The Car Collection

They say Jay Leno has enough cars that he could drive a different one each day for over a year. When I was a kid, I must've been the Jay Leno of Die-casts. At one point, I had over a thousand Matchbox, Hotwheels, Maisto, and cars of various other brands. Car collecting was my childhood hobby, even as a pre-teen I spent unholy amounts of time playing with and admiring my little cars.

They say Jay Leno has enough cars that he could drive a different one each day for over a year. When I was a kid, I must've been the Jay Leno of Die-casts. At one point, I had over a thousand Matchbox, Hotwheels, Maisto, and cars of various other brands. Car collecting was my childhood hobby, even as a pre-teen I spent unholy amounts of time playing with and admiring my little cars.

These cars had their own little towns, expressways, even campgrounds for the RVs...Somehow, the magic left with puberty...

Somewhere down the line, I lost a solid chunk of my cars. Yet, I still have a lot left and have started collecting again. The magic is back, and I love it.

How many cars do you think are there? I know the real answer...

(I apologize for the camera work ahead of time)


P.S. Most of these cars are available for trade. See something you like? Feel free to ask!
