    I collect Diecast Model cars, in particular the Matchbox first edition, and the MB38 Ford model A Van, was into Tankers, Steam power, Tow Trucks, and Earth movers, But have now gravitated to Taxi's, as well as continueing with MB38s Got a few other bibs and bobs, mostly Aussie stuff, but if you have any MB38s you want to get rid of????

    I just had a browse of prices for a model car I have. The empty box is going for £109 on e-bay. Can't find out what it's worth with the car and instructions. It's a Corgi James Bond Car.

    I collect model cars of every car I have owned, over 30, with only 4/5 missing simply because no-one has made one. Also a few limited editions. Keep all the boxes , just in case I want/need to sell. I also collect AA and RAC car badges plus a few others.
