Well perhaps we should consider a name change? Composite Exchange? ABS exchange? PLastic arena?
Don't you hate it when you've tracked your purchase and expect to see the box at your front door - and instead you find a pink slip?!?! My apartment mgmt allows us to authorize them to sign for and hold deliveries but the ONE time the USPS doesn't leave it on my stoop the postman doesn't do that and instead takes it back. So I have to wait for redelivery Friday for my Exoto Jägermeister set....
Jersey_DevilChall - I feel for you, my friend. I've had days like that too ("But I was HOME all day!"). I hope it finally arrived! Uzair - you got it; and with my history of receiving models damaged during shipping, even with the Exoto nuclear-option protection I will be nervous up until the time I have it in my hands. Jim - sounds like you have to keep the Batmobile hot and ready when you have to hit the P.O.!

ibj40Bad news is due to a lot of turnover at my local PO. All the old route guys knew me as the house that got a box a day, from all over the world, and would simply leave them. I don't even recognize any of the carriers anymore.

Jersey_DevilARRGGHHHH!!! Wednesday I spoke to the P.O. depot manager AND filed online for redelivery on Friday. Today I went to the apartment manager's office after work and got a package - not the set, though! I called and it's still sitting in the P.O. so I'm going to pick it up myself tomorrow - though I was supposed to take my car in for service and registration - since the delivery guy can't be bothered, apparently...

The Urraco project is complete! If you enjoy over-edited photos, have a look at my collection thread :). http://www.diecastxchange.com/forum1/topic/203162-a-time-for-little-car-art-and-a-short-story/#entry3627394
In Prep for Gt sport ,my funds will redirected to a wheel and stand ..hopefully there are no Model bargains in the coming months..;-)
Finished an art project. The star of the piece is the Lamborghini Urraco in 1/43 scale by IXO. Feeling the happy sort of exhausted.
ChallI'll be posting it in my collection thread in a day or so. I'll leave a link below.
I'm also considering posting more art in the photography section.

Is it odd that the 1/18 Autoart Lotus Europa S is so cheap? (approx. 50 bucks)
118supercarsIf only the Exige was that cheap!

wrx_triggerhappyThe europa is a beautiful car just not that sought after when compared to the Exige. Had it been a bit more styling to the europa I would imagine it would be a compared hit.

spikyoneWhat's really weird is that they made the Europa - never that popular as a 1/1 - but no-one has made a 1/18 Evora, as far as I can tell...

Anybody else in the US had enough of Dennis Leary yelling at you about how Ford trucks are built tough for the last five years! Geez get a new spokesperson already.
AutobahnI haven't noticed; all I have noticed is the 'Truck Yeah!' being screamed at the beginning and end of each Ford Trucks commercial. They are my favorite trucks, however, FWIW.

118supercarsMy '97 F-150 is coming up on 190,000 miles and still in such good shape...I haven't seen what you're talking about but I know that he is talking truth.

Just snagged a 1:43 SLR McLaren Stirling Moss in silver for a very reasonable €56 all in. Lots of sentimental value in that car for me.
If you didn't order the new batch of GT Spirit models, American Excellence now has them in stock.
Witnessed this morning: an STI wing on a honda civic is just wrong. Plain wrong.....
protzeneggerThe worst offense is putting Subaru parts on lesser vehicles :)
Apr 21 2017 12:07 PM
AutobahnAmen to that. Those who put badges where they don't belong are no better. I have not tried to make my Fusion an RS or an ST, but I see AMG and M badges on rank-and-file Mercedes and BMWs frequently, and not on the cars with sport appearance packages from the manufacturers. In other words, they are glued on by the owner to gain 1 or 2 horsepower.
Apr 24 2017 08:44 AM
wrx_triggerhappyWouldn't say its offensive. It's just silly to do on a FWD sedan with no power. Mugen Intega - love it, new civic - the design is competing. I mean I get it, its your own car so you can do what you want with it but at least take off the STI logo.
