Question Anyone else collect diecast cars?

I save the big $ for my real cars, but I do collect diecast muscle cars, classics, sports cars & exotics. Mostly diecasts of real cars with the exception of my Super Mario cars & Fast & Furious cars.

FYI, selling/trading the cars in the attached photos if you know anyone

I used to but made the mistake of letting my 3 yr old son (at the Time) play with them. Only car I kept off limits was a limited edition ‘87 GNX

I don’t “collect” like i think you guys do, but i do go to extremes to get a die cast model of each one of my real cars, so that they all have their own mini-me.

All were raced by Allan Moffat and all are signed by him.

You guys need to check out my thread...

Toy models of our cars... 1:43, 1:87 and 1:18...
https://www.1addicts.com/forums/showthread.php?t=507986


Some of us are really obsessed with model car collecting. I know Diamondblackcars & bmw1racer can attest to that! We all need a twelve step program for our obsession.

The black 850R is worth around $300. The Super Touring one around $200.

Here’s the diecast edition of my current fleet. The only differences are that my real GT3 is not an RS and the Macan isn’t white, it’s PTS ultraviolet. Our previous Macan Turbo was white, though.

It’s impossible getting exactly your car every time! If anyone knows where i can get a 1:18 Mini Cooper R56 JCW GP in Thunder Gray i’d appreciate any leads. That’s the one model i’m missing

I should know if there is one as I have been collecting MINI models since the lauch of the MINI, I new that there was an RC (Radio Control) model which is not what you really want but it is very nice.

I don't collect 1:18th scale models as a rule so that is why I don't know the answer straight away as I prefer to collect 1:43rd scale models.

There is also a 1:14 scale RC model #96868 Carisma M14 Mini Cooper JCW GP




I had a funny feeling before I started looking that this was as close as you get to a JCW GP
