$200 is silly money for a 1 of 6000 hot wheels car.

 

this was considerably less, I was in a meeting the day it sold so I grabbed one yesterday for about $10 more than they originally sold for with shipping. Ok.

Dude. That's gorgeous. I let my RLC membership lapse since I had so much trouble getting the website to work during sales. Pieces like that one make the question my decision.

Been a member since the beginning, 2001 or so and I can't let it lapse. Seems to be getting better for me but the muscle car guys are peeved.

I can and understand why their mad. It's kinda hard to please everyone and plus they just had the voting for the next RLC cars.

It's interesting, the voting for selections cars was (still live right now)

(1) convoy custom vs drag bus with convoy custom winning 

(2) 41 willys gasser vs the 300sl Mercedes with the willys winning

(3) 67 camaro vs 72 Torino with the Torino winning

(4) Lamborghini Countach vs r34 skyline with lambo winning

The traditionalists are not going to win, a drag bus or a camaro would have won for the first 15 years of the club but now they've pulled in another entire demographic that has zero interest in camaros. Interested to see which they put against which next but I see the Willys or the Lambo winning it all. I don't have the willys at hand but the quality on these are astounding

Not something I want to know! Once when I counted I quit at 10,000 and I wasn't in very far.

Oh man, finally more Ford team transporters. I gotta spend some of my COVID bucks on those.

In other 1/64th scale news, I recently acquired this classic SPAM Nascar Thunderbird.

May I get some advice or direction from you knowledgeable Hot Wheels folks?   I have most of my collection from my childhood in the 60’s and 70’s.   Lots of redline stuff.   All well loved and none packaged.  What are some good resources to get some idea of value of these?    

Thanks!

Refer to Michael Zarnock's guides, and compare/contrast with completed ebay listings and the South Texas Diecast site.
