Time to pack up some of my loose collection and bring out fresh ones to display. I just got the shelves emptied - here's what was.

A great mix of styles and brands. Your Mazda Cosmo really caught my eye. I never knew that it was made in 1/64. Thanks for the neat pics.

I love the case, where did you get it?
It's an IKEA item called JARNA and goes for just under $20 in the U.S (in Canada, just under $50 :eek: :rolleyes: ). Solid walnut case, and 2 glass shelves with slots for adjustability (or more shelves). I added 3 glass shelves to each case, and chose not to install the walnut veneer backing.

I just found a cool link about JARNA and diecast. It describes the case's specifics really well. Mine has shelves that slide into slots from the back. On this link, I notice his shelves sit on short steel pins. :confused:

Adding Fresh ones

Yes, I too had a curio in my front room of my house and would display the current collection. I would pack it all up at Christmas time and start fresh the following year. I usually fill up the 100 or so cars by easter or early spring and begin again to move the collection to the plastic tub cemetery in the attic. Tom

It's an Ertl kit of a 1980 Pontiac Bonneville, I think either from Dukes of Hazzard or Smokey and the Bandit. The kit came with generic plastic wheels so JL wheels and rubber tires were swapped in. They color-matched perfectly. :)

Ertl also made the same kit painted white, with blue roof lights. That might be the Dukes one.
