It starts today. I am doing my annual excursion through southeastern Utah, southwestern Colorado, and northern New Mexico on my way to Albuquerque, arriving in time for the festivities to begin. I will be busy this year, streaming a few things live on the Lamley YouTube Channel (including the 2019 New Model Preview on Saturday … Continue reading Here are some of my favorite Matchbox Convention exclusives from years past.
Car Culture is at the point that every release has incredibly high expectations. That is a blessing and curse to be sure, but thankfully it has been far more blessing than curse. Shop Trucks is the third mix released in 2018 (outside of Team Transport), and my guess is this will be a popular one. … Continue reading Opening Hot Wheels Car Culture Shop Trucks
No. I'm just answering the question in the title right off the bat. The purple RLC Selections '66 Nova, which arrived at collector's homes this last week, will not garner the same secondary market prices that accompany the Candy Striper '55 Gasser these days.

I went to high school and college in AZ, and Mom still lives … Continue reading Hot Wheels 2018 N Case Highlights

But when you do get one in hand, you can see all the effort that goes into each model. And if you have … Continue reading The latest from Auto World is a pretty bunch of cars.
