As many of you know over the past year I've seperated from my ex-wife, moved into an apartment with my new girlfriend, then moved into a place we could call home, and had a baby. Over that time I had to sell my whole collection except for some of the things she had gotten me back in 2002 when we were together back then. I have tried to start over a few times but money issues still kept coming back and I had to sell it all over again. I think we have gotten ourselves into a position with my job now that I will be able to resume my hardcore collecting ways once again. Here are 3 pics of what I have now...not much...but it's a good start...

Nice re-start! Boy those Hamlin pieces look really lonely! I like it. You guys will have me collecting Winners Circle stuff yet. They all look great in your collections!

Hey racer if I ever decide on which Bobby Hamilton cars to let go you'll be the first on my list. I know how much those ment to you.
Thanks, I really appreciate the thought. I had almost every 1/64 scale car made for Bobby...I was within 10 or so of having one of each. It'd be hard to ever get back into collecting alot of the stuff I had to sell since I lost so much on them.

Yeah Joker, I did receive it. I'm sorry if I forgot to thank you, I thought I had. But thank you for sending that too me. It was a cool picture to see on here and even cooler when I got it in the mail. I have it on the second shelf of the bookcase with the haulers...it's hard to see an image in the pics but it's the white piece of paper seen in the last pic.

very nice restart sure it will just be a matter of time before you have those back you really want
Thanks. Brandy's already telling me to pick any wall in the living room to hang the cars up for display if I'll start getting back all of my old stuff. She didn't realize how much collecting meant to me when we got back together and didn't really care about all I sold but now that she's heard the stories I had from alot of the cars I collected she regrets that I had to sell everything.

Very nice. It can only get bigger & better as time goes on. I also have had to sell much of my collection a few years back cause of kids hospital bill, cause the family come first. Then start to get some of my collection back alittle at a time. Then last year with the flooding in my area I lost a bunch of my stuff. But I'm gettin it back slowly. So good luck & keep up the dream!

It was very sweet.  However, what you see in my first post is all that I have now.  The links show what I had last year and the year before.

Been there Pal, and am again right now. Almost all of my good stuff is gone. But I'll be back. Keep your chin up. You have one thing goin' for ya. Your woman understands, so it will be a little easier to re-build.
It will take time, but you'll get em' back eventually. That's the fun really anyway, the collecting.

Nice restart Racer.

If you want to get some of the older Stewart WC items, I'll try a make a deal with you if you want. Get in touch with me, as you know I'm gettin' rid of most of mine. I'm just to busy or lazy to start listing it.

Same here Racer, I have a bunch of WC I'm unloading due t0 lack of space, and I know I have some older Tony stuff, including 1/24's, 1/64's and haulers. Let me know if you're interested.
