    The R/S 500 1/2 as the cars and the story are excellent, something very different!

      It's contest time, day 5! Thanks to a gift, PixarCarsDiecast.com is giving away a banner made for the world premiere of the first Cars movie which was May 26, 2006 at Lowe's Motor Speedway in Charlotte, North Carolina.
      Each day this week you will have an opportunity to enter to win... today, June 19, 2020 you can enter by posting a picture of something that is part of your Cars collection.
      See my sample entry below.
      Postage is the responsibility of the contest winner.
      I plan to hold a random drawing on Monday June 22, 2020.
      Thank you for our prize donation... you may enter on the Facebook page as well as on the website

          I have lots from my collection I could nominate (including the custom PCD racer!) but the time travel and wedding day gift set stands out for me. Itís partly because a family member was in the states visiting Disney when this set was released and was kind enough to pick them up for me. This was a big favour as they are relatively large sets and the luggage space was limited. I particularly like the Stanley diecast, he looks awesome in the sepia colour finish and the wedding day Stanley has some great details as well as the honour of being the founder of Radiator Springs. Overall itís well executed set with a great theme and attractive to display.

            Those 2 sets are among my all time favorites, VANDANCE... so nice of a family member to help you out when they were visiting Disney... they were very limited in production and contained all unreleased Cars... anyone who wants one of those sets today is going to be paying a lot of money for them.

              Thanks Chris, I like to think I have good taste! It was a question off the right place at the right time and a big thanks to my brother in law for his help on with these. He didnít stop there, he also got all the Star Wars Cars releases that were out at the time. I got the box sets, 2 packs and all of the singles. He also picked up the goofy and Micky LMQ gift pack too! It was an amazing surprise when he returned with all these exclusive sets. I did ask him to get as much as he could for me and he literally did! They cost me a small fortune then but well worth the investment as you say.

                Wow, very nice Cars! cac1959 - would love to eventually own 1 of those custom racers, must admit I did not know about them until reading your post! Vandance - lucky you, the time travel and wedding day gift sets are part of my Holy Grail set of Cars - unattainable, hopefully one day (with enough funds of course!). Beautiful colour scheme on the time travel set.
                My entry for Day 5 - the little Honda Civic Max Sacar. If I'm not wrong, he was only ever available from a Race Day Fan 4-car box set which I've only been able to find once, making him a rare car for me. I'm a fan of all things Japan including Japanese cars, so Max with his Japanese flag holds a special place in my collection.

                  Thank you to all who entered... between this thread and the contest threads on the PCD Facebook page, there were 191 official entries (not counting my 5 sample entries)... I've created a spreadsheet which I hope to verify later today to make sure I did not leave anyone out... I'll then print the spreadsheet, fold the entries, box them up, and ask my 7 year old grandson to pull out the winning entry... I've got to get through the work day today first though... Many thanks to our friend who donated the prize.
