I've seen these on Ebay from time to time. Our local Wallwort droce the only other toy carrying competition (Toy Works/Kaybee) out of town and then quit carrying toys! Go figure.:mad:

I love those kind of cars. Just great stuff for that "out behind the barn" scene. I've used plastic but the For Sale products are much better.





A new Wall-to-wall Mart is opening up about 10K from our place. It covers acres of previously productive farm land so they might find room for a few of these. :rolleyes:

I recall seeing those at a WalMart at full price. If I see them on closeout I'll pick them up for my garage scenes. I have bought dozens of cars at WalMart on red tag closeouts. They will drop the cars as low as $3 after Christmas. I still find cars in the closeout aisles all the time, but they range from $5 to $15. I let my daughter play with them a few months and they turn into wrecks, so I don't mind putting them outside at that point. ;-)

Quick web search shows a number of Jada Toys' "For Sale" line of cars in 1:24... LINK Best, TJ


Appreciate the link:

Those are GREAT detail products.  And the price is right, too.

You actually should check at Menards. Every Christmas they have these 1/24th "oldie" cars. I picked up a "Mayberry Sheriff" car and several cool pickups, etc. for about $8 each. Just check the toy area.
