I’m not sure if you noticed but FEEBAY in ridiculous :wow!: there is no way I would pay $24.99 plus $4.99 shipping for a 2020 boxed 1/64 scale car. The sad part there are some dumb dumbs that pay this price and they continue to raise. Here is what I saw. They started at $14.99 plus shipping. Once sold raised to $15.99 plus $1.00 shipping. Once that sold move to $19.99 plus $4.99 shipping. Now once again once sold moved to $24.99 plus $4.99 shipping. Does anyone else feel this is ridiculous gouging? FEEBAY makes me sick has taken all the fun out of the hunt Lthumbsdown:. I have been looking for either of these Littles at a reasonable price and found the above. I’m sorry venting!! In my opinion takes the fun out of collecting Lthumbsdown: As you all know I am not a social media person. I don’t waste my time on FB, Twitter, Snapchat or Instagram!!! Frustrating first off finding them and ridiculous prices don’t make it any easier or enjoyable!!!

It sucks, but if people are paying it, they’ll keep selling that high. Personally, a newer 1/64 like that wouldn’t be worth that much cash, but I guess there are some people that’ll pay it. I’d think it’s just because Chase just won the title, maybe the they’ll settle down in a few months. It seems like more people are getting into the hobby right now as well, I’ve noticed that in several collector hobbies I have. Maybe it’s because of the pandemic, people staying home and looking for something to enjoy. I dunno, good luck on the hunt, hopefully you’ll find some at reasonable prices.

I’m hoping you are right. In a few months maybe the Chase Elliott market will settle down. Another valid point more people looking to do something during COVID 19. I appreciate the post I hope to find them at a reasonable price also.

There’s a sports store at the mall that carries NASCAR diecast, in the past I’ve had luck finding some sold out cars still sitting on his shelves as he doesn’t get a ton of business. Are these the only two 1/64’s you’re looking for? It’s a longshot, but I can check next time I’m in the area and see if he has any. If he does, they’d probably be in the $8 range.

WOW heck yes :wow!: I appreciate the offer. Yes these two are the ones I’m looking for. If you see any other Chase Elliott or Kyle Busch boxed 1/64’s please lmk? $8.00 is much more reasonable. Thank you again I appreciate your time to help me :twothumbsup: Thank you very much!!!

No problem, if there’s others you’re after, send me a list when you get a chance. It may be a week or two before I can get over there, but I’ll see what he’s got.

If you would happen to find another Hooters car, I'd be game for it as well. Got the truck, just missing the car. I appreciate your efforts!

Hey guys, just wanted to let you know, I went by the store today, and his 1/64 section was nearly wiped out. No Kyle Busch or Chase Elliott cars at all. I dunno if he sold a bunch on eBay or clearanced a bunch since my last visit. I was gonna ask but he wasn’t there, his daughter was watching the store.
