Well, I hit 100 models this week. After 4 years of collecting, and about $800 spent, this is what I have to show for it.

Of course this doesn't include the one I drive, the two I have on my desk at work, the one I have in my bedroom, the one on my hatch in my car, the one I have apart to be painted, or the 5 I'm giving away at Jetfest.


So, HERE'S a link to pictures of my collection, and the following is a breakdown of what I have:







Thanks to Peloton for the silver car in front. I found the orange one in Branson and the teal one in town recently.


Here's part of my 1/64th scale collection. The blue WRC Focus at top is from a Toys R Us gift pack that came in a BIG Semi that actually had the case shown as part of its trailer. I paid $20.00 for the semi with 18 cars, but I only wanted the Focus so I cut off the bed of the truck and now use both sides of it to display my smaller models.


I'm happy I got those Import Racer models too since they were only available in a 5 pack and I never saw them separately.

The picture is really crappy, but each of those Autumn Orange Focuses has a different type of wheel on them, and the two blue Focuses are actually different colors.

The Phat Boyz is the ONLY ZX5 model I have been able to find in stores. Too bad it's a deformed one....






I found this SVTF set on ebay recently and had to have it. It's nice that it came with 6 of them, by why a white one? If they just made the white one orange, there would be one of every color available on the SVTF.....




Here are my R/C Focuses. The small one in front I found in Radio shack a couple of Christmases ago. The Echo one I got at the KB Toy Outlet in Branson. It's cool because when you ram it into something, the front end deforms and the doors pop open like it is wrecked. One push of a button on the remote and it pops back into position.




Yes, the Motor Max models have to be the cheapest models yet....the engine isn't even a Zetec.....but for $10.00 for the 1/18 scale, the price isn't too bad.




I guess now I'll start to focus on finding some nice WRC Focus models since I don't have very many of them.

Hope you like.

Just awesome! I'd love to catch you, but I think my budget won't allow that. I'm almost up to 60!

sweet collection!

I am just happy I have a few that you don't have


Since I got married, my toy car buying has stopped.
My wife doesn't understand the joy of buying Focus and Mustang toy cars.

Try there. He may have a few that you don't. If he doesn't then I know that he could point you in the right direction.

I know there are a LOT that I don't have. I could go on ebay and double my collection overnight. I just happened to buy most of mine in stores.

I'm at the point that I will have to start looking online though because it's getting harder to find new ones in stores.

Thanks for the link.

Jason I believe you have finally reached the SVTF-OCD level.

That is certainly a great collection of toy cars you have aquired over the years.
