old way was done by hand by holding the model in a machine.
