    I went to Wal-Mart today to see if they had any HO scale (1:87) vehicles for my soon to come layout. I checked near the Hot Wheels cars and to my suprise they had HO scale vehicles!! They had the following:

    $1.67 cars
    Pontiac - Firebird
    BMW - assorted
    Shelby - Cobra
    Dodge - Viper
    Porshe - assorted

    I'm sure they have more, I just grabbed them all.

    $2.67 cars
    Athearn John Deere tractors
    50 class
    100 class
    G480 class

    I would easily pay more money than to give it to Walmart.

    When your local hobby shop goes out of business, no need to scratch your head and wonder why.

    I just returned from Wal-mart tonight. I found there a 1956 school bus made by johnny lightning, looks pretty close to 1/87 for a mere 2.92. It's painted in a 'pez' cndy scheme but I plan to repaint it.
    I think this is the same bus that Shaygetz used for his railbus project.
