Die Cast/Model Z Cars

So, does anybody else here collect mini Z cars?

I didn't really MEAN to start collecting them, but it just sorta happened and now I grab every one of them I can find

Last night I found a Z31 in a multi-pack of cheap Matchbox knockoffs... funny thing is, that the Z31 is the most faithfull and accurate rendition of all the cars in the box. So I bought this box of 8 cars just for the Z31. it's cool though, cuz I just give the rest of the cars to my kids.

Anyway, I think I'll take some pictures of them and post 'em up. I also have a pretty good number of Skylines.

I need more S130's, Z31's and Z32's in all sizes. I only have one S130 and one Z31. I have a couple differrent Z32's but only a couple. Of course, I have about a million Z33's cuz they're so popular right now.

Anyway's just seeing if I was the only Z Dork here.



Rod.

I collect various Z stuff, also musclecars, exotics etc... I mainly focus on 280zx's. I also picked up 2 of the 240's in the Hot Wheels series, pretty tight. So no you are not alone man. I still collect toys lol.

Z-hag don't feel bad about what the x took, my x-wife took everything in the house except my car collection, of which I have 100's of different collector cars and trucks. Inside of all the cars and trucks I had filled them with quarters and various denominations of bills. The only money she didn't get was what was in the cars. She didn't realize why they were so heavy.

I've been into toy cars and models since I was a kid. You're definitely not the only one who's still into it. The bedroom is about half my cars and half my wife's Hello Kitty stuff. My collection was mostly Ferraris when I was younger, but lately it's been Nissan. I've got a couple of 240Z's, a couple of Skylines, some 240sx's, and a Sil80. My favorites are my D1 Kazama S15, and my classic re issue transformer Smokescreen (280ZX). I'm waiting for a 1/24 scale model of the Wangan Midnight Devil Z to arrive from Hong Kong.

I've got a few Z's too. I try to find the older ones as they are a bit more rare, but I also buy 350Z's now and then.
