Arrow Hot wheel/Matchbox cars

The past couple days I've been on the web looking at diff things. Like the past Hotwheel logos and I came unpon a car fourm and they were having a thread about hotwheel cars. They have tons and I mean tons of them. Some of them also modifiy them such as changing paint and wheels. I do collect and buy some time to time,but I didn't think people got this serious about TOY cars. Some sale for up to $7,000. Seeing this made want to start buying more such as I did when I was younger. I also foundout that there's a guy who has the most hot wheels in the WORLD 8,128!!!!! My mom says that I can bet that and I'm compelled to do so. I most have a least 1,000 cars which some have to be hot wheels or matchbox cars. So what I'm really wondering is does anybody on here collect any?? They can other brands I just want to know.

I have over 500 from my younger years, and occasionally I'll find a cool one and keep it. :P

I have a few lol I'm no hardcore collector, but that's because I only get cars I like, such as Firebirds and Camaros and Corvettes.

Not a HUGE fan, but I don't mind them. I am a nature person. :P

Welll.... hehehe... I am a college kid so I drive a 1999 Nissan Altima. But I love American Pony Cars!! I'd LOOOVE a '69 Camaro SS, or an Eleanor Mustang (either one, the '73 Mach 1, or the '67 GT500), or my DREAMMMMM car, a '77 Firebird Trans Am :D And of course, a 2010 Camaro and a 2002 Firebird WS6 Trans Am and a 1974 Corvette Stingray... ahhh I could go on forever xD

Awesome! Yep yep, I've been into American Muscle and pony cars for a few years now. I don't know much about engines and stuff yet, (still trying to learn!) but I love old mustangs, all Camaros (except maybe the 80's) and Trans Am's... Corvettes I love too even though I guess those are sports cars. I'm not much on foreign cars as far as looks go, but my little Altima is cute. His name is Skipper :P I had an '98 Oldsmobile Eighty Eight named Betsy but I sold her :c I had to get a car with less miles and more MPG
