    Hi everyone,


    This thread is the thread for toy car enthusiasts to show their collections! It is alright to show other brands, even if they are unknown. It makes a good puzzle!

    Happy collecting! :)

    ...There should be a picture here if ImageShack wants to cooperate...

    That's the "good quality" part of my collection comprising about one third of it. Most of them old Matchbox models, accompanied by some Majorette and Hot Wheels models and there even seem to be a couple of Siku Super Series.

    Is it alright to wash toy cars with water with hand washing sope or just clean them with water?

    Using soap isn't going to hurt anything I wouldn't think. That said it won't do much either unless there is somehow caked-on mud.

    Behind you

    i played with them as toys in my early childhood. the last car i ever bought was a 350z. then i gave them all to my nephews since they like cars.

    my personal favorites were 2 clk-gtr's in silver and red, and a blue panoz gtr-1.

    My only matchbox car is my brothers fairly old 911 gt1.
