Any one else seen these? I love em! I have all the 1966 Mustang ones. I also have 2 of the big scale ones, and let me tell you they are awesome! They have real stainless braided lines on the engine. Tons of detail, even though the are cartoon ish looking. For x-mas my gf got me two tin signs for mustangs, a 1968 Mustang CJ428 1:18 scale, a 6 pack of the Johny lightning mustangs, and a mustang calander. I thought i was one of the only crazys with tons of die cast cars. Is anyone else like me and does not take the cars out of the package? I can't stand to do it! My living room of my apartment has mustangs all over.

Jeff,
I have about 25 Mustangs both Die-cast and models that I've built. They are all out of the box. I buy them for the enjoyment not to put them away and hope someday they'll be worth something. That is what my real car is for.

I agree most should be displayed out of the box but there are some which should never be opened.

I have one.. 1/24 #7 Hooter UnderBird low production numbers and none made after Alans untimely death which makes it very hard to find.

Sam is right,some do become worthless once they are out of the package. The 1/64's are really prone to this.

I do have some muscle machines,in 1/64. I have 2 Stangs,white/blue and silver/black. Also have an orange 41 Willys truck,and the black woody Ford wagon!
