I had purchased 6 Model Motoring Willys Gassers that were blems on Ebay a while back. I thought I could use them in some projects. As luck would have it, I was cruising the webbernet and I found some race pictures on the ECHORR website featuring the "Willy’s Extravanganza". You can see them here. Apparently you could modify a Willy’s body much like the Dirt Modifieds in the50’s and 60’s. Then run the car on a Fray chassis. I thought this was pretty cool so I decided to try one for myself.
Just an update on trackside structures I am working on.The first shot is a small grandstand with a press box on top.There are over 200 figures on this unit.The second is a 2 section,20 row set of bleachers.This unit has over 500 figures on it.the third shot is 3 restrooms like the ones tracks used before porta-pots came along.The forth shot is the start of a pit garage with 5 bays on each side.the fifth shot is a small 3 section bleachers.there are about 200 figures on this unit so far.The last shot is a 3 section set of bleachers,20 rows high.I hate to think about how many figures this one will take.It is a lot of work putting the figures on,but I think the over all effect is worth the time and work.

Four more Matchbox Powertrack 6V cars from the U.K. I reckon these cars look fantastic and are very well built too. The red Ford Escort is the only newer style British Escort I have and I don't know why the other makers didn't give this model a go. It looks great ! Some VHTF Tomy AFX cars thrown in for good measure. Read more about Recent Purchases
A mixed lot here all acquired from the U.S and the U.K including a very rare carded AFX Capri which astonishingly attracted very little attention. I can only put it down to an incorrectly spelled listing for an AFX "Carpi" instead of Capri. Thanks to Ray, I got this rare bird very cheap indeed and even with added postage costs from the U.S, it still came well under what I'd expect to pay for one in this condition.
