Mrs. 'Ski had $20 in Kohl's cash and a 30% coupon and dragged me there today.

I'm glad that she did - she could not find anything that she wanted so she gave them to me.

I picked up this Hallmark Keepsake 1966 Dodge A-100 truck  (looks to be 1:50). The price was $19.95, so I got it for free.

If it was red could be a candidate for the Hemi powered "Little Red Wagon."

John, you've started a run on Hallmark keepsake vehicles! LoL Thanks for posting that, I ran out and grabbed the Dodge A-100, and next to it at the Hallmark store (no Kohls near me) there was a 1971 Pontiac GTO (Goat) Judge. I had a 1971 custom ordered GTO, except it was Gold in color, and loved that car! (GTO = Gas, Tires, and Oil by the way). I'm going to have to do something about that hook in the roof of the Goat! Same price at Hallmark store as Kohls.

I saw the Goat and the fire truck.  I thought they were all a little small but thought I could make the A-100 work because it's a quirky vehicle but passed on the GTO.

Checking the tailpipe, while the onlooker checks out the "GTO!"



Gas Station 3

Paul, seems you and I have similar tastes in cars and service stations! In the following photo is a 60 ragtop Chevy Corvette and at the pumps is a 1971 Pontiac GTO Judge at Ethyl's Gas Station. Guy on the floor under the Vette seems to be doing a little TIG/MIG or Arc welding.

Note: Yes that is a hook on the roof of the Goat, it's a Hallmark Keepsake ornament.

western...realistic scene!  Can't go wrong with the '50s, '60s, and early '70s GM cars!  The Vette and GTO remain on my list of favorites  Seeing your welder reminds me that I need to install my blue-flame guy.  Great addition to any layout.  It's just that I have such a disdain for wiring these days that I put as much off it off as possible, just as long as the trains are able to run on schedule...
