I am 27 years young, married, and have been collecting since my parents gave me my first diecast; a 1995 Earnhardt silver select bank when they both worked at a car dealership that also distributed diecast here in Omaha. I previously worked at the same dealer and have been in the automotive industry since I was 14. I was fairly aware of NASCAR at a young age but its when my collection kicked off with that first diecast that I became a die hard Earnhardt fan. Later my dad became a traveling sales rep for a local company and I would ride along with him and thats when we starting hunting for anything NASCAR so over those years I acquired alot of random cars. I always bought what the dealer could get but I took a break from collecting when Dale died. In the past few years my interest has re-kindled and now I've been searching for the higher-end cars. I recently acquired a 1998 Dale Sr Bass Pro 24k gold elite, and last years big score for me was an Under the Lights elite. I probably paid too much for both but I'm a collector, not a flipper, so seeing them sitting in my display makes it worth it to me.

I have been lurking around here for a while now. I've been a member of other forums whose members jump my case when asking a legitimate question so I feel a little reluctant to say anything. Im happy to say I don't get that vibe from this community. I apologize in advance if I ask something stupid and will contribute when I feel have something of value to contribute.

Thanks,
Jim

I really like how you described yourself. The same exact way applies to me as well when it comes to my collection.
