    I think i'm addicted to buying matchbox cars (for my 2 year old son of course) My wife is complaining that he has too many cars so this week I only bought a Subaru WRX, Nissan 370Z, Mini Cooper, trophy truck, BMW M3 race car, Audi A4, Honda Integra and a Hot Wheels bus.

    I make sure he learns the make and model of each of the cars he gets, that's education right?

    Yeah cool, His favourites are the muscle car collection with 67 Mustang, 64 Impala low rider, Charger, Firebird and Chevy Nomad. I'm not big on all these strange Hot Wheels cars that are way out. I just like real cars.

    I am the same. My wife has learned this and is also on board. Most of the cars come from her.

    I have quite a few muscle cars, you're making me want to get the camera out again!!

    Hotwheels people. Manufacture sets are the go. Knowing when to stop is the problem. There is 2 different gran turismo sets too. Both pretty cool.

    Guilty of this also. I even kept some for myself and out of the kids reach. Haven't bought any for a while now, as all we didn't have were all the weird custom hotweels ones. Will have to have a look at whats on the shelves next time I'm out.

    For the kids of course:whistling:

    A couple of months ago i competed in my very first real life 24 hour endurance race in an Audi A4 with @Killercarlcox69 . To commemorate this event i decided to buy some model cars for my collection.
    The car livery was based on an old German touring car and looked like this.

    I managed to find a very rare 1/18 model of that exact car in perfect condition to display in my home

    I also got my hands on a 1/43 version of the car and tried to replicate our car the best i could.
