I found a store during my road trip with the family through California with some diecast. They had a lot of early 90s diecast there including Racing Champions and White Rose with some Pit Row and others mixed in. I found a few Harry Gant items I didn’t have yet and selected a few others that I liked. They were very inexpensive. The Allison transporter is an early Racing Champions with rubber tires on the car for $5. The 1/43 cars were $3 each, 1/64 in packages were $2 and loose 1/64 were $1. The Cale Yarborough package is autographed too. Good score for a guy who likes this older stuff.

Nice haul. I believe I see Days of Thunder cars that came from Hardees (in the plastic bags) and Exxon (on the hard cards). Those 1/43 cars never were very popular. There was a Dollar store in Louisiana I used to go to long ago. I bet they had 75 1/43 cars on the shelf for years and couldn't sell them.

I had heard about the Hardees DOT cars but never seen them before. Not common on the West coast.

Love the Kodiak car. It's hard to tell from the picture, but it looks to me like someone used the Ertl Monte Carlo Aerocoupe casting to make a custom of Rusty Wallace's 1987 #27 Pontiac Grand Prix 2+2.
There were several of these Ertl cars that appeared to be custom in this collection. I believe these were distributed by SCM where you had to assemble them and apply the decals. I purchased a couple of the unbuilt SCM cars as well. You can see them in the plastic bags with decals in my photo.

Oh yeah, now that you mention it, while I do have several of those SCM kits, I don't have any with that body style. I do know they at least made a Richard Petty Pontiac 2+2, so it makes sense that this is another one of those.
