    I think that they run between 3.87 for the smaller stuff to the 5.99 mentioned.

    Just wondering, does it have to be real cars? I ask because I have the 5 Final Run Cars from 2005 and I'd like to show them, they're pretty cool, even if I would rather DIE sooner than open up their cassessign1

    Just had to put these pics here

    here are some pics of some new HO vehicles I got yesterday.

    First one up is the new Mini Metals 59 Ford Fairlane.Don't know where they got the Fairlane name from because this ain't one. but it is a 59 Ford and a very nice one to boot.(At $12.00 a copy it should be)I still like it and have the N scale version on order too.

    Next one up is a Johnny Lightening 1999 IHC straight truck.It is very nice IMHO and even has a hydralic lift gate modeled but non working.JL needs to do more of these trucks :D

    Both of these beauties have nicely detailed under carridges and the truck is assembled with screws.I bought two of the trucks and am thinking of making the second one a flatbed.(the trucks are only $4.00 each :) )
