That is the number one rule of my collection, it must remain at a level where I can display ALL OF IT.
That a very good rule Smokey. Try to live up to that one too.
What can't be displayed, will not be bought (superbargains excluded)
I just bought an extra cabinet to fit all my BIG diecasts (SUV, pickups...
so the normal diecasts have more room for a better display.
However, if i put them closer together now, i have more room for more diecasts

If you can spot all the new additions I would be very impressed.
I'm not into the non-muscle, so i won't go there,
but i think i've spotted a few new ones in the muscle-corner:

Plymouth GTX green Ertl?
Pontiac GTO "The Judge"?
Chevrolet Camaro 1969 Supercar Collectibles?
Chevrolet Camaro Baldwin Motion HW61?
Buick GSX Ertl?
Dodge Charger Daytona orange Ertl?
Ford Mustang 1971 Autoart?
Mercury Cougar Autoworld?
Pontiac Trans-Am Greenlight?
Chevrolet Corvette
Chevrolet Corvette 1965 red stinger Ertl?

You got the roofs of the AUTOart Corvettes?

well done for the most part except the daytona and greenlight Trans Am, I had those before, and yes I got my autoart tops, just keepin in the box. the Autoworld 67 with red stinger is pretty sharp but I would not spend more than 60 or 70 bucks for it, I really love that color combo and it matches the 69 BM camaro from Highway 61 I got.
And which ones did i miss? Just curious

So that's the new Autoworld '67, no? Pictures please

I'd like to see if it's worth the import tax.

Great story Josh! Both Camaro's look awesome, but hey, they're HW61! I sure love mine!
No BM yet, only got a SS, RS and ZL/1. But that black "Stinger" Baldwin looks sooooo gorgeous

There a Chevy truck by HW61 in that same green/white, no?

Great pictures Josh! I had the opportunity a couple of times to get the yellow one cheap, but i didn't bother as a have the black one.
And i usually don't buy the same car, except if there are differences. But never noticed the GSX and Stage 1 have different back ends!

That Pikes Peak T16 really looks like a Bat Out Of Hell! So cool!
And very interesting photostudio
Or are you gonna try out the resistance of the new Autoart plastics?

Strange color on that White Whale.....it might have the blues?


Congrats Josh. But what's the purpose of that paper towel? Display, or masking the drool spots?

I am just putting a few pics up here of this for Sven. This car has the same engine and interior and trunk detail as the 78 versions. So these are just general pics, the blue paint is quite nice and IMO Sven it looks far more like a late 70's outrageous US "performance" car, all bark and no bite! LOL
Thanks Josh
That Blue looks great. Is that a bit of metallic?

This one looks to be just.....awesome! I can imagine the thrill of having a 1:18 avatar in your cabinets

Details are stunning! I'd love a race - Belair to go with my HW61 Belairs, wonder if they will do more versions?

If you paid $110, i'm afraid what the European pricetag will be
