What has been your best diecast purchase ever? Did you ever have an unbelievable trade? Thought it was a good idea to post a thread on this.

My best bargains ever must have been the Kyosho 512 Bburago and 308 QV for 15 Euro per piece. They lost their mirrors but still it was a hell of a deal. :happy

I also once bought a AUTOart Lotus Esprit Type 79 for only 17,50 Euro brand new in box. :giggle

My Exoto Porsche 935 Testcar new for 55,- Euro ain't one to forget either... :danbana

Wonder what you guys have caught! :cheers

Whoops, 550 was 55 :lol

Hey Felix, which was the better deal, the car or the box? :giggle :cheers
Probably simply buying cars at RRP on release, then watching them explode through the roof.

I got three Biante R32 1992 Bathurst winning GT-R Skylines - eaxch costing less than AUS$200. One went last week on ebay for AUS$700, and others always fetch over AUS$500!!! Each!!!!

The other one was a birthday present - an Ebbro R34 GT-R Nur-spec car, in Millennium Jade Green. RRP was AUS$75, then I see this:


I consider that a deal.
Very nice deals :cheers
I just bought a Panoz roadster for $20 and thought I did pretty good :cry
I was talking about your "Last C4" :giggle
But now that you mention it that was a giood deal for the both of us :cheers
I've had quite a few great deals but the one that sticks out would be 9 UT 911 GT2s (white) from an Australian dealer for about $25 each. :cheers
thanks to this forum i discovered not only did i have one of these but 2 of them. i paid $45.00 each less 40% totalling about $85.00 taxes included canadian funds for both of my ut porsche gt2 evolutions. i have seen them going for outragoues money now. the last one i seen on ebay got over $600.00. and i also traded 2 1999 schumacher ferrari f1 models for a minichamps 1/12 schumacher model which i have seen for over $1000 around canada, the 2 schumachers only cost me $50 for both on the shopping channel. those are my best buys.
