That one in the wooden case has got to be worth something! And the others look mint too.

Even if you can't get your hands on them, make sure they don't go home with some guy for his kid to drive under a bus!

HOLY CRAP !! It's an RC barn find. The special edition car in the wooden box is big money to a collector. I remember seeing these sold at $500 +.
The 2 F1 cars are both very desirable. Ferrari F310 and Mclaren MP4-13. Any f1 collector would love to have un-molested examples in his collection. If I could afford it now I'd be throwing offers at you for them. There's a few on ebay right now, each selling for 250-300 range. I haven't seen one of the special edition cars for sale in quite awhile.

Wow...looked on ebay again. There's a special edition car being offered at $975 bucks !!! May not sell easy but that's the collector market.

theyre all mint. never been driven. the tires arent even glued to the rims.




the 2 f1 cars were in a display case for more than a few years. the 300sl was tucked away in storage.


theyre not mine to take, but theyre probably going into another storage location. who knows whats gonna happen

The fact that the F1 cars have been on display makes them worth a little less. Open display pieces tend to suffer from handling and the open air. I'm sure they're still really nice though. Be glad to consider buying them if the boss wants to sell.

Those are very nice cars. I am sure that they have been sitting in a display case out of the sun light and grooping hands so the value has not dropped at all but may have even gone up.
Hopefully they remain on display for others to enjoy for a long time.
