As some of you might have read my introduction on Oppo already, I had a LaLD Intro planned, and, well, here it is!!
My name is Niko, 27 years old. I daily drive and race a ‘98 Integra Type R and love and breathe cars ever since I could pronounce my first words. In fact, I think my first words were ‘Ford Escort’ (since thats the car my dad had when I was little).
As a small child, I had an enormous collection of Die-Cast models. From matchbox models to Hot Wheels rarities etc. Boxes upon boxes piled up with small cars. Unfortunately, most of it got stolen/sold. In that age, I didn’t really know what I had.
Fast forwarding 20 years and my ‘collection’ exists of a couple of older machines that have sort of survived the batteries, the abuse and the neglect.
I have to admit, LaLD and the LaLD community, if it werent for you guys, I probably would not have looked twice at the older models I had sitting around. Gotta give credit where credit is due. And further more, a big thanks! I have decided to do some repairwork on some of them, adding a touch of paint and trying to find some missing parts for some.
Again, a big thank you!
Please, enjoy the pictures!
Friendly greetings from Holland!
What I’m pretty much trying to do now is, kinda, up the collection by buying interresting stuff at car-related adventures/visits that I do. The last 4 pictures contain purchases from the Belgium Automobile Museum, the Nordschleife and Dusseldorf Classic Car Remise.
