  • With no new Cars to buy in stores, what have you been spending your Cars money on?

    We know this has been the longest and most severe Cars lull that most of us can remember... there's been next to nothing new in stores in the US, and very few new items in stores in the UK...

    So my question is "What have you been spending your Cars money on?"

    I bought:
    A suit
    New black dress shoes
    New glasses and contact lenses
    Cars from overseas friends who did happen to find them
    Scrapbooking and 31 stuff for my wife
    A flash attachment for one of my digital cameras
    I got my puppy, Holley, spayed
    The PixarCarsDiecast.com website (along with MrBrownstone)

    What have you bought if you couldn't buy Cars? And yes, I'd have rather bought Cars...

    Haha, this is a good one. I've bought:

    2 Thermarests
    Sleeping Bag
    Footprint for the tent
    Knife
    Backpack for Elliott (anyone catching the theme here?)
    A sweet vintage rocking chair
    New tires
    Lots of Toy Story Buddy Packs (feeding my collecting addiction)
    And more...

    Thanks for helping me look at the bright side, Chris!

        I have used the money I would spend on Cars to buy:
        Ninjago/Star Wars and Castle Lego
        Transformers
        Lightsabers
        repairs to the garage...
        I realize I have not been saving any money...lol

              We have been buying Monster Jam Trucks, Transformers, and Star Wars toys. Since we saw The Phantom Menace in 3D back in Feburary, my son now wants to grow up to be a Jedi.

                  Putting money into an ISA instead of the mortgage - ISA earns 3.5% interest and mortgage is only on 2.5% at the moment

                            That's the good side of this lull, eating Victor Hugo's wouldn't be half as fun as those!

                              Ive been buying quite a few of the cars 1 items I missed, only a handful of items to go now and of course saving for my holiday next month in the USA. Oh and yes I fly out and land on June the 15th, planned it very well of course, next morning is kmart day 8 and im 5 mins from my nearest one and I would love to buy all the UK collectors a set of kmart day 8 and bring them back for you but I think customs may have something to say, although I could get as many as possible and send them in the post to whoever wants them, just an idea as I will be travelling 1200miles through 7 states and 50 kmarts and various other stores ending in florida for disney world. Private message me if you want some.
                              Also brought visas, insurance, new picture ID driving license.
                              Some hotwheels cars.
