Original Post

Welcome!  These guys are great!  In fact, my package of 6 or so 1:43 cars arrived last night, and I'll be posting pics when we finally get some sun.  I'm very pleased with the detail and quality -- and I tend to buy the low-end models.

The turnaround time for shipping is amazing, the selection is great across a wide variety of price points, the phone support is excellent, and Diecastdirect.com has a great, nicely organized paper catalog, which I save and use as a reference. (I'm getting back into car cartooning.)

You can also pick up some RR people and other scale accessories while shopping for that must have truck, bus, or auto. Periodic sales help the train budget as well.

The only caution is that I ran into software glitches with their new revamped website trying to order on an iPad and gave up.  Switching to my laptop solved that problem, and as I said, my order arrived in record time and the items are always well packed.

Glad to be able to spread the word about a great sponsor.

1 60 Chevy Impala.

When I was a kid my Dad had a 59 Chevy Impala and than sold it to my brother two years later. I learned how to drive in this car. This new item will be on my bucket list.

Well I was able to get the website operating tonight, bought 4 cars, national lampoon's vacation wagon, blues Brothers police car, snowmobile from BTF, and the infamous Godfather Catty Whack.  Now I must find the figures. the Godfather one is easy, layf on the ground in a pool of red paint. 

I know where I have been, I know where I am at, I am hopeful I know where I am going.(The devil and God are talking it over).
