    Since the UPS man got here well after dark, I went ahead and charged up the battery and got out my mostly Mustang diecast along with some various other Ford/Shelby cars. This does not include any of my NASCAR diecast which I believe I have 50+ cars in storage. All of these you see here were purchased just this year. I was on a many month long binge of buying up pretty much every Stang I saw in various stores. Several times I would go to the stores just for that purpose...kinda crazy, I know, but they are Mustangs after all:D

    First I will start with the larger scale:
    '65 GT
    [​IMG]

    '67 GT
    [​IMG]

    '67 GT500
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    '67 GT500KR
    [​IMG]

    '70
    [​IMG]

    Various S197
    [​IMG]

    Shelby Cobra, Shelby GR-1 and Ford GT
    [​IMG]

    Now onto the smaller scale:
    '65 and '67 GT
    [​IMG]

    '69
    [​IMG]

    '64 Falcon, '67 GT and '70
    [​IMG]

    '67 GT500
    [​IMG]

    You have some nerve putting up that you got a new cammy and not telling us what cammy it is..

    I did the same thing when I got my XTI.. got camera home when it was dark out and I wanted to go use the dang thing on something - anything. Die cast was the answer - *goes searching pc for die cast shots from a year ago*

    I just got the Canon Rebel XTi kit with the 18-55mm lens. This is my first SLR so I have much to learn:D The pics were taken at the full 10 MP, but were cropped and resized. I opened the pics up in the pic program and the images are 54" x 36"! That is banner size!!!!!

    I'll have to go through and photograph some of mine. But I would have to use my lightbox, which means all the cars have to come off the shelf and into the other room. That's a lot of work! Lol. One day.

    Congrats on the purchase. Good choice.

    Can't deny that aspect of it, can you kd6?

    I've bought a couple (thousand:eek: ) over the previous five years or so, Quit cold turkey about six months ago, still feeling withdrawal agonies. ("After all, they're Ferraris or Fords or ... right?")

    Here are a few:
    http://www.fototime.com/inv/33961D9E7FBA377
    Three albums accessible from that page.

    I pretty much collect 1:43; my house isn't tiny, but models take up a lot of volume, even at that relatively small size.

    I do have a dozen Mustang models from early this year, but haven't photographed them yet.

    So many projects, so little time, eh?

    **** Koolodawg, I just bought 10 on Ebay tonight after seeing that. Not all mustangs. Chevelle, Chargers, Old School ****, I just love muscle cars. You should get a kickback for the AD bonus.

    I will with most of them, but right now I'm waiting for my own place again where I will have room to display them. They store much easier this way. I have at least 50 Mark Martin diecast, 30+ various Ford plastic models(most of which are Mustangs) all boxed up in storage also waiting...:(

    That it sure is:nice: It drives the g/f nuts and she calls me a Mustang nut/freak:rlaugh: I assure her there are far worse things to be addicted to:D

    Thanks:nice:

    Nice collection Frank S. I like the smaller scale and easily agree it's easier to display without consuming most of the house space, but the larger scale shows so much detail:D

    Oops, sorry:D I love alot of different cars, but for the time being, I'm going after Mustangs.
    Some of them I plan on making dioramas with, others I will put in display cases and then some will just be sitting here and there:D Thanks everyone for the comments:D

    I think what he meant was waiting patiently to purchase. I would assume everyone knows there plenty of GT500 models out there, and several Barricade models. I have both. In fact, here's a couple pics I have on my flickr account of some of my collection, including those pieces.

    Right on Dark:nice: In "my" room at my old house I had a 7' bookshelf filled with just my plastic models. I had other shelves with my NASCAR diecast on them in several places in the room, but that was all taken down and moved 4 years ago now:( Now I have all that is shown here plus more added on top of that. They way it's going now, I'll need a decent sized room dedicated to cars:rlaugh:

    Anybody else have plastic or diecast? Please feel free to post it up in here:nice:

    Thanks Darkfire and Kooldawg. Yeah I want to buy a few of those asap. I'll have to go look around the toy shelves at Walmart. Any suggestions for buying locally? I cant stand waiting for online orders to come in. :p

    KMart and Toys R Us are the best place for the Carroll Shelby versions.

    A 20 plus year collection.
