I tend to buy black 1:1 cars most often and really like some yellow cars. I have stayed away from yellow in 1:1s because of the usual burn-your-eyeballs yellow of most cars. MY toy/model collection is a different story however and about 20% of my 1:64s are black and 10% are yellow. My 1:64 collection is just around 200 cars so the pictures included show almost the entire collecion of that color. Not included are the carded items that will never be released.

Anyone else collect certain colors either by design or by natural tendencies?

My stuff is whatever colors are in the release I'm collecting.
no favorites, the whole spectrum of colors is represented.I know alot of folks, including one whole diecast board, that avoid Yellow like the plague.
Personally, I like a Bright Yellow Car.
its red that I avoid. dont like red 1:1 vehicles.

Oh, and would you send me that little yellow Dart?
Here's one I forgot about that hits both black and yellow!

That Dart is one of my favorite yellow cars. Has to stay at home :(

What do you mean "burn-your-eyeballs" yellow?


That is my 1:1. Actually, the PT is mine too. I like burning eyeballs I guess. :D

Trucks look great in BYEBs Yellow but picture a 2003 Sable in that color :( Not a pretty sight and probably the reason they never offered it in the Sable. :tongue:

Hey Galaxieman,

Is that #32 stocker from RCCA? Is that a '64 Galaxie? I have a few of the '63 stockers from RCCA...Wasn't sure if they had a series with '64's. :confused:
They are Racing Champions and 64s. The 32 car is a Tiny Lund, the 21 is Marvin Panch both of which I want to keep/ You are welcome to any one of the 26 Curtis Turner, 10 Buddy Baker or 57 Dick May. Just send your address and I'll get it out to you at the end of this week. :thumbsup:

I enjoy collecting a variety of colors, even some I would never buy in 1/1. On the other hand, my favorite colors for 1/1 are black, white and red...and sometimes blue.

These colors do catch my eye when seen in diecast, or any nice combination of those colors, or combined with other complimentary colors. I think black and yellow really work well togther, or black and red, red and white combos.

In other words you like any color at all, just any color at all :wave:
