Default How Many Model Kits or Matchbox Cars Did You Have?

Ran across this site http://www.jayohrberg.com/Jays_Krazy_Kars.html I noted several cars here that I had as Matchbox cars and some models kits that I built as a youngster.

Kind of a nice trip down memory lane.....anyone else of us older farts recognize any of these?

Hmm not as old as you guys but I do have 13 car models built, 5 still in boxes unbuilt, and i don't even want to try to make a guess at how many matchbox and hot wheels I've had. My models are all production vehicles, 3 stock cars, and one plane though; none of those crazy cars.

Maybe back in the day, now it'* classics and muscle cars from the past. I did find a 1958.


And a 1960



Sure there'* more if you root them out.
