When I was a kid, I had a huge collection of Hot Wheels cars. Somewhere over the years, I lost many of them but while recently cleaning up the old drawers came across a few of them still in pretty good condition. Here are the pictures of them some Hotwheels, some non Hotwheels.

I also chanced upon an old Premier President scale model in my collection, that requires restoration! , will put up pictures of it soon.

A Bugatti most probably, this one is from my Hot Wheels collection

A dump truck, complete with a tilting dumper

A garbage truck. It previously had a detailed garbage recycling unit on its back, but its now lost unfortunately.

A Hino fire engine. I received it as a gift from someone who had gone to singapore. It's quite detailed and the ladder extends upto 15cms!

Another car from my Hot Wheels collection. It was my first "restoration" project when I was doing my engineering! At that time, I had hand painted it, though now I would still like to spray paint it this time properly

Hey guys! Here's my first post in this thread: a black 1:43 Lamborghini Countach 5000S by Bburago. Actually, this is my first scale model. I'm a newbie to this scene, so I hope I can learn a lot more about collecting scale models from the pros here . I've already started to save up for a 1:18 Miura !

You were on a shopping spree, I can understand your situation . So far in this month I have spent about 50 and this just the start of the month. I need some help.

These are from the good old days, back when they all came with metal bases... and you could tell with one look how well it was manufactured... Hot Wheels still has some nice designs and real-life vehicles, but the quality has gone down a bit (noticeable immediately with the weight). I have some old Corgi, Hotwheels, Majorette & Matchbox vehicles, will have to browse my collection for the location and take a few pictures.

well, as of now, the only Lp640s you will get in bbay are he Maistos. and they are not very well detailed. where in bbay are you?

Would you like this one? I was thinking of selling mine.

Otherwise, you could always get one of those stock yellow/white/orange ones from most malls.

Whoops. My bad. Read it as LP640. Sadly, the 670 is not available anywhere in India.
