All except for the Top Secret 350Z were purchased from RevSpot when they were still around. The Top Secret 350Z was brought over from HK as a gift from my brother.

Wilkinson on Ontario and Broadway.

The owner Ted bought all the remaining stock of the local distributor a few years ago. Prices range from $20-$50. They should still have some available.

Wish I had that kind of shelf space. Picked this up from wal-mart today, lol. Sold at Wilkinson for $50, wal-mart had it for $20. Huge Aston Martin fan. Now if I could only find a DBS and DB5 on the cheap.

sometimes, some of the best bargains are on craigslist... rare cars, autoart cars etc.

wilkinsons also has a "used" car lot i check by once in a while for awesome rare stuff.......



picked up this long discontinued UT models 993 RS from them...



picked up these three on craigslist.



just need to bargain hunt/ sniff around for this stuff locally! theyre not as expensive as most people think! the maisto race cars (CLK GTR, 911 GT1, BMW LMR, Audi R8R) were all about $20 a piece!

good example on CL:

For Sale: 1:18 Maisto, Bburago, Hot Wheels diecast model cars

Wish the DB9 model had swan doors that angle up a bit like the real car. Would've been a nice detail.

Here's my small small collection of 1:18/1:24. They're so expensive, and they take up so much space.



But my favorite 2 are:



Here's the collection, I'm trying to collect: "Hot Wheels". New in Packaging, primarily collected Japanese cars, and a few Europeans and a few domestic ones.

The quality of hot wheels cars just isn't really there anymore, especially with those shitty decals that are often misaligned.

Picked up one of these today. maybe one day it'll be worth something, lol. personally I think Angry Birds is extremely overrated and idk why everyone is obsessed with it.

I remember I bought it off somebody, but I totally lost his name/user name and stuff.... Yes it was me.... Right after when I went home I put the vehicle still in the box into a glass case, and its been there since...
I don't think I have taken it out of the box at all.
