It's all I could afford after I completed my ex-wife collection.

It started with Matchbox and Hotwheels model cars....

Then, onto real cars. Some people bring home stray animals, I bring home stray cars.


As an aside, my Mom was working on a patient, when she noticed that the woman's young son was playing with his Matchbox cars. The woman (younger than my Mom) asked my Mom if boys ever stop playing with toy cars. All my Mom did was show her a picture of my then-wrecked race car. "No, they never stop. They get older, the cars get bigger and more expensive."

Musclecars and Motorcycles.

When I was a kid it was coins and stamps - still have them - might really be worth something today.

Still have a few of my late '60s Hot Wheels and a couple early '70s Sizzlers (remember those)

Man, Mattel made some cool stuff back then!

I still have a coin collection and a very substantial sports card collection boxed up somewhere from when I was a kid.


oh yeah, movies and cds also if that counts.

Weapons books and folding knives here
Link Posted: 9/13/2005 7:27:27 PM EDT
Guns & all the things that go with them. If I have an M1 carbine, then I have to have all the bayonet & mags and accessories that go with them.

Ammo. most for shooting but will save representative samples in collection

Military field gear. helmets gas masks shovels bayonets etc.

mess kits and canteens ,military Palco, Boy & Girl Scout logo , doesn't matter as long as they are not cheap imported knock-offs

Old cook stoves and lanterns. Coleman only ( only a few ) One of my favorites is a GI 1950 gasoline pack stove that I found in the trash. The kids and I cook breakfast in the backyard with that one.

I try not to go overboard, My collections are mostly acquired at garage sale, thrift shop or on-line auctions if I can get them cheap. Also, I justify it in my head it will be useful for SHTF use or barter.

I really like old camping equipment. As a boy I loved camping and slept out in my yard a lot as well as scout trips. The old stuff brings back good memories.

Besides guns, I collect ammo, all separated in ammo cans. I also have a kick-ass collection of autographed baseballs and other autographed baseball memorabilia (mainly Red Sox items). Me and my kids have quite the Hot Wheels collection going, many dating from a decade or two ago.

Do some of yours happen to be Treasure Hunt, or World of Hotwheels convention editions.......some of mine are. I guess that's the part of me that refuses to grow up.....exacerbated by the fact that I have two sons (and maybe one on the way...find out the sex next week)

Hi. My name is Wes and I am a collector.
Link Posted: 9/13/2005 9:11:14 PM EDT
knives and packs. I don't know what it is about packs. I hike and backpack some but not to the extent to justify all my packs. I have camelbacs in several sizes and several sized backpacks. Sometimes it's in search of the "perfect" pack and I'll get one that doesn't work out at all, like the camelbac flashflow. It's the waistpack version. I was hoping it would be cooler on my back but instead it feels heavy hanging off my waist/hip.

Oh, the worst of all, headlamps and flashlights. My favorite is the princton tec corona. It's an led headamp which has a switch to enable you to choose various numbers of leds and 2 brightness modes for each, plus a blinking mode!
