Dayum, i need to find a way to display them without my kid getting in the way... between me and the wife had over 100 she started giving some away, every time we went grocery shopping i would get one or two at least. need to get back on that habit.
That is a nice case and collection you have. Very jealous you were able to find some many in Race colours.
You guys have inspired me to make a run to the local Walmart and Toys R Us to see if I can find the Audi Quattro and the VW GTi.
I buy them and my 3 year old and I race them on her track. I started with my 10 year old and its been passed down to the 3 year old now.
We have a pretty good collection going.I grabbed a few of the old Ferrari 5 packs they sold so we have a pretty good collection of Ferrari's.
I used to collect when i was a kid and still do collect some as an adult. Have box from 1991-1994 that are all unopenned. just picked up a gopro hotwheels for future use when my son is old enough to start playing. Already have a gopro session so it was a no brainer.
Every time we go to Pomona swap meet my son gets about $20 worth. Not to mention what he gets at auto zone. The hit wheels expenditures are f'ing larger then my 401K
Wearing a disguise, and pretending to be someone else?
That goes against all my instincts as a actor...
The Quattros are fairly common to find now, I usually see a ton on the pegs whenever I get a chance to look for some.
Acquired a bit in the past year and a half. It's definitely becoming a problem but at least my GF doesn't seem to mind lol
Mostly Car Cultures on the top shelf
The rest. All of my open ones are duplicates so I have an unopened example of each of the ones I have opened up
One thing I have to say is kind of cool is to have a Matchbox of your car precise in the
1979 Matchbox Targa 911 SC in Guards red with cork interior:
1979 Targa 911 SC in guards red with cork interior, my seats are new:
But never buy Matchboxes of say vintage Rolls Royce’s or Maseratis and try this.
[QUOTE=UncleJB;113269893]First - you still have Toys R Us up there?!?! All of ours have closed in the US I think.
Yeah the Cdn business unit was profitable and split off when the US side went bankrupt.
