I've got a custom made wood cabinet for mine. It features 13 shelves. I't is truly a work of art and is proper for my JL's. I open them all and keep them in the trays thay you get in the Hot Wheels "soft" cases. There is room on the sides so I can store five 12 car trays or I can have felt and bracekts to hold them. It will hold 60+ cars per level. I've filled one and I'm begging the builder to make one more. Email [email protected] for picts. If there is a demand to see them I'll put it on my website.

Nice Rob. My display cases are not as nice as those. Mine are all corrugated boxes that have no openings in them that allow you to view your collection. I think I like your idea better. Someday I'll figure out a way to display at least part of what I have.

Nice displays! Hey, I see a little itty-bitty tiny four-car case in there that looks familiar!

;)

I just wrapped up recasing 17 WL's in matching wood two-side cases, so now they all match each other. I need to get some updated pictures...

I have a pair in my room just like it! (from same nice guy) I use them for chrome cars, for now, but eventually I'll refresh 'em with something else. :)

As they fill up, I'll try to take more pictures of the individual cases.... mirror back cases are a pain to get a good picture of.

Very cool displays you have there - nice collection too!! I love that "Car Show" display idea.

I am gradually in the process of "refining" my displays. Many of my cars are cluttered up on the shelves right for lack of good display case. It all displays so much better when it gets thinned out.

Same here with the little red X's. They look nice though.
I just found out yesterday that a guy in my company makes display cases. I heard they were nice but kinda pricey, but that was for 1:24 scale. Gonna look him up and see what happens. I dont normally open mine but I have been on some of the new releases. And I sometimes buy two of what I like just to have one to "play with".
