A little off topic but a like new set of Ideal Motorific. set I have this boxed set in my basement but not all separated by the original cardboard though. Got this set at Christmas in 1967 and had to replace it a few years ago. Has the car I had back then too. Not sure it will sell at the selling price...

Failed to sell at $240 opener. I like it, but not for that
crazy price.

That garage is way cool: looks like a car cathedral.

They try hard for top dollar, Ben. Such as this auction with incredibly insane asking price.

I love this hopper but not for $36 plus shipping. But it was fair because it bid up to that price...

Someone will probably buy the Trump pieces... I don't vote. I can't waste my time dabbling in such meaningless activities.

Please tell me why someone would buy this let alone the price he is asking...

Considering Trumps handling of the COVID 19 crisis, these cars will come in handy. The boxcar can carry coffins, the covered hopper can carry cremated ashes, and the reefer can hold the unburried dead.
