For Christmas, my wife bought me a Carney Display Case. For those that don’t know, in our 10+ year relationship, she has never bought me anything diecast-related so this is clearly a momentous occasion in our relationship. 😉 With that said, I have always been quite fond of the divided-shelf, acrylic cases as they allow you to show a large grouping of vehicles in one shot.
The display was relatively easy to put up as I was able to do it by myself. However, the hard part came in deciding what to put in it…
After a period of deliberation — and some Hot Wheels liberation (from their packages) — I settled on showcasing my Dodge #Charger collection. I have 50 unique #Variations of the #’69 Dodge Charger, along with another 10 of the very similar #’69 Dodge Charger 500. NOTE: I have not broke down and paid for a “flamed FTE ’69 Charger” yet which can go for a considerable amount of money. Also in the case are 15 unique variations of the #’70 Dodge Charger R/T, the Ghost Rider Charger (and a custom “Flame-Off” version I made), and the #Large and in Charger — oh, and I also threw in a new favorite of mine, the #Unlicensed Hot Wheels #Muscle Bound casting.
This should be every release of the castings shown — sans any crazy #Variations — and is only a small sampling of the Dodge #Chargers that Hot Wheels makes. Ultimately, I’d love to get some vintage Custom Charger redlines, but acquiring those would be extremely pricey. So, that is on the back-burner for now. NOTE: Getting ONE in good shape will most likely cost you over $100.
Let me know if you have any questions or comments below, and I will try to answer them as they come in. Thanks for stopping by!
