SO, I ended up in a second hand store and they had all these diecasts. When the guy told me they were 1/2 price I may have gotten a bit crazy. Any of you have better resources than I to tell me if I found anything fantastic?
Mark Martin #6 2000 Ford Taurus (Eagle One paint sceme) limited edition one of 20004 in box with certificate, styrofoam and tissue paper 1:24 scale
Mark Martin #6 2000 Ford Taurus (Valvoline/ Zerex paint sceme) limited edition one of 20016 in box with certificate, styrofoam and tissue paper 1:24 scale

Tony Stewart #20 1998 or 99 (box says 99 styrofoam liner says 98) Pontiac (Home Depot/ Habitat for Humanity paint) one of 10008 in box with styrofoam. box is 'sleeved' 1:18 scale
Bobby Hamilton #43 Pontiac (STP paint) Richard Petty STP 25th anniversary in display type box -has 'viewing window' it is on a base. 1:18 scale not much info on the box and I'm not opening it.
Ricky Rudd #10 Thunderbird (Tide paint) in display type box -has 'viewing window' it is on a base. 1:18 scale not much info on the box and I'm not opening it.
If you know anything about these "toys" I would love the info. .
One Danica Patrick will be racing a few times in ARCA and the Nationwide series in 2010.
So will she go the way of Tony Stewart and be successful or will she be added to the evergrowing pile of open-wheelers that struggled instead (Hornish, AJ, Montoya, Franchitti, Speed...have I missed anyone?)?
While I am one of her biggest detractors (three years with a top team and a return of that solitary win in Japan just doesn't cut it in my book), at least she isn't jumping straight into the Cup series. We shall just have to wait and see how it pans out since who knows, she might produce an impressively consistant season like she did in Indycar this year...
One poster on Scenedaily says she won't, even going so far as taking bets (money raised goes to charities) over whether Danica in JR equipment will be able to beat John Wes Townley in RCR stuff.
