I have a bunch of 1:18 scale autoart stuff that I haven't unpacked after our last 2 moves. I love diecasts but for the cost of a good one I can buy something nice for my actual car.

I have a few NASCAR diecasts that I've gotten through the years, but nothing too recent. Need to get back into it...

No kidding. The nicer 1:18 and 1:24 stuff is around $100 :rofl:

Got em displayed or stored away? What u gonna do with em
I’m looking at some 1:18 and 1:24 and a smattering of Hot Wheels cars as I type this. I’ve had a few offers but I haven’t taken any of them. I’d sell them if I got enough. Most of the Hot Wheels I haven’t looked at or unboxed for at least ten years. They are are in USPS shipping boxes that fit About 150 each. I have like 20 of them.

Collect anything specific ? Or like complete sets?

Ive been active in some fb hotwheel groups and its pretty common to see whole collections bought/sold

I have the entire Treasure Hunt series from 95, 96 and 97. I have a Batmobile collection old and new. The old ones are packed away. Mostly I collect actual cars. Not the goofy ones Mattel makes up. I do have some box sets from the 90’s. I got the Larry Wood 50th anniversary book from 2018 that’s in the light blue Hot Wheels case, from my son.

I gave all my hot wheels style cars to my nephew. Anything 1\64 basically.

Nascar, street cars, tractor trailers. Lots of stuff.

I still have all my 1/24 nascar diecast. I started when i went to my first nascar race in the mid 90s and quit about 10 years ago or so. Basically when they surpassed $60 each. I have a display case for them. But it isn't set up. They are in their boxes in the closet for now. I have more than 50 but less than 100.

I know a guy who buys 1/64 cars and converts them in to stock cars of whatever era the car is. Mainly 70s and older I believe.

Some pics of the hundreds he has on facebook
