Hi,
I am Winston, 27, from Bombay. I love anything and everything on 4 wheels with an engine on either end. Hospital trolleys do not qualify.
I collect 1:18 diecast and always on the look out to boost up the collection. Got abt 55 and the madness doesnt seem to wear off. *
I drive around in a 1994 Fiat or a 2002 Siena 1.6 when traffic permits. #@*&#* rickshaws.
Cheers to all here. Drive/ ride safely.
Winston

Welcome aboard Winston

Great to have another avid car collector on our site. Look out for Dippy who like you has around 50 model cars. Quite a few others also own some fantastic model cars.

My fav? Get me a 1:12 or Ferrari F-40 and i'll be more than happy

Keep revvin

Thanx for the welcome guys.

Dippy and me have been in competition for almost a year now. Dippy is ferrari's biggest fan and i am of mercedes.

Would love to have a 500SL some day with miles and miles of open road. That would be nirvana for me.

Regards,
Winston

Speaking of models...have you guys checked out the shop near Akbarally's at Fort. WOW, they have an amazing collection and can bring down specific orders as well!

Like dippy said, its gift centre at fort. he has a good collection of car, bike and aircraft models. Boeings and DCs. So if any of u guys are into planes, you can have a dekko.
No sign of the 62 yet Dippy. even the colors arent that great. Worst of all, no aircraft style seat. Unless its a hidden feature.
