    Retro I Have An Addiction

    I Have An Addiction
    i have had the odd few diecast models for years but started collecting Hot Wheels & matchbox
    about six months ago, now have over 400, i think i have a problem
    i only buy the cars i like, not into all the fantasy models
    i get a buzz when i find a Treasure Hunt Or Super Treasure Hunt, Real Riders or
    in most cases a car that is very hard to find.
    i get a lot from charity shops but cant walk past a
    super market or toy shop without looking for them, was shocked to find
    how many adults collect them around the world
    the last time i had hot wheels & matchbox was when i was about 9 years old, thats 40 years ago.
    i have a few from the 70's & 80's loose
    the ones on packaging on the wall will eventually be cracked open to go into display racks on the wall.
    will also be modding a few with new paint & wheel swaps

    That's fantastic WoB. How is your other half taking it?

    I'm not really in to starting a collection but if they're worth something then I would definitely be up for searching for them in some charity shops to sell on.

    What should I be looking for when buying?

    liking the Delorean
    You know he grew up as a little shitspark from the old shitflint and then he turned into a shitbonfire and driven by the winds of his monumental ignorance he turned into a raging shitfirestorm. If I get to be married to Barb I'll have total control of Sunnyvale and then I can unleash the shitnami tidal wave that will engulf Ricky and extinguish his shitflames forever. And with any luck he'll drown in the undershit of that wave. Shitwaves.

    she fine with it as long as they stay in the cave, its not the sort of thing thats worth loads of money, ones to
    watch out for are Treasure hunts & super Treasure hunts.
    if you can find the original sweet sixteen cars from 1968 now they are worth a fortune in good condition.


    This VW in mint Condition sold last year for over 100K

    That's dedication, love it.

    We should start a collectables thread, as a teenager I had a collection of stiff socks stuffed under my bed.
