Brand X that I like

Just the castings I like.


(3) Does price have any influence on how you buy, or will you "buy it because you like it" regardless of the price?
I'll buy it if I like it, and the price is fair. If not I'll wait until I move to Canada, and open up 50 cases per store for $1 a car.


(4) What is your #1 favorite JL casting?
Any 1st generaton Camaro.


(5) How long have you been collecting JL's?
Since 1995.

(1) After JL, what's the next most popular brand you collect? I guess right now it's Jada, but only for the Ford COEs for some projects I got cookin' :devil:


(2) Do you concentrate on specific castings, or do you prefer to buy the complete series? Neither. For example, I bought 3 of the 4 castings from the recent Working Class series. (or is that being specific? :freak: )


(3) Does price have any influence on how you buy, or will you "buy it because you like it" regardless of the price? Listen, I'm not independently wealthy. There are some pieces I'd like to fill some holes, but I don't want holes in my wallet!


(4) What is your #1 favorite JL casting? '69 Impala (today, anyway :tongue: )


(5) How long have you been collecting JL's?
7 years

Where's my lovely parting gift?? :hat:

Matchbox but not to the extent of JL.

Specific castings but some sets too.

(3) Does price have any influence on how you buy, or will you "buy it because you like it" regardless of the price?

'69 Impala now. Was the '63 Impala, pretty predictable huh?

(5) How long have you been collecting JL's?

Hot Wheels. Yeah, you want to make something of it???

(2) Do you concentrate on specific castings, or do you prefer to buy the complete series?

Specific castings, and only variations that I like. I have a couple series I'm trying to finish, but I think those 3 or 4 I have working are it for me.

(3) Does price have any influence on how you buy, or will you "buy it because you like it" regardless of the price?

I will buy what I like, regardless of the price, within reason. I will not get into the gotta have it now bidding thing. I wait for the prices to drop or I don't get that particular item.

(4) What is your #1 favorite JL casting?

#853 of course (Shelby Cobra Daytona for those without a clue. :) )



(5) How long have you been collecting JL's?

I used to pick them up for trade bait, since 1998, but started collecting JLs in 2000 or so and seriously in 2001-2002.

(3) Does price have any influence on how you buy, or will you "buy it because you like it" regardless of the price? Sometimes the prices are ok, but impulse buying is my vice :devil:


(4) What is your #1 favorite JL casting? Toss up between the CJ-5 :dude: and the Landcruiser :cool:

7 years in animal years :tongue:

Probably Jada because they are coming out with the most product right now

(2) Do you concentrate on specific castings, or do you prefer to buy the complete series?
I try not to collect duplicates of the same castings with poor results. My goal would be have castings of many different real cars.

(3) Does price have any influence on how you buy, or will you "buy it because you like it" regardless of the price?
I will buy what I like

(4) What is your #1 favorite JL casting?
I would say Cobra Daytona

(5) How long have you been collecting JL's?
I would say a bit before the 10th anniversary cars came out, not exactly sure

(1) After JL, what's the next most popular brand you collect? There isn't one. I was really into the direct mail Matchboxes, but they're gone. I have been buying up all of the CARS pieces.


(2) Do you concentrate on specific castings, or do you prefer to buy the complete series? I used to buy the whole series, but I can't fit them anymore, so now I just buy what I like.


(3) Does price have any influence on how you buy, or will you "buy it because you like it" regardless of the price?
Of course price influences me. I don't need these cars, I like them. I need to pay my mortgage and my car payment.

(4) What is your #1 favorite JL casting? Too hard to call - The Munster's Coach has gotta be up there. The 1968 GT500, the 1971 Mach 1.....I could go on and on.


(5) How long have you been collecting JL's?
I guess about 11 years

1950-51 Split Window Bug! SWEET! The 1960 Transporter is a close second with the 1979 Convertable bringing up a very respectable third.
