    That was cool, I loved the police car bit:mrgreen: I think you should've tossed in Steve McQueen or his truck, though, would've been a neat cameo:rolleyes::mrgreen:

    WOW,:eek: that is one heck of an order:thumb:... Athearn is coming out with some A line trailers the first of next year.. I want to get a few for those monster trucks we've been getting from Walmart..Those trucks have such a long wheel base that a 40 or 45 ft trailer looks to small on them, heck the truck is about half a long a 40ftr!!:mrgreen: They are way to modern for the layout but they do look good, so we're collecting them just to have them.

    I bought one for 3.99, the grille is very cheesy. But for 3.99 I think it looks beter than a promotex/herpa and I can always replace the grille for a few bucks if I really want. But I like them. Now if only they had a GMC General or Mack R. There is a General down the street in very rough shape. In a few years, if it is still there I might try to turn it into a Pulling tractor (for tractor pullsl). Donations excepted.sign1sign1sign1

    That's about right, for that price I can live with the flaws. They have Fresh Cherries and Reel Rides cars as well, there around 2 bucks apiece.
