Founder & President
On his own Macintosh Performa, Tony Keusseyan created a catalog retailer called Exoto Tifosi, which grew to carry 15,000 items. The challenges of shipping high-end delicate models around the world lead him to a decision that would change the hobby forever. He and his brother Jack would manufacture their own models. Thus the highly detailed line of Exoto racing replicas was born. "Furious" detail as he prefers to call it.
At the time, 1:18 scale was lower priced quality than the 1:24 of the Mints. It was Tony's pivotal decision to create masterpieces in 1:18 that helped transform the image and the potential of this larger scale. For this and the flame that burns bright within him to create models worthy of collectors' passion, he belongs in our Hall of Fame!
