I love my mom!

It was about 15 of 4 p.m. today when my mom called and said that Marden's had a bunch of diecasts there. She said there was an M&Ms Halloween car and a Jack Daniels car (she couldn't prenouce 'Bowyer'), so I hopped in my car and went over. I was thinking they were Winner's Circle 1:24ths, but they were ACTION! $18 apiece! They had everything from 2000-2007. There must've been water damage at a hobby shop because most of the boxes showed some water damage, but the cars were in perfect shape. I bought 6 of them for just under $108! Three of them were Denny Hamlin's I didn't have. I'm so pumped right now! They had a bunch of other stuff like an autographed Johnson picture (it was personalized, so I didn't get it) some jackets and other stuff too)

I'll post pics later (I gotta go to work in about 10 minutes)

Here's who I got (all 1:24)

2007 Denny Hamlin No. 11 FedEx Action 'Drivers Select'
2006 Denny Hamlin No. 11 FedEx Cup Action ( 1 of 2,748)
2006 Denny Hamlin No. 20 Rockwell Automation Action (1 of 2,508)
2006 Jeff Burton No. 29 Holiday Inn Action (1 of 1,356) - this will become Scott Wimmer's lol
2006 Kasey Kahne No. 9 Dodge Dealers Fan Design (1 of 2,268)
2005 Kasey Kahne No. 9 Dodge Dealers (hometown edition)

They had Bowyer, Gilliland, Stewart (a test car), Harvick, McMurray, Nadeau, a beautiful Jeff Gordon paintscheme... it wasn't an on track one, but it was a commemorative. Very nice looking. Also had a Kenny Irwin 1997 Tonka Thunderbird.

I doubt much will be left by tomorrow, but I picked through stuff pretty good. There was even a Ragan from this year and Kurt Busch, Scott Riggs. That flooding on the east coast actually did me good.

I'm so happy right now. That saved me so much money. lol.

Must be a New England thing... Marden's is a discount store, lots of time getting surplus stuff from stores that have experienced floods, fire, whatever. I'll get some pics up when I get home from work (at work now). I'm still stoked lol.

Did they have any slightly damaged 1/64? I open them all anyway and need lots of bases for customs. I have far more decals then cars to put them on!

They had a few. Only one I can really remember was a bunch of the #41 Steve Grissom Kodiak ones. They were pretty nice, with a display stand and everything. They had a bunch of them. I assume they were 1997. Racing Champion pieces. Aside from that, they had a few program cars, but nothing else of significance.

any gordons or johnsons besides shamu
The Gordons went quick, apparently. I talked to a guy who was kicking himself for not buying a Jeff Gordon Pepsi car yesterday because it was gone today. There were no other Johnsons. There was another Gordon, but it was not run on the track, it looked like a commemorative paint scheme, had Gordon's wins on the car and images of them. They had the same for Stewart too. I doubt it would be there tomorrow, but you never know.

If you see another Burton Holiday Inn, if you could pick it up for me that'd be great. I need a Holiday Inn to put on my Wimmer shelf!
