Any hotwheels collectors here?

I'm curious who else out there collects. Sure I have all the usual models anyone collects, the treasure hunts and the super treasure hunts and any other models deemed to be valuable. I dont sell any just collect. I collect the regular models too. I'm sure a few of you have found focus models. There are quite a few. Currently I have a red focus rs from last year, regular model and the super treasure hunt version, I have a green rs from a few years ago, Got a green rs from this year in the easter series, also got an orange and black 08 coupe from this years models. Even dug up a few first gen models from way back, both are drag cars with a big ass wing on them. Who else collects focus models in particular. I'm sure some of yall have way more than what I have found

I've got 3,000 some 1:64 and ~100 1:16.
I stopped 'collecting' when the big tire models came out (2005'ish).

I bought retail and tried to put together complete sets, including variations and Treasure Hunts. I'm close for a few years but missing enough where the sets are worthless.
Don't plan on finding/finishing them off. Now I just want to get rid of them. But it's tough finding someone to buy them all in one shot; locally at least.

I had most all the Focus cars (all scales) in the MK1 generation. Sold a couple of the 1:16 ones so now I'm a few colors short. Still have quite a few though.

I had no idea this section existed. Focus models are cool. i try and pick them up when I find them. All I have is a few 1:64 models. I'd like to see some of these bigger models you have

I have a few. I try to get out monthly and hit up a few flea markets, walmarts, targets, toys-R-us ect. It's nothing for me to bring home 10 bags with 20 to 30 each home.











I've recently started taking pictures of them, its going to take me a while.

What do you do with so many hot wheels? on display somewhere? Do you have something planned for them?
