One of many diecast models in my collection.

The 1941 Chevy Special Deluxe Cabriolet is a classic car that is very rare and the last of the great pre war cars made by GM.

Enjoy! Mario.

If I did not know any better, I would swear that was an actual 1941 Chev. What a superb recreation of that amazing car. Cheers.

I agree George, the detail on the Franklin and Danbury Mint diecast cars is incredible! Much more than when we used to build the plastic car models. It took many years to afford this collection and I look at it everyday. Cheers!

I was using that commercial from the old days:

When I grow up I wanna be a TOYS OR US kid.

Wow you sure sharshed my buzz.

Guess I'll go get my own collectibles to play with.

Actually I sold off my collectDale Earnhardt Sr. Even his rare car painted by Peter Max.

When I lost interest in Nascar, I put the collection up for sale, and even then prices were dropping like Joe Biden's popularity.

I offered them to my son and grandson and no takers. Just goes to show you what is valuable today may not be tomorrow.

I think that's Edward Jone's Theme song for my 401K

Mario, you have now made me officially jealous of your amazing die cast car collection. Can you please put me in your will. You are living testimony that you are never too old to play with toys and the more toys the better. Cheers,

That's right George we are never too old to have toys especially cars! The diecast collection I have took decades to accumulate but it was worth it. I filled up my cabinet and have to stop collecting them now. Cheers!

Mario, do not forget your very understanding wife. Mary, my partner in crime will never get the toy car thing, as hard as I try to explain it to her. Cheers.

I give much gratitude to my very understanding wife Regina on the diecast models. She bought the majority of them for me and she used to ask me which model I wanted each year for various birthdays, anniversaries, Christmas, etc. I am truly Blessed! Cheers!
