The biggest model car event of the year

John O’Neil – MCHOF

The Model Car Hall of Fame 2018 Awards are here! With 24 Inductees, this year marks the biggest ever for the Hall. We have our first ever Inductees in new categories including Slot Cars, Automotive Art, Model Trucks and many more.

The best part? It’s you, the collectors we have to thank. Together with a larger, more talented and more diverse Selection Committee, you cast more than 4000 votes to induct all the best for 2018, another milestone for the Hall of Fame.

Model Truck of the Year

For the first time, you can also watch our awards yourself and dig into a bit of the history of each Inductee. You can find awards videos for each inductee on the new Model Car Hall of Fame Youtube channel.

I was all excited last year when Matchbox won the popular vote but not only weren’t elected into the Hall but didn’t even get an honorable mention.

I was even thinking of making a trip to visit the Museum but that’s not going to happen.  I don’t think they care one whit about the collectors.


Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
