that is beautiful...though the most breathtaking of the time I think was the Thunderbird. I want it in a similar blue with the spare at the back. It had really smooth lines for a car at that time. Im really slowly finding myself getting into older cars and often read your posts with much interest. I will attach pics soon. And keep you posted on any new interesting cars I find.

Regards

Nope.
Only the phantom crossair, i picked it up from a lot of hotwheels my sis got for my cousins from USA, i was lucky to have a limited edition in that lot.

The rest of the pieces:

the ford delivery van and the two corvettes, i got from unsold stock in a toys shop. ( thats how you are supposed to get the stuff, ' from unsold stock in a toys shop. ')

as for the buik, i was lucky to buy from the fresh stock, directly from the box, b4 it going into the shelf in the kids section in a super-market.
that overbored rod, also from the same super market. bought it as a token to show what extent hot-rod can be taken to - have a look at the engine ! ! !

yes indeed, a good background and also use macro mode if your cam has it. take a look at the pics i have posted. they are taken in the macro mode (though the pic quality can be further improved if i had worked on it)

Hey Mav.. thanks man I get great joys from looking at them each day... the Cadillac is the biggest model I have... its lovely... I need to add more shelfspace and when doing that I want to do mirrors and halogen lamps to the showcase. Added two more cars to the collection Mercedes 770K and a 170S convertible. Will add pics soon.

Well i have been quite impressed with this thread and have been inspired to collect as well. My first 2 purchases yeasterday..........a white gallardo spyder convertible & a Jeep rescue lime green. 1:18 size....
Just waiting for a right picture before i put them up here. With all your profesional type pics, makes me feel intimidated.

Here is a special edition VW Touareg 1:87.....yup it is really really tiny!!!! But comes in a beautifull box and a lockable base which can be easily detached from the car.

Continental tyres germany gifted it on the soccer world cup this year.
