Much to the chagrin of our wives and significant others, a large diecast collection is often a given when you’re involved with a car enthusiast. It’s a way for us to pay homage to the vehicle(s) we own or wish we could own. Not many of us can have a garage filled with dozens of our favorite rides, but it’s easy to accomplish said garage in scale with a killer diecast collection. Naturally there are diecast sizes and price ranges to suit any living situation and budget. From the smallest of diecasts, like Hot Wheels at just a buck or so each, to extremely high-end hand-built models that run into the thousands, we’ve seen many over the years and even added some to our collection.

The folks at Acme Trading have been feeding us a steady diet of diecast goodness over the years and its latest offering is this first in series 1:64 scale 1966 Ford Mustang Shelby G.T. 350 that comes from its new collaboration with Caffeine and Octane. This new exclusive series features rides showcased in the now famous Dunwoody, Georgia event that is held the first Sunday of the month at the Perimeter Mall. You’ll often find over 2,000 beautiful machines attending and up to 15,000 spectators each month and over its 11 years has grown to be the largest monthly car show in North America. You might have even caught an episode of Caffeine and Octane TV, which is filmed and produced in-house and airs on the NBC Sports Network channel of your favorite cable provider. You can find more info about Caffeine and Octane at www.caffeineandoctane.com.
