Very nice, that BMW CSL is lovely. Also approve greatly of that 61 Impala but I am biased as I used to own a real one and loved it, really would like another one to go with my 59. I seem to have loads of older Hot Wheels, not sure that I want to keep them though. I did buy a 70 Chevelle wagon recently but only because I once owned a 68 version.
Cheers Paul, the CSL is a great casting. My favourite is the black castrol car but the 3 I have are really nice. The Impala is very niceley done aswell, nice metal base on this one. I get what you mean, If you're at race retro next year provisionally there with a display & can discuss the Hotwheels if you want 8-)
I shall have to look out for the Impala. I'm hoping to visit race retro next year and look forward to seeing your display. I'll have to see what older Hotwheels I have and if they are of any interest. I can remember when they appeared in the shops back in the late 60's, bought a few with my pocket money and still have them, they are the original 'redline' series that came with metal badges.

Great batch! Porsche 964 gets my vote, with Escort in a close second.

Thanks, I'd put the Peugeot above the Escort due to the colourscheme.

Thanks Tom. You should collect these, so much more choice and sometimes so little money left at the end of the month :lol:

Took a while to find one. Wasn't cheap but it was worth every penny.

Got another Ryder on the way...slightly different pics when it arrives. The Jeep is cool. Not normally my thing but the woodgrain effect is good for the pricepoint

Matchbox 930 is familiar, I think I had one looooong ago. The Escort is great.
