Got the silver one a while back & found the yellow one a couple of days ago at Walmart.

Thumbs up

I hear you about staying off ebay. I bid on these but lost: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...MEDW%3AIT&rd=1
I thought about going 250, but thought I'd better not. (Wife) You talk about adding to our collection, this one would be SWEET!!

Also I have about every L out today. I have yet to fine any black matchboxs (except ebay). I have bought most of my Matchbox from Wal-mart, Target, and Miejers, and my Bburago from hobby stores. One day I post up my collection as you have.

Oops, I did not mean for that to happen. (you buying MORE) LOL
I have two or more of each truck that I have. One to display outside the box, one in the box, and one in a storage box. (I have no earthly idea what I'll do with them all IF I ever sell my L) Heck I even had two of my friends paint red model ones DSG to match my truck. One is on a wooden clock stand, the other in the box.

My wife and I ask when they normally restock the shelfs, and we go very early to look. Heck, I found two white ones at about 6pm the other night in Nicholasvillie, Ky
