Just wondering what you guys like to collect and keep. I like to collect old soda bottles, and metal lunch boxes. I also have a knack for the usual baseball/football cards. What do you like to collect? Post photos of your collection if possible!

Here are my lunch boxes:


And here is the collection of bottles so far. I still have 4+ 55 gallon drums full of bottles I need to get out, and clean :( I collected them at my grandma and grandpas old farm house. Grandpa collected them, and gave them to me.



My 1969 10-2-4 Dr pepper bottle. Still has the original cap and contents.

Oh boy. Here we go.

I collect cars. 1/18 scale to be most specific. I have over 120 of them. Currently packed in boxes though as I have nowhere to put them. Hopefully after Christmas, I'll get some shelves put up in my den. Then out come the cars.

Also, since age 10 or so, I've collected nutcrackers. Authentic ones. They've always been gifts, but I have around 20 of them. One, even signed by the master.

In the last year, I've started collecting Bowie knives. LOVE them! I have gathered up nearly 20 of them in various degrees of value and quality.

And, last but not least, obscure truck parts. I swear, I can't have enough useless truck parts. Check my signature for my 1960 Chevy to see what I mean. It's nuts.

What up Cody,
Just turned 40 so I am super nostalgic as of late. I've been collecting watches (swatches as of late), I like Hawaiian shirts, Betty Page memorbilia. and have had a decent collection of Zippo lighters since I was in the Marines.

The RAMBO lunch box was the last metal box made worth in the range of $75...

Tyco 440 slot cars and track. I'm up to a 90' track set-up now with cliff-hangers, loops, high-bank curves, corkscrews. I'd like to find an intersection for true figure-eight racing.

It's a blast hammering down beer, setting up track configurations, and doing some safe, indoor drunk-drivng.

Hey Jamie... want all mine too? I must have over 1,000 Hot Wheels, still in original packages. All mint or near mint. Most from around 2000 - 2004. I quit collecting them because I was DROWNING in them. Ran out of walls to hang them on. And, I was spending a frick'n fortune! :laugh:

oh my......dont start me on this again :ugh:

PM me if you want to get rid of pieces of it. I didn't really collect to make full sets or series, I collected basically just what I liked, muscle cars or rare ones. Treasure hunts for sure.

I don't collect anything but I sure "accumulate" a lot of crap that I don't need. :32:
