a new question: from who did you get your love for cars ?
I know I am the only one in my entire family who is in love with the car/modelcar from a very young age.
When my mother shows me pictures of me from way back then, there's always a modelcar in them, too...
Other people in my family never seemed to care much for them.
Although my grandfather from my mother's side always had English Fords, beginnen with a Popular and then to Zephyr and Zodiac.
So it could be I inherited something from him.
