First post!

Welcome to my blog!

I used to collect diecast cars in general as a kid, until around 13 or 14 years old.

As prices rose and selection dwindled, I became disinterested in the hobby and eventually stopped collecting actively.

The beginning of July 2012 marked my return to collecting, and collecting Hot Wheels in particular. The cars that drew me back into the hobby were the Skylines from 2011 (C10 and C110, the former being one that I am still struggling to find at a reasonable price) and the 'zokusha' Mad Manga of 2012. This is partially due to my new-found appreciation for nostalgic J-tin (shout out to Japanese Nostalgic Car!).
