The roots of this website started back in
my childhood... way back on that Christmas day
in 1985 or 86. That is when I opened my very first packages of
Micro Machines. As a kid,
I had hundreds of them. When I got into my teens, my interest changed
to model cars.
In my late teens, I caught up with the Hot Wheels fever. This was
about the time they introduced their Trea$ure Hunt series.
A couple years later I mistakenly thought I would go ahead and sell off
my Micro Machines,
so I listed my first couple cars in late 1998. My original intent was
to sell off my micros,
and use the pictures to make a virtual museum of my former collection.
site was a small one on Tripod, started in early 1999.
Selling off the
collection was a big mistake. I got caught up in eBay fever, and I ended
up buying more and more with every few I sold! By the end of
2001, I had acquired this domain name. I have to admit, I was
originally a Galoob purist. I used to see the other
brands as junk. Of course, that was before Speedeez and a couple
other higher quality
brands appeared on the market. My collection quickly grew into
Finally some other
hobbies stole my interest away for a while. Then, tragedy struck.
My parents garage burned to the ground while the local fire
department sat around
and picked their noses. I lost about half of my collection. My
parents lost thousands
of antiques and collectibles. This was a real emotional blow...
After over a year feeling
lost and not knowing where to go from there, I had to draw
on the past to learn how to go forward. The original intent of
this site was for a virtual
museum of my collection, and so it will be. The remodel of this
site was started in
March of 2010, and will take a while to complete.
I never really got
into the parallel series, such as the Military sets or the space
series like Star Wars and Star Trek, so there won't be too much info
about these on the site. I have tried to research about the different
cars made by Galoob, and even found some that they misidentified. I
want the information in this site to be as accurate as possible, so if
you think I have an error, don't be afraid to let me know.
I want to give a big
thank you to Steven for the logo design for my website.
He has a site devoted to Gillig
School and Coach Buses if you want to check it out.
