Hello from Utrecht, the Netherlands
Posted 20 March 2017 - 02:01 PM
I just registered here, so i guess i should introduce myself....
Born and raised here in the Netherlands. I recently became a dad. Being a new parent i prefer to be at home more then i used to be. I decided i should collect small cars.
Back in the 90's i collected a couple of 1:18 diecast model cars. I recently picked up where i left off.
I have a small collection. I only collect american street cars from the 60's and 70's, most are ERTL, Autoworld, Greenlight. I enjoy photography, but i am new to this type of photography.
Collecting US cars pose a slightly bigger challenge here then collecting european cars or formula one.

We are doing well, thanks for asking.
Vielen dank. Ich freu mich, dass Utrecht dir gefällt (Thanks. I'm glad you like it.)
I've been to South FL some years ago. Great place to be. Really enjoyed the everglades, the beaches and scuba diving out of John Pennekamp in Key largo.
It's a 1966 Chevrolet Biscayne L72 (427 cui V8) in a color that i think they call "Aztec Bronze".
Me too, only USA cars, no funny cars or dragsters or anything like that. Only from those two decades. Only 1:18 scale diecast.
I really wanted to narrow it down so i'd have a small collection of cars you don't see everyday, stuff you have to look for a little bit more.
(99% of the people i know have never heard of a chevrolet Biscayne.) This also saves money and space in my house.
I have found Tom's website but haven't bought anything from there yet. I found a couple more, and also marktplaats (kindof dutch e-bay). I'm wondering about belgium and germany based websites though.
I'm currently looking for a yellow 1971 Plymouth Satellite, the one that Daisy Duke drove. I think that'd look nice in my collection.
muchos gracias. saludos desde Países Bajos.
