Will be on the lookout for these years. i didn't think this would spark interest. seems like everyone is not interested at times. i am getting into collecting corvette models. i am on the lookout for a 1980 corvette , white would be a good color. i have a zora-duntov 1980 corvette but it isn't white.

I haven't searched lately, but I wouldn't mind having a 1:18 '98 red convertible w/a black top/black interior. I don't personally care for the '98 rims, but my father had one just like that (the car) and I remember searching for a diecast at that time, but I could never find that combination.

all C5 1/18 roadsters made have no tops, but they do make a red/black..check out Maisto or Ut or autoart. C5's are fairly common and they should not go for a high price. you could probably find one on Ebay

what scale are you looking to collect,,1/18..1/23..1/43..1/64 ..die cast or plastic. As they are very different as to who make what in what color and what scale and what you'll pay. here's a shot of about 1/4 quarter of my 1/18 corvette collection, wating for my cases to come in1/18 corvettes die cast (http://home.attbi.com/~spiderwb/images/diecast.jpg)

My wife would not let me put 10 cases on the walls in the house, as it's and antique colonial she say's they don't go with the decor. I happen to disagree as I think any corvette fits in well, guess that's why I'm not and interior decorator:D

so they are being setup in my garage which is in the process of being remodeled, already have 4 cases installed and filled out there (48 cars). :)

It doesn't matter what scale. i collect all scales. today i am going to buy a 1953 Corvette 1/12th scale model, i have a choice of white or black, am undecided on color. what kind of display cases are you buying and where and what price? I am still looking for a white 1980 corvette.

i know there are no 1/18 scale die cast for Corvette, maybe there are sme in 1/25 or 1/24. the cases that I get are the same ones that exoticar sell , but I get them custom made for 40 bucks cheaper, hold 12 cars with morrored backs. I'll try and get a picture tonight of the one in the garage so you can see what the cases look like

cscarlson
04-25-02, 01:07 PM
about how much do you pay for them then?

supernatural400
04-25-02, 03:38 PM
for some reason my spelling really sucks today, but anyway
I get them for $90.00 per case, exoticar get $130.00 for the same case

Super,
You should have been with other members of the N.E. Corvette Club when they came to our President Bruce Hammond's house a couple of Saturdays ago. The purpose was to see the "South Shore Corvette Museum"...Bruce has hundreds and hundreds of Corvette models in his Corvette Room!! Unbelievable! We had a great get-together that night.

I was planning on going as I talk almost nightly with Joe Federico, we are both heavy into buying the 1/18 cars and look out for each other on ebay so we don't raise the price bidding on the same cars. But my grand daughter was due to spend the night so I had to back out. I heard every one had a great time . In fact I had to pick up 3 more case from Joe tonight, my wife saw his collection and couldn't believe her eyes, she thought I had alot, but I'm lighweight compared to him. If you get a chance go over to his house and see his setup, awesome :D

problem I have now is since I own two Z28's I have to start collecting Camaro's,another 150 cars in 1/18

i have found 1/32 scale models in display cases. some are corvettes but most are other older sport cars like camaro's, challengers, mustangs and others. these are nice models and cool to collect
