Got a bunch of cars at the Flea Market today. The big yellow one was $2, but the others were about half 25 cents and half $1.

I couldn't believe I found the first blue truck cab in someone's random car jumble. Is is missing the cement truck drum off the back, but it is still a vintage 1970 red line Hot Wheels and is worth more than the 25 cents it cost me. The super deformed little red Lancia Stratos next to that is a pullback car from the same series as the SD Porsche 911 I've had since I was a kid. Below those are a dark green and another red Stratos. The next 4 are all ridiculously distorted cars. The Maroon is a flattened Chevy Nomad, the blue is more or less a tall Skyline with huge wheels, and the white is a distorted Jackrabbit Special. The large yellow one is Tom Daniel's Ice T design and is really detailed with rubber wheels.

3 dune buggies, 2 Ferrari racers, a Ferrari 308 targa, a 308 GTB, an Alfa Romeo Carabo, and an old Hi-Raker Corvette split window.

Damn, I can't seem to find that Skyline.

I did pick up two of the red 510's. They were just sitting right next to each other in Yoy's R US. :P

I'll get it eventually.

Found a pretty sweet Motorola MicroTAC 550. Phones sure have come a long way..

To follow up on my South Park find. This is a Wave 3 Special screening VHS and cartman notepad. There is no print or writing or barcode so I'm not sure what this is or if it has collector value. Maybe a giveaway? If someone here knows, chime in.

its possible that its a giveaway from the studio to a potential academy award/goldenglobe/oscar voter.

it probably said 'for your consideration'

Stuff like this is given all the time to those people. I see stuff similar to this sometimes.

And what do you do when you dont want it? you donate it to a thrift store, sell it to a pawn shop and other stuff.

Its one of those things that may or maynot be worth anything in a few years.

Only time and demand will tell.

Looks like a promo that was sent to a video store in order to get them excited and convince them to order tons of copies to sell in their store. We got them at the store I worked at. The 2 coolest ones were Gungrave and Night Watch. Still have the Gungrave box and t-shirt and I have the complete Night Watch box.

Came with 2 glowsticks, LED flashlight and batteries, plastic shotglass, light/dark card, metropass card, t-shirt, poster, metro poster, sticker, and a letter and card with street dates for the DVD on it.

The 1st Saturday of the month is a storewide 50% off sale at Goodwill.

This month I got a 40" Sony Internet TV: here is the specs; http://www.amazon.com/Sony-NSX-40GT1-40 ... B004BB4VVI

It retails for $599. Goodwill price was $449. I'm also a rewards member and I get 10% off anything $20 or more.

So I walked out the door with it for $214.
