        "small sampling"... You mean there are more than that?

          Yes, there are more. Maybe another 75 to 100. Then there are the Ferrari’s and the Ford GTs. A few other odd balls here and there.

          Yes, the majority are Carrera.
          I have Fly C5 Corvette, everyone they had at the time. A sprinkling of Scaletrix.

        Wow! Nice collection. Look forward to seeing more. Really liking the look of that custom painted Gulf liveried Gran Sport. Could you post more pics of that one?

          I grew up in Freeport, ME. Maine is a bigger state than most people realize. It's as big, if not bigger than the other five New England states combined.

        Great thanks for sharing & awesome collection. Your cabinet looks excellent. I’m sure the cabinet is bigger than it looks if they are all 1/24.

          Well, there are some 1/32 cars there. I was going to leave them all in their cases but that chews up too much room. So I have made big polycarbonate covers, sides and tops, to keep any dust off the cars that might migrate in between the slight gap in the doors.

        This will be my highlighted car when it gets to my home. This is a club car that they made 508 cars of which 60 they put in track sets. I tried to buy one out of a set that was being offered, but the seller said no, but he said his brother had a car that he was willing to sell. Here it is...

          Very difficult to find this car, never mind someone willing to sell.

        I have some of these, they were offered to club members as well.

          The Wynn Ford GT was built and painted by a fella in Germany that I have bought a few of his other cars that he has done. Superb craftsmanship!

        The big portable track that has a case comes with 3 cars, all red Ferrari’s. I found one red Ferrari 575 that had been separated from the set. Here it is....this set costs €999 plus €150-250 for shipping. Total to land one of these sets is around €1150-€1250 ($1356-1474) for the set that has 3 cars (1/24 scale) and two wireless controllers along with clear track.

          I have not bought one of these sets as they are just too darned expensive to get to the states.

          And this one is a 2015 Z06/Z07. Running in Nevada at the Silver State Classic. Second year we won our class. There were about 10-14 cars in our class. My wife was navigator and I was driver. This year we changed our communication method and that made a huge difference. When I get my 63 swc Corvette done, we will tow that out and run it as well. It’s a blast...

            I had 3 other Corvettes, 1964 365 hp/ 4 spd, another 1963 split window coupe that was numbers matching and a 1957 Corvette. The hardest one of these 3 to sell was the 1964. That was my beater car and was great. When it rained it leaked like a sieve...but was a blast. The was a numbers matching car as well...but fun! I sold them to make more room in the shop. There is also a 1930 Ford Model A street rod and my wife’s bad ass 1937 Minotti bodied Ford with 8 point roll cage, 396 with supercharger on top and 410 gears. It is scary from the time you put your foot in it until you stop! The short wheelbase gets your attention!

            Here are photos of the two street rods
