Here is the jestrjef jungle of Cars! Not pictured are my other Disney/Pixar toys from the Incredibles, Toy Story, Monsters Inc. or Wall-e. Can any one find Todd in there??? 😀

While I was savy enough to figure out how to post pictures of my collection … I was not capable of setting the date on the camera … but … who the heck else really knows how to do that either?? Laugh

For those of you looking for todd in there … sorry … it was a trick question 😀 …. he is here …

Say hi to the Monster's Inc. Gang!!

Thanks!! I just recently removed the baby gate that was between my desk and the wall the made this space off limits to little hands. My soon to be 5 year old son and 6 1/2 year old daughter have done very well with not disturbing dad's collection … but in some of the pictures you can see where they have moved the dust I was displaying!!

Loved seeing your collection again. I'm going to post mine here when I finish opening the Cars 1 and Mater Tales stuff. That might not be until March next year though. I can't wait until my wife starts complaining about Bobby Jack's Cars everywhere, I will then show her yours!

Jazzy, that's a very nice set up! One can definitely tell you put considerable time and effort into each section of your display. I like the St Louis Cardinals and Florida Gators custom haulers too. But where did you get those white step displays? Or did you make them yourself?

Thanks, Jake! Those are spice racks I found at Bed, Bath and Beyond. I think they were about $7 each. They are three levels and have a cool non-slip rubberized insert on each level. They work really well! If you want a picture of just the riser, I can shoot one over to you later. I seem to remember they even had a couple different sizes.

Heck, maybe I can sell them to you …. after eye-balling those Fan Stands … I might have to find a way to incorporate a couple of those … it will help me open up some space for Cars 2!! 😀

BTW, Met would be very upset that you did not mention the custom TFAD Hauler, Racer and Pitty! 😉

Showed Bobby Jack pictures of your collection this morning. Thought he would want all the stuff he is missing but I was wrong. Cool thing about being three was he was not jealous at all and it made him want to play with his own cars some more!

Love the pictures of your collection. WOW you have some great Cars stuff!
I especially like the scenes you have setup. Now that's the way to display Cars 😀

jestrjef,
I know what you mean about finding a place for Cars 2 setups. I had to buy a curio cabinet to put my Barbie dolls in so I could have room for Cars 2 displays. As soon as I get the DVD, I'll start making some movie scenes. Until then, I just have them grouped together on the shelves.

Wow, Jestr, it's so cool to see your set up, thanks! It was really fun to see the fabled Texas Tea custom at the end as well. I had no idea who actually owned that, I only saw it when it was auctioned off a while back. Anyway, great great great display. I really liked the creative use of found materials too, like the individual display cases for the piston cup racers. I will definitely be showing this to Jr. Manifold; he's going to love it!

That is a good idea for those Piston Cup Race Cars. We might get those boxes for ours. I might want to wait until they don't get played with as much though…

Thanks, Mike! I have Texas Tea #3 …. Met has #1 …. and #2 …. well … I think the original owner sold it to some one in Europe. I went back to dig up the original post …

Bobbyjack, you can still find some of those connect-o-boxes at Big Lots and TRU's. They work pretty darn well. I put all the Rubber Tire Racers in there … and a few other special ones. I am going to need to track down a few more for the Cars 2 RTR's. 😎
