Default Hot Wheel cars

started by them for my son in 1995 when he was born. As he got older, 7,8,9,10, it got a lil out of hand.

anyway he is wishy washy about selling them even to this day at 21. I am too.

issue is, there's 1500 hundred in 3 Tupperware containers that weight 50 lbs each.

I'm sentimental but they take up a ton of space

Are they all in the original packages or all played with?

That's not bad at all.

My sister's best friend's husband has been collecting these things for 30 or more years. He has multiple copies of every one ever made, all mint and in the box. He goes to the plant and buys new ones every month. His collection takes one or more rooms in the house. To say his wife is furious about his obsession is an understatement.

We have the same thing. All ours are still in the package brand new. Many certain Hot Wheels series also.
Not sure what to do with them,

I'm sorry, but I had much more fun blowing mine up with firecrackers and M-80's!
My Corgi's usually took 2 M-80's!

They are not which I know that's where the collector value is. But these were never outdoors, really he just looked at them freaking out. Spent 2 weekends separating the Hot Wheels from Matchbox and garbage Johnny Rockets. So 1500 Hot Wheels. Ugh.

That's funny, we did the same thing, we'd also put dents in then and mess up the paint so they'd look like all the cars in our neighborhood

My parents kept my old cars (some of them at least) and my 2 and 3 year old play with them when they go over. We have some now, but nowhere near the hundreds, if not thousands I had.

My brother and I had several hundred. At some point while growing up, they just disappeared. I did not know my mom had saved them. About a year ago. she gave them to my kids. The real surprises were the ones that my mom got from when her brothers/my uncles were kids. They have to be... idk... 70 years old?

I still enjoy looking at my old cars. Always brings a smile to my face! Especially when my kids make the same noises that I made forty years ago!

still have mine from... 1967 and later. They used to be $1 and my mom would buy me one on Fridays if I got 100 on my spelling tests. I also got one that came free with a bottle of Prell shampoo, haha...that one was a lime Silhouette. Gee I cant believe I remember that! I forgot what I had for lunch yesterday!
