Hello, I am Australiancarlover (also known as "JDM my Ride"). As my user name implies, I like Australian and JDM cars, but I have collected Hot wheels cars of various nationalities and Years. In my 100+ piece collection of Hot wheels I have placed a wide Variety of vehicles from The UK, Latin America, The US, Japan and of course, Australia. I like to collect castings that portray real vehicles from around the World. Many of the Castings I own, I try to keep in good condition, while I frequently neglect others.
