Yeah!! 1st entry..
Here its all about die-cast car..
Scale 1:56 - 1:64..
HotWheels, MatchBox and many others..

Here's some of the history 'bout HotWheels from Wikipedia:

Hot Wheels is a brand of die cast toy car, introduced by American toymaker Mattel in 1968. It was the primary competitor of Johnny Lightning and Matchbox until 1996, when Mattel acquired rights to the Matchbox brand from Tyco. The original, and now famous, Hot Wheels logo was designed by California artist Rick Irons, who at that time worked for Mattel.

Hot Wheels are die-cast model vehicles manufactured by Mattel and were introduced in 1968. Originally the cars and trucks were manufactured to approximately 1:64 scale and designed to be used on associated Hot Wheels track sets, but by 1970 a series of 1:43 scale 'Gran Toros' were introduced and more recently a range of highly detailed adult collector vehicles, including replicas of Formula One and NASCAR cars, have found success. However the brand remains most famous for the small scale free-rolling models of custom hot rods and muscle cars it has produced since the range first appeared.

Well I just started to collect all those cars around 2 months ago..
Most of it are 1:64 scale..
For the first time.. I bought "Shift Kicker" just for fun..
Later it started as a habit to buy any nice cars that I found..

The other reason why I started this hobby is bcoz I'm being poisoned by those guys in Lowyat.net - HotWheels thread..
Most of them have really2 nice cars.. Damn I'm so jealous.. >:P
Currently my collection is still quite small..
I have around 55 cars.. but it's growing in abnormal rate..!!
My wife already 'bising' with my collection.. :P
