I'm looking for ideas on displaying some of my collection. I like the mirror backed display cases they have at NASCAR diecast stores,but I think they are way too pricey. Do you guys have any pics or ideas? I am thinking of making some wall cabinets,but am not sure how to go about it.

Mike,
You have a lot of options on displaying your cars. It all depends on how far you want to go and how much money you want to spend. We are using a display case that we bought for $65.00 at an auction and several shelves that we built. You can buy nice wood shelf brackets and wood planks to build shelves. Use mirrors were you can or want. Other folks go so far as to build towns to scale to display cars and other things. It's up to you and what you like. It also depends on your budget.

I am also thinking of using some of my posters as a backdrop for some cases.

Good idea Mike. Just bought a complete '74 Mustang II grille that I can display some of our loose 1/64th scale cars on.
