This is the top of my TV cabinet where the 1:43 and smaller cars live - there has to be at least 200 individual cars here, but most live in their boxes stacked sideways to optimize room and prevent box faces from fading. I mostly collect Matchbox made through around 1964 - which is not the cheapest thing to like - but they are not losing value either.

I like the Matchbox display stand you have. Pretty neat.

Those are cute items I ordered from England - the mint loose cars live there until I can find empty boxes for them. Empty boxes are an entire branch of Matchbox collecting - many bring $100++ even without a car.

The Chinese are getting quick
I remember I had a New Bright remote control Fiero when I was a kid, it was pretty cool - working lights and I think horn too.

New Bright's been around for so long? I thought they're a recent Chinese company making toys.
I bought my son a New Bright Dodge Ram remote control truck,. quite huge actually. I enjoy playing with it too as it goes over anything!

Yep, they go back at least that long.
Here's the toy I had I think it was a cheapie thing - maybe $20 or so new, but the detail was pretty fantastic to me, and it's pretty big, too.
