    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 :) )

    The scene with the semis and cars on a four lane road? That is just a piece of old paneling I cut down and painted. Nothing really fancy..I use the KISS method..:thumb:

    Since my layout will be building a new building we needed a new crane to reach the distances and to lift the loads the building is going to require. So, before we could build the building the crane had to be built. Here are some of the pictures of the crane being assembled. It was very exciting!! :mrgreen:

    I have found some really good vehicles at wally world lately. Actually 1:87. Cars for $2 and semi tractors for $4. Hey trucklover, did you drive at one point in time? Just curious cause I spent about 6 mos. otr before I called it quits. Liked driving but hated every other part of the job:)
