I bought my son the complete line of JP cars and grabbed me a few of the odd vehicles. I am getting back into collecting cars and will have to add to the thread!

Got the Swamp Commander today. Very disappointed the wheels don't fold down so it can drive on land like the card artwork shows. :(

'33 Plymouth PC Sedan. I hope they do this thing in black some day. :)

I hope they release the G 550 for the Mercedes anniversary line soon. It's the only one I haven't seen yet.

I currently have my eye on a Unimog U 300 on eBay (not the Mercedes anniversary one, though; not a National Parks collector, TBH).

The other Mercedes CLS500 (which I ordered off of eBay) came in the mail. It's currently sitting on the Flatbed King's flatbed. And I got the International Armored Car last night. Almost got another gray Tesla Model S, but changed my mind.

Swung by Target today to see if they had any Gamorreans. They didn't, so I got another Jeep #12 and Jeep #18 because hey, why not?

Naw, they did a licensed Royal Canadian Mounted Police squad car. They did a German fire truck and a Spanish (?) ambulance as well. :D
