About South Texas Diecast Car Collectors

Based in San Antonio, South Texas Diecast was born in 2001, at a Jim’s Restaurant, during a mini-get-together with a couple of collectors talking about the hobby and trading a few cars.

The idea– To inform fellow collectors about upcoming releases, to help fellow collectors find cars for their collection, to provide families a fun diecast atmosphere, and to promote diecast collecting in a positive way. A club by collectors for collectors.

The club– Based in San Antonio, Texas. Meetings are usually held on the third Saturday of each month. The purpose of the meeting is to welcome new members, communicate the latest news in the diecast world, and provide an open forum for questions and answers. Before and after each meeting the club participates in a buying/trading/selling/racing session. The purpose of this session is to help out fellow collectors acquire diecast related items for their collections, give collectors a place to sell or trade their unwanted or unneeded diecast items and to race your favorite cars.

The website– In May of 2002, we started our website which included a small database of Hot Wheels cars.  The database has grown through the years and is used by thousands of visitors daily.  At the end of November 2015, we moved our database over to hobbyDB.
