I thought I would tell a little about myself. I mostly collect sports cars from the 60's to the 90's. My favorite brands are Alfa Romeo, Lancia, and Ferrari. I have a sweet  spot for Porsche from that period as well. I like to collect cars that connect emotionally with me, whether because they are related to my childhood, because of their aesthetic, or because they are particularly important in the history of automobile. I also love rally cars and their relatives. My collection is made of Autoart, Kyosho, Minichamps, and CMC. However, due to the current prices and the issue of paint rash I might switch to composite with openings from Norev and Solido. As a sports cars enthusiast I drive a Prius of course!

..............I drive a Prius - hilarious, but who cares as long as you are happy.

Nice to hear more about you Pat, and you share similiar interests automotive wise. Like you I prefer Italian marques but have found that over the years my 1/18 collection spans far and wide. The Autoarts, Minichamps, CMC and Kyoshos are hard to beat and it is a shame that paint rash does afflict some of these models.

Looking forward to hopefully seeing more of your collection, welcome to the DX horde

I don't care about what people think. I find it funny that I love sports car and drive a Prius. It's the perfect commuter being economical, reliable, and rather comfortable. Glad to see we share the same interests. We might share more as I used to live in Australia. It's a country dear to my heart. And yes, I think you will see more of my collection. It's a long process as taking pictures take a long time.
