I recognize most of them right off, but I do see a few that no doubt are odd ball lesser known makers.

Quite a few fairly common MBX castings with some rather interesting (Code 2?) promo liveries! A couple of Corgi jrs, including a Jeep I wouldn't mind a copy of. The Camaro, Firebird and Z car in the top right corner...I don't recognize the wheels. Are those RC?

The Matchboxes (and two MotorMax cherry pickers) are ColorComps (so yes, Code 2). The mystery cars are all Kidco Lock-Ups (all have their original keys, too!).

The yellow MR2, those sure look like Summer wheels to me...should make Dean pleased. The black Caddy MBX, judging by the wrapping it is one of the Code 2s...what is the story behind it?

Yellow MR2 is actually a Road Champs. And yup, that's also a ColorComp but I don't know the story behind it. I think it's one of Charlie Mack's promos (as are the Unocal 76 tanker, driving school Magnum, & TV truck) but I'm not 100% sure. But the car is gift-wrapped which I think is cute.

French Renault 5 (LeCar to the USA) four door made by Majorette. I have it listed as a 1979 but it could be off by a few years ('79 was the first for the four door 5).

I do have a few Yugos though - one Hugo from the Cars movie and one Metalbox made when the real car was still new. We have a thread featuring one of the Metalbox examples (not mine though - mine is black):

Support your local demo derby.

I don't think I've ever seen a truly 10+ mint Kidco before.

Case #2 side A.

Yes, I know one of the cars is blacked out. It's something that doesn't exist. Don't ask about it (seriously, no private messages or replies because I will flat out ignore them). It doesn't exist. That's my final word on the subject.

Tin Snails, a Majo Olds, a couple of interesting VW Bugs, and a couple of Corgi jrs (Escort? and Rover).

What's the white van with the Summer-esque, ne Road Champs wheels with "Leak Detection" livery? The blue "School Bus" on the bottom is interesting too.

white van is a Corgi Jr '87 Ford Transit.
blue School Bus is an Efsi Fiat 242 van.


I am enjoying seeing your collection, Sean. I'm not sure my OCD self could sleep if my brands were jumbled like that. :lol:

I gave serious consideration to organizing the cars as I went but realized it would be a waste of time and space. I would be leaving Jammers half full for cars I don't have, and constantly re-arranging every time I got new cars. As I go through and document the cars, each one is being labeled with it's case number, what side it's on, and which position (1-24*).

*Or 1-25. 25 you say? But there are only 24 slots per side. Very true, but twice now I've fit three tiny cars into the extra long space so for those two sides, they get a 1-25 (the rest are 1-24).

Heh...with some really creative stacking of certain cars like Ford GTs and Ferraris, you can get two to a regular space, plus 4 or 5 in the long space...pushing hard on 100 models in one Jammer. I don't recommend it, but it *can* be done!

BTW...don't do that with the HW 65 Mustang convertibles. It will look like they fit, but later you will find the windshields pushed down. From experience...

Another nice group of mostly Corgi jrs (and Huskys). The taxi top left...what is that one? I also see an early blackwall (technically transitional) HW Maxi Taxi, in extremely nice looking shape, at least from what I can see. What is the story attached to that one?

Taxi is a Matchbox Mercedes 450SEL and the 442 is a purchase from Pegers. ;)

Great score, those don't just come around in that condition...they are usually beat to pieces.
