    Olá Skooter.
    Not, it's never late. I started my collection for less than 10 years. Too bad my children became teenagers and not more interested. More grandchildren come…
    I have about 300 cars. I do not want all the line a year. The criteria that I use is simple: the most interesting for my taste. It may be that the cars have become more icons or incremented. It also has the oldest, those launched longest.
    Ideal for storing Local? I have no idea. There are those sets of niches (Free market), but fill the wall of cars and they would be quite dust. I will keep a very large box, properly closed. Several are still in the original blister. All are recorded in a detailed spreadsheet.
    An idea I saw was the following: necklace small magnets on the wall. Hold the cart then. A great decorating tip for boys room. But will with dust (wash). The boy picks up the cars you want, play, and then puts them back.
    Soon put all photo on Instagram.
    Hug.

      Hello Carlos André,

      I will also not want all models of the year. Also because, understanding hair, are 250 in the year. I find most interesting models that replicate real cars, either new or classic. Except for Snoopy Snoopy is because Snoopy. 🙂

      I intend to keep the blisters also. I will not let no sealed cart, but I will leave the saved blisters to enhance the collection and also because they have the information that is not in the stands (collection, number, etc.).

      I saw the free market niches sets. You have options with doors in acrylic. Causing some local carpenter I think you can get with glass doors also. So solve the dust problem. But for now I think it does not justify to me, therefore spend more on the shelf than the total value of all stands. Also think would burden a little the walls of my office, you already have cabinets on two sides, the other and only a small window free wall. Finally we have the problem that one day end niche and it takes another set or get selecting which carts go for niches.

      For now I got a little space in one of the lockers, Glass door. I will park them there for now. If you ever find a set of small niches that fit inside the cabinet can also put.

      I also decided to make a spreadsheet, I put partly at end of article, even as you run the risk of buying repeated. I'll see if I print just the code list and leave the wallet.

      Luciane,
      Glad to have helped, even unintentionally. 🙂
      My first stand also came from a visit to HiHappy to buy a birthday gift for a friend's child. We knew he likes Hot Wheels, so I ended up buying one of those boxes that comes with 10 carts. I could not resist and I bought a cart for me too.
