Willkommen, Bienvenue, Welcome to the new Suncoast Diecasters blog-format website thingy! Same great club, brand-new packaging. You’ll get the monthly meeting Gallery updates not only in a much more timely manner, but you can receive them automatically via subscription and/or Twitter feed. And you can now see my delightfully witty photo captions, without special browser coding. Also, you’ll be able to comment directly on each update. Current members, please read the special message; then check the Calendar for a special shopping event!
You’ll see this new site grow dynamically as I replicate pages from the original site (which you can still visit, by the way, as so clearly indicated in the left-hand column). Now, please scroll down and enjoy our new site’s first official post!
Tom shopped and shopped and shopped and shopped. And shopped.
Ironically — considering Tom is Suncoast Diecasters‘ VW viscount — his favorite is this h’yar Custom Fleetside.
Bill gathers more great variations, including France-made GMC Motorhome and Cargo Lift, and a rare Red-line Show Hoss II.
No way I could not attempt a lifted-body shot…
Mike C. demonstrates how to buy one thing yet magically increase his collection by five things.
Mike recycles a Maisto AllStars flatbed…
It’s very embarrassing that a big-name company such as Mattel could let this get into the market with the word “pack” so clearly mis-spelled.
Mike’s doctor told him to take two of these with water before every– Oh, track joiners! Sorry about that. I completely misunderstood.
Some certain member of Suncoast Diecasters had a birthday. Some other certain member RAOK’d member, the former, with this incredibly thoughtful gift. (And it’s even the right color!)
A new member had this amongst his offerings. I asked his price, and found it acceptable. So now I finally have one!
Ken picked up several new treasures, including this MOC Tootsietoy. The two white “76” vehicles in this photo seem identical; the difference being that one has a “bar”-like shape across its base. Yet, this particular mark is not listed in any of the books. So, either the books are in error, or that mark is a figment of Ken’s imagination.
More of Ken’s treasures, including, yes, for our first official post of our new blog … a garbage truck!
The coolest item by far which Ken got at our May ’13 meeting was this Firebird Funny Car, by Zee (Zylmex). Paint looks good; body shell stays up (some don’t, which means “rigging” is necessary for photos), and the “whizz wheel” ridges will certainly make for a fast ride … Not that Ken actually plays with his cars, ya’know,,,,
Well, thus is Suncoast Diecasters‘ first post of our new blog. I hope you enjoyed reading it as much as I enjoyed typing it. Please subscribe to our e-mail updates (and/or Twitter feed). See you at the July meeting!
