Default How do you store/display your cars?

As I go deeper down the rabbit hole I find that I'm running out of room to store all my cars. Currently I am using wire shelves but those are expensive and take up more space than I would like. Looking for ideas on a compact wall mounting or freestanding solution. I have a few ideas but as always mine may not be the best. Maybe someone else has a better cheaper solution I didnt think of. They are all mostly 10th onroad but also have some 10th/8th off as well.

Using Brick Snap on holders from Home Depot to hang my retired cars over my fire place

Proper way to store/display them is not to let the tires sit on a surface for long periods to avoid tire-flat spots. Placing them on RC car stands or removing their wheels are the best way to avoid such issue.

Thanks. I was aware of that and is part of the reason I want to move away from the wire shelves. Went to Home Depot today and looked at different solutions. They have the wall mount system with slotted "L" brackets which I do like but would have to make some sort of base for. I just wouldn't use the wood and space them about 6" apart.






For about the same price I could get 1" copper tube and make a frame with T adapters going up it. Kinda like the photo below only one sided and made of full copper. I looked at PVC but to get it strong enough I would have to use thicker tubes and it would look odd. Looks are important! I guess for the shelf part I could use PVC but it wasn't much cheaper than the copper.
