I have just met two of you guys in the last month and I know there are more of you out there. We can save some shipping costs, and wasted time going to stores someone just checked. I hit stores from the Eastern Panhandle of West VA(where I live) to Central MD(where I work). I make a trip out to the Eastern Shore every few weeks and hit the stores along the way too. Post in here an area shopping report so we can all save some time…

Going to start hunting for metallic Nigel Gearsley, Francesco's crew chief, and Jeff's crew chief.  Going to hit a Kmart tonight and maybe a TRU tomorrow.  If any of you other guys find anything cool, let me know.

I know Finn McMissiles are pretty neat, my stores have a ton. If you need any of those, my Wal-Mart has plenty of them! Laugh

Picked up another Fillmore w/ headphones at Kmart in Winchester, VA.  No Carlas left… No metallic Nigel Gearsley at TRU either.  I left all the Finns for someone else too!Wink

Well, BobbyJack and I have been driving up and down it the last 3 days but it is safe to say that the I-81 corridor from Hagerstown, MD, through Martinsburg, WV, to Winchester, VA is totally devoid of all forms of metallic Nigel Gearsley, Carla's Crew Chief, Pinion Tanaka, Sal Machiani, and Security Guard Finn.  Luckily we have been able to trade for all of the above except metallic Nigel.  I like still having an excuse to visit TRU.Laugh  Kingpins, Tylers, Freds, and Fillmore w/ headphones are still available.  Went to the post office today to pick up a package from Lovemini.  After leaving we decided to check out a tip about 75% off on Cars 2 items and found this…

Sweet!  We needed it for our collection too, because we were new traders and traded all of them away that we had to build our collection.Wink

Hit Hagerstown, MD and Winchester, VA the last two days and all I found was the Denise Beam 4 pack in Winchester.  The one next to Walmart, Kmart, and TRU.

I know there are more of you guys out there.  The new cars in the stores seem to dissapear as soon as they go up on the pegs.  It is easier to find these cars if more of us start working together.Laugh

I hit the same Germantown Target and Walmart because I work near them.  Same with the Gaithersburg TRU.  I go out to the Eastern shore about once or twice a month, and hit Columbia and Annapolis TRUs if I have time.  Send me a PM with your cell phone info and I will include you on the tips I send Tom.  He has saved me quite a bit of wasted time and gas.
