Collecting Diecast Cars – NASCAR

I’ve been collecting diecast cars for awhile now, I started with Hot Wheels as a child then as I got older I started collecting larger muscle cars. I collected Mustangs, Camaros, and Firebirds and so on. I also collected Indy cars and Formula 1, now I’m collecting NASCAR diecast cars. You can really go nuts with the NASCAR collection; each driver has two or three different paint schemes so you can collect them all for your favorite drivers, don’t forget all the Special Editions and fantasy paint schemes. Then there are all the different scales you can collect them in. You can get them in scale sizes from 1:64 to 1:18, 1:64 being the smallest and 1:18 being the largest.

So what scale do you collect small, medium or large, you can get great detail in any scale. I have a few 1:64, 1:43 and some 1:32 but mostly my diecast car collection consist of the 1:24 scale especially my NASCAR collection. They take up more room but they easier to see, maybe I’m getting older and need glasses but a story for another time. No matter what scale you collect they all look great and I’m sure that no one collects one scale and one scale only.

Don’t forget to get accessories for your collection; you can get car lifts, figurines, toolboxes, you can get a work shop and a crew to work on your cars. And let’s make sure to keep the dust off the diecast cars with some real nice display cases. You can place them in single display cases or a multiple wall mount display case. So if you are interested in diecast cars you should buy some diecast magazines. In the magazines you see all types of diecast cars from race cars to production cars. You can also check out your local hobby shop where you can get a close up look at all the different diecast cars. Don’t forget to ask your friends, they might be collector but just never talk about it. Your friends may be able to tell you of some good places to shop for your diecast models and where they have had good luck or bad luck in purchasing.
