Anyone on here ever sold off their cars?

If so, what is the best way; eBay, collector sites? Whole lot or piece meal?

I've got several hundred, from redlines up until about 2008, that are taking up space.

Send me a PM on here if you are really interested. I'm in Cincinnati, but I drive through Findlay periodically. I can either send you pics of the cars in their tubs or I can let you know if I gave specific things you want

Did you all see the Fatlace Hot Wheels line? Very cool stuff!

I've been studiously avoiding this thread given my proclivity for cheap hobbies with deep, dark rabbit holes, but as I was wandering around Target with the wife I came across these 2

This may be the start of something dangerous

Found 6 MB Skylines yesterday. Don't know if they are the turbo or stock ones yet. (Turbo has the 5pt harness) I forgot to look.

Anyone see the HotWheels Honda Z50 Monkeybike? Got 2 in red.

Wow brings back memories. What I think I recall most vividly is the smell.

Xmas was almost a week ago and no updates? You guyz are slipping... Well, technically these aren't gifts either, except to myself. I went to the vintage toy store in Bellbrook since it's been awhile & I'm off all week.

The white Porsche is from 1974, the Diablo adds to the Lambo collection, but the Celica Turbo on the end from 1979 is the favorite. $10 even for all seemed fair.

Sweet. I still have that Celica from my childhood in decent shape.

I'm not sure if this is lame or awesome, but I bought it anyway. I also picked up the Honda z50 monkey and a Torino Talledega.

What are Tomicas worth? I found a white Crown taxi with working front doors, an blue FJ40 with working doors, and an awesome white 70 Skyline GTR.

That sub will be impossible to find. Not only do we have to contend with HW stalkers, but...Beatles fans, too.

Got a BMW E9 Batmobile hotwheels at Target while looking for some cars for my 3 year old son...

Hot Wheels show in Dayton got moved to an IBEW union hall this time since Hara Arena is no more. A little crowded, weird setup with multiple small rooms, but still plenty of stuff to see. My haul was smaller this time, but still pretty cool:

The old 500 is a new release, I won a drawing for a storage bin I'd never use and the vendor let me trade for it, bonus! And the WRX was the pricey one of the day at $10, I passed on it last event at $15.

And someone had a bunch of those yellow submarines.

Today's birthday trip to Bellbrook. They had two other BP German imports but this was the winner. He has a large-scale Monkee's Mobile I REALLY wanted but we couldn't get to a price. It was bound to happen eventually.
