Myself I purchased an Exoto Ford GT40 X-1 Roadster from Ireland so that is my car that has traveled the farthest to be added to my collection. 

Just a note this car is still in the process of shipping and is now in New York waiting to clear customs and continue its trip down to Florida to me. 

I have several Diecast cars that have shipped from California to me so that makes California to Florida is the farthest in America.

I'm in Orange County California and I've purchased models from Michigan, Georgia, New Jersey, Florida and Vancouver B.C.
I do prefer to see them in hand first though.

Before Covid, I travelled a lot. Picked up in person. Buby Toys Peugeot 504 in Ushuaia, Argentina, Norev Audi A6 in Cape Town, South Africa and Micro Models Jaguar XK-120s in Sydney, Australia.  All are 1/43 scale. Larger stuff I leave to the mail. Imported, many of us have received models from China, Russia and India.

I have a Bird of Prey on order from Klingon Prime but I suspect it got lost in the neutral zone next to the Romulan empire.  However, beyond that little snafu, I would say China.

China, Hong Kong, Japan and Australia.... I guess Australia is the furthest away from NJ.

Germany is the farthest so far. I think it took about a week to get here (NJ) but that was before anyone knew what the Covid virus was back in 2019 or was it 2018, I'd have to check my records to be sure.

Puerto Rico.  I live in California (aka Calizuela).  It was a 1:24 Franklin Mint 1953 Cadillac Eldorado in Pastoral Blue.

Mine would be Europe because of BitCar, known as the world’s first Bitcoin-only auto dealership platform. Far from its company name, BitCar’s products span across the entire auto sector. With Bitcoin, not only can you find and purchase luxury motorbikes and sports cars but also yachts and exotic old-timer classic cars. These include the 1982 Excalibur Phaeton and 1927 Franklin 11B, among others.

@evechamp do you use crypto as a form of even payment? I actually got a few earning from online casinos, I might transfer them to my bitcoin account, and I was wondering if you could help out with this one,

Marty;  You may not have been aware but Klingon Prime subcontracts deliveries to the light phalangied Ferengis; so I'm afraid your Oiseau is gonzo.

One of my earliest buys was the already sold out Exoto red Scuderia Fillipinetti Cobra Daytona Coupe which I got from Germany. That was back in 2004 when my plan was to limit my collection to one example of each of the six Cobra Daytona Coupes built - The record shows that things got a bit out of hand.

Australia. There were a few Classic Carlectables I had to own and at the time (decades ago) Australia was the ONLY source. I have since, however, ordered replicas from around the world but none farther than "the land down under."
