sweet. i don't have the autoarts yet but the actions. i bought the actions because they were so rare. which do you think will go up in value more. the auto arts are definitely nicer. :feedback :feedback :feedback :feedback :feedback :feedback :goodpost :goodpost :goodpost :goodpost :goodpost :goodpost :goodpost :goodpost

Albeit the Action C5R's lack details and quality of the AUTOart, they do maintain their value based on some auctions I have seen on eBay.

The chrome Earnhardt #3 still fetches $300+, which happens to be one of the least expensive auctions I have seen one end at.

I think the market is fickle when comparing these two brands of the same model. personally, I prefer the AUTOart versions over the Action version by a long shot, however, I do not see the price crashing on the Actions.

I do believe that the 2003 #50 & #53 cars by AUTOart will be the preference of collectors if given the choice over Action's Minichamps versions. Atleast that is what I chose :lol

Beautiful model/photos Johnny. I've always wanted a C5R but never got around to getting one since many other models were higher up on the list for me. I love the color on this one so this might be it for me. Your photos are making a strong case for it. Thanks. :cheers
