LJ, that is really funny I picked up the bon voyage and looked at that this weekend at the same place as the HI set. IS that a hard to find car.......needless to say I didnt buy that either.

The flea market that I go too, the guy has stuff everywhere, hanging above on ropes and in cabinets as well as small 4x6 section with pegs loaded to the gills. But the majority of it is about 2,500 or more cars on a table stacked about 8 high 16 feet or so long and atleast 10 or 12 cards deep. Its really tuff to look through with out knocking everything on the floor, but that 1 car stood out in the crowd. How odd that you posted a pic of it today.

yeah theres also a white gmc motorhome in the 2 pack as well. now see the thing is.... the Rogue Hog is not listed on the back of the package.

ImageImage




and since it is backwards.. this leads me to suspect that the Roue Hog does not belong in this package...??

and mine says this...

Rouce HOG

no im not kidding.. i had it in my hand, and when i checked out, i must have sat it down, cuz when i got home it wasnt in my bag.. and i was really pissed. so i went back there the next day thinking that it might still be there, and all i found was the black version.

the only place that i can find the hotwheel 2 packs.
but yeah, if i find one, i will deffently give it to ya. :)

You're a lucky guy who has a gal that seems to enjoy your passion of collecting as much as you. Seems to have a sharp eye too 'cause not only did she find "New" releases, she found you.

I'm lucky I guess, my wife met me at the door when I came home for lunch with a bag of new finds while she was out. All new "H" case stuff.
The when I came home from work for the day she had palnned to go out hunting after dinner and got rid of the kiddes for the night. So we went out for a couple hours and hit a few stores and made a few more finds.
It was a good day.. pics to follow later.
