A brief history of how I became so knowledgeable and interested in the world of die-cast model collecting

It all started when I was a child around 8 years old. Remember cars like Standard 10’s, Victor 101’s, Victor F-Series, Standard Vanguard, Austin A40, Austin Cambridge etc? You get the idea. During a week whilst on Holiday back in the 1960’s, I can recall driving my parents mad by naming virtually every car/van I spied. During this holiday my parents bought me two models: a Ford Mustang and Bedford C.A. This was the start of the collecting bug.

Now hopefully a new chapter starts.
