I took out all my diecast cars and placed them out on a table one afternoon about 3 years ago. I took some pictures. They certainly look a bit crazy to those who aren’t into it. Taking them out of the case, taking pictures and putting them back took me the whole afternoon.
Michael, how many more cars did you get since 3 years ago?
I think I add about 8-10 1:43 and 1-2 1:18 per year.
I lost count of how many I have. I basically have 4 groups of collection. 1) Old Toronto collection (prior to 2001). 2) SJ collection 1 which contains 70% of my SJ collection (2001-2006). 3) SJ collection 2 which contains the rest of the 2001-2006 collection plus the 2006-2007 addition in SJ. 4) New Toronto collection.
All my SJ collections are still in shipping boxes and I also stored some of my older Toronto collection. I ran out of room. 1, 2 and 3 are stored separately. They will be all displayed again after I have my own house.
If you get marry, you may not able to display all your cars even you have your own house, or unless you have a really big house.
