I was talking to an old friend last nite that is 60, I'm 57. He has boxes of old model cars (built and unbuilt) that we had growing up in the 50's & 60's sitting in the attic of his parent's old house. Knowing him to be somewhat of a hoarder, I don't think they will ever see the light of day! That got me wondering, What are some of the most valuable kits in the world today?

Alot of the old drag cars,muscle cars and annuals from say the 60`s go for big bucks.

If he wants to sell any and you don't want them let me know?

Terry, I'm still working on him, but he still has the first bycicle his parents ever gave him,if that tells you anything! I think it would be easier to get into fort knox than that attic.

Think there are more older builders who have stuff put away than most realize , being 58 myself got some I have never wanted to part with dating back many years . Not a matter of what I could sell them for but more sentimental value.
