Can you drive it to work? I can't see paying that much for a toy you can't even play with.

Now it is making me wonder if I have any toys of value left from my childhood. Ok, you got me, I still play with them from time to time. haha

Someone wanted that really badly! It's very cool. I've never seen one either.

Collecting can be a disease. In some cases, once you have it, you can't be stopped. In the mind of the person who bought it, he/she had no choice but to buy it. What if you never get another chance for one of those? You wouldn't want a rival collector to get it when you can get it first would you?

Disease!, did you say, DISEASE?

Yep, I would say some of those folks appearing on PICKER'S have a disease, something isn't right in their minds, IMO.

I have no clue as to whether the buyer of the XR7 toy has such though, may be a member with sound reasons to buy it.

Ill admit i got a small collecting problem.I got over 150 1/64 and 1/18 cougars in both my curio cabinets, night stands and on a shelf.But i dont have 2 of the same.But i am winding down cause there isnt much i dont have cause there nice to own but not like getting in the real thing n cruising.Will they become collectible in the years?Perhaps but to see someone spend 450.00 + on a diecast or even a original hot wheels is crazy.


thanks

Unsolicited advice from a guy who has dealt in collectible for 25+ years. If you are buying as an investment, you are making a mistake. The truly spectacular and valuable collections I have seen over the years, and there have been a lot, were all assembled by collectors with a true passion for what they saved. 99 out of 100 people that I've dealt with who bought collectibles because they thought they were going to make money turned out to be big losers.

Basically, if you buy it, and it makes you happy, and it doesn't hurt anyone, who can argue, as long as you're happy...

:lol2:9 out of 10 men who tried camels ---- prefer women!

Yeah - best advice I ever heard was only collect it because you like it - it's to much of a fad most of the time. Look how bad baseball cards tanked!!

Amen

I would have brought it too if I didn't have to rebuild the 428

Current Cougar toy inventory is approaching 400 - and they keep releasing them - right now its M2's new range of 68's and 70's

Just picked up 2 x 1:43 scale transporters to display the 1:43 Sunstar / Eagle Race and variations
