Collecting and OrganizingYour Most Expensive Car

I've only been collecting HW's since January, and mostly pickup cars at Thrift Stores, and from local individuals looking to unload their stockpile. Most cars I get for .25 a piece and others I pay 1-1.59 per car. But recently I was looking for something special...and bought it today. It's a early 1970's edition Matchbox Superfast Rolls Royce #69....I won the bid for a little over $12 bucks, but with the shipping its just over $20 dollars. O well, I have a birthday coming soon ...so what's you most expensive car?

gotta be the "blown delivery" mail-in at k-mart ; 20 mainline car's cards w/ reciept plus $3.95.... did it twice... ouch ! but,
i have never seen one for under $50.00 ...

If you'r going by what I have paid and not worth mine could be any of the HW membership cars. I think it's 25 bucks to join up to get the car.

I used to pay premium prices for THs, SEs, & VW Buses...but not since I've become involved in the ePay.

Well at least I'm in good company

I have the same car I got new in the 60's. It is a bit more played with though. I think it was about $.29

hmm... I bought the Vintage Series Snake for $7 at a flea market.

Stickers fell off the originals long long ago.

OK, I have some Roth cars (JL) along with many I have paid up to $20 something + for on the shelves. These are not the racers but the show collection. 14 shelves with cars 9 or 10 accross and 3 deep. The shelves are also the door into the other side of the basement. There are also 8 Jammer cases full so far, not counting the cars that go out with the Big Track, another 70 or so.

Not too bad, ain't gonna be a contender though.

Wow, you guys are serious. Most I've spent on a single car is $3 for the Weinermobile at the Nashville convention last year. I think the most I could spend a sleep at night is $5 - yes, I'm that cheap.

Btw, great topic!

i built street rods as a hobby... (70) $10 hot wheels doesn't get you a set of tires...so i don't kringe when i have to bite the bullit...

Yup that one too, from 1993 flanked by Yesterday & Today Monkeemobiles. The yesterday is a Husky toy. Today is a JL.

the today's monkees mobile is what i based my '67 zjevelle on... and i have a stock and a chromed "dogger"

Does the Monkeemobile on the left have a little Davey Jones in it? Or is that a tiny Peter Tork?
