I've been collecting diecast for over 20 years now and have built up quite a collection. I started out collecting Hot Wheels but gave up in the late 90s from trying to keep up with every colour and variation. Around that time I discovered the Johnny Lightning quality and continued to collect up them until about last year. They stopped selling them in Canada and the quality has fallen off dramatically. Recently I've started buying Code 3 Collectibles. It seems like since the company announced their demise, the value of these diecast has come down quite a bit, making them somewhat affordable. I have also recently taken up photography and am trying to take pictures of my collection to share with you all. Here are the blogs that I am updating at the moment.
