Mustangs (16 cars)

My first love has always been the Ford Mustang. To that end, I try to collect every race-inspired diecast I can find.

Other Cars

Beginning in 2001, this is where most of my newest acquisitions will be. I also no longer collect with such frenetic enthusiasm, so this list will probably grow very slowly. The model would have to be REALLY special for me to purchase in 1/18 scale (they're starting to cost A LOT), so look for most of my new stuff to be in 1/43 scale, or smaller.
