    I had a bunch of Hot Wheels as a kid. I've sold a lot, but am keeping about 20 of my favorites in the black tire case (if you know Hot Wheels, you know what I mean). The Redline series from the 60s and early 70s fetch good money. I've sold quite a few for $150 to $175.

    I still have most of my 60s and 70s era Matchbox cars collection, many with the original boxes. These aren't as collectible as the Hot Wheels, though.

    yes they are...the #13 dodge wreck truck in reverse colors (supposed to be yellow car/green bed) early models had the colors reversed and BP wanted it the other way...most one sold for was $12,000...they still pull $5,000 plus these days

    i have some worth $1500 up to $2000 each

    check ebay...you may have one or two matchbox worth some nice money

    yes...if they were from 68 to 73 they have the most value of this era...even the beat up ones have value as the restoration guys buy them to restore and resell

    if they are from the 90s or newer not too much values...but some are worth money...check ebay sold listings

    I always wanted a Red Baron when I was a kid back in the early '70s. I don't remember if I ever managed to get one. I think i may have but really don't remember for sure.

    This subject hurts a little. As a kid, I read an article about the value of collectable toys in one of my dad's financial magazines. When I was seven or eight I started buying Hotwheels and Matchbox cars with my meager allowance and I kept them in their original packages, unopened. When my brother and the other neighborhood kids were playing with their toys I was content to sock mine away like money in the bank. When I went away to college my dad got remarried. The kid that came with the new wife got my old room since I lived across the country. She made herself right at home in my old room, opened up all of the collector cars I had been saving and ran them hard in the driveway. The story only goes downhill from there.

    I was a little to old for hot wheels when they came out. Just recently my 2 grandsons came out to my house for the week. They are 9 and 7. These guys are super spoiled, they have every cool toy, bike, and remote control device you can get, IPads and all. They live on the ocean in a beautiful home with a huge boat they go fishing in. I told my son I didn’t have any toys at my house for them to play with, He told me to buy a few Hot Wheels and there’d be happy. For the week they were here the never let those little cars alone. They took them to bed with them! Some things never change I guess.

    I loved hot wheels when I was a kid. Had a few nifty cars and a lot of orange track. My cousins had not one but two of the black tire carrying cases. I was so jealous.

    As crazy as it sounds I still have a bunch of the hot wheels in first few ads (60's -70's). They are in a couple of the plastic wheel shaped hot wheel holders.
