      I can't believe they are only $2 admission, the train show I used to attend was up to $7 or $8 admission, though they used to send regular attenders like me a $1 off coupon before the show, but still this one out there is only $2 and it has the added attraction of some diecast design personalities going to be there too.

        The "show" used to be in another city and had another name.... it was called the "Rack & Cue" because that's where it was held, at a pool hall. When the organizer of the Rack & Cue passed away, this guy, Mike the Diecast Guy took over and eventually relocated the event. It happens once every month or two. I haven't been for a few years now (usually doing honey do's on weekends). The price has always been $2 per entry. At the Rack & Cue there were maybe 12 to 15 sellers. I'm not sure how many sellers there are these days. The "guest designers" are all living somewhere locally, so it's easy for them to attend, and have been doing so for many years. A couple of members from MCCH and Swifty's used to attend regularly or sort of.... Kimmo, Jeff Koch, Atencio, to name a few.

          Oh I see Michael, yeah, I guess that was a relatively small show with 12-15, the train show I was attending was probably nearer to 40 or more vendors, though there were just a handful that carried much diecast, since the focus was trains. I do remember all those you mention from over at MCCH, I think Kimmo used to participate over at Swifty's for awhile, but hadn't seen him post in years there, even before moving here.

            It would be so much fun to go to a diecast car show but I am a long way from LA. I think all three of those collectors that Michael mentioned go all the way back to MCCH days. I know I traded and sold models with all three of them over the years. Jeff still writes columns for Hemmings Classic Cars and has an occasional article (some on diecast cars) on some of Hemmings online stuff.
