Diecast car collection

Happy Friday Everyone!

Just wondering who has a diecast collection?

Perhaps you could post pics of your collection or any favorites. Here's mine so far.

I have a large diecast NASCAR collection from back when I was into NASCAR. Also a bunch of the diescasts and toy trucks from gas stations when they use to see them around Christmas. Unfortunately, it is all boxed up and would take to much time to unpack to take pictures of. Also, I am starting to feel very lazy now that the weekend is here :-)

I should look to see what I have and maybe sell and get rid of it.

You have a cool collection though.

I have a collection, nothing crazy big though. Things have slowed down since getting married... "you spent how much on a toy car?!"

Would be interested to hear what each of your favorite cars are in the collection. Mine would probably be the CMC Mercedes McLaren SLR, beautiful model!

I would never tell the wife what I spend on this hobby

My favorite is the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta and I am currently waiting for delivery of the Ferrari 250 California Spider (as seen in Ferris Bueller's Day Off)

I have added about a dozen more since "I stopped collecting", but it is over 1200 and they are all BMWs (Oh no - alternate fact - I have six Jeff Gordon Nascar models)

This is about 2/3 of my collection. There are other shelves with cars in the room and there are a number for them on the sill of the Bay Window. The cars were on display in my office in Manhattan until I sold the company a few years ago. I had to put the cars in storage as there was no room for them in my Manhattan apartment.

Now that I have a home in Connecticut I had shelves built for the collection and put them back on display.

My favorites are the #24, #25 and #42 BMW "Batmobiles" that are signed by Sam Posey.

Hahaha! It took a lot of justification to get SA (spousal approval) for my latest acquisition:



I paid $350 on eBay, which I thought was a bargain, but that was the absolute highest price, including shipping, that I was going to pay.

This is the bookend to the other BMW Art Car that I have, the E92 M3 GT2 car by Jeff Koons, which I think I paid less than $200. Other Art Cars are going on eBay for prices up to $1,000.

More pictures of my "collection", mostly various scales of cars that I've owned, next week when I have more time.

Very nice, I would love to add the Hot Wheels Elite Ferrari 250 GT Berlinetta to my collection.

Here's a picture of the wife approved display case (located off the living room):


Top Shelf (all AutoArt):


Middle Shelf (F430 is BBR, the rest are Hot Wheels Elite):


Bottom Shelf (SLR is CMC, the rest are AutoArt):


I have quite a bit more (some stored below the display cabinet), just nowhere to put them I have a Kyosho E92 M3, E60 M5, and E63 M6 that I would love to display. I wish Kyosho would make the F82, no quality ones out yet...

Nice, but aren't you worried about door dings?
