Hot Wheels collectors

I've recently started collecting and am looking for online places to trade/buy/sell but so far my google powers have been proving fruitless. What sites do you use? Also I wouldn't be adverse to seeing your collections and any neat cars you have in your collection. I've been lucky enough to pickup a lot of 5th gens and even a couple super treasure hunts.

There are lots of FB groups you can join to find and collect cars. Ebay is also a decent spot, but just be aware that most ppl on eBay tend to over price them.

I also am into AutoWorld, M2, Johnny Lightning, and a few others. I pretty much collect all things Camaro at this point, plus a few other cool cars like the Hellcats, Vipers, etc...

As this is a Camaro site, I'm just posting my Camaros

Most of the Hot Wheels cars I get 2-3 of each, so I can purposely have an extra or swap with friends who are looking for the same ones..

I've been looking for a 67 C10 Super Treasure Hunt since I started collecting. I refuse to pay ebay scalper pricing.

There are local clubs that you can search for either through Google or the Hot Wheels Collectors website. I've got so many right now that I had to separate them into three bins, one of which has about 400 or so that I'm gonna try taking to one of the local clubs near me and trading for some others I don't have. It can get outta control real fast if you don't limit what you collect.

I usually just look at them and if I like it I buy it. I very rarely buy more than one of any car, aside from variations. Can't wait to find the orange Camaro, that I will buy two of. One to keep carded and one to open. I doubt I will ever be one to have a collection that is stored away, it doesn't make sense to me to do that. I open and display most of mine in the mancave.

Best time to find em is Thanksgiving to Christmas. Wal Mart and Dollar stores get tons of em. Suffer til Easter with the peg hangers!! Best deal is to find local groups to trade with, or if you buy on Ebay, get 4 or more to make the shipping reasonable.
