Hi all! My name is Aristotle, I'm a new member and a longtime lurker. A little bit about myself. I live in New Jersey, my father is the reason I'm a gearhead. He raced Porsche's and currently still is with a 2005 997S in the National Auto Sport Association. I got my first car when I was 20, a 2000 Porsche Boxster S, had that for a year, sold it and now I am a proud and content owner of a 2006 Cayman S. Love that car to death and find every opportunity to drive it!

My father collected 1:18 scale models like a madman when I was young (about 110 to date), consisting of maisto/kyosho/burago/Anso/UT models/Carousel/Minichamps and one autoart model. He bought me a few when I was younger and for the last 6 months I've been collecting all my dreams. I have about 11 I bought on my own so far and steadily increasing!

I love Formula 1, I'm a big Senna/Hakkinen fan. My first model I bought in August 2019 was a minichamps 1:18 McLaren MP4/5B and from then on I got hooked. I love cleaning them and staring at them endlessly. Still a bit of a rookie in the customization department, lowered a few of my maisto's and I'm now avidly looking around to gain some knowledge before I do my first wheel swap!

Looking forward to explore other people's collections in the forums!
