Very cool collection I had a Corgi and matchbox and a few dinky military ones, I still have a few but not as many as I use to.

Another cool thread... I am going to have to have another beer and look through all this cool stuff. I went through a phase in Uni when I bought all the large Corgi cars that had as a kid. My favourite was The Saint Jaguar (I only recall the second series, but I hear there was an early one too).

That newspaper taxi is awesome but has just started my brain singing in my inner mind about tangerine trees and marmalade skies...

Nice thread. I have a few pics to share. Took these real quick and in groups. As you can see they line the top of my display case and then some. I mainly stick to the vehicles based on movies, games, or TV shows but also have a few funny ones just because I liked the way they look.  

The matchbox I bought when my dad passed. The last picture I have of him living he was driving his John Deere tractor. I couldn't find a John Deere in the store the day I saw that one and for some reason when I saw it i had to buy it.

You can probably tell I love batmobiles and my favorite is the Adam west batmobile. The one by itself is a "super treasure hunt". I don't really know the market and whatnot but it is supposed to be rarer and I tried to get a decent pic of the flames on the hood of that one.

This is an awesome thread!

@Artoo_Detour I love everything Marvel related. So cool! And the Aston Martin is pretty sweet as well.

@trappedtexan Not huge on DC but I can appreciate what looks to be an excellent batmobile collection!

The James Bond Aston Martin's a must have for anyone who considers themselves a serious toy collector Cool

I love those television & film related Hot Wheels, they bring back fond memories of buying Corgi Juniors.

Cheers guys.
@trappedtexan - Bryan, that's a cool collection of Batman vehicles, also the TV and film related ones.

I saw that Hotwheels did a range of Star Wars vehicles, anyone got any?

here's my latest die cast I picked up today from a local vintage toy shop, all Corgi, and for about the price of a good pizza ( chevre et miel au feu de bois  :Drool: )

A couple of more movie/tv cars and some star wars ones. The star wars cars are fairly random, but my kid picked them out and gave them to me for Christmas (of course my wife purchased them but he chose them). The back to the future car is fairly neat as the back of the card shows some cool line art of the car. The Munsters was a classic show I grew up with so had to have that one when I saw it.

@trappedtexan - thanks for adding the Hot Wheels SW cars. Along with the Munsters and the BTTF ones they're really cool.

@thundershot - love the Corgi firefighting vehicles, and how cool is the box art on that Simon Snorkel! I remember having a Corgi or Matchbox fire engine with the grey plastic extendable ladders. Cool toys.
