    anyone on this site interested in buying a diecast collection of over 800 cars. all types most are 1/24th scale or would trade for model 12 collection or a corvette of equal value. i am not much into any form of racing anymore. money has taken over all of it in my opinion. i don,t know what my collection books for anymore but it will take 50 grand in cash or trade. thanks dwain.

    Dwain,

    I suggest that you try selling them on e-bay.

    I would contact a local auction house. A collection that size would go over very well in that kind of enviornment.

    Call Barrett Jackson http://www.barrett-jackson.com/ They might like it for the novelty value.

    I can't believe how old Hot Wheels and Matchbox cars have taken off. I have a huge pile from when I was a kid, and some of them have never been on a track.

    You wouldn't happen to have a '58 Olds in there do you? I restored one for my dad 15 yrs ago. He put about 15,000 miles on it since then. He passed away in 2002, and I didn't keep it. It would be nice to a least have a model of it.
