    This is a model of a car that was banned by NASCAR because of the confederate flag and for having the Sons of Confederate Veterans as a sponsor. Belonged to a member of the SCV and has never been out of the box. Not sure what to do with it...

      You can't erase history and pretend it didn't happen just because you don't like it. It's still history. I don't believe in this black history and woman's history month bs...its all OUR history.
    2. Watchsearcher Watchsearcher, 6 months ago
      Like dav2no1 says, it’s history. As to your question of what to do with it: I suggest putting it in a box along with news stories about the car being banned from racing and some history of the Civil War. Pack it away for your descendants to find and be educated by....be sure to include your own personal opinions about the issues involved....if you research your own ancestry (as I did), you might find if you had ancestors who fought for one side or another in the Civil War...that’s interesting history.
      Finding your box would be a little treasure trove of information to your descendants years from now.
      So, that’s what I would do with it....
      Keep us posted about your own decision.

      I’m certainly aware of my own family history and I appreciate items meant to be swept under the revisionist rug, as it were... As I have no one to leave any historical tidbits to I was just wondering if there was any monetary value or if I should just put it in a box of donation items. While I appreciate the historical value I am cleaning out an entire house filled with WWII and Vietnam memorabilia as there is no one to leave this type of thing to once I’m gone...it will all wind up in the trash if I don’t find something to do with it or someone who will appreciate it.

      I understand. I hope you get some good advise here. Some of my friends buy and sell all kinds of things on Facebook Marketplace...check that out....at least you could make some money from your items that way. The rules here prevent anyone buying, selling, or discussing prices but maybe you’ll get suggestions of what to do with your items.
      Good luck and thanks for posting!

      Hi, BeadedLady. :-)

      It can be overwhelming going through a large estate.

      While this was written about vintage sewing machines, expert D.A. Brumleve gives some advice about eBay:

      *snip*

      (3) Post your machine on the eBay.com auction website for $9 with no reserve. Don't misspell "sewing machine". If your auction attracts bids, you'll soon know what it's worth at that time in that venue to those bidders. If it doesn't attract any bids, it's not worth even $9 at that time in that venue to those bidders.

      (4) Watch eBay.com for the sale of similar machines. Bookmark the auction pages and go back and see what the final selling price is, assuming the machines actually sell and any reserve is met. How does your machine really compare with the sold machine? Be critical! Could you take pictures as well as the dealer who sold on eBay? Could you write as good a description? Are you willing to put in the time taking those pictures, writing that description, doing the accounting, and packaging this machine for safe shipment? If not, divide the eBay price by four and go back to your antique dealer with a printout of the auction page and a counter-offer.

      Here's the same item at Worthpoint:

      *snip*

      This is a NIB Ford Thunderbird race car, #62, It is gray, blue and red with the number '62' on the top of car and the Sons of Confederate Veterans logo on the hood and '1-800-MY-DIXIE' on the back fender. The box has never been opened but shows shelve wear. It was manufactured in 1994 by Revell-Monogram, Inc. for RSDK Hobbies. One side of box shows sponsors: Dixie Gun Works, TIMCO, Inc., Ruffin Flag Col., Henson Distributors. Each end of box has the Sons of Confederate Veterans logo.

      And here's one on eBay:

      *snip*

      REVELL #62 1-800-MY-DIXIE FORD SONS OF CONFEDERATE VETERANS PROMO CLAY YOUNG

      *snip*

      As it happens, one of our CW regulars has the same item:

      https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/251902-banned-nascar-scv-diecast

      So perhaps he'll chime in with some advice.

      Good luck. :-)

    9. josscee, 6 months ago

    10. couldbe couldbe, 6 months ago
      Why cant you just throw away the box and give a child the car and tell them to go out and play ...rather then you come in here with silly questions like oh my what shell I do ...really ....I tell ya why,...... this is a "fake post".... a 5 year old could put out a better post in their sleep huh.... keramikos,....lol

      There are dealers who specialize in estate liquidations. They will often come to a house, pack everything up and then sell it for you, or host a sale at the house. Not the best way for you to make the most money from it, but if you just want it gone and to have the work in making it all gone pay for itself, it is a good way to go. Google "estate liquidators" in your town, or region or check the yellow pages in the phone book.

      kwqd, That sounds like an excellent idea. :-)
