Anything over 1000, $ or £, is still fairly rare in the slot car collecting world. I heard a few of the Slot Classics were going far far more a few years ago, but don't know the situation now.

Among the vintage cars, there are a few that have gone for over 5 grand, but very few. A pair of BZ Chaparral 2Es in used condition with boxes went for over $7K last year ... but they were the first genuine production versions ever found (2 more popped up shortly thereafter!).

Guys, we're still small fish in the antique toy pond: the Marklin and other fancy German boats from the early 20th century can go for 50 grand or so, not to mention certain teddy bears, early tinplate toys, etc.

No Bob, I have enough problem writing on the lines without having to go between them!

The jury's still out on whether slots will become a real antique toy for your great grandchildren, or if, when the baby boomers die out in 20 years or so, it will all go in the trash bin without a second thought.

The high-value toys from the early 20th century seem to be contemporary high-value items for rich kids... not sure too many of the rustic toys have either survived or maintained any value, at least from that period.

Now, let's talk about Eldon...
