    I used to when I was a kid! I've got a pretty decent collection! :D


    I pick up a new one every now and then! My last purchase was a 1:24 Nissan Skyline GT-R R34 for $5 at the swap meet a few months ago! :D

    Man, I still have cases of Hot Wheels from when I started collecting about 8 years ago. I've been sober for about 3 years now, but I still fall off the wagon every now and again collecting die cast Corvettes.

    Cool collection, I just have NASCAR die casts, always stuck with the 1/64 stuff cause I used to move alot and they take up less room. Then I got remarried and they all ended up in the attic. Least you still got yours out.

    My Son collects those type. The bigger ones.

    I gave him my collection of matchbox cars from the late 60's & 70's. I have a few from England that are in (Match) boxes. They are mint, never opened. I have some Hess trucks in the box, never opened.

    Where do you get 'em?

    I've been wanting to find diecasts of previous cars we've owned over the years. Now granted, I haven't been searching ...when I go into hobby shops & such, I look but never see what I'm looking for.

    I'd love to get a 1971 Demon 340 in the Hemi Orange for my husband. He used to own one years ago.

    And the other vehicles we've owned. To me, that'd be a neat collection to have.
