I like your listing. If you got it broke down by company what was issue.since that the way I got my cars displayed. By company. I think I got some doubles you may not have. Like EFSI I been getting in lately. I can give you to fill in your holes. A lotof scalpers get mad at me at shows. Since I trade loose cars only. and never sell any.
Most time I give to true collector like yourself who only goes after 1 car for his collection. Not 20 cars with diffrent wheel verents. Sometimes I double a body style cause I like the color. Or friend who I know is a true collector and needs one.Like Greg and Murry always droping cars off to me and picking up ones I find extra around never no money or haggling. Its a retirement hobby for me now. If I find one or don't not biggy to me.
The enjoyment is watching the smile when I give a collector a car.Or at christmas to a small boy who wanted a Hotwheel Vw Bus for collection for nothing. Geeze you should seen the dead eyes stares I got from the other sellers at the show. Hey it justa .99 cent car to me. And a little boy smile and thank you more priceless then toy car.
Next month I'll buy some of those zymac sets. I all ready spent $200.00 on cars this month. and the old lady Yellat me where you going to put them all at. (she right I'm running out of walls only rooms left is the kitchen,living room and dining room. the garage and my playroom stacked. hehehe.)
Well heres my web site. I rotate cars ever 3 months this month its mustangs. <http://home.inreach.com/djblade> you might see one on those page you might want just give a yell if I got extra you can have it. Thanx from true collector to another.

Editor's response: This is certainly one of the most interesting messages I have received. I visited Bill's site and he does have an amazing collection. Judge for yourself.
