I rarely buy merch these days. I haven’t bought a 1:24 die cast since 2015 or 16. This ‘17 Blaney car was $45- which is over my $30 limit, but I didn’t have a Wood Brothers Blaney car. Y’all, compared to the Revell and Racing Champions of my youth, the quality on these things is fantastic. But y’all, compared to the die casts of ten years ago? These new Lionel cars are junk. Not worth the price. I pre-ordered a ‘18 Blaney car and that’s probably the last modern die cast I’ll buy.

Moving on- I finally grabbed one of these Jack Ingram reprints from EBay and I am tickled to add it to the collection. Ingram’s schemes are among my favorite in Grand National Racing. Those were some tough looking race cars.
