Yep. Only one one side though? I think they are threaded, but haven't messed with it much. I think it's a bit older, and was meant for off road use. No DOT stamp like others I have seen.

The silver DB5 with the Bond logo on the card? There's also a red version and a green version.

I wanted the dark red one.
Silver would be better.

The hunt continues.

The lotus is going to sit on my desk at work, next to a 250GTO

Jag, the walmart hot wheels bins here are groaning with red DB5s, if you can't find one by the 22nd let me know and I'll bring one for you to NY. It's weird how regional hotwheels are sometimes - we hardly got the green DB5 at all (it was a 2013 model) and I haven't seen a silver one, yesterday I spotted my first VW surf van which is just an off the shelf regular model (not even the super treasure hunt spectraflame edition).

On my desk right now are:
Datsun 510 wagon
dastun 510 coupe
bmw 2002 tii
Skyline GTR (1970's)
Porsche 911 RSR (aircooled)
1967 plymouth GTX
1963 ford Galaxie
1967 Buick GS
1967 Pontiac GTO
1961 Jaguar E-type (Matchbox Lesney edition unopened)
1967 Mustang Fastback (Revell Bulitt Edition still in bubble pack)
1978 BMW 635 CSI (Bbruago 1:24 scale)
1991 BMW 535i (Schabak 1:24 scale)
1979 Ducati Hailwood replica
2006 Ducati Paulsmart 1000
1991 BMW 325i (cheap gas station pullback car)
and one Spad S.VII biplane on a stand.

I bought some hobby store hot wheels vertical display cases so it lets me hold a lot more without looking cluttered and I am in the process of making a display case out of an Ikea shadowbox so I can hold more. I had to take the 1970's holden ute (with the motorcycles in the back), the 65 shelby cobra, and the 1970 firebird home because they were loose and I was playing with them annoying my cube mates.

which brings be to what I bought last weekend: an Ikea 8x10 shadow box and enough balsa and basswood to build shelves.

If you were going to the Javits show this weekend I could have handed you one there. Still have my Dinky James Bond DB5 from when I was a kid. It's missing the guy that goes in the ejector seat and one of the red tyre slashers.

I still have my 60's monkee mobile (Corgi). Its missing all the monkees except peter so it's not worth as much.

At one point I had a giant 1969 charger General Lee from when the show was on. It was big because you could put Mego figures into it. I wish I still had that.

Unsure if I will make it down for the javits show. 20% chance I will.

I have a formula one 6 wheeler, and a few other race cars.
