I decided to open this thread to see if anybody else would agree with it and also and most important, to check if the rules of the site allows it, we don't want to break any rules here.
This is the idea:
Is just my guess but I believe that most of the members here are car lovers and probably, I'm guessing, they own some kind of auto memorabilia collection.
My question to SMC is: Could be possible and allowable to open a trade forum where members can post whatever they have to offer and trade between themselves?
Of course no responsibility whatsoever is taken by SMC or the owners and administrators of the site. That would be only something between members.
I do have a diecast collection of about 1200 items 90% of them in 1:18 some 1:24 and some 1:64, I also have lots of original movie posters like GONE IN 60 SECONDS (1974) , THE CAR, FAST & FURIOUS, VANISHING POINT etc..., lots of NASCAR stuff, action figures, license plates from different states and so on and so forth.
I'd love to trade some of my items for some kind of auto memorabilia from a different country or something not so easy to find in the US like different license plate for my collection or some diecast model that is not easy to find here.
No money exchange hands in this idea and considering that things are tight all over the world, trading would be a great option to acquire something different.
I know for fact that some items are easy to find in Europe, Asia, Australia and others are easy to be found in the US.
Members can show the items they want to trade, with pictures and description, negotiate between themselves, each one pays for the correspondent shipping costs. Rules and regulations would be dictated by SMC and the administrators.
It's just an idea and if it's not allowed that's ok too, I just thought it would be a great interaction between members. I remember seen not too long ago a thread about members diecast collections if I'm not mistaken.
I'd love to hear first from SMC if that would be a possibility and from other members to see if anybody else is on board.
That may be one of my stupidest ideas ever, but ohhh well, I decide to give it a shot.
Thanks everybody for taking the time.
