nice pics but i suspect you gotta learn the powers of taking a macro shot (you can move it back and zoom in a little for the same affect while having better focus potential)

It's great!  I was always such a huge monster truck fan growing up and it is a really well done model.

I have all but one of them (a 996), but can't remember if it's the Autoart or Minichamps version

Thanks, but only the GT40s were shot with an actual camera.  The rest are crappy cell phone pictures.  Just wanted to share what's in my collection.

Thanks Drivermann

Good, you had me worried for a second.  Haha

Make me an offer on the Hill car, as much as I love it, it just doesn't fit my collection.  (Touring and GT cars, Porsche prototypes, anything Ford)

An offer... Hmmmmm How about a family pack of peanut M&M's and half a bottle of Pepsi?  :nice:

Seriously, I'll have to check the funds, They are a little low after the Exoto Ferrari 641/2

I love those type of M&M's. You would have a deal of I had that car. I'm gonna go to Sam's Club tomorrow and get a 5lb bag. Oh my thank you.

Thanks guys.  It's not a bad model by any means.  It just sucks that 5 or so years ago you could get a fully-opening diecast racer from AUTOart or PMA for the same price.  Oh well, things change.
