Pardon my ignorance, but is your little find there based on an actual vintage BMW race car? Nice little pick up anyway!

Yep - sure is! :D As a kid, I remember reading a book showing a photo of one of these BMW racecars, and thinking to myself, it would be cool to either have a HW, Matchbox or model version of this - and decades later, my wish comes true!!!!

The hunt officially begins for 3 yellow submarines, I think this is going to be a hard one to find.

Ur custom looks great!
Everybody can relax, DarkArtist found the car!

thanks guys... I had fun making this one.. took awhile to dremel out the rivet holding the car together but it was worth it. I posted this on both my twitter feed and Instragram account and had lots of likes as well. hopefully by next week I should have pics of my Ghostbusters Video Game version of Ecto 1 and perhaps pics of the Ecto-Funny Car.

almost finished with my Ecto 1B (the Video game version of the Ecto-Mobile). need to add the rear light bar and it should be good to go. I'm also working on a more "screen accurate" version of the 1A and a before Ecto-1 from the reboot in addition to the Funny Car version and all new Design for a mobile Ecto Lab and a custom for a friend of mine that runs GBNJ.net. my workbench is Ecto-Town USA lol.

I'm thinking of making a few of the 1984 pre-Ecto 1 cars for sale (a friend of mine expressed interest in trying to sell them for me on eBay or online)

Finally finished up 3 more custom Ecto 1 vehicles:

first up my custom 1:64th Ecto 1 from the Ghostbusters Video Game (Ecto 1B)





next my custom Ecto 1 Funny Car (this one was cool and used the decal from the Real Ghostbusters Ecto 1) added the slime for additional details






Finally my last one (for now at least) is a custom Ecto 1 I did for a friend of mine that has a local Ghostbusters fan club in the area www.gbnj,net

Annoyingly, my Walmart, i.e. the one conveniently within walking distance, doesn't stock the 1016 Ecto-1 and Ecto-2 (motorcycle) two-pack, only the 80s Ecto-1 and Ecto-1A two-pack. I kinda want the '16 Ecto-1. Bleh. Not even the Target here in Garner has it. EBay's got it, of course, for quite a bit more than I'm willing to pay, especially for a vehicle I don't want included in the deal (Ecto-2; I'm not a motorcycle guy).

On the lookout for the Zamac batmobile, could use some help if anyone finds an extra. My local Walmart just stocked no less than 6 cases of the F case:(

Seen a dark blue Batman tumbler around in the basic line, very tempting but I think I'll stick with the black one for now.

Yeah, I recently got lucky via a local indy toy store - got all the 1:50 Bat vehicles I'm after now. :)

In recent news, I found the Beatles 'Yellow Submarine' in the small basic line - HOW COOL IS THAT!!!

Needless to say I grabbed it - pity I couldn't find a second, but I had no idea it was even being made.

I've found 1 single one, only because the card was destroyed so I guess the scalpers couldn't use it

Yeah I found one a week ago, so it's out. It's very neat.
Yeah I found one the week too, per my previous posts.. I just got no response till I asked about it specifically, that's all.

It's probably going to be as scarce as the 2007 collection Ecto-1 out here, I bet. :hmm:

Walmart must have gotten a pallet of Hot Wheels in last night, when I stopped by on Friday, the circular metal dumpbin was half empty, and the pegs had a handful hanging. Stopped by today, the bin was full & the pegs were stuffed. I counted 5 KITTS & 6 of each Warthog & F7 Charger laying around the top of the bin. I didn't have time to thoroughly search, but I didn't see a Yellow Submarine

Mine restocked with KITTs as well. I picked up the F7 Charger, and The Jetsons car. I'll grab a Warthog sometime I'm sure.

The Jetsons car is kinda lame with the wheels and all, but it's still alot if fun for under a buck.
