Collecting Cars Building Collections

Cars are my love but I don’t have enough money to buy every car of my dreams. They help me to experience all types of vehicles. Don’t get me wrong, slot cars can be expensive too. I try to purchase most of them at $25 or less. Every now and then I may deviate if I’m looking for something special but not often. You can keep up with this blog to see how I do it.

eBay is where I like to find most of them.  It’s a good place to start to save money.  Running the cars on a track can be rough with crashes.  Spending $50 on a car that crashes can be upsetting.  Race with cheaper ones and use the other expensive vehicles for display.

Collecting can provide joy in different ways.  There’s no need to let it put you into a bind.  Simple tips on bidding and researching will help you along the way.

Flipping Slot Cars Making Profit

Flipping cars is a way to make a little extra cash.  Slot car lots are a perfect way to do a flip.  Go to eBay and type “slot car lot” in the search box.  This is a way to buy multiple cars at a bulk price.

Look for cars that have 1 day left with 0 bids.  These are the best cars to try and get the best deal on.  Many times at this stage no one is going to bid or they forgot about it.  Don’t bid on the car until there’s only an hour left or below.

Bidding on cars too soon draws attention to the auction.  It seems like if you bid early the auction is shown to more people (personal opinion, not sure if it’s true).

Use a spreadsheet to keep track of cars that you’ve purchased in a lot auction.  Figure out how many cars were in the lot divided by the price.  This is the average price of each car.  List the individual cars in the spreadsheet and the date you purchased them.  This will help later when you go back to sell them, you’ll know what to charge.
