My current collection was started in November of 2014 after Jimmie Johnson won the fall Texas race in the red vest car. I knew after that race that I wanted to get that car and it got me wanting to get back into collecting die cast again. My dad and I first starting collecting cars back in the early 90's. Most of them during this time were just racing champion cars, but it was fun going around to the stores and finding cars we did not have in the collection. Over time life got in the way and the collecting slowed down. We still collected some items over time for his collection, but it was mainly Jimmie Johnson and his championship cars and championship items. I inherited his collection in 2010, but it sat in totes for a couple of years until 2014 when I was ready to pull them out and start enjoying them again. My first task was finding all of Jimmie Johnson's championship cars. I thought at first that there were only 6 championship cars total, but soon realized after searching eBay that there were way more with all the Elites, ARCs, and special finishes. Learning about all the different types of cars lead me to Lionel racing and I joined RCCA in January of 2015. Since that time, my collection has grown quite a bit and continues to grow. Can't wait to get all my cars registered on the garage here and get all the pictures upload.
