Classic. Love the wheels on this one!
It is really nice. I knew I wanted a Veyron, but not which one. I saw it listed on eBay, put it on the watchlist, and put in a last second bid. I'm glad I did. It's the Veyron I didn't know I wanted. :D
Glad you like it. This is the "Show car" edition, slightly different than the production model from Bugatti.

Well, I received a Hot Wheels Elite 599XX today, but unfortunately, it was broken. The hood and trunk lid were loose in the box, and both of the mirrors were broken. The tie-down wires were not secured. I am of course returning it.

That sucks! Is there a replacement?

Sun Star 1939 Horch 855-SR in what I like to call Midnight Black..
Delivered yesterday and it’s in mint condition, took a polishing cloth to it and it just gleams! Excellent example of a classic Roadster at a more than reasonable price... at less than $75 love it when a bargain comes my way.
Perfect mate to my White Maisto Mercedes Benz 500K .

Not from that seller, but there are others out there. At least the seller has been very kind and understanding.

It shouldn't be too hard to find another.

Easier said then done when using a Mac, most sites are now able to process my photos when i reduce the size below 150 Kbs which is easier than messing around with most photo editing programs I’ve seen.

There are free online editors to resize images and then find a host site to store and share your photos.

Flickr works good. 1000 Photo uploads for free and no need to resize before upload.

I use imgbb.com. You don't need an account. You just upload, then copy and paste the link. You can choose a thumbnail or full size.

Question, and kind of off-topic: Do you know where one might find miscellaneous parts for the Hot Wheels 599XX? The seller received the return and issued the refund, but he messaged me this morning, saying the model is missing one of the trunk locks. I searched for it, but didn't find it, and have no idea what happened to it. I want to help him if I can.

Any ideas?

I really, really like to read what you think of the LCD Mclaren. Lots of biased opinions going round about LCD models, mostly because of the fact it's metal vs AA composite. Your review will no doubt be honest!
